Common Core was supposed to have been implemented without people asking too many questions...
Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan, with a lot of help from Jeb Bush almost pulled it off.. But a small group of concerned parents started digging through the details, and found things tha scared the hell out of them.. A couple years ago they started reaching out to other parents, and telling them about privacy violations, untested standards that were not as the government claimed bench marked to anything- Or at least nothing the administration wants us to know about..
The Obama Administration dumped $5,000,000,000.00 or so dollars into it, then claimed it wasn’t actually a Federal Program.. That would be after Duncan and the President made Obama’s Race to the Top money contingent on states signing up for the scheme
As parents started reviewing Common Core Aligned Textbooks they found chapter after chapter of hard left political indoctrination, incomprehensible math and even whole chapters promoting Islam as the one true religion..
The data mining of a child’s personal information is so extensive the only comparison I can make is to the record keeping system used by Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich. It literally starts with a child’s birth weight and follows them into the workforce.. Every grade on every assignment, every trip to the principals office, even the frequency of trips to the bathroom..
Parent’s, especially mothers revolted. In several states the plan, which was never approved either by Congress or the State Legislatures, was put on hold..
As another one of Obama’s Grand Schemes started falling apart, Duncan did what Washington Democrats do best these days
He Blamed Whitey
“It’s fascinating to me that some of the pushback is coming from, sort of, white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were, and that’s pretty scary,” Duncan said. “You’ve bet your house and where you live and everything on, ‘My child’s going to be prepared.’ That can be a punch in the gut
Big Surprise Huh??
This is coming from the a clown who ran the Chicago School System.. where more more kids drop out of school than pass standardized tests.. Before becoming Secretary of Education that that was his only claim to fame.
Gretchen over at the Missouri Education Watchdog has more on the story..
