Skip to comments.The Truth about Common Core (Bill Ayers)
Posted on 04/06/2013 6:34:15 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
I just heard another Republican politico, a state senator here in Georgia, at a meeting, claim that Common Core is not a federalized education curriculum, but a state-led education reform initiative.
He could have been reading from a press release sent by the Obama Department of Education.
In reality, Common Core was attached to millions of dollars in stimulus funds that were dangled by the feds before the states in a contest called Race to the Top during the 2009 economic crisis. The attached Common Core standards were not even written when states signed up. Writing the standards and attached tests are education experts whose philosophies align with Weatherman/terrorist-turned-education professor Bill Ayers. Ayers close colleague, Linda Darling-Hammond, was head of the education transition team during the 2008 campaign. Now she is overseeing the development of national tests.
This initiative was waiting in the wings, already lined up by Hillary Clinton before Bill Clinton even took office (thanks to the largesse of the Gates Foundation and others). The Gates Foundation has poured tens of millions of dollars into education efforts here in Georgia (as they have in other states). But we are simply to believe the talking point that proponents of Common Core have put out about this being an effort to raise and align standards, so children going from state to state can be assured of keeping up with their peers in other states.
I took the opportunity at this meeting to hand out copies of my report for Accuracy in Media, Terrorist Professor Bill Ayers and Obamas Federal School Curriculum. Many of the people in the room were concerned about education and probably did not know that the misleadingly named Common Core offers disguised opportunities to advance an anti-American agenda through literature, and even math; and it dumbs down standards.
Few people have actually looked at the Common Core compliant curriculum materials being developed and sold. Typical are adaptations of popular adult nonfiction books like Fast Food Nation, the socialist tract, Nickel and Dimed, and books about teen idol Justin Bieber.

Of course it’s “state led” don’t be silly.
States are merely administrative districts of the Federal government.
(do I have to add /sarc ?)
Thanks for posting —the education system is being VERY cagey about this new nationalized curriculum.
From what I’ve seen and heard, I don’t like it one bit. I received a sample written question from the “new” CCI-based state test and it was about Global Warming — the question implied that anyone that didn’t accept Global warming was crazy. This was for high school social studies — the state test consisted of ONE written question —kid has 70 minutes to answer it ON a computer.
It’s going to be a nightmare to implement.
Home School. Home School. Home School!!!
Why is this dweeb getting press time....Oh, he supports the dear leader.
Documentation File on the harmful impact of the Counterculture of Obamanation on America.
Barry Soetoro, aka B. Hussein Obama, 5 days before the end of GWB’s Presidential term, said: We are five days away from FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
Going on 5 years now, the best friends that Obama could have had to help him achieve his above stated dastardly goal were the RINO leadership in the US House and Senate, AND THEY ARE STILL IN POWER!
IMHO, the Counterculture of Obamanation will continue to destroy America for as long as the US Congressional RINOs allow it to, and not one minute more - - - - .
Just listened to Holly Swanson. She’s a supposed expert on Education For Sustainability—The “green” movement in our schools. She says it’s nothing BUT brainwashing and indoctrination. (The “Green” agenda promotes communism. The “Green” agenda IS Humanism.)
She wrote “Training For Treason”(and “Set Up and Sold Out”), a look at Common Core and C-Scope in education going on now in our schools and is trying to sound the alert.
She mentioned that John F’ing Kerry founded “Second Nature” in 1993-a policy of indoctrination in our schools towards communism, with Anthony Cortese’s help.
I have a lot of research to do on this woman, but she seems to be trying to awaken people to what this “greening” of our schools really amounts to, and being in Georgia, I’m concerned because it seems that our Governor thinks this is a wonderful thing to implement, and I don’t think he knows what the hell is going on—like MOST politicians.
“Second Nature was founded in Boston in 1993 by a small group of forward-thinking leaders that included Dr. Anthony D. Cortese, Senator John F. Kerry (D-MA), Teresa Heinz Kerry, Bruce Droste, and others. This group sought to establish an organization dedicated to bringing about the change in society that is vital to the success and livelihood of every current and future living being: a change for a just and sustainable future.
We began with a multimillion dollar outreach and advocacy effort to catalyze such transformative change — change that would have universities produce students prepared for character and citizenship as well as commerce and career in the 21st century.”
Like most POLs, dumb as dirt or are open Traitors.
This is the best reason to totally eliminate the US Department of Education (re-education)
My sixth grader took a test like that this week, as his school was selected by the school district to try it out. He was irritated because the essay test was on the computer. It seems that, despite computers in the classrooms since kindergarten, no one every actually taught the kids to type, much less type quickly. They know the hand positions, but, for many of them, it’s hunt and peck or looking at their keyboard instead of the screen.
Sounds like a brilliant plan for whoever got the computer contract and the test development contract. And a lousy idea for the kids.
Actually, since Rio the "Green" agenda has actually been, originally, the environmental tile of the old Communist Party platform of the 1980's, rewritten by Canadian Communist Maurice Strong "upside down": i.e., instead of the COMINTERN platform's being the core and its environmental planking (all of it calls for guess what, strong management under State control for this, that, the other "environmental" excuse) the window dressing, the old window dressing is now the platform, but it still supports the same assumptions and premises, so it really hasn't changed.
What changed at Rio is that Al Gore attended the conference and fell in love with Maurice Strong's old wine in new skins. Of course, Gorebot was predisposed, what with his very pink family associations with the late Occidental (Oxy) Petroleum CEO Armand Hammer, Stalin's man in the Fortune 500.
The real Communists were never demoralized by the fall of the Soviet Empire. They just kept chugging along with their trojan horses, Slick Willie Clinton and Magic Negro Obama. And, of course, the smartest woman lawyer in America, Hildabeast.
