“The American Enterprise Institute’s Rick Hess recently wrote about Common Core’s “half-truths,” which Greg Forster pointedly demonstrated he should have called “lies.” These include talking points essential to selling governors and other state leaders on the project, such as that Common Core is: “internationally benchmarked” (“well, we sorta looked at what other nations do but that didn’t necessarily change anything we did”); “evidence based” (“we know there is not enough research to undergird any standards, so we just polled some people and that’s our evidence“); “college- and career-ready” (“only if you mean community-college ready“); “rigorous” (as long as rigorous indicates “rigid”); and “high-performing nations nationalize education” (so do low-performing nations).”
Obliterating Parent Rights
“Common Core has revealed the contempt public “servants” have for the people they are supposedly ruled by—that’d be you and me. Indiana firebrand Heather Crossin, a mom whose encounter with Common Core math turned her into a nationally known activist, went with other parents to their private-school principal in an attempt to get their school’s new Common Core textbooks replaced.”
“A red-haired mother of four kids read to our Indiana legislature selections from a Common Core-recommended book called “The Bluest Eyes,” by Toni Morrison. I’m a grown, married woman who enjoys sex just fine, thank you, but I sincerely wish I hadn’t heard her read those passages. I guess some people don’t find sympathetically portrayed rape scenes offensive, but I do. So I won’t quote them at you. If you have a perv-wish, Google will fill you in. Other objectionable books on the Common Core-recommended list include “Make Lemonade” by Virginia Euwer Wolff, “Black Swan Green” by David Mitchell, and “Dreaming in Cuban” by Cristina Garcia.”
Distancing Parents and Children
“A recent study found that the Common Core model of education results in parents who are less engaged in their kids’ education and express more negative attitudes about schools and government. Does it need to be noted that kids desperately need their pre-existing, natural bond with their parents to get a good start in life, and anything that attacks this is bad for both the kids and society?”  – source
Much of the findings about Common Core in this article, come from a very gifted and faithful journalist, Alex Newman of newamerican.com. The title of his piece is:
“UN, Obama, and Gates Are Globalizing Education Via Common Core”
“For over a year now, Americans have been up in arms over the Obama administration’s unconstitutional efforts to bribe and bludgeon state governments into surrendering control over K-12 education through the controversial so-called “Common Core” national standards — and the outrage is still growing. A peek beneath the surface, however, reveals that the nationalization of American schools is actually just one component of a much broader global agenda being pushed by the Obama administration, the United Nations, Bill Gates, and others: the globalization of education.”
In fact, just this week, an invitation-only conference hosted by former Florida Governor and pro-Common Core ringleader Jeb Bush entitled “Globalization of Higher Education” took place in Texas. Among the attendees: Hillary Clinton, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, former World Bank President Robert Zoellick, UNESCO officials, university presidents, and more. While higher education appears to be the next target of reformers, the globalization of K-12 schooling is on the verge of completion — at least if the American people do not rise up and stop it.”  – source
Are you surprised that Jeb Bush is promoting Common Core at every turn? I’m certainly not. I believe that he is following in the footsteps of his father, as an eager participant in ushering in the New World Order. Do NOT let this man fool you.
The globalists at the UN have been very busy, openly plotting to impose what many call the “World Core Curriculum” and at the same time, eugenicists are working to drastically reduce the world’s population. Don’t you find it interesting that these globalists, and their plans for our world, are not exposed by the National news media? I think it’s time for those of us who do care about these NWO initiatives, to state the truth – that the people who report the news are TOLD what to say. They are given the narrative, and commanded to stick to it.
We hear people say that George Soros controls the news. That is not here say – it’s TRUTH! The billionaires DO control what is divulged to the public. The useful idiots are there to do the bidding for those who own them. If you are not using the Internet, and credible websites to get the REAL news — you are deluded.
COMMON CORE WAS PUT IN PLACE FOR KIDS TO FAIL
That’s a pretty strong statement, right? I will prove this to be true.
On January 22 of this year, the Washington Post ran a story on a teacher who is finally speaking out about Common Core. Jennifer Rickert is a 6th grade teacher of 22 years in NY State. She has had it with the curriculum, and she is speaking her mind. She may very well pay a high price for doing so. I have the utmost respect for this woman.
The title of the article in the Washington Post is:
TEACHER: COMMON CORE TEST SET KIDS UP TO FAIL
“Clearly, this is a set-up for the kids to fail. As students learn, they make sense out of new information through schema. Schemata are cognitive frameworks to which they can add to, or modify, as they learn new information. One could compare the requirement for children to understand these passages to expecting them to master algebra before establishing number sense; there is no foundation to build knowledge upon.”
Over the last few years, I have seen many parents cry about their child’s New York State test scores, and I have seen students cry because they can’t complete the tests. I began to question the validity of the assessments as they became more and more daunting for my students, but I believed that if I continued to incorporate the Common Core Learning Standards and provide the highest quality instruction, my students would be evaluated fairly. During this period, I kept the faith in our great state of New York and our educational leaders, hoping that there would be a fair resolution for the children.
Optimistically, I thought that if I remained professional, continuing to comply with the mandates, eventually things would change. So, I remained quiet. Today, I am a broken woman.”  – source
