Common Core: People vs. Big Government, Big Business, and Billionaires
With recent public hearings on national Common Core education standards by Wisconsin lawmakers in October, another element of the national battle is becoming increasingly obvious: This has become a fight largely between concerned citizens and parents on one side, with Big Business, Big Government, and a cadre of establishment billionaires like Bill Gates on the other. This week, efforts of pro-Common Core forces to demonize the grassroots opposition — which transcends the traditional political spectrum — reached the point of absurdity. Citizens and even lawmakers, though, are now hitting back at bizarre and inaccurate allegations made in an apparent effort to dismiss public concerns about the nationalized standards.

Supporters of Common Core who testified at the Wisconsin hearings were, for the most part at least, paid by taxpayers through government education bureaucracies. Those state and local ...

First of all, why would you Christians be worked up at all about this, except for the John Birch Society is against it?
1. Aren't you suppose to be homeschooling or sending you children to Christian schools? As I pointed out before perhaps homeschoolers may very well be the biggest fans of this, it gives them a guideline that they can tightly, or more likely, loosely use as a planning guide.
2. For those who are going to use the public schools. Do you mean your children aren't smart enough or you teachers too incompetent to implement this plan? (I have feeling it is probably both. )
3. Actually, why aren't you demanding higher standards? Apparently the Vermont school system has a higher standard for literature than is what is given in common core.

"you Christians" Interesting phrase from you, Jim. Slip?

1)Homeschoolers don't need Washington guidelines, they have higher standards.

2) Teachers oppose it because it doesn't let them teach to the need, but requires them to teach to the test.

3) Opposing CC IS demanding higher standards.

We have dumbed down enough. That's enough reason to oppose it.

I have pointed out the education of John Stuart Mill, --every Christian parent would hope their children to be as intelligent as him, but not to be completely lacking in the wisdom of God such as he was, The education of John Stuart Mill. Neither he nor his father was Christian, and his father's education practice were too harsh.

Parents... Teach your children. Beware of this. The man who was the brainchild of this was heavily influenced by Alice A. Bailey. A one world religionist.
Look it up!

Hey, I'm tired of having illegal immigrants taking all the low-paying, unskilled jobs, it's time we turn out a lot of ignorant Whites to carry out this menial labor! :-7
So that's why you like Common Core. I thought it was because you wanted more uneducated Democrats.

It’s also important to understand that the CCSS are NOT curriculum. Standards are simply a set of knowledge and skills that a student should master at each grade level. They reflect the “what” a student should know. Curriculum refers to “how” a student will be taught. The CCSS do not require that educators teach with specific materials or methods.

Since the ignorant outnumber the educated, Common Core might get defeated in some areas. This is the problem with Democracy, it caters to the lowest common denominator, egged on by demagogues. Now, there are probably some problems with it, I understand there's a fawning acceptance of Evolution in Common Core. To have a unified standard across the country is a good idea. I'm even somewhat surprised I --mostly-- support the educational establishment on this one.

Anything to whip the masses up, and ignore some of the important issues such as Sam’s Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party.

Alright to end the day here, well I think I am anyway, what is really, really, really important? Putting people on The Roman Road! You who are good at explaining and talking to people don't get distracted by politics, and remember what is really important!
