Pro-Common Core Deception Falling Apart

Facing a growing avalanche of grassroots opposition from teachers, parents, and voters across the political spectrum, pro-Common Core forces — Big Business, Big Media, the Obama administration, and more — are striking back at their critics, oftentimes with outright deception and utterly ridiculous claims. However, under even a modicum of scrutiny, the absurd allegations and unsubstantiated statements made by proponents of the Obama administration-funded nationalization of education standards promptly fall apart. It appears, then, that while Common Core supporters have the big bucks — much of it from U.S. taxpayers, most of the rest from Big Business and the Gates Foundation — advocates for local control and proper education have the truth on their side.

From the outset, the shadowy development and nationwide imposition of the widely criticized national K-12 standards have been shrouded in ...

Well, not trying to make other people's children as ignorant as their own. If the aforementioned children aren't getting the attention they should, perhaps home schooling groups can help.

Actually just reading what SA put up what the John Birch Org magazine (or they are at least one of its sponsours) said, they are getting hysterical because they're loosing the fight.
One good thing for homeschoolers they can ignore the hysteria and adopt and adapt whatever they want out Common Core.
If the American Federation of Teachers union, and the NEA are for it, it must be good.

FOr Jim who seems to have issues with the New American site (yet uses the NYT ????) here are some websites that should be more palatable for you.

Your correct some kids and their parents are incredibly ignorant and stupid. But, I assume Common Core was made for the average kid, and so he wouldn't graduate as an ignoramus from high school, and even worse he is so ignorant he thinks he can go to tech school (you do have to be able to read manuals and such) or college. Common Core is a great idea, perhaps some of the methods implementing it aren't.

The problem as ever in education and the so called "Common Core" is that you can never find a standard human being anywhere.

They are all different.

Isn't that annoying?

the issue at hand is not Eisenhower but common core.

how would one recognize tribulation? (if one has exempted themselves from it?) is it not the work of the flesh to say that one doesn't have to suffer for Christ?

I'm glad my tablets are providing amusement for somebody anyway. apparently SermonAudio I was able to interpret the URL,

https://m.sodahead.com/united-states/ron-paul-the-john-birch-society---whats-going-on/question-2406371/

The commentator pointed out that the John Birch Society even called President Eisenhower a communist. so, while I will not give a blanket indorsement to the site, this article about the John Birch Society and Ron Paul seems to be quite good.

Ron Paul & the John Birch Society - What's Going On?it seems to me Mike that I have made comments at various other points on this forum about common core. I have even pointed out that some liberals are unhappy with the way that the federal government is handling it. I saw the day program from CBS in fact.

but, do I really care much about what a John Birch Society publication has to say about it, of course not!so why don't I bring up some of your favorite people, and since randy what's the copy his father so much, this article is appropriate
