How Bill Gates pulled off the swift Common Core revolution

The pair of education advocates had a big idea, a new approach to transform every public-school classroom in America. By early 2008, many of the nation’s top politicians and education leaders had lined up in support.

But that wasn’t enough. The duo needed money — tens of millions of dollars, at least — and they needed a champion who could overcome the politics that had thwarted every previous attempt to institute national standards.

So they turned to the richest man in the world.

On a summer day in 2008, Gene Wilhoit, director of a national group of state school chiefs, and David Coleman, an emerging evangelist for the standards movement, spent hours in Bill Gates’s sleek headquarters near Seattle, trying to persuade him and his wife, Melinda, to turn their idea into reality. ...

The state and it's minions only seek to control you, by whatever means necessary, and the uber rich will always pull the strings.

Strat, first of all I don't have that much use for most infamous recent robber baron, Bill Gates. He's no more, and I would say less controlling than the Koch brothers, in fact it was a good thing that the Obama administration was looking into the tax situation of the front organizations of the Koch brothers and their ilk, State conservative groups plan US-wide assault on ducation, health and tax. I will disagree with "The Gardian" using the word, "conservative," "reactionary," would be a better word, and that is almost complimentary

Also, these groups trying to get vouchers for the evil parochial school system, q.v., Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No..

These standards and comparisons are well known even without B. Gates, e.g., American Schools vs. the World: Expensive, Unequal, Bad at Math.

"academic standards"- Generic term meaning this is what we what you to think. On the other hand, teaching a student how to think, which should be a goal of proper education, cannot be standardized.

College freshmen needing remedial classes are those who learned how to study for tests, rather than learn the subject matter. Much like Common Core-uption wants to do at the national level.

Textbook publishers and software publishers like Common Core-ruption for one reason. It is much more profitable to cater to one large market rather than to a large number of small markets. Innovation is not needed. Naturally, Gates would be in favor of this. Rich is never rich enough. You like rich liberals, though, right Jim?

true to his spiritual father and also his physical father, a leader in planned parenthood years ago.... and so he brings his foundation to the world through vaccines and gm grain and common core. he's true to his philosophy. evangelicals have yet to understand it.

Bill Gates like many of his kind wants to shut the door behind him and make sure nobody can achieve what he did in a free country....money does that I guess.

Common core is not about Education but about conformity and submission to the state,to have the correct thoughts,opinions and values to fit into the new society as a useful tool.
