Common Core Opponents Winning, Polls Show
As the grassroots uprising against the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of schools continues to grow, public sentiment is quickly turning against the widely criticized Common Core standards — especially among parents with school-age children. Indeed, since just November of last year, the shallow “support” that did exist for the controversial education scheme has plunged dramatically, a new survey showed. Other polls found similar results.

The latest nationwide public opinion data on national standards, released by Rasmussen Reports on June 26, represents another devastating blow to Common Core proponents — primarily Big Business, special interests, and the Obama administration. Despite pouring billions of dollars in taxpayer and special-interest funding into deceptive marketing gimmicks and propaganda to build support for Obama’s education “reform” schemes, opposition to Common Core ...

I've been reading Conform by Glenn Beck and it is shocking all of the things Common Core forces on our kids! READ CONFORM BY GLENN BECK! It's available everywhere books are sold.

Ah, you pointed out a left winger's opinion of the program which is fine by the way. I was just thinking of the complaints they had about it. So it is well that you pointed out my oversight on what was in over-glowing review the article. By the way, in the main u s news and world report article on common core you will find what some of the people were complaining about. Also again on that other article which was fairly good on giving the details on common core.

I do not remember any requirements in common core to say how great the LGBT arguments were. The only thing I saw on SermonAudio was about a school superintendent who took it upon himself to include strange material into the students studies, and that had nothing to do a common core. As I think I pointed out in that thread what would that have to do prepairing students for college and for the workplace?

I haven't looked at everything over on the Common Core subject matter, so if you can find where it is officially supported various immoral activities, please point it out to all of us! I have very little doubt that evolution may get put somewhere in the science curriculum , but I'm not sure of that. Good reason to homeschool while using common core as a guideline.

Ah, UPS, please point out the errors in the article I put up from NY Times.
ok here we go

"What’s not warranted is the welling hysteria: from right-wing alarmists, who hallucinate a federal takeover of education and the indoctrination of a next generation of government-loving liberals..."

Not right wing alarmist, it is parents who care about their kids and don't like the left wing pro LGBT and other liberal agenda being pushed in the curriculum. Plus he implies that it is too hard. The reason it is hard is because they are throwing out the way you and I learned math and put in its place some convoluted system where right answers don't matter, really math is an exact science but now we say the correct answer isn't important? The problem is it is dumbing down the system not improving it. Grades,a measure of your performance, are not important. Remember, the educators involved in this project left before it was finalized due to the direction it was going. Ask jpw about project 21 and CC, I am sure she will give you an earful. This is not heading us the right direction.

Now, your turn. please point out the errors in the article in the New American. Thanks

To re-quote, "As the grassroots uprising against the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of schools continues to grow, public sentiment is quickly turning against the widely criticized Common Core standards..." They are the only place I found this commentary! It is partisan!!! But, according to Wikipedia, the founder quit because it was becoming biased towards the Democrats.

The standards of Common Core and not widely criticized. Looking at the NY Times article, it's the implementation that is widely attacked, If you look at the highly respected U.S. News, NOT A propaganda rag for the Birchers, http://www.usnews.com/news/special-reports/a-guide-to-common-core (A Guide to Common Core). You will find this link, http://www.usnews.com/news/special-reports/a-guide-to-common-core/articles/2014/02/27/who-is-fighting-for-common-core (Who Is Fighting for Common Core?). I would wish SA would use more respected new sources -- but then perhaps they wouldn't get as many comments? Mike, "The New American" is wholly owned subsidiary of JBS.

So, Mike of N.Y., no this article was definitely a propaganda piece by the JBS.

Ah, Jim, please point out the Rasmussen poll connection to the Birchers. False accusations mean nothing, and of course are unbecoming a Christian. The Cause above all, eh?

UPS, I know that you are one of those people who can read through an article and toss out what you think is inaccurate. I didn't like the flattering article that NYTimes had on Rand Paul, so I discounted a lot of that. But the three opinions, I think that was it, had some rational complaints about Common Core, nice to have a different viewpoint as I pointed out in other threads, e.g., A Guide to Common Core or Understanding "Common Core": Standards and Backlash. The blurb that SA put shows that the article was unbalanced, put out by wingnuts, as pointed out in, http://www.politicalresearch.org/2013/12/16/the-tea-party-the-john-birch-society-and-the-fear-of-mob-rule-an-interview-with-claire-conner/ (The Tea Party, the John Birch Society, and the Fear of “Mob Rule”: An Interview with Claire Conner).

Nice try with the old guilt by association gimmick, Jim, but if you'd bothered to pay attention, you'd see the New American was referencing the Rasmussen Reports poll. Rasmussen is not the least bit John Birch. Keep trying, though. We need the senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

The NYT, their motto is all the views that is fit to print. A newspaper filled with distortions and half truths and they wonder why their subscriptions keep going down. The New American, on the other hand, has proved to be a reliable source. As usual liberals are Machiavellian and believe the ends justifies the means when it comes to distorting the news. There are exceptions but they only prove the rule.

well for one thing, it is not the mouthpiece of the John Birch Society. by the way, if you read any of the opinions in the New York Times article, they all displayed a varying degree of hostility to common core! you seem to mistake me for a liberal, but of course and John Birch ideology I would be since in many ways I fall into the Sam's Club Republican category, q.v., http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/10/29/sam-s-club-republicans-vs-the-tea-party.html (Sam’s Club Republicans Vs. the Tea Party). so you may even like the first article, The New York Times one.
