Parents reject Common Core indoctrination and lawmakers in many states agree
Examiner ^ | Feb. 3, 2014 | Martha

Common Core State Standards are under pressure by parents and lawmakers are getting the message. They are using legislation to boot the U.S. Department of Education’s indoctrination of students in their districts.

KEYWORDS: commoncore; educators; parents; rejectcommoncore; students
In its usual display of arrogance, the Department thought that Common Core was a done deal but instead they found that both parents and teachers have rebelled against the program when they realized that it dis-empowered local educators and the decision-making and voting public.

This is affecting Catholic schools, too.

The idea of core courses is a good one.

The idea of core courses coming from liberal “eddikators” is not a good one.

As in “rotten to the core”.

Dislike of Common Core is one thing the right and many on the left have in common. We can defeat it!

My question is why did so many states just blindly buy into it?

Money. They got some money from the feds if they committed to using Common Core, IIRC.

A teacher from my old district posted on FB that his school administration had a meeting and told the teachers they were NOT to voice any criticism of Common Core. He said the teachers and students were physically ill over what they were being forced to do and that they weren’t allowed to do real teaching, but only follow the scripted lessons, questions, and pre-written teacher responses. No critical or outside the box thinking allowed. No freedom in teaching style. He sounded heartbroken...sick...and scared.

So, sell your birthright for a mess of pottage. Glad our states are looking out for us. /sarc

And thank God that my State of Texas had the wisdom not to sell its soul for the almighty dollar.

$$$$$$$

“Incentives” from the Obama/CommonCore administration - brought to your local schools by Bill Ayers, Obama’s shadow-secretary of education.

No Common Core in TX? I’m seriously thinking our children will grow up to be Texans. DH and I are California natives and truly love our home state, despite the damage that has been done to it. But I can’t recommend it to my children as a place to raise their own children when the time comes. Texas sounds better.
