Skip to comments.Common Core Conspiracy Unraveling? (UPDATE)

Recent headline on an education site sums up the story: The majority of public supports Common Core, but opposition is growing.
Another ed site announced, with a map: Breaking News: 20 States' Pending Legislation...to Reject or Limit Common Core."
Common Core Curriculum, steamrollered across the country several years ago and adopted by almost 45 states, may be faltering. Why do so many people consider this wonderful news? Here are 8 good reasons:
1) Common Core represents a federal takeover of education. This is a dream that progressives and liberals have pursued for a century. States and communities have traditionally been smart enough to resist this centralization of power. Education should remain a local concern. That is the only way the country will have diversity and choice.
2) Common Core was promoted in an unscrupulous way. The Obama Administration basically offered bribes to the individual states if they would cave. These bribes were called Race to the Top grants. In tight economic times, the states were seduced, some of them with irresponsible speed.
3) Common Core was sold aggressively to the public but many of the ideas were not field-tested nor proven to work. Little was explained in depth. Parents do not understand the degree to which a federally-mandated, one-size-fits-all approach would descend upon the country. It wont be pretty.
4) Common Core has been developed by the same experts who have made a mediocre mess of public schools for more than 75 years. There is no reason to believe these incompetent people can operate at a higher level...

Let’s hope it just goes away.
The majority are mostly dumbed down proles who went to public screwels themselves, and have NO idea what's in Common Core.
At least we booted that crap out of Texas.
This is good news...however we have a lot of PhonyCons who support Big Government federal takeover of education....and both Bushes had their own plans...like Goals 2000 and No Child Left Behind
Number 87 on the worst 100 schools in the US:
Barack Obama Global Preparation Academy (this does not surprise me)
Number 58 on the list: Barack Obama Charter also in Los Angeles

Somebody sent me a note which gives interesting background on Common Core:
“...Common Core is the super organized version of values clarification indoctrination dressed up in a three piece suit. It also has the support of the NEA and the CDC.
“I was discussing this subject with a retired teacher. She told me that her last job she was given before retiring was in explaining Common Core to the teachers at her school. She said that every single teacher in the room was upset at having to teach Common Core. She had a feeling it was bad, but she didnt know why. She was not in a position to change it. So, many teachers are clueless and the thing is it was specifically designed so that no one would know while it was being taught. People are transformed by what they learn, but have no idea that a transformation has taken place. Kids dont know, parents dont know, teachers dont know, and society as a whole has absolutely no idea.
“The purpose of Common Core is to finish the task originally framed by John Dewey. Bill Ayers knows about it and he crows about its success. All the school shooters are the proof that such a design is in place. That look in their eyes says it all - a puzzled, confused blank stare. And the media goes into overdrive blaming parents, guns, computer games, and drugs without ever touching on the heart of the matter and that is the psychopathic education of our youth.”
Common Core is social engineering with a young and captive audience.
It is just that simple.
