Despite the lefts efforts to convince us that Obamas relationship with William Ayers was irrelevant... the facts that prove otherwise are plenty and can no longer be ignored.
To understand the agenda (and lies) at the core of our new national standards, you have to go back to why many on the right were concerned about Obamas relationship with Bill Ayers to begin with their work on education reform.
The Coalition of Essential Schools (CES), a progressive education reform model rooted in the social justice pedagogy of John Dewey and Paulo Freire, was expanded by President Obama and communist Bill Ayers through their work with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge in the 1990's, and later, through the Chicago Public Education Fund.
CES Schools was founded in 1984 by Theodore Sizer who was, at the time, head of Brown Universitys education department.
Sizers partner in the start of CES schools was Deborah Meier . Meier still works closely with Bill Ayers for social reform through education, and is a founding leader of Democratic Socialists of America, a Marxist organization that strives to end capitalism and bring about a humane international social order.
In 1993, Brown University President Vartan Gregorian (whom President Obama appointed as a White House Fellow in 2009) collaborated with Ted Sizer on the launching of the Annenberg Institute for School Reform.
Gregorian was instrumental in selecting the group led by Bill Ayers and chaired by Obama to receive a grant for the start of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge in 1995.
Ayers organization, Small Schools Workshop, also received Annenberg dollars to aid in opening new CES schools and to transform existing schools into CES member schools.
Ayers co-founded the Small Schools Workshop with fellow bomb-making domestic terrorist and Marxist-Communist, Mike Klonsky, who now serves as the organizations national director.

Someone from CoES knows Ayres very well.
Said CoES person is a snake of the tallest order.
He’s moved on to DEMOS, I believe, but has left quite a trail.
These organizations are so in-bred:
Too late to worry about...The horse is long since out of the barn...
