Were Tennessee Poll Participants Asked About Common Core Data Mining? ^ | June 7, 2013 | Kyle Olson

Posted on 06/07/2013 3:14:14 PM PDT by Kaslin

The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE), a group headed by former U.S. Sen. Bill Frist, released a poll showing voters support for the controversial Common Core national standards in the state.

The poll found more than “4 in 10” strongly support the national standards after being read a description of them. The exact question posed to participants was not provided by SCORE, the polling firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, nor the newspaper that wrote a story,

What the poll proves is that the poll-tested language developed by the proponents of Common Core is working.

Big surprise.

Voters want their schools to do better and they want to get their tax money’s worth. Transferring power and authority to the national level – which is what Common Core implementation is doing – will not achieve that.

Curiously, the two-page pollster’s memo did not provide any results on voters’ opinions of data mining of their children. Either the results were unfavorable or Common Core proponents didn’t even want to know.

As EAGnews reported previously, the data compiled through Common Core will yield all sorts of non-education related information about students for bureaucrats: family income, religious affiliation, discipline problems, number of hours worked per weekend, medical laboratory procedure results, amount of non-school activity involvement, and computer screen name.

How would voters react if they knew an aspect of Common Core is to collect this sort of information on kindergarteners?

Likely not well.

The pro-Common Core forces have all the resources and power in the world to implement national standards with a national curriculum following closely behind.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the biggest single proponent of Common Core outside the federal government, is supporting SCORE. So the limited amount of data released is not surprising.

And those forces will likely win in places like Tennessee because they’re able to shape the message with poll-tested phrases.

So here's the future:

Unreachable and unaccountable people doing things to kids without parental knowledge and consent, and doing all the things mass-manipulating marketers and politicians like to do, with all the power of perverted social science behind them.

Why does this sound familiar?

Shower, anyone?

It IS all about access to the kids.

I’m beginning to wonder if that was their goal from the beginning of this 100+ years ago. Given what we know about Keynes and his co-conspirators.

And isn’t Frist the one with the connections who stands to make hundreds of millions off Obamacare when it’s implemented?

I sense a broader agenda here, related to the Jesuits' boast about "give me the education of the boy, and I'll answer for the beliefs of the man."

It's the whole package -- taking the whole future and the whole world, not just resources, away from families, from the People, and reserving all of it, even people's children, to the tiny, manipulative, self-privileging elite.

They’ve been indoctrinating public school kids for 60 years. Now they’re grooming them openly for other purposes.

It’s not a coincidence that most of Sandusky’s victims came from social services sources.

Yeah, Texas -- Texas -- pulled something like that back in 1996 or 1997, and it was hushed up, lest any of the mud splash on President-Designate Bush.

CPS (Child Protective Services) was handing kids out the back door for adoption by homosexual "couples" in violation of black-letter state law. A Christian woman employee of the agency who wasn't part of the conspiracy found out and went to the papers -- she was instantly fired w/o recourse, "for cause" (no unemployment, no nothing). Queers like to play rough with isolated people of conscience. The homojournalists buried it.

We really need to go through the whole damned thing with a big blowtorch and clean out the chicken coop.

Bill Frist is one odious loser and an embarrassment to Tennessee.

I Liked Frist as a Senator...but why does he feel he must turn left now that he’s retired. He was an EXCELLENT surgeon and no-doubt, could go back to that. He’ll make plenty of (well-earned) money doing that and doesn’t need a ANYONE to approve of it.

My wife has actively fought CORE

Frist is a member of the Frist family but not a major shareholder in Hospital Corp of America founded by his daddy and uncle and Jack Massey of KFC fame and now run by his brother Tommy Frist Jr

Bill is worth 7-25 million depending how his shares are doing

Tommy Jr is worth over 5 billion

I’m unaware how HCA benefits from Obamacare other than less uninsured

But even that looks less likely than Obama promised

30-40 million still uninsured after Obamacare is fully implemented per latest audit

Abolish dept of education

The Frists are weak on social issues.....compared to us

They are typical of Belle Meade GOP in Williamson

We are suspicious of the elite

Good on your wifey. If TN implements CORE in spite of parental objections you really only have one choice then. The really creepy part of it is the database collection on the kids. Only a pedophile stalker would want that much information on someone ELSES kids. Really.

I knew Frist was connected with that debacle somehow. He came out as a big supporter of obamacare. Only someone who stands to make big bucks does that. Certainly not someone with a brain or grain of ‘America’ left in them.

He supports state exchanges...have no clue why....a bit lib at heart

I never like how Bush Rove deep sixed Lott for First over Strom

Lott was far more productive at troop rallying for votes

Of course with his BIL going down I think Lott was to say the least vulnerable

Drop out or go down too
