Skip to comments.Bill Gates, The Man Behind Common Core Shows How Stupid He Really is About Education
Posted on 03/16/2014 8:36:52 AM PDT by Texas Eagle
Bill Gates, the multi billionaire who does not have an earned college degree or teaching certificate, never taught a day in the classroom, never worked in an educational system or one room school house is comparing the education of children to electrical outlets.

If you have 50 different plug types, appliances wouldnt be available and would be very expensive. But once an electric outlet becomes standardized, many companies can design appliances and competition ensues, creating variety and better prices for consumers. If states use common academic standards, the quality of classroom materials and professional development will improve. Much of that material will be digital tools that are personalized to the student. To get this innovation out, common standards will be helpful.
A question from the back of the re-education camp? How did you get so smart without Common Core?
Gates did well in business but is doing terrible bs with government . this again proves that no one can make government work. socialism can never work .
privatize everything schools , roads,healthcare etc.. get government out our lives.
So the goal is to produce cookie-cutter students who will grow up to be cookie-cutter workers and ‘citizens’.
My question is this... What will happen to the students and people who refuse to be cookie-cutter products?
My guess is this, like a bakery/factory the non-conformist cookie-cutter products will be destroyed and put out with the trash. It’s just a matter of time I think.
Because his wealthy parents sent him to the best schools money could buy. Nothing common has ever been a part of his lifestyle from day 1.
The students in Maine need to know different things than the students in Southern California or Hawaii or Nome Alaska. Cookie cutter government is repressive controlling government. The parents locally know what is best for their offspring not Bill Gates or Barack HUSSEIN Obama or some pencil pushing bureaucrat in the dark bowels of a Washington office building.
Doughy bricks in the wall.
Bill Gates is a one trick pony. He is neither cute nor insightful. Got in on the ground floor of computers; rode that well.
Microsoft has been anything but a well run company since the early years.
Good point. If Cookie Cutter Core had been around when Bill Gates was a planned and wanted child, we’d still be sending men into space using slide rules.
Conservatives are in a dither about curriculum when the REAL problem is that every government school should be SHUT DOWN!
Every government owned and run K-12 school in this nation is godless. They are not and never have been religiously neutral because such a philosophic state of neutrality is impossible. Children in godless schools **will** learn to think and reason godlessly. They must just to cooperate in the godless classroom. How could it be otherwise?
Every government owned and run K-12 school in this nation is a single-payer and socialist-entitlement. Children in these schools risk learning to be comfortable with socialism. Hey! If the voting mob can give them tuition-free schooling, then why not use the voting mob to get **lots** of “free” stuff?
Nearly every teacher in this nation (even in private schools) was trained by godless Marxists in Marxist-run colleges and universities. While not all teachers are Marxists, their training must inevitably leak through into the classroom, curriculum, and school policies.
The place where parents have the most influence is in a private setting.
And....The brick and mortar ( prison-like) model should be abandoned.
Bill Gates knows how to cozy up to Big Government and Big Business. That’s why he’s having influence in this area.
thanks for posting
Standardization and quality are two completely different things. Choose a bad standard and you’ll only get substandard results across the nation. You would think he would know that.
The problem is that kids cannot be standardized. They are individuals who learn things differently.
Common core is very big on cooperative learning, and it’s driving one of my daughters crazy. She’s a junior, and she’s not learning anything in history this year.
She has speech and communication problems. She can’t handle being in a noisy classroom. She can’t hear well, and she can’t communicate well.
She’s exhausted after history.
She does great in normal classes with a teacher that lectures, reading, and doing normal homework.
My other “normal” daughter also hates the common core history class. She wishes she had taken AP History. She’s gifted and she hates the group work because she gets stuck with kids who are not as smart as her.
Gates essentially won the equivalent of the lottery with DOS and his business partner IBM’s inability to understand that it was the software that was important... After that it was just a matter of screwing over everybody he ever met. Intelligence had very little to do with his good fortune. The stupidity of others had more to do it.
