Posted on 05/27/2014 8:16:23 PM PDT by chessplayer
A teacher told attendees at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics Monday night that he helped write the controversial Common Core education standards to end white privilege. Dr. David Pook, a professor at Granite State College and chair of the History department at The Derryfield School in Manchester, New Hampshire, argued in favor of Common Core. The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didnt earn. Ironically, the $28,535 per year Derryfield School that Dr. Pook teaches at considers the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) inferior and does not use them on the student body that is 91% white.

You can buy the soul of a college dept. chair for $28k per year...?
That is freaking pathetic.
Anyone with insight on how Common Core with help end “White Privilege” should offer up their insight.
Dumbing us all down is the obvious answer but I suspect something more sinister.
>> Teacher Admits He Helped Write Common Core To End White Privilege
Suggesting *quality* education results in White privilege?
Is the idiot’s point really that absurd?
One of my best friends is a teacher who’s been teaching for 15 years. She submitted her resignation recently because of Common Core and told me that many others are doing the same.
Making people too stupid to articulate arguments that help prevent the state from taking over their lives is what it is all about.
Statists just can’t stand freedom.

So we end up with a labor pool of teachers who are almost universally in lock-step with Common Core, and who will educate the next generation of our young People!
Great! Every time I think things couldn't be worse, I learn something even more disheartening.
I wish some of these teachers would stay and fight the good fight, from the inside, against this horrible Common Core abomination...
It seems to me that Barack Hussein Milhouse Obama is the benificiary of white privilege based on his lifestyle and coverage by the advocate media. Perhaps it’s that “negro dialect” he sports when needed.
Perhaps "Dr" Pook, *YOU* were given a lot of privelege you didn't earn, but it takes a lot of gall to insist that every 'white male' has likewise been such a beneficiary. Not all of us have had it easy-peasy, pal, and I resent the HE** out of you insisting that I have.
I look down at the 'turkey tracks' inside of both elbows, and am reminded how I got them (no, not the 'usual' way of shooting up heroin, not putting drugs *into* my body, but taking stuff out, like blood plasma twice weekly for years, just to have gas money to keep working two jobs, while going to school full-time). I can place my hand on a hard lump on my lower chest, to remind me of the day I gambled my very life, and lost it, in an industrial accident. It was by the very grace of G-d Almighty Himself, I am here to tell *that* tale, as I was sent back from the very dead.
These are more than the scars of life itself. They are a set of receipts, marked "DUES PAID", as husband, father, and citizen. If, and when comes the day, "Dr", that *you* can claim a set of receipts such as mine, then, and only then, will we have a basis for discussion of 'privelege'. Until then, pour yourself a nice, steaming hot cup of STHU!!
Another self loathing liberal projecting his psycho-pathology on the rest of us to make us fit in his world view.
Asking what can be done within the Pooblik Skrewl Collective is akin to walking into a morgue with a bottle of vitamin C and asking if the vitamins could help the stiffs in the morgue.
Some things can’t be fixed.
One such thing is the Pooblik Skrewl Collective.
But he , nor his school, use the CommonCore standards. Go figure !!
Another lib escapee from Taxachusettes , but can still see it over the next rise .
Sooner or later , New Hampshireites will reclaim their state motto:
" Live Free ,..or die !!
From what I understand, the problem is that teachers will be stripped of their licenses to teach if they don’t follow it to the “t”. Complete overreach.
The majority of home schooled and private schooled kids are white. The top students in America are Asian. The lowest performers are blacks and browns how does this elevate them?
The longer I live as a white male, the less I give a sh#t about what everyone else thinks of me. This is how Leftism backfires.
This “white privilege” c**p really chaps my hide. They’re getting more and more blatant with their hatred, jealousy and discrimination. What’s next?
Pookie ,... Pookie.., lend me your comb !!
I thought it was Kookie.,,,Kookie.., lend me your comb!
