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!
No, that’s the tuition at the high school he teaches at.
That’s a quite expensive day school ad these things go.
Black Racism—Its the Kawanza people all over again.
Common Core will use the same tactics as Obamma Care. Set up to look like free market solutions, but with the government “Progressives” gradually changing things until the government runs, and decides who is worthy of health care. In the schools it will be incremental change to teaching leftist government worship and religious hatred propaganda. These progressives are patient and have a long-term goal “evolution not revolution” just like Chavez did.
That $28k is the school's tuition per student!
I’m half Cherokee. I have the high cheekbones, not very dark skin but tans easily and green eyes. I’ve been mistaken for everything from a Mexican to a Scandinavian (when I bleached my hair).
I s/h/b a spook.
oh, I see. Dr. Polk decided it would be deviously entertaining for himself to set up teaching methods that would confuse even the brightest white student so as to crush their ambition and self-confidence and make them more amiable to confessing their guilt at being born white. Got it. Jail him for child abuse.
I just cannot fathom the stupidity of people coming out of school into the workplace.
And also, all the "Everybody is a winner" crapola will have the workplace in chaos.
Occam’s Razor, dumb down everyone to the level of brain damage.
My sister is a teacher and would quit now because of Common Core, so she told my mother ( we rarely speak since she voted for the Big0 twice). Two more years and then she is out like a shot. She says they are testing 2nd graders with tests designed for 5th and 6th graders.
Only goal I can see is to set up the kids for failure at a very early age,teaching them that they cannot succeed. All these teachers who voted for this guy should ask for forgiveness as soon as possible preferably on live tv.
It basically is a form of “reasoning” absent from context. a sort of drone making and destruction of history for corporate peace shallow culture. it will only end in disaster as we will be manufacturing irresponsible idiots.
“...does not use them on the student body...”
He wrote them for the hoi polloi and those down on lower rungs of the social ladder.
Correct ..thats what it was
I guess I took editorial license...
“You can buy the soul of a college dept. chair for $28k per year...?”
I read that number as the tuition for the school, not the prof’s salary.
What you’re seeing here is parallel to the antisemitism of the late 19th century. Like the Jews before them, the “white male” is being targeted, successfully, as not only the cause of social problems, but also as unfair recipients of wealth and status that have been “stolen” from others around them. Right now it seems like quirky bullshit from fringe thinkers and wacked pseudointellectuals. The idea is taking root that white males, and especially Christian white males, are undeserving of what they have.
If you talked with European Jews in 1870, most would concede some animosity and hatred, but they’d probably disbelieve that their neighbors, colleagues, coworkers, and families would someday round them up in mechanized genocide. (Russian Jews would believe it.)
We’re seeing the first baby steps of genocide. And although I don’t have any knowledge of this, I would bet there were self-hating Jews, just like this self-hating educator, who thought that all they had to do was express guilt and they’d obtain penance.
The good news for the haters, of course, is that it’s a lot easier identifying a person by skin color than it is by ethnicity. No need for yellow stars this time around.
God help us.
Tilting at windmills...
Really, if the administrators in the school or district are on board with common core, the teacher will get a bunch of bad reviews in their jacket, and then get the boot.
Better to look for a school which does not buy in and get a new job.
Unfortunately, that school will be harder to find as the tentacles of what is considered an accredited education affect even private and parochial schools.
I got screwed. Never recieved my white privilege package in the mail.. I complained to Rush Limbaugh but he said they are on back order and there was nothing he could do...
You can buy the soul of a college dept. chair for $28k per year...?
I read that the 28K was the tuition per year per student.
The sooner the better.
The only place you or anybody else will see “dues paid” is at the cross of Christ.
“Barack Hussein Milhouse Obama”
Nixon was not a bad guy, or a bad president.
Obama makes him look like a cross between George Washington and John Wayne.
I wonder if he is so self loathing, that he is in danger of offing himself?
Who knows? Pogroms maybe?
Anytime I had problems with my education, I went to the white guy club in town. Anytime I had problems with money, I went to the white guy club in town. When I was trying to get into college, I went to the white guy club in town. Anytime I had problems with women, I went to the white guy club in town. Anytime my car had engine trouble, I went to the white guy club in town. Anytime I could put the equivalence of fresh water lobster or prime rib on my table, I went to the white guy club in town. Anytime I had trouble finding work, I went to the white guy club in town. Anytime I had trouble at work, I went to the white guy club in town. Anytime I had trouble with my family or my own health, I went to the white guy club in town.
I didn’t earn one thing on my own, the white guy club contributed to my success in life in every aspect in my life. Thank you white guy club.
“This white privilege c**p really chaps my hide. Theyre getting more and more blatant with their hatred, jealousy and discrimination. Whats next?”
White privilege is the latest attempt to rationalize the difference in achievement between the races. Despite generations of trying to improve minority test scores without success, the left and race crazies must create a myth to explain it. The alternative is to admit there is a serious problem with black culture.
To many dedicated teachers, common core is tantamount to educational abuse. They can’t live with their consciences if they teach it, and can’t teach without it under the current administration.
Perhaps “mark of the beast” is a better analogy.
libtards are effeminate, hand wringing, teeth gnashing, guilt ridden pathetic panty wastes with sweaty palms and timid outlooks.... but they sure like to tell others what to do... they dont contribute much to society but they like to steal others earned wealth and give it to parasites... obviously parasites outnumber workers so once they buy power its all over but the fema camps...
always nice to know the origins of something and what the motivation was for the creation.
You summed up perfectly “The new color line” by Paul Craig Roberts; he made the comment that the Jews were murdered with words long before they were murdered in fact — and he made ominous parallels with what is being said in certain quarters about white males.
Pook is a putz.
