Now Bill Gates Demands That Common Core Tests Be POINTLESS For Two Years
DailyCaller ^ | June 11, 2014 | Eric Owens

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, an organization that has used up over $200 million in an effort to foist the Common Core Standards Initiative on America, has now asked schools to shelve any plans for using Common Core-associated standardized tests to assess teachers or students for the next two years. The request came in the form of a “Dear partners” letter from Vicki Phillips, the director of education at a Gates Foundation branch called College Ready.

Bill Gates is a totalitarian Marxist.

Yet, during Microsoft's Antitrust trial, so-called "Conservatives" supported him and his monopoly.

Even Rush Limbaugh decried Attorney David Boies for attacking poor, poor Bill Gates "for his success."

Boies even caught Microsoft submitting false evidence in the trial by taking a movie, then stopping the frame and restarting it.

F*ck all you "Conservatives." You had your heads up your rectums. And because of this, the computer industry was set back 50 years.

Haaahaha! Well put!

The aim of Common Core is to dumb down the next generation of customers/voters/debt-slaves.

I think Bill and Melinda Gates should be strapped to a chair in front of one of his computers and be repeatedly forced to try and do something on one of their OS platforms.

Witnessed this BS with my daughter, when the school discovered some magical elixir for teaching math in high school. Her class was the pilot for the program, which didn't work and was subsequently abandoned after two years.

The problem is, since they started this experiment with her class, she had to stay with the program throughout high school -- even though they knew it didn't work.

When they pilot out these programs and end up screwing up two or three years of a child's education, the damage is unbelievable.

Ah yes. Spending lots of taxpayer money on a program that is impossible to implement, only to shelve it for two years while buddies (PARCC and Pearson) continue to make billions off of it. Classic move. Gates is doing well in education so far.

Bill and Melinda Gates have no business telling local school districts what to do unless they are paying for those schools. The local taxpayers should run the schools in their counties. That was the system of schools that put men on the moon because it taught math, science and American values, not Marxist class warfare.

Gee, what’s happening in two years that one would want to hide the disaster that Common Core will be?

How about pulling your post, cleaning up the language and reposting it?
