Skip to comments.'Children Belong to All of Us,' Common Core Promoter Says; Opponents Are 'Tiny Minority'

"The children belong to all of us," Paul Reville, an education professor at Harvard and former Massachusetts secretary of Education, said Friday in explaining why states should adopt the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
"What we're doing at the national level ... is what a lot of our states thought made sense individually. Why should some towns in cities or states have no standards or low standards and others have extremely high standards when the children belong to all of us and would move. And the same logic applies to the nation," he said, making the case for national standards.
His comment regarding children is similar to a controversial statement by MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry in April. In an ad for MSNBC, she said, "We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities."
Reville was a panelist for an event hosted by the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, and the National Center on Time & Learning in Washington, D.C., introducing a new CAP report, "Redesigning and Expand

A Communist/Fascist-Totalitarian central plank.
If Bill Gates feels so strongly about this why didn’t he and his wife have children or at least adopt them?
We've seen this movie.
And Mike Huckabee — who according to one poll is a 2016 “frontrunner” — supports these Progressive maniacs. Lovely.
As the Left has success dominating cultural institutions and holds office, they will become more emboldened. Remember Hilary Clinton’s quip that it takes a village to raise a child. That implies that the village will establish values, procedures and goals for children. Woe be it to the parent that objects. Rugged individualism and individual liberty is not consistent with collectivist practice.
Wonder how many never made into the world?
If they belong to all of us, why are we aborting them so fast?
“The children belong to all of us,”
The Khmer Rouge had similar thoughts...
“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”
- Adolph Hitler
Thank you I never hear about them and every time I read a bio it was never mention.
Wrong. The children belong to God, who entrusts them to their parents.
Yup. That’s exactly why people have children. To sacrifice them to the government gods. These people are psychos.
Is this “All your children are belong to us.”?
To a socialist, everything belings to everybody. There is no private property.
Seventy Years of Evil, Michael Johns, Policy Review, Fall 1987, p. 10
January 13, 1918 - A decree denies churches all property and legal rights, in effect outlawing their existence. Soon after, religious marriage is abolished and the family is declared obsolete. Family is criticized for preventing women from doing work useful to the state and declared irrelevant, since state will gradually take over childrearing. Zlata Lilina, director of public education in Petrograd, calls for “nationalization” of all children and their removal from the oppressive influences of their families, because children “like wax, are highly impressionable” and “good, true Communists” can be made our of them.
Like global warming, the case is settled. Just hand over your bank account and your children.
Hmmmm ,the kids don’t have any say about who they belong to?
such a rigid gaggle of joyless dopes one RARELY SEES!
the woman in the front row looks likes shes posing for a photo back when the subject couldnt move an iota for fear of being utterly out of focus.....circa 1800 something
they want subservient child jihadists...willing do DIE for THE WORLD
like the recently reported...Child soldier: purported 4-year-old Jihadist in Syria
And they ought to be encouraged to drop them all off on Paul Reville's doorstep for some TLC.
There is a milestone waiting for that reptile
I think you meant ‘millstone’, dear One, but yeah reptile seems most appropriate.
bill gates....and BONO....never looked stranger..
they appear to be The Undead!
Yes, children are not property, but souls in trust.
Our children are our children; not theirs.
all children belong to all of us? that’s great news!
so i’ll be showing up for classes on monday and expect my degree within short order. free of charge, of course... right?
My kids only belong to me and the Mrs. Let them try all they want, my kids already know better.
It is time to hold Paul Reville accountable for his statements and actions by finding him to be unfit to hold any office or employment in the public trust.
1. They support CORE.
2. They support amnesty for illegal aliens in exchange for cheap labor.
3. They support the normalization of homosexuality, e.g., look what they did to the Boy Scouts of America (and already did to the Girl Scouts).
If I didn't know any better I would think that these execs are in cahoots to build a NWO at the expense of the U.S. and Western civilization what with the Bilderbergers, TLC, Bohemian Grove, CFR, Club of Rome, UN, Rhodes Trust, and Skull & Bones.
That’s probably the reason childless elites hold this belief. You’re not really being sold the idea that children “belong to everybody”, you’re actually being sold the idea that individual familial lineages and history are meaningless and the main fealty one should have is to the state.
This would facilitate a whole host of concepts that make statists get “tingly feelings” up their legs, in particular that which would make acceptable the idea that ones lifetime produced wealth should revert to the state at death, or the trust, or corporation you swore fealty to, rather than blood descendants.
Friedrich Engels, The Principles of Communism, 1847:
[Q:] What will be the influence of communist society on the family?
[A:] It will transform the relations between the sexes into a purely private matter which concerns only the persons involved and into which society has no occassion to intervene. It can do this since it does away with private property and educates children on a communal basis, and in this way removes the two bases of traditional marriage — the dependence rooted in private property, of the women on the man, and of the children on the parents.
Attention Speaker Boehner: Impeach Obama in 2014, PERIOD!
Boehner is powerless. He can’t even keep his daughter from marrying a Rastafarian Cat-in-the-Hat doper and he’s going to save the country from Zero ? He, and the entire GOP leadership (establishment types all), need to be removed from power.
Huck won’t go far.
Now Granny; you KNOW that we have to support all those COWBIRDS that are hatched in our nests!
(Ellie Mae wants to know when winter's going to be over...)
I seem to remember a fellow, back in the 1830's that had a BUNCH of wives - but hardly ANY children.
I wonder why HE didn't adopt.
We have some rough figures, for THIS country: 55,000,000 or so have died before birth.
Did you use the INTERNET to find this out?
It might be you; but not THIS time!
I've heard of a powerful group that is buying up ranchland in Florida!
Wow...they look like an army of brain-dead zombies.
I recognize the “faces” of quite a few. But there are no souls that I recognize.
