"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

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?

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.”?

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.
