'Children Belong to All of Us,' Common Core Promoter Says; Opponents Are 'Tiny Minority'
The Christian Post ^ | 2/3/14 | Napp Nazworth

Posted on 02/03/2014 7:49:36 PM PST by marshmallow

"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?

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.

“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

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.

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.

The Fortune 500 execs are selling America out from under us with progressivism/political correctness.

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.

I raised my five without the government, the rest belong to someone else. If you didn't birth them, they don't belong to you to feed and house..The ones making them are the ones they belong to...the rest is liberal drivel.

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.

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.

Wonder how many never made into the world?

We have some rough figures, for THIS country: 55,000,000 or so have died before birth.


I'd like to thank the United States Government for protecting me and my kind.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You see, 40 years ago, my odds of making it out of the egg, alive, were very poor; about 80% of us died. 
 (http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=rachel-carson-silent-spring-1972-ddt-ban-birds-thrive)
 
 
But a lady discovered our plight and wrote a book that addressed our problem,
and, in 1972, a law was ammended protecting us even further. (http://www.fws.gov/midwest/eagle/protect/laws.html)
 
 
 
 
 
 
What I find strange is that the same government passed a law the very next year that allowed for killing
of unborn, and apparently unwanted, humans.  Little ones still nestled safely in their Mother's womb.
Around 25% of them are dying before birth - on average nearly 3,300 - every day of the year.
 
 
I hear that by now, somewhere around 55 MILLION of them have perished.
Wouldn't that kind of mess up the humans plans for growth, and welfare, and
retirement?
 
 
 
 
 
Strange birds; these Homo Sapiens.  Perhaps they'll come to their senses
before they are ALL dead!

You must have limited searching skills.  WIKI says...             http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Gates
 
After being named one of Good Housekeeping's "50 Most Eligible Bachelors" in 1985,[70] Gates married Melinda French on January 1, 1994. They have three children: daughters Jennifer Katharine (b. 1996) and Phoebe Adele (b. 2002), and son Rory John (b. 1999). The family resides in the Gates's home, an earth-sheltered house in the side of a hill overlooking Lake Washington in Medina. According to King County public records, as of 2006 the total assessed value of the property (land and house) is $125 million, and the annual property tax is $991,000.
