Common core org pollutes the net with the selling points of this newly implemented surveillance type system on our children. In fact if you try to find opposing points on this new system, you have to dig deep because not only do they fill all the top spots, some of the supporting non profit firms backed by the corporations fill the next level of top spots in the search engines. By the time you find some truth, the poison has already taken affect with phrases like this one “Common Core will help children learn to compete in global markets better.” Oh is that so, some freakin morons develop a surveillance system on children and suddenly they can compete in global markets better? We have here parents fighting for the future of our children to protect them from the demons. it is a sad day when we all lose our children, it is a sad day when protests no longer work. Is everybody being conditioned, getting worn down.
The people have spoke but it just didn’t matter, it was one of those things where thousands of people show up at the meetings, speak out and get arrested or their voices were just not heard, kind of like goldfish trying to be seen in an ocean full of whales and sharks. It didn’t need a vote and even if it did, the shameful republicans that are supposed to fight against this are the ones who initiated and helped to implement it. In Florida a rapidly changing red state with a red governor had thousands of people on the sides of the roads in protest against this. Those people were teachers who actually researched this, those people were parents and most of all those people were people that cared about the future. It didn’t matter, they were doomed the moment they paid to have a sign made or the moment they stepped into the street in legal protest. Unfortunately like amnesty in our opinion, Common core is heavily backed by the monster corporations that may or will have the ability to buy the data on children.
You really have to ask yourself a few questions here. To start with, why did republicans implement Common Core? Republicans and democrats alike work heavily with special interest groups and this is certainly one of them which immediately made it bi partisan. Only 5 states said no to common core and we salute them. Why did they say no? Even if they are closet progressives or special interest controlled, they listened to the masses of people against it. They knew it would cause turmoil in their highly conservative states, we were very surprised that Nashville TN did not vote against it being the family oriented place it is supposed to be, it was disappointing to us as was Florida but Florida is highly divided and rapidly turning blue. You expect falling cities ran by massive progressives to implement this such as NY or Vermont among many others, while the cities you would think would say no and care about families actually put it in. Republican states back this because it is a corporate backed process.
Here are the 5 states that said no to Common Core, you can do your own research as to why they said no
- Texas- Texas never left much doubt about where it stands. In 2010, Gov. Rick Perry wrote the White House and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to say that Texas leads the way in education reform and would not waste tax dollars on “the adoption of unproven, cost-prohibitive national standards and tests.”Perry estimated adoption and implementation of the Common Core at $3 billion in textbooks, training and testing materials for Texas. He also dropped references to “state sovereignty” and “unwanted federal intrusion…
- Virginia- Who would have thought!In 2010, the Virginia state board plainly objected: “The Board of Education is committed to the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) program and opposed to adoption of the newly developed Common Core State Standards as a prerequisite for participation in federal competitive grant and entitlement programs.” But the state’s own side-by-side evaluation of English standards finds the state mostly aligns with the Common Core anyway: “While the organization and learning progressions are not necessarily identical, the overall content from both is generally aligned.”Yet Virginia drew a line at the books suggested for demonstrating the standards, which a member of the Alabama state board has called a de facto national reading list. “The (Common Core standards) do not prescribe a reading list per se, but they offer reading text exemplars to illustrate text complexity for each grade level. Virginia does not endorse specific titles or authors … rather, curriculum decisions are made locally in Virginia,” reads the report by the Virginia Department of Education in 2010. Virginia offered a similar objection on math, saying Common Core dictates methodology, instead of just identifying the standards.
- Minnesota- Minnesota complicates national lists. The state adopted the Common Core, but only halfway. Minnesota in 2010 agreed to the standards for English. But Minnesota educators and politicians liked their own math standards better.Minnesota has helped lead the way on testing, this year using a standardized test aligned with the English standards. The resulting low marks, linked to more challenging standards, didn’t look great. “Our scores didn’t go down. It’s a new, more difficult test,” Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius was quoted assuring the public in the Minneapolis Star Tribune this summer. “Our kids didn’t get dumber in one year.”
- Nebraska-Nebraska hasn’t adopted Common Core, but state officials have said the schools cover most of the same material, just at different times. Education officials have questioned the national standards. Deb Romanek, director of math for the state education department in Nebraska, told the Lincoln Journal Star last month that there was no proof that Common Core was the best way to teach math. “The jury’s still out,” she said. Jim Scheer, former vice president of the state school board, said states were adopting standards before they had been compiled. “They literally weren’t even written yet,” Scheer recalled in The Omaha World-Herald in August. There also appears to be some legal debate, as Nebraska law requires districts to adopt state standards.
When you see states declining using verbage like federal intrusion or not even close to the current standards dumbing down students, you immediately know that this is not some rogue conservative putting things in peoples heads. There is absolutely a truth and debate on this issue which unfortunately was not strong enough for the large majority of states who obviously do not care for their people or think the people are stupid enough to not know anyways.
There are massive transfers of people going from one state to another now and if these states do not care enough to lose hundreds of thousands of people to places like Texas, so be it. Eventually they will, in many cases sooner than later. Just look at the Texas stats of people moving in by the masses, leaving these ridiculous progressive states that will eventually crush our society in the name of consumerism and surveillance.
