So, what is Common Core?
Common Core is an abbreviated term used to refer to the “Common Core Initiative”.
It is a set of national (Federal) standards for English and Mathematics written and COPYRIGHTED by two left leaning lobbyist groups, “National Governors Association” (NGA) and the “Council of Chief State School Officers” (CCSSO).
It is backed and funded by yet another left leaning organization known as the “Bill and Malinda Gates Foundation”. These standards were adopted sight unseen by 46 states in exchange for “Race To The Top” money and/or waivers from “No Child Left Behind”.
It is a set of outcome based federal standards and tests for grades K-12. Common Core eliminates local control over K-12 curriculum in math and English, with the “Next Generation Science” being implemented as I write this.
It is a one-size-fits-all, top-down, federally controlled curriculum that will also apply to private schools and homeschoolers. Common Core, by design, will dumb down our children and aid in the indoctrination of our children, all starting as early as Kindergarten.
(The Science guidelines are forthcoming as the “Next Generation Science”, which is already being fed into the educational system)
There it is, the “Common Core Initiative” in a nutshell.
