"Common Core centralizes what kids are taught, how they are taught, and what they should learn, in the hands of a few educational bureaucrats at the national level — completely cutting out parents, teachers, and local school boards." NewAmerican March 12, 2013
Common Core claims to be state led….It is NOT. Common Core claims to be a rigorous program to better prepare our children for college…it is NOT. As more and more citizens are finding out the truth about Common Core they are starting to fight back. It is becoming apparent the move to nationalize education and create global citizens that started over 20 years ago (and is associated with UN Agenda 21) has been slowly infiltrating. The quest for global education found a true advocate in our current President, his administration and his associates. Please research and read both sides of the story. Just like Obamacare; Common Core was imposed on states using pressure, bribery and threat of tying acceptance of Common Core to Title 1 funding for the poor. In the state of Tennessee we received $300 million in Title 1 funding in 2012. Taking that money away would have a devastating affect on children from poor families. The Administration has proven that it will get what it wants anyway it can. "The End justifies the Means" Rules for Radicals.
