It began as a quiet plot by at least one North Dakota education official to personally attack and defame an expert on Common Core, Dr. Duke Pesta, who was set to give public speeches and briefings to lawmakers exposing the dangers of the Obama administration-pushed nationalization of schooling. The plan, however, backfired — big time.
Blasting the Obama administration-pushed national education standards as “deeply flawed,” the powerful Chicago Teachers Union this week became the latest heavyweight organization to join the bipartisan war on Common Core. In its resolution against the controversial nationalization of K-12 schooling, adopted on May 7, the union noted that children and education were being harmed by the “overreaching” federal meddling. As such, the CTU vowed to lobby state officials until the use of Common Core is entirely “eliminated” across the state of Illinois. Labor leaders say other unions may be on the verge of doing the same.
As the tsunami of opposition continues to grow, proponents of the Obama administration-pushed Common Core nationalization of education are getting nervous that their controversial scheme is on the verge of coming undone. At least that is the message of the Southern Poverty Law Center, a self-styled “civil-rights” outfit with links to various government agencies, in a report released this week attacking critics of the K-12 schooling agenda. Already, though, the ultra-left group is being mercilessly ridiculed for its factually challenged rants, lies, name-calling, and deception.
A Gilford, New Hampshire, man was arrested at a school board meeting Monday night after vigorously objecting to a sexually graphic novel his 14-year-old daughter and her 9th grade classmates were assigned to read without parental notification.
Despite billions of dollars spent to prop up the Obama administration-pushed national education standards known as Common Core with deceptive propaganda, the scheme is quickly becoming a punchline and a toxic liability for politicians. Critics are scoring major victories from sea to shining sea. Indeed, virtually every state government that accepted bribes from Washington, D.C., to impose the controversial plot is now battling a fast-growing grassroots army of parents and teachers that transcends traditional partisan divides and may ultimately crush the education establishment.
Facing a growing avalanche of grassroots opposition from teachers, parents, and voters across the political spectrum, pro-Common Core forces — Big Business, Big Media, the Obama administration, and more — are striking back at their critics, oftentimes with outright deception and utterly ridiculous claims. However, under even a modicum of scrutiny, the absurd allegations and unsubstantiated statements made by proponents of the Obama administration-funded nationalization of education standards promptly fall apart. It appears, then, that while Common Core supporters have the big bucks — much of it from U.S. taxpayers, most of the rest from Big Business and the Gates Foundation — advocates for local control and proper education have the truth on their side.
Zero-tolerance school policies are resulting in the criminalization of innocent or childish behavior, with lifelong consequences.
The Mark Twain School in Sacramento, California has suspended the mother of a 12-year old student from the school grounds following a disagreement with the school over the impending Common Core Standards. The mother, Katherine Duran, was served the 14-day suspension at her home by Sacramento police.
Several Common Core-approved textbooks have rewritten the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
As the Obama administration, Bill Gates, the United Nations, and other forces seek to finalize the decades-old effort to nationalize — and even globalize — education by bribing and bludgeoning state governments to impose Common Core, one of the key agendas behind the deeply controversial standards has been largely overlooked. In essence, official UN documents and statements by top administration officials reveal a plan to transform American children, and students around the globe, into what globalists refer to as “global citizens” ready for the coming “green” and “sustainable” world order.
