Across the country, opposition to the “Common Core” national education standards that are being pushed by the Obama administration has been surging in recent weeks. From Florida and Georgia to Louisiana and Wisconsin, politicians are no longer able to ignore the growing public outrage — especially because it transcends traditional political divides and has united a powerful coalition of libertarians, conservatives, Republicans, Tea Party activists, progressives, liberals, parents, teachers, experts, and more. Various strategies to defeat the scheme are being tested, and some are already proving successful.

A hard-hitting video just released by FreedomProject Education (FPE) exposes some of the myriad dangers to liberty and education stemming from Common Core, a deeply controversial scheme to nationalize education standards being pushed by the Obama administration and a coalition of its establishment allies. While only a little over an hour long, the presentation, led by two education experts, offers a concise explanation of the threat and is sure to outrage parents, regardless of political affiliation. Elements of Common Core are already in place across America, and the picture is not pretty. 

 

 

VIDEO - Joy Pullmann, an education research fellow at the Heartland Institute, discusses Common Core data mining and testing consortiums with Duke Pesta. She describes how one set of standards provides opportunity for the federal government to collect information such as student behavior, attitude, persistence, and other nonacademic data in order to change how the students think and act.

According to administrators at Chicago Public Schools (CPS), children as young as five years old should be receiving sex education. This year, mandatory sexual and health education have been added to the kindergarten curriculum.

As outrage continues to grow surrounding the unprecedented “Common Core” nationalization of K-12 education under the Obama administration — particularly among Republicans, Tea Party groups, conservatives, and libertarians — a new foe of the controversial scheme is attacking the federally backed standardization plan from all angles, including the political left. Known as the Badass Teacher Association, or BATs for short, the nationwide coalition of educators is working hard to defeat the agenda — and they have been wildly successful thus far.
