Common Core: How The Left Will
Grow Its Power in America´s Schools

Breitbart Big Government, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/10/2014 7:22:49 AM

In 2012, terrorist and activist Chicago professor Bill Ayers told his followers that the left had “absolute access to the community, the school… the classroom,” and that is where it should do its “movement-building.” In October of 2009, when speculation had arisen that Ayers had been the real author of Barack Obama’s autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the activist was in Washington D.C. to present a keynote address at a conference sponsored by the Renaissance Group. Also speaking at the conference was Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and Nevin Brown of Achieve, Inc., who spoke about the “Common Core State

Of course they will advance. They are using all the tax dollars of Americans to do it and only way it stops is if we all quit our jobs and stop paying the government to destroy your kids.

It is called brainwashing. The Russians know all about it. This is just the beginning of the Socialization of America. Obama and Ayers planned this all along. Have the Republicans just thrown up there hands in defeat? They are allowing it to happen. The Dept. of education should be eliminated. Our schools have been failing ever since it was established.

It should tell us how far down America has fallen when a terrorist piece of filth like Ayers can have access to children to begin with.

Did you notice this?

However, it is not just children who attend public schools who are affected by Common Core. With the new nationalized standards having been accepted in some Catholic schools; with college entrance tests such as the ACT and SAT, and even the GED, being aligned with Common Core; and with the Obama administration’s decision to use Race To The Top funding to lure states into funding universal preschool, more students will be exposed to the social indoctrination than ever before.

A Hitler Youth Corps type of organization can´t be far behind - probably before 2016. If Hillary Clinton wins in 2016 it will be continued and will grow in power, since Hillary and Obama learned from the same master - Saul Alinsky.

Yes, it is on Jeb´s website; and Neil Bush heads Achieve testing equipment. Gov. Huckabee appeared to favor the "standards" but has since spoken against education by computers and now advocates a tablet, pencil, and information on how to use them.
Forty-six state governors took the bribe "stimulus" money; but at least half of them are trying to withdraw due to public outcry (and elections coming up. Put pressure on your governor and legislature Now!!

Most of the teachers I know are not happy with Common Core. They would find the concern with political brainwashing laughable. Their concern is that we are so obsessed with what is testable that we are eliminating all that cannot be tested from schools. Things like recess, physical education, homemaking, industrial arts, art, drama, and literature are disappearing. The wealthy will send their children to private schools where the curriculum will not change. Ten or so years down the road Common Core will be replaced but the damage it will have done will hang on for much longer.

Adolph Hitler said "give me control of public education and in forty years I will deliver a socialist state."

The commies (NEA) have been in charge for, what, forty years or so. This should surprise no one.

HEMPSTEAD - The Hempstead school board won´t renew the contract of a principal who instructed her students not to speak Spanish, in a rapidly-evolving district where more than half of the students, like many Texas schools, are now Hispanic. Hempstead Middle School Principal Amy Lacey was placed on paid administrative leave in December after reportedly announcing, via intercom, that students were not to speak Spanish on the school´s campus. The Hispanic population of the rural area, roughly 50 miles northwest of Houston, is growing quickly, and Latino advocates say that it´s important to allow Spanish in public schools. "When you

A loose bull ran through South Waco streets, yards and business properties Tuesday afternoon before two animal control cowboys wrangled it back into a trailer. The bull belonged to Jason Stewart, 36, and Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said the animal was being vaccinated at the Jager Veterinary Clinic, 2009 Circle Road, when he broke out of the corral and into the streets. Nolan Conner, 53, chased the bull in a red pickup truck after he saw it running down La Salle Avenue near the Waco traffic circle about 1 p.m., he said. Police received several calls to alert law

Pennsylvania Democrats were caught on surveillance tape reportedly accepting cash bribes in return for opposing Voter ID in the Pennsylvania Legislature.

Winston Churchill once said that Russia “is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” So is anything even remotely having to do with Bill and Hillary Clinton. And just as with the Russians, that is intentionally so. The Clintons go to great lengths to cover-up their cover-ups. And that’s why Judicial Watch goes to equally great lengths to expose the truth. It is fair to say that we have been battling Clinton corruption for all of our two decades. The recent partial release of their Clinton Presidential Library records provides a revealing case in point. On February 28,

NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine – Police armed with assault rifles descended on a Maine man´s home after members of a tree removal crew he´d told to clear off his property reported that he had a gun. Turns out the "gun" the tree crew had seen on Michael Smith of Norridgewock was just a life-sized tattoo of a handgun on his stomach. Smith, who works nights, was asleep when the tree crew contracted by a utility to trim branches near power lines, woke him up at about 10 a.m. Tuesday.

When I was in high school in Detroit, there was a great deal of emphasis on clothing. As I became increasingly interested in fitting in with the “in crowd,” fashion supplanted academic achievement in my hierarchy of importance. My grades plummeted and I became a person who was less pleasant and more self-absorbed. My mother was very disappointed, because she thought I had enough insight and intelligence to avoid the flypaper trap of acting like everyone else. Fortunately, after wasting a year pursuing acceptance, I realized that my dreams went far beyond silk shirts and sharkskin pants. I decided to

WASHINGTON — President Obama wants Americans to see how climate change will remake their own backyards — and to make it as easy as opening a web-based app. As part of its effort to make the public see global warming as a tangible, immediate and urgent problem, the White House on Wednesday will inaugurate a website aimed at turning scientific data about projected droughts and wildfires and the rise in sea levels into eye-catching digital presentations that can be mapped using an app. Mr. Obama’s counselor, John D.

In 2011, Vermont passed the nation´s first single-payer healthcare system, "Green Mountain Care." While the law was supposed to be fully enacted by 2017, it has become apparent that there´s no solid plan in place to actually pay for the healthcare of all Vermont residents. Democratic lawmakers, citing missed deadlines and past failures, have begun to call for Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin to "shelve" the plan. “The deadlines for proposing financing have been missed two years in a row now, so to me that’s very disappointing. It’s becoming clearer and clearer that there is no financing plan,” Condon told Vermont

It was a shocking disclosure just two years ago. In Seoul, South Korea, President Barack Obama’s voice was picked up on a hot mic as he told Russia’s Dmitri Medvedev: "Tell Vladimir [Putin] I can be more flexible after the election." It was an unprecedented confession by an American head of state. It was shocking – or should have been – because it showed the president of the United States conspiring, literally whispering assurances to a foreign leader that may not have been consistent with his own public pronouncements to us, the American voters, or to the world.

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more. Scandals like Benghazi, Operation Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting of conservative groups, NSA spying, CIA

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.
