Rotten to the Common Core

Dear Friends and Citizens,

Whether or not you have children in school, the attached pieces expose the Common Core for what it is – a program to strip the great and formative stories, the quest for truth, and America’s founding ideas from schools, and to replace them with a patchwork of standards developed by far-off bureaucrats that insidiously promote leftist ideology and disparage conservative ideas.

If you think it even plausible that the Common Core is really about rigorous standards to create college-ready students, then you should drop what you are doing and immediately read and listen below. You are in for a surprise.

The media articles (only found at honest media outlets like The Blaze, Breitbart, and Daily Caller) and a mom’s speech linked below provide important facts and background information.

But if you really want to understand how destructive Common Core is and how it has fooled so many educators and parents (even conservative ones), take the time to listen to Hillsdale College Professor Terrance Moore, who explains Common Core in detail. Click “Watch this Video” in the big box at the bottom – it is worth every minute, and you will not find this clear and detailed explanation elsewhere.

Without children educated in classic stories of good and evil and in American exceptionalism, and taught to defend their correct point of view, there will be even fewer to stand against the ongoing loss of freedom.
