Remove Common Core
If the road to Hell is paved with good intentions then certainly the road to Common Core is paved with money for those who support it. It must be stated openly and repeatedly that Common Core is about private companies making money and government indoctrinating children to a certain lifestyle and behavior. None of which is in the child’s best interest. Common Core supports the notion that children belong to the state and not to their parents. It succeeds by dumping down the education and the child, not by improving education or standards.
Common Core is a three part system: curriculum, standards, and testing. All three are controlled by private companies and not by the state. David Coleman is the one who developed the curriculum for Common Core then his group set the standards and now he heads the testing and SAT program. Indiana has retreated from Common Core, so have some many were asked to sign on to the standards. To understand more fully read Attachment A and B.
Common Core is a national takeover of curriculum, standards, and testing; but not only by the government but by private companies who make a profit on success of their program and not the education of our children.
ELEVEN REASONS WHY COMMON CORE IS WRONG AND WILL DESTROY EDUCATION
1) Common Core curriculum, standards, testing, was written and controlled by the private companies that will make money from the system.
2) Common Core kills innovation. Private firms control what is in all text books and how the classroom will be run. Students, teachers, parents, and school boards have no say.
3) Standards are based on political standards not education excellence. Children become indoctrinated not educated.
4) States were bribed to accept Common Core. It’s about money and not education.
5) The Standards for Common Core were written in secret without public review or input and with no classroom teachers involved in the process. Many university professors have called the math standards a disgrace. The English standards will increase illiteracy.
6) Common Core abandons classics and replaces with reading presidential executive orders and training manuals from corporations and government.
7) Under Common Core kids are no longer the responsibility of their parents they belong to the community through the school system. Parental rights are destroyed.
8) History about America and our origins will be removed from education. Lessons about why government knows best replaces actual history.
9) Common Core undermines family values, religious beliefs, and personal freedoms.
10) It removes parents and local communities from any involvement in education.
11) The Federal Government will collect over 400 data points on your child so they can track everything about the children and their family and stays in their file for life. Corporations and all government agencies will have access to this information.
