So what is happening in our education system? We reviewed a discussion of this topic with a representative of the American Principals Project. And here are just some of the anti-constitutional and Orwellian goings on.
What is this Common Core about?
It is about the ideal of collective thought, your children will be “educated” not to their full free potential, but to become servants of the state. They will be tested over and over again. The results of those tests will filed away and determine what their life will be.
How’d this happen?
Common Core (aka Race to the Top) presented the curriculum standards to the states while the legislatures were in recess and the fed “required” an answer in 2 months. This did not allow the legislators to review, comment or even be consulted before the states had to answer. And of course the Fed dangled a lot of money promises too.
States are Constitutionally granted right to Educate their citizens are denied. Tenth Amendment is ignored.
The state must adopt ALL of the curriculum. Once adopted, no more than 15% in each area may be modified. Teachers, Principals, nor Parents will have any say in the curriculum. NONE.Details
