(I have tried searching for this topic on the forums, trying to find if there was a thread explaining what it is, who came up with this idea/who funds it and what for and couldn't find such a thread so decided to make it myself. If this is in the wrong forum please move it.)

Perhaps many of you have not heard about it, so let's start by finding out what is the Common Core Standards.


Mission Statement
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

www.corestandards.org...

So the Common Core Standards are being used by the Federal Government, and the states to set standards to what children should be learning.

According to that same website there are already 45 states that have adopted the Common Core Standards.

BTW, do notice how on the top of this page I am linking to states "In the States", to me this points out that this indoctrination is not happening just in the United States, since it is mentioning how the Common Core Standards are to be used in the States.


Forty-five states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity have adopted the Common Core State Standards.

www.corestandards.org...

So far it doesn't sound bad right?

But who is really behind this, and why?


...
President Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan often say that the Common Core standards were developed by the states and voluntarily adopted by them. This is not true. They were developed by an organization called Achieve and the National Governors Association, both of which were generously funded by the Gates Foundation. There was minimal public engagement in the development of the Common Core.

Their creation was neither grassroots nor did it emanate from the states. ​In fact, it was well understood by states that they would not be eligible for Race to the Top funding ($4.35 billion) unless they adopted the Common Core standards. Federal law prohibits the U.S. Department of Education from prescribing any curriculum, but in this case the Department figured out a clever way to evade the letter of the law. Forty-six states and the District of Columbia signed on, not because the Common Core standards were better than their own, but because they wanted a share of the federal cash. In some cases, the Common Core standards really were better than the state standards, but in Massachusetts, for example, the state standards were superior and well tested but were ditched anyway and replaced with the Common Core.
...

www.washingtonpost.com...

So, it is starting to sound fishy no?

In the above article they mention an organization called "Achieve", they actually even have a website and it states who are the directors and contributors of this organization.

www.achieve.org...

Let's see who is part of the board of directors of Achieve.


Our Board of Directors

At the 1996 National Education Summit a bipartisan group of governors and corporate leaders decided to create and lead an organization dedicated to supporting standards-based education reform efforts across the states. To do so, they formed Achieve as an independent, bi-partisan, non-profit education reform organization.

To this day, Achieve remains the only education reform organization led by a Board of Directors of governors and business leaders. This unique perspective has enabled Achieve to set a bold and visionary agenda over the past 15 years, leading Education Week in 2006 to rank Achieve as one of the most influential education policy organizations in the nation.

So businesses as well as the Federal government are part of the people behind this organization to brainwash, and indoctrinate, I mean excuse me, to TEACH our children in America.

Who are the contributors of this organization? From the Achieve website itself we find the following.

I know some of you are going to say that just because a lot of businesses and the Federal government are behind this re-education of America's youth, it doesn't mean it is bad news right?

Let's see what we actually find in the literature, in one of the books that teachers will be using to indoctrinate and brainwash, I mean to teach the children of America, your children and grand-children.

BTW, in case some of you don't know this, groups and people like the Gates have been, and still are, part of agendas to for example forcefully use vaccines which have been found to induce sterilization in third world countries for their population control agenda. I made a thread about this some time ago. Now it seems that they, and some others, want to use an entirely "nationalized educational system" to indoctrinate and brainwash the children of America to grow up believing and cheering for many, if not all these same agendas these people are part of.

Below is a link to the thread I made regarding the Gates Foundation and their population control agenda.


Susanne Posel
Occupy Corporatism
July 5, 2012

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) are focusing on population control through their Global Health Development Programs. By using citizens in under-developed nations, like Africa and India, was Guinea pigs for their research and development for “new interventions such as vaccines, drugs and diagnostics”, these globalists hope to ensure their family planning schemes are effective.

Melinda Gates has made family planning and the population control agenda her personal mission . She justifies her cause by claiming that 100,000 women die in child birth from unintended pregnancies. Although this statistic has no scientific basis, since it sounds good and mainstream media do not check facts, it has helped the BMGF team up with the British government to raise more than $4 billion to fun depopulation programs under the guise of bringing contraceptives to under-developed nations.
...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

So, let me get back to the subject at hand, and let's see what exactly what can be found in one of the books to be used by teachers to brainwash and indoctrinate, excuse me, to teach America's children.

Watch it, and decide for yourselves if this is what you want your children, and grandchildren to learn.


www.youtube.com...#!

Remember that specifically America's children will be indoctrinated and brainwashed to believe the agendas these business owners and rich elites, as well as the Federal government, want our children and grandchildren to believe in, and grow up being advocates of their agendas.

BTW, does anyone remember also the executive order/bill that Obama and Democrats signed for in H.R. 1388 in which they gave power over the education of our children to some group they call "the Corporation"?

According to the bill this "corporation" would also decide which children will receive grants for more education, and in what jobs our children will be serving the "state", for the good of all of course.

www.govtrack.us...

Is this "corporation" the group Achieve?

Anyway, at about minute 7:00 in the video link I gave in my op, the man explaining what can be found in these books for teachers to use in their indoctrination program, he states that in the books that are for third, fourth, fifth, and sixth graders, is that these elites want the teachers to write down and measure the attitudes, the beliefs and dispositions" of the children to "track their educational goals"...

So, to those who would claim otherwise, does this still not sounds nefarious at all to you?...

Speaking as a first grade teacher from NC.

This is the first year we've used the Common Core curriculum. I actually prefer it to our previous curriculum. Why? It's more rigorous, more defined, and less broad. By this I simply mean that the curriculum targets fewer teaching objectives, but you go into those objectives more deeply. So instead of learning a little bit about everything, you focus and learn more about fewer things.

The Race to the Top funding is the reason NC switched to the CC.

If there's a conspiracy behind the Gates Foundation, I can't speak to it. It's beyond my knowledge, so trust your research there.

My biggest concern is with the video. It's misleading. The CC does not dictate what resources or texts a teacher should use when teaching. That is left to the discretion of the teacher. In my county we don't even use Basal readers (a Basal reader is your typical reading book, like what was shown). Instead, we use literature and nonfiction text.

The choice of which schoolbooks to purchase is made at a county level (again, I'm speaking to NC). When we adopt a new textbook there are generally 5-6 companies that compete for that purchase. Teachers and parents have the opportunity to look over the books and cast their vote.

I taught for two years in a school that did use the basal readers...and I rarely followed the basal's suggested plans. Not because they were bad, just because I wanted to present the info a different way.

Having said all that....that basal reader is deplorable and where the true concerns should be focused. I can assure you, if I found something like that in a text book in my district, I would not keep it secret. However, I don't think you can connect a link from the basal to the CC, considering that each district can choose their own materials.

S&F for an interesting read.

By using the sentence "brain wash and indoctrinate" over, and over again I believe you brain washed me.

I'm in this does sound fishy, but at least their teaching my kids how to see, and understand these tricks. This might come back, and bite 'em in the butt.

I'm ANGRY that this is the reason my kids seem to be able to MANIPULATE me so easily!

Did I do that right?

To think I cheered when Texas nixed c-scope, only to have it replaced by corporatist indoctrination. I do my best to teach my nieces and nephew that school is terrible. And that they should not trust their teachers.

It is news like this that reinforces my personal stance against procreation. It is a selfish act to bring children to this nightmare. They are little more than leverage to keep one a compliant servant.

S&F from me, I am really pleased to see this, as its a rabbit hole,
and I think regardless of the supposed benefits of the "improved" curriculum,
and "guidelines" the dangers far outweigh any good!

I have some info to bring to the thread, there is a lot to this
that is not known, and it deseves some real attention!

NC Common Core Standards

Just in case anyone would like to take a look at the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and the Common Core. You will notice it does not require specific textbooks to be used.

I understand what you are saying, but I must point out to you, what the man who explains what is in the books also points out is that in the books starting for third, fourth, fifth and sixth graders these elites want teachers to start writing down the changes in the belief system of the children, their disposition, and what they believe now. He doesn't just say it, in the video you can read it directly from the books and you can see he is not lying.

it is obvious by what can be seen at the end of that video that the goal of this program is to indoctrinate the children of America.

Also, as another member pointed out as a response here, it is a good way to USE children to impose the agendas the elites want you to cheer for.

Another fact I want to point out. These people, the directors, and contributors, are very intelligent, and coy people. They use deception, and of course they are not going to put their agendas in the books for teachers to teach the children, they are smarter than that. Instead what they do is to instill in the children the need to "indentify social problems and their solutions".

Remember, children are like sponges, so instead of putting these agendas in these books, what they do is put their agendas on tv, on ads on the streets, on newspapers and magazines, so the children see these "social problems" such as for example "anthropogenic Global Warming", or population growth, and believe these are problems they can solve, because they have been led to believe so, and these are the agendas that the elites believe in, and in fact want to use any and every tactic, even illegal, and inhumane ways to deal with these "social world problems" as they call them.

I don't think you read what I wrote in the op. This is DIRECTLY from the corestandards.org website.


Mission Statement

...

www.corestandards.org...

They might have different books, but at the end they all indoctrinate the same thing in children, to "identify social and world problems", and then again you see the "social and world problems" that the "elites" want the children and you to "worry about" as they have them plastered all over tv, on street ads, newspapers, etc, etc.

There are other problems that come with this type of indoctrination, and in the video I linked below you will hear a licensed psychotherapist talk about these problems.

BTW, here is what a clinical mental health therapist, who does psychotherapy, has to say about the common core standards after watching a video about what can be found in these books. She has a masters degree in psychology, and is licensed by the state.



I know it is long, almost 40 minutes, but if you want you just have to listen to the first 6-7 minutes to understand the problem.

What she is saying, is that the core standards are teaching children to use their emotions, not their cognitive thinking, but their emotions, and mostly negative emotions to get what they want, which in this case is "the social and world problems that the elites want to impose in children and on you"...

The only things we should teach these kids is how to survive in a hostile environment!
In another decade things will probably be very different!

Sorry, but that is NOT part of the Common Core. Those books he keeps referring to are terrifying, I'll grant you that. But the CC does not stipulate what textbooks to use. Books are chosen by the individual school systems, and even then teachers don't always use them.

I'd be very interested in finding out more about those textbooks. Any chance you have information about them?

Well, I teach 4th grade in Missouri using the Common Core. I can tell you, at no point has our book series (newly made for the Common Core) asked me to write down changes in my students' belief system. I have looked through a fair amount of Common Core books but I have yet to see anything like what you have presented. I think perhaps your issue should be with whatever company made the book, not the standards.

Once again, teachers are not out there trying to indoctrinate your children. It does give me a giggle when these threads pop up though.

History teaching has shifted focus somewhat. Now, instead of memorizing a lot of data, students are taught to look at the "big picture," so to speak. In other words, when studying WWII, they might learn about the economic, social, political reasons for the war and how it played out. They'll learn the major dates and events, but minor details are left out. If you think about it, it makes sense. There's so much to study and learn, if you try to learn everything you can't. That's what google is for.


Having said that, my opinion on the overall quality of education in the US.....it's going downhill. Lots of reasons, and the main one, IMO, is the lack of work ethic of the students and their families. I could go on about this for days, but I'm supposed to be on break (doctors orders) so if you want more info just comb through my history. I've ranted plenty of times about the education system in the US.

No, what she is saying, and what they make clear from the beginning of the video, is they are talking about a textbook from Utah picked to teach the common core.

The problem is the book, not the standards.

As reported on Rueters News, integral to the Common Core is a hidden database on all
the children. Funded by Bill Gates, and Carnegie Corporation, the $100 million database
has only been "visible" for a few months now, while the data input began 18 months ago...
and already holds information on millions of children.

K -12 grade, comprised of names, addresses, including S.S. numbers, and further data is added about hobbies, career goals, attitudes toward school and homework completion.

The database includes test scores and attendance as well as learning disabilities, supposedly
collected as a way to profle children, in cooperation with School Districts. This information is
then stored, and provides a detailed view of students' educational experiences.

Legal rights to this information go to local education officials, who will be able to share files with
private companies that sell educational products and services, and may begin
to sell this information in 2015.


This is postively Orwelllian, and seems wrong on many levels. What is highly disconcerting
is this information has been collected without the consent or knowledge of the parents or the students.


Schools do not need parental consent to share student records with any “school official” who has a “legitimate educational interest,” according to the US Department of Education. The department defines “school official” to include private companies hired by the school, so long as they use
the data only for the purposes spelled out in their contracts.


That’s hardly reassuring to many parents.


“Once this information gets out there, it’s going to be abused. There’s no doubt in my mind,”

one of the parents said. Well, he is right.


The database is a joint project of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which provided most of the funding, the Carnegie Corporation of New York and school officials from several states. Amplify Education, a division of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, built the infrastructure over the past 18 months. When it was ready, the Gates Foundation turned the database over to a newly created nonprofit, inBloom Inc, which will run it.

States and school districts can choose whether they want to input their student records into the
system; the service is free for now, though inBloom officials say they will likely start to
charge fees in 2015. So far seven states; Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky,
North Carolina, and Massachusetts have committed to enter data from select school districts.
Louisiana and New York will be entering nearly all student records statewide.
