Proponents of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) often insist that the new standards are not a federal takeover of education. Actually, Common Core supporters could be right in one sense: Common Core is not so much about a nationalization of education as it is part of a world-wide initiative that may ultimately serve to make American values and practices secondary to global sharing.
Writing at Crisis Magazine, journalist Mary Jo Anderson asserts that Common Core is nothing less than the latest attempt by the U.N. to impose on the United States a globalist perspective with the utopian goals of worldwide peace, environmental sustainability, and economic fairness. In that context, Common Core is part of the Obama administration’s “transformational” education plan that places emphasis on global relationships rather than a unique American culture.

Michael Chapman explains the Connections between Common Core, UNESCO, and Agenda 21.
The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has a program called "Education for All" that includes the same people and same ideas as Common Core. The Global Fund for Education was formulated by the UN, "agreed to" by Barack Obama, funded by Bill Gates, and Common Core was imposed on the American people through Department of Education (DOE) funding schemes.
Before explaining Common Core, you must first understand that it is a part of the Agenda 21 program. In the Agenda 21 document chapter 36 is titled "Promoting education, public awareness and training". This chapter goes on to explain how promoting education, public awareness and training, with focus on environmental education, is a critical theme both relevant to the implementation of the whole of Agenda 21 and indispensable for achieving sustainable development..............
Americas parents will not allow this, neither the religious right in the nation, with the ratings Obama is getting lately from his "healthcare transformation" is not chance in hell that he will get to screw more the nations educational system.
