I mentioned recently that people should be aware of what is going on with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The name itself is an oxymoron because the states have no control over the standards. In fact, it is basically two educational companies that will control pretty much everything that happens in the classroom where CCSS are adapted.
Here is an excellent video that gives a first-hand look at some teacher manuals and student workbooks being used for CCSS. The short of it? Logic and a well thought out argument are out. Emotional manipulation is in. Starting in first grade. It’s called social justice, but that’s just a fancy name for undermining the parent-child relationship as well as ensuring our schools are churning out students who can’t think through an argument to support their view, but have been thoroughly
indoctrinated taught how to use emotional words to manipulate people to do what they want.
And even if your children are in private school or charter school, they are not immune to this. I always had in the back of my mind that we could utilize the Christian school in our area until I saw on their website that they are totally embracing the CCSS. So much for that idea!
Watch the video and tell me if I’m wrong in my assessment of what you see here.
