What you neglected to report on is the fact that more and more states are finding that the Common Core standards are broken and do not work. The creator of this system did not even finish his studies on it, but our government signed off on it anyways. Every citizen in our wonderful city should be calling for this system to be eradicated from our school systems.
Nationalizing our educational system. Isn't this what totalitarian regimes do?
Watch what happens to a parent who dares to disagree with X-rated material that his child is required to read.
Reject this Common Core system with a passion if you care about the education of our children.
I find it disgusting that school administrators are assigning English Language Arts materials with detailed descriptions of sex acts. This is the reading material students were required to read: Web Link
Yes, our high school students should not be exposed to literature that has any sexual content. Moreover, we must remove Huck Finn, Catcher in the Rye, and Inherit the Wind from our school libraries, as these pieces of totalitarian fiction deny Christianity while promoting a sick version of Godless Marxism within our communities. Local control of our children's reading material is our best defense against Darwinism, contemporary science (global warming), and smut (Jodi Picoult) in the classroom.
If you like Common Core, you're really going to love the writing assignment given to students in the San Bernardino school district.
Students were asked to : "debate, in essay form, whether the Holocaust was ‘merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain wealth."
The 'justification' for this assignment, by Rialto Unified’s interim school superintendent, Mohammad Z. Islam: "When tragic events occur in history, there is often debate about their actual existence,” the assignment reads. “For example, some people claim the Holocaust is not an actual historical event, but instead is a propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain."
This is what is being taught in your schools.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
