In five paragraphs, they were required to prove that Jews were the source of Germany’s problems.
Common Core is such a tool used by the elites who want what is termed as a "New World Order".
What exactly is Common Core?
According to Wikipedia, Common Core is defined as follows:
The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative in the United States that details what K-12 students should know in English language arts and mathematics at the end of each grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two- or four-year college programs or enter the workforce.
Well, that sounds all warm and cozy, and parents probably would be okay with such a curriculum if indeed it was as innocent as it sounds.However, once we dig deeper into this program, we begin to see that it's not that educational, and in fact it is down right dangerous to our children and to the nation at large.
One example is a teacher who is pulling her children from the school district she grew up in. Why? - because of the program known as Common Core.
Her name is Lynn Rigby. In 1995 she decided to teach in in a school where she grew up in the Florida district outside Orlando. She also decided to send her children there as well. But after a while she began to see a big problem. According to The Blaze:
Rigby has been seeing a really big problem — and she detailed it in a meticulous 2,800-word letter to politicians and educators that took her six weeks to complete.In it she explained that after a school year that was “totally disheartening” — as well as many attempts to navigate the myriad curriculum and standardized testing issues that grew only more maddening, perplexing, and convoluted as time wore on — she and her husband decided to pull their youngest kids from elementary school in the district they’d loved for so long.Why? So they could have a fighting chance to learn.And while Rigby’s letter — which elicited such a reaction that it was highlighted by The Washington Post — highlighted Or more accurately, “The Florida Standards which are aligned to Common Core,” she clarified. “The materials remain the same.” (The Post pointed out that the “new Florida Standards in math and Language Arts were approved earlier this year after the state pulled out of the Common Core State Standards initiative and devised their own, which actually look a great deal like the Core.”).Also in the letter she basically described the fact that as a 40 yr old teacher with an educational degree, she should be able to solve questions meant for 8 and 9 year olds in a matter of seconds without having to second -guess, but that wasn't the case either.
Rigby pointed out that “about 90%” of the assignments her son Jackson brings home has consisted of “worksheets, done in class and done at home. Everything I’ve seen this year is stand-alone, segmented. Nothing is deep, there is no time for kids to even consider what is interesting to them, because you’re on page 168 today and you need to get through 170 by tomorrow.” For Rigby it’s “a joke, a joke being played on our kids. On MY KID, I’m not cool with that.”
She also called out President Obama, saying his Race to the Top “dictates these tests and Common Core through funding. But education is not a race – it is a journey – why must we hurry it along?”“I am asking you to start thinking outside of the box,” Rigby added. “Stand up for our kids. Put creativity back in learning and teaching. Someone has to take the initiative to save the schools and a generation of kids – why not you? Why not us? Who is in a better position than one of the highest performing counties in the state?”
Basically, the program makes your kid stupid. But, not only that, it sets them up to be a servant and not a leader.
As if that isn't bad enough, now revealed in the curriculum, some Albany High School English classes received an assignment to explain why Jews are evil! They were told to write a report on why they were evil, and the were to write the report as though they were writing it to Nazi officials!
They were also told to use solid rationale from government propaganda to show how loyal they are to the Third Reich!! (I wish I was making this up, but I'm not).
In an article at Federalist Papers.org, this hideous assignment is explained:
Students were asked to watch and read Nazi propaganda, then pretend their teacher was a Nazi government official who needed to be convinced of their loyalty. In five paragraphs, they were required to prove that Jews were the source of Germany’s problems. The exercise was intended to challenge students to formulate a persuasive argument and was given to three classes, Albany Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard said. She said the assignment should have been worded differently.“I would apologize to our families,” she said. “I don’t believe there was malice or intent to cause any insensitivities to our families of Jewish faith.”
One-third of the students refused to complete the assignment, she said.Vanden Wyngaard said the exercise reflects the type of writing expected of students under the new Common Core curriculum, the tough new academic standards that require more sophisticated writing. Such assignments attempt to connect English with history and social studies.The good news was that at least a third of the class refused to write the assignment - the bad news was that two-thirds of the class were willing to write the assignment. The latter can be considered as "order takers".
What I mean by "order takers" are for example, those soldiers and officers in the German army and SS who upon the post war trials would follow up with the words, "I was only following orders", upon being asked to explain the reasons for committing atrocities during the war. Suchs assignments as the one mentioned above are not innocent, but subtle and mind-altering. They are indoctrinating.
There are many more examples that I could cover, in order to show that Common Core is ultimately "Corrupt to the Core", and need to be thrown out of every school in the country.
