Let me just tell you there is no way I would want to teach under a stream lining of education where there is basically a "national curriculum" for all schools. One thing I have noticed is it seems to do away with all vocational education and other career tracks and points every child regardless of family income or aptitude into the college [future student loan debt] track. Of course this is a plan to dumb down education even more, and shove every child into a one size fits all box and indoctrinate them in my opinion for the new world order. Imagine a scenario where teachers no longer decide what they are going to teach or how or when, looking at the needs of their own students, but according to an already scripted formula! Could it be taken to the extreme that every fourth grader on Sept 20th, learns the same history or math lesson? I believe so. After all they have standardized all the testing nationwide, why not the lessons themselves?
parent's groups out there protesting. Good for them. Their only solution may be removing their children from the public school system if they can manage it.
Notice in this video, Bill Gates's influence and money financing Common Core. Bill Gates's money is invested in many globalist agendas and education is not left out. Of course this is all linked to global elites as well. I plan to watch the other 4 videos in this series and may post them later.
This video is long but goes into the Common Core ties with sustainable development. He makes a good point about how this is a new system to retro-fit young people into a future they are predicting instead of a broad based education to prepare for an unknown future. Here too he focuses on some of the nonsense such as having students write a "bill of rights" for animals. One leftist platform is animal rights and equalizing humans to animals. Warning video includes Michele Bachmann in a positive fashion but overall warns of many truths.
Common Core is linked to the International Baccalaureate a group that is a NGO and headquartered in Geneva Switzerland.
Only 5 states have refused Common Core, though a few others who adopted it are pushing back or only have done partially adoption of the standards.
With the "Parents Have Rights" website, check out where they talk about GLOBAL CITIZENS on the one video.
Common Core is Agenda 21
"Common Core is an integral part of UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development: globalization is the standardization of systems. Whether the system is law enforcement or land use or government, the standardization, harmonization, and integration of all international methods of management is essential for total control. Education is the flash point for embedding system acceptance in all sectors of the population. Standardized propaganda is developed for pre-kindergarten to post graduate school; this is what is meant by 'Life Long Learning.' Breaking down traditional methods of learning in order to re-socialize the populace is the goal. Obedient, dependent people who are constantly being propagandized will provide the 'human capital' to fully implement UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development."I know a lot of Christian parents are homeschooling, though not all are able to due to economic demands and other circumstances, but they definitely are focusing on the youth. I taught some in the early 90s, and remember the vast array of anti-Christian agendas and messages. I was not yet a Christian but some lessons they expected me to teach as a substitute teacher and in another job, were pretty obvious, like having first graders color their "WORLD CITIZEN" badges!. I was an independent enough thinker even back then already reading books like NO LOGO by Naomi Klein knowing globalism wasn't such a great thing. Of course too, I have shared with you, my time in the Roman Catholic church when I was volunteering to be a religious ed teacher and they demanded I stick to script, and I noticed within their religious textbooks for seventh graders endless praise for the United Nations and other "social justice" and liberal agendas
One thing I noticed during my years in education, that they seemed to want us to focus on many non-practicals, and social agendas rather then the true intake of knowledge, exploration or critical thinking skills.
In fact, many people feel like even the tens of thousands they have paid out for college was wasted money, which instead of teaching them actual skills in class taught them a pile of leftist mush instead. The IB group has links to the UN and desires to fulfill UN millennial goals and other UNESCO mandates.
In this video they show some of the lesson plans that will come with these programs. I have seen lesson plans like this even 20 years ago. Notice when they talk about turning first graders into would be social activists, how silly, but this is lifelong programming as you can see. Notice when he talks about the fill-ins that basically teach them to marginalize their parents and more subtle indoctrinations! They don't let up on the programming in this lesson, not at all.
One thing about the education world, the overt leftists just don't predominate in the colleges, they predominate at least at policy levels for the younger set. My college professors at a medium sized teaching and state college were all extreme leftists, with the exception of a few--and those I had for general science classes and from within a special honors program. They do indoctrinate young teachers. I was almost totally weeded out as a trouble-maker and flunked in one class even with As and Bs on the tests for questioning outcome based education. Later, I kept my mouth shut and got an A with the retake and a second professor. If you want to see one of the most overt liberal organizations in this county, the National Education Association which many teachers belong to or pay union dues to is one. Check out their magazine here, right on their front page, there is praise for immigration amnesty and progressivism! This isn't to say the right wing of the NWO is not evil too, but you can see the overt agendas and leftism.
The New World Order wants all schools in a row influencing children to embrace globalism, and other agendas. No free thinking here, no creative teaching allowed either. Even the idea of dependence on work books bothers me as I believe a teacher shouldn't just follow a script in getting ideas across to students but bring some of themselves and their own experiences into it and teach lessons according to student's individual needs. That definitely will be gone as they standardize education, and we know how wonderfully that worked with other areas of society such as restaurants--we got McDonalds which barely resembles real food and now we will have education that is not about learning but total indoctrination. They don't want thinkers out there, they want future blind followers who all have been taught the same things.
Post script on this article, I have read the writings of JOHN TAYLOR GATTO who is a writer who has questioned the entire educational system. If you are a parent or interested in these areas of life, check out his writings especially on the history of education in America and why he left the classroom himself. I'll leave you with one of his best quotes....
“I've noticed a fascinating phenomenon in my thirty years of teaching: schools and schooling are increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet. No one believes anymore that scientists are trained in science classes or politicians in civics classes or poets in English classes. The truth is that schools don't really teach anything except how to obey orders. This is a great mystery to me because thousands of humane, caring people work in schools as teachers and aides and administrators, but the abstract logic of the institution overwhelms their individual contributions. Although teachers to care and do work very, very hard, the institution is psychopathic -- it has no conscience. It rings a bell and the young man in the middle of writing a poem must close his notebook and move to a different cell where he must memorize that humans and monkeys derive from a common ancestor.”
