There has been a lot of discussion about Common Core lately. Parents and children across the country are expressing grave concerns about the realities of this massive policy shift. The Obama administration is trying to turn Common Core into a national curriculum by offering states increased federal education funding if they force Common Core’s curriculum on their public schools.

Experts say that nationalizing the standards leads to worse educational outcomes, opportunities for abuse and many other problems. Classic literature is being replaced by informational texts like government documents. Our children will be dumbed down and lose their individuality. They will be trained to think, learn and act exactly like every other child across the country. Teachers have reported fear and increased stress as a result of having to follow a script instead of having the freedom to use creative methods.

Common Core comes with a disturbing data mining program. This data comes in the form of audio, video and biometric scanning.

In a Florida school, retinal scans were done without parental consent.

 

Freedom Project Education is an organization that provides classical K-12 online schooling. They have been spreading the message and exposing the evils of Common Core tirelessly. Mary Black, Freedom Project Education curriculum director, said:

“The data mining leads to total control and total tracking of the child. It completely strips the child of his or her own privacy.”

The following video goes into great detail about Common Core and exposes all of the details about the data mining program. Everything is well documented.

 

It is imperative that we all continue to educate one another about Common Core. Fighting this will continue to be an uphill battle. Signing the petition below is a great start!
