Limbaugh: The "Common Core" Debacle

by Rush Limbaugh in the Limbaugh Letter, January 2014

"[T]he pushback is coming from, sort of, white suburban moms who, all of a sudden, their child isn't as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn't quite as good as they thought they were, and that's pretty scary." -- Obama Education Secretary Arne Duncan, dismissing widespread parent complaints about the Regime's national education program known as Common Core, Washington Post, 11/16/13

Of course. Criticizing the latest progressive educational scheme being foisted by Obama on all grade levels in public schools across the nation is ... racist. And scary.

The truth is, it's Common Core that's scary, and the pushback is coming from parents everywhere, who are seeing the awful impact on their kids. A highly unusual letter of protest signed by over 500 New York State principals notes: "[M]any children cried during or after testing, and others vomited or lost control of their bowels or bladders. Others simply gave up. One teacher reported that a student kept banging his head on the desk..."

Such visceral reactions are not the result of tough new educational standards, which we all want. They're the result of interacting with material that makes no damn sense, as you'll see below. The pro-Common-Core talking points sound good: "standards", "academic achievement", "accountability". The reality, as with all things liberal, is just the opposite.

The lefty-Chicago-rooted education philosophy behind the scheme is virulently anti-memorization and anti-fact, with a bizarre obsession with process. It explicitly devalues background knowledge, which is unfairly "privileging", in order to "level the playing field" and "make a profound contribution to equity". Common Core State Standards [CCSS] bring a shocking new level of liberal indoctrination -- already in a classroom near you.






Stupid. Confusing. Destructive. A privacy nightmare. No wonder Common Core has been dubbed "ObamaCore". 97超级碰碰碰碰久久久久_一线完整版在线观看免费_日本三级香港三级人妇三
