I haven’t researched this, all I know is that it’s consistent with what I’ve seen. Common core originated out of a secretive, top-down, largely invisible operation, seemingly for the purpose of imposing dependency, control and an inability to think. http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2015/03/common-cores-recipe-for-imposed-ignorance/ http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/12/american-schools-discover-recess/ I note that the “muslim brotherhood” has its roots in british intelligence. This is a bankster operation. http://www.redmoonrising.com/Ikhwan/MB.htm http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/04/child-abuse-as-a-tool-of-social-control/ http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2018/07/cultural-engineering-in-sweden/ http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/04/the-muslim-weapon/
“Where did Common Core come from?” is a question I often hear from parents as I travel the country speaking about the Islamic infiltration of America.
Because in 2014-15 America, public school students via Common Core are:
• Participating in public school-sponsored trips to mosques via taxpayer expense, girls must wear head scarves (Colorado parents complain)
• Debating whether or not the Holocaust was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” (an eighth-grade assignment defended by the Rialto Unified School District, Los Angeles)
• Pledging allegiance in Arabic (New York)
• Observing two “Muslim holy days,” (New York City)
• Being taught Islamic vocabulary lessons (North Carolina)
• Being taught Islamic culture (Tennessee)
• Being taught world history from Islamic perspective (Florida) that includes learning about the five pillars of Islam (Maryland father, a Marine Corps veteran, complains and is banned from school grounds)
Parents in every state are outraged, protesting and asking, “Why is Islam being taught in public schools?” and “How did this happen?” “Where is the ACLU?” “Where are the people ‘protesting against’ religion being taught in public schools?”
Common Core origins
The short answer is that President Obama’s push for “hope and change” translates into completely transforming America — for the worse. Common Core is but one of many parts of an intricate plan to infiltrate every area of American society with Islam. Which is why, Common Core’s origin and funding came from Qatar, Libya and Saudi Arabia.
Globally, Common Core originated from the “One World Education” concept, a global goal orchestrated by the Connect All Schools program. Its origin is funded by the Qatar Foundation International (QFI). The director of QFI’s Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics is Tariq Ramadan, grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder, Hassan al-Banna.
According to the WND website, in 2011, QFI “partnered with the Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to facilitate matchmaking between classrooms in the U.S. and international schools through … the ‘Connect All Schools’ project.” QFI states on its website that the initiative was founded in response to Mr. Obama’s infamous 2009 Cairo speech, during which the Muslim Brotherhood was seated in the front row.
Mr. Obama’s mentor, domestic terrorist [and probable intelligence operative -rw] Bill Ayers, received $49.2 million from Vartan Gregorian, a board member of the Qatar Foundation, who also is involved with Mr. Obama’s White House Fellowships Commission. Gregorian is an integral part of Connect All Schools, through which Qatar invested $5 million to teach Arabic in American public schools.
Domestically, in America, Common Core was “created by” the National Governor’s Association (NGA), Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), Achieve Inc., ACT and the College Board. The Common Core State Standards are copyrighted by the NGA and CCSSO, a private company, which means they cannot be changed.
Many groups helped create these standards (chief among them, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Nations) but Pearson Education, an NGA donor and CCSSO’s listed business and industry partner, is integral to Common Core.
Pearson Education designs “education products and services to institutions, governments and direct to individual learners.” Listed on the London and New York Stock Exchange, of its numerous investors, the Libyan Investment Authority is its largest financial contributor, holding 26 million shares.
According to the Financial Times, the Libyan Investment Authority was founded by Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Seif al-Islam; more than five Gaddafi family members own shares. The Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR, a recently designated terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates), Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the Muslim Brotherhood invested in Pearson Education through the Libyan Investment Authority.
Despite this connection, according to the Guardian, Pearson Education claims as a public company operating in a free market it has no control over its shareholders’ terrorist-related activities.
Common Core was implemented in states that accepted federal funds from the 2009 “Race to the Top” initiative, which encouraged states to receive federal money to adopt new standards that would improve their public school children’s test performance results.
In order for a state to participate, the state board of education and the state’s educational professional standards board would have voted to adopt Common Core standards. Each participating state has posted the Common Core Standards on its state department of education website.
Two years prior to the Obama administration’s Race to the Top initiative, in 2007, the FBI uncovered documents revealing the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its subsidiary organizations like CAIR, planned to indoctrinate American K-12 students by teaching Islam.
The seized documents were part of the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror-funding trial in U.S. history. The FBI uncovered the Muslim Brotherhood’s manifesto “on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” (Exhibit 42945 and Exhibit 42946).
After states applied for “Race to the Top” federal funds in 2009, Pearson Education created Common Core curriculum and standards. Pearson Education is also the sole evaluator of teachers in some states. In order for New York State to continue receiving “Race to the Top” federal funds, it had to implement “reforms.” Pearson Education now solely administers the Teacher Performance Assessment (TPA).
New York State no longer evaluates its teachers — a private company does — whose primary investors fund terrorism and propagate Islam.
Additionally, no state or federal oversight exists for university programs (under Title VI of the Higher Education Act) that train K-12 teachers to develop lesson plans and seminars on “Middle East Studies.” These programs and teacher training materials were developed by Pearson Education and largely funded by Saudi Arabia….
Orwellian ‘Newspeak’ Coming To Common Core Classrooms Everywhere
Hacked Emails Reveal What The DNC Really Thinks About Education
A key staffer at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ordered a segment about Common Core removed from a DNC-produced video, acknowledging that the party’s position on education is out of line with public opinion, according to hacked emails released by WikiLeaks.
In a May 3 email, Eric Walker, a deputy communications director at the DNC, ordered a video to be changed that had referenced Common Core in a positive way.
“A) Common core is a political third rail that we should not be touching at all. Get rid of it. B) Most people want local control of education so having Cruz and Trump saying it on a DNC video is counterproductive. Would get rid of any references to that,” he wrote.
(Listen to Off The Grid Radio’s in-depth report on Common Core here.)
The Common Core State Standards are supported by US Department of Education and the nation’s two top teachers’ unions: the National Education Association (NEA) and American Federation of Teachers. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton also backs them, Education Week reported. They are also widely opposed by school choice advocates and groups like the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA).
The words “Common Core” not in the Democratic platform, HSLDA Federal Relations Deputy Director Andrew Mullins noted.
“While direct references to the Common Core may be noticeably absent from the Democratic platform, the party’s interest in a one-size-fits-all Federal approach to education remains,” Mullins wrote at the HSLDA website. “On page 32, the platform calls for the federal government to play an expanded role in education—which is exactly how we got the Common Core to begin with.”…
COMMON CORE – STANDARDIZED REALITY AND THE SLOW KILL OF DIVERGENT THINKING
[10/13/16] We’ve come a long way in education since the 1960s, but not necessarily in a positive direction. The psychologist J.P. Guilford once drew a distinction between two forms of thinking: convergent and divergent. One produces alternative theories, creative ideas, and useful solutions, the other, the dogmatization of information and a ‘single’ correct answer which can be force-fed to students on standardized tests and in common coreclassrooms.
Divergent thinking is done by a mind that is turned ‘on’ and engaged in the constant questioning of reality, instead of passively ‘dumbed down’ by rote solutions force-fed through memorization and shallow learning. Divergent thinking creates fantastical worlds such as those imagined by the likes of Nikola Tesla, Buckminster Fuller, Beethoven, Einstein, Pythagorus, Leonardo Da Vinci, Marina Abramovic, and similar personalities.
Standardized education in America causes the slow death of divergent thinking, in its aim to create psychologically muted and Pavlovian-trained followers who won’t buck the system.
“Standardized Testing in America has a troubled history. Its agenda has long remained veiled behind “expert opinions” and “latest studies.” The future of American education stands in a tradition of social engineering, data mining, pseudo-psychology, and dumbing down classroom strategies.
Common Core promises great advances though its true benefits are monetary ones for software companies and partner politicians.
It it is our contention that the goal of Common Core, or rather, of its assessment process, isnothing less than a massive addition to the power of the surveillance state, to the privileged corporations destined to manage it, to the further drastic curtailment of our civil liberties, and to the eventual inhibition of any individual creativity, genius, responsibility, and any general or popular intellectual culture resulting from them.
Our argument is different than that leveled by many critics against the Common Core standards, for our focus is thus not upon pedagogy, or content but rather upon its assessment process and its implicit consequences for parents, students, and the teaching profession.
Our goal is to stimulate not only discussion of Common Core’s radical agenda for the consolidation of the surveillance state, but for its ultimate rejection.”
Education as Social Engineering
The common core curriculum is anti-human, and arguably not educational in any regard, unless of course you are educating future slaves. As Dr. Farrell explains, it is simply another form of social engineeringand elite mind control. He believes the problem with common core is so significant that a ‘black market’ in education will be created whereupon someone who actually understands a subject will be paid to tutor our children, though they’ve just spent eight hours being drilled with useless information.
Farrell points to the habit of the ‘elite,’ who send their children to very expensive schools in Silicon Valley. These children aren’t learning on computers, nor with all the latest technology, because it would rob them of the chance to develop higher levels of learning. You can know a million facts, but creativity is still the highest form of intelligence. It is what you do with all those ‘facts’ that matters. Common core divests our children of this innate skill, slowly killing their creative urges, and the development of this quintessential skill.
Absorb and Synthesize
For example, Beethoven was very strict with himself about his ‘absorb’ and ‘synthesize’ states of learning. This allows abstract ideas to marinate and then be fleshed out in the world as something more succinct and tangible. He took long walks through the forests of Vienna in order to let deep, subconscious ‘eureka’ moments percolate to the surface of his mind….
Only 40% Of Teachers Support Common Core
(Barbara Hollingsworth) Less than half of Americans (49 percent) and only 40 percent of teachers now say they support Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
Public support has dropped 16 percent since 2013, when 65 percent of Americans were in favor of the Common Core standards, according to the ninth annual Education Next poll released Tuesday.
But the greatest change in opinion has been among teachers.
In 2013, 76 percent of teachers said they were in favor of the Common Core. In the new survey, only 40 percent say the favor Common Core–representing a 36-point drop in two years.
The poll, conducted in May and June by Paul Peterson and Martin West of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, asked a representative sample of 4,083 this question: “As you may know, in the last few years states have been deciding whether or not to use the Common Core, which are standards for reading and math that are the same across the states. In the states that have these standards, they will be used to hold public schools accountable for their performance. Do you support or oppose the use of the Common Core standards in your school?”
(See ednext_2015_poll_1.pdf )
Among teachers and parents, the two groups most directly impacted by CCSS, “respondents who believe the standards have had a negative effect on schools (51%) exceed those who think they have had a positive effect (28%),” researchers noted.
Support for Common Core is down among both Republicans and Democrats. In 2013, 57 percent of Republicans and 64 percent of Democrats said they supported CCSS. But by 2015, that percentage had dropped 20 points for Republicans (to 37 percent) and seven points for Democrats (to 57 percent).
Now exactly half (50 percent) of Republicans responding to the survey say they oppose Common Core, compared to just 16 percent of Republicans who were against it in 2013.
Among Democrats, who are the most likely to support Common Core, opposition over the last two years rose consistently, from 10 percent in 2013, to 17 percent in 2014, to 25 percent in 2015….
