    And this is how liberalism gained a foot hold in todays politics. with them propagandizing our children over the generations. why do you think most teachers and college professor lean to the left

    "Whoever controls youth, controls the future" was the slogan, given the German National club to the Communist thieves' den.
    You would think that at the top of the "common core" would be critical thinking.

    Conservatives are about doing things in the traditional way. When it comes to education, the way was to rely on a specific set of knowledge that should be taught. They had a canon for literature, science, and philosophy. Two of the most well-known proponents of the canon for literature are Alan and Harold Bloom (no relation) both of whom are conservative.

    Again, CCSS are the standards by which companies produce curricula. Each district chooses from "Common Core aligned" programs to purchase for their teachers and students. The specific questions will vary, depending on the writers of the program, their viewpoints, their philosophies....but it all goes back to the Common Core standards.

    I personally support a common core. One reason why is I (wrongly) thought that it would be a good way to keep politics out of education. I know my fellow conservatives have a bad reputation for crying about education brainwashing children when it really isn't, but this worksheet is a bit absurd.

    Common Core (in it's full form) is a progressive's idea of how education should be in this country. Every single little aspect of each child's life is going to be documented. Your child won't just get reading, writing, math grades - your child will be graded on social and emotional areas as well. And each category has at least 6 subcategories for which the teacher must show at least 3 pieces of evidence for the "grade". Report cards won't be A, B, C, D, F.... they'll be 1, 2, 3, 4 ---- each subtopic will have a grade. And, as I said, each subtopic grade needs to have documentation to show why that grade was given. It's all about data-tracking. LOTS of paperwork. LOTS of documentation. Which is probably why the standards are dumbed down - teachers won't have time to actually teach.

    "Your children don't belong to you - they belong to everyone" --- that's the foundation and philosophy behind Common Core. Common Core is a component of the Race to the Top program which was initiated by this administration and immediately accepted by blue states. The most conservative states in the country want no part of it. To say the CCSS is a conservative idea with conservative backing is ignorant.

    What.... The..... (long string of expletives).


    We are definitely either continuing to home-school, or go private education route.

    As I've explained, the core concept behind a Common Core is adherence to a canon (ie a body of knowledge every child should have) which is a conservative idea promoted by conservatives

    As far as measuring students achievements, again that's a conservative idea as demonstrated by the current vogue in education - testing kids using standardized tests.

    RTTP builds on bush*'s education program (if I remember correctly it was called Leave No Child Behind)

    And it's no surprise that the right is rejecting their own ideas. It's not the first time. Conservatives also like to whine about zero-tolerance policies, individual mandates, state exchanges for insurance, and states rights (when it comes to health insurance - they want to eliminate the states powers to regulate insurance in order to enable insurers to sell across state lines)

    Where are you getting your information?

    And you obviously don't have a clue what you're talking about since you don't even know the name of the FORMER federal education monstrosity - No Child Left Behind.

    You can google Harold Bloom and Alan Bloom or "the canon". It's also discussed in a book called "The Big Test" by a guy named Lemann or Lehman (I forget which)

    And yeah, "Leave No Child Behind" is way different than "No Child Left Behind"
