    Common Core lessons blasted for sneaking politics into elementary classrooms

    It's exactly what critics of the Common Core school curriculum warned about: Partisan political statements masquerading as English lessons finding their way into elementary school classrooms.

    Teaching materials aligned with the controversial national educational standards ask fifth-graders to edit such sentences as “(The president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair,” “The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation” and “the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.” The sentences, which appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education, are presented not only for their substance, but also to teach children how to streamline bulky writing.

    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.

    Hmmm, interesting since Common Core is being supported by corporations and many who will profit off of education.

    Re: Common Core lessons blasted for sneaking politics into elementary classrooms

    First of all, we need to remember that Common Core is a list of standards by which companies are creating curriculum. What your child will be doing in school is dependent on which reading/science/history program your district purchases. Just because the vast majority of states have adopted CCSS, it doesn't mean every child in those states is doing the same assignments, have the same textbooks, etc.

    I have many things to say about Common Core..........and not much of it is good.

    This worksheet is in no way related to Common Core.

    And right wingers. At it's core (excuse the pun) Common Core is a conservative idea, promoted by conservatives. It harkens back to the educational model of the 18th century

    And common core is being dumped by red states faster than they're dumping Medicaid extension, another idea rightists begged for..Red states are getting hammered on standardized tests compared to Blue states who are not quitting on their kids..right wing folks are losing out more on food stamps, sure to help in class .

    Identify the component of Common Core that required these particular questions to be asked in this particular way.
