Ed Secretary Duncan: ‘White suburban moms upset about Common Core’ guess why?


Once again, it is the bitter clinger whites – in this case, women, who want to stop the indoctrination of our children. They are Paranoid, Fringers that are opposed.    Fascinating. Really. Where does this regime find all of these ignorant people. Earlier Duncan said: WaPo:

In June, he told a convention of newspaper editors that Core critics were misinformed at best and laboring under paranoid delusions at worst. Duncan said:

The Common Core has become a rallying cry for fringe groups that claim it is a scheme for the federal government to usurp state and local control of what students learn.

Via WaPo:

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told a group of state schools superintendents Friday that he found it “fascinating” that some of the opposition to the Common Core State Standards has come from “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.”

Yes, he really said that. But he has said similar things before. What, exactly, is he talking about?

In his cheerleading for the controversial Common Core State Standards — which were approved by 45 states and the District of Columbia and are now being implemented across the country (though some states are reconsidering) — Duncan has repeatedly noted that the standards and the standardized testing that goes along with them are more difficult than students in most states have confronted.

The Common Core was designed to elevate teaching and learning. Supporters say it does that; critics say it doesn’t and that some of the standards, especially for young children, are not developmentally appropriate.

In June, he told a convention of newspaper editors that Core critics were misinformed at best and laboring under paranoid delusions at worst. Duncan said:

The Common Core has become a rallying cry for fringe groups that claim it is a scheme for the federal government to usurp state and local control of what students learn. An op-ed in the New York Times called the Common Core “a radical curriculum.” It is neither radical nor a curriculum. … When the critics can’t persuade you that the Common Core is a curriculum, they make even more outlandish claims. They say that the Common Core calls for federal collection of student data. For the record, it doesn’t, we’re not allowed to, and we won’t. And let’s not even get into the really wacky stuff: mind control, robots, and biometric brain mapping.

    Once again the politics of division are seen from within the Obama regime.It can’t possibly be the policies that we oppose, it has to be something else according to the liberals and naturally they claim it is based on race. These people have played the race card way too often and I think people are finally tiring of it and are seeing it for what it really is.

    In a nutshell coming core is not about teaching the three R ‘s but rather spending the better part of the term preparing students to take a standardized test. Thankfully my son is a music teacher so he doesn’t suffer as mush as most teachers who are disgusted with this. The school district receives dirty money for each student who achieves a passing score on the test. Blackmail by the federal government is not a crime.

    There is no way to escape Common Core and its terrible impact on young minds — not even via homeschooling. See David Coleman, the Most Influential Education Figure You’ve Never Heard Of: Common Core Author Is Redesigning the SATs and AP Program. I’m glad that I approaching retirement and/or kicking over to private tutoring only.
