As seen on Facebook. Is this true? This Facebook message has been circulating in several anti-Common Core groups. Would children actually be threatened with a fine anywhere from $750 to $30,000? The language mirrors that in the copyright notice from the US Copyright Office: Would this copyright infringement language apply to students? Read this from Truman University in Missouri: This notice should put a hold on the goal of collaboration (a 21st century skill) for students: I have an idea. Let’s all write the CCSSO and ask the organization if it would fine a minor with copyright infringement talking […]

Common Core Copyright Fine for Students?
Fact or not, I don’t know but put nothing past those with any kind of power.
Well, starting back about 1970, your friendly local schools started teaching little kids that they had responsibilities, like, for example to “Save the Earth”. And they were supposed to go home and tell their parents that they had better ‘Protect the Earth”, too… Wasn’t that just so cute? Then, of course, they had to be taught about s.e.x.
Yeah, we took the load off parents and put it right on the kids. Then they had to start worrying about America being a bully, and being a warmongering country. Heavy, weighty stuff for the kids to be burdened with. Then they had to worry about other cultures, multicultures, diverse multicultures, and inclusivity. Then it was sustainability. They had to worry about whether food and life and air and water was “sustainable” or not, whether the things “Big Corp.” and “Big Ag” and “Big Oil” and “Big Pharma” were doing would kill them or disfigure them or make them get too fat and die.
And on and on and on.
So it should come as no surprise that here we are in 2014 with kids having to face $30,000 fines for not going along with everything their pseudo-government, the public school, tells them . See, they have “responsibilities”.
Speaking of the “Bigs”, remember when ‘Big Ed’ told America they wanted kids to be critical thinkers, to question everything, to get a really broad, liberal education and all that? That was a lie. The only things they wanted kids to question was the authority of their parents and the church, and having renounced that authority, to take as gospel what they learned about life from the …..educators in their…..schools.
All the little cell phones and iPads and recording devices they wanted the kids to have were supposed to be used to catch their parents in the act of….hurting the environment, telling their kids things the school didn’t want parents telling their kids, policemen ‘bullying’ innocent drug users, preachers criticizing the government. They sure didn’t want all this new technology turned around on THEM. Nobody was supposed to rat on THEM. No, no, no!
So now you have the schools and the “educators” threatening the kids. And they will get away with it. Because America cowers in fear of Big Ed. Because it’s like, ‘the government’, dontchaknow? Kids, parents, clergy. Hell, even the Chamber of Commerce fears Big Ed these days. And yes, even school boards, even the ones not totally communist yet, fears Big Ed, And Big Arne Duncan, and Big Eric Holder, and Big Barack Obama. But they are not alone. Entire State Legislatures, and the Congress of the United States, fear Big Ed.
The $64 question, then, becomes “Is it in the end going to fall on the kids themselves to take on Big Ed? Are the schoolkids of today, they ones who are increasingly fed up (no pun intended) with Big Ed’s school lunch crapola and now having to fight through the incomprehensible and stupid Common Core and TestingTestingTesting regimens , are they going to turn 18 and start turning the tables on Big Ed? Perhaps.
And perhaps they need some encouragement in that regard. Someone? Anyone?
