~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
Islam is in and Christianity is out, the Founding Fathers are just “dead white guys,” “D**n the Second Amendment,” and people who oppose Common Core are “idiots.” These are just a few of the sentiments expressed by a former marketing executive for textbook publishing giant Pearson Education, as she reveals on hidden camera that the federal government’s Common Core and Advanced Placement U.S. History framework are designed to indoctrinate America’s children with a leftist world view.
Kim Koerber made the startling comments in the third video (below) of a Project Veritas series on Common Core, the controversial educational scheme Barack Obama has sought to impose on states nationwide. As Project Veritas reports, the former Pearson insider, “who now works for National Geographic, was caught on camera justifying the Common Core curriculum on the grounds of anti-American and unconstitutional values. ‘People that are not educated, Fox TV viewers, think that Common Core comes from the educated liberal groups and that’s why they are against it…,’ revealed Koerber to undercover Project Veritas journalists….”

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is resigning. One of the early questions about Duncan was why he and Obama weren’t shy about defending Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar,” Kevin Jennings. It was so ugly, the Washington Times apologized for having to talk about it. Duncan took the position in 2009, as did Jennings, who left in 2011.
The Obama administration is stonewalling serious inquiries about sexual filth propagated by a senior presidential appointee who is responsible for promoting and implementing federal education policy. Democrats clearly are terrified of ruffling the feathers of their activist homosexual supporters, who are an influential part of the Democratic party’s base. This scandal, however, is not merely about homosexual behavior; it is about promoting sex between children and adults – and it’s time for President Obama to make clear that abetting such illegal perversion has no place in his administration.
It is curious why White House officials and Education Secretary Arne Duncan believe it’s worth it politically to continue taking arrows for defending Kevin Jennings, who is Mr. Obama’s controversial “safe schools czar.” The evidence suggesting he is unfit to serve as a senior presidential appointee is startling and plentiful […]
Whatever is going on in Ramapo is more than about education and politics. At the beginning of the video, the man with his back to the camera tells Charles that he’s supposed to stand with his own people.
Some 9,000 children are in East Ramapo public schools, and most are poor and black or Latino. Meanwhile, 24,000 students attend private religious schools, which received fast rising sums of taxpayer money for busing and special-needs services.
Supporters of the board said the state’s funding formula doesn’t give enough support to an area with such unusual demographics and the district deserved more state aid….
A lawsuit has been filed against members of the East Ramapo school board and their legal counsel. Parents and educators are demanding that each member steps down while also demanding the resignation of East Ramapo school superintendent, Joel Klein.
As expected, that went over real well. After two months of protests and demands that Klein resign, the district superintendent walked back his statement in a letter that “It was not my intention to be disrespectful or insensitive to these students or to the Latino community.”
The casualties here are the students and the truth. There is a cultural war going on at these meetings.
Who will get the blame if and when the makeup of the East Ramapo school board has been fundamentally transformed?
The conviction of the Senate that they HAD to pass SB1177 Every Child Achieves Act has been hard to understand. Grassroot groups like Eagle Forum and the American Principles Project have been lobbying them to remove the federally mandated testing, the sections that give the USDoED final approval of state education plans and the expanded collection of individual student data. Out of one side of his mouth, Senate HELP Committee Chairman Senator Alexander has agreed. “I trust the state much more than Washington,” he said. “The path to real accountability is not through Washington, D.C., it’s through the states.” But from the other side of his mouth come statements like this.
“These important measures of student achievement [assessments] need to be reported publicly so parents can know how their child is performing. It is important the results be disaggregated so we know if any particular group of students is being ignored or left behind. It can also help teachers support students who are struggling to meet State standards.”
Each one is its own contradiction and a contradiction to his earlier statement about who should control the process. If it is only parents who need to know how their child is doing, then there is no need to publicly report results, and certainly no need to send those individual student results to DC. For the people in DC to believe that they can tell from a set of semi aggregated scores on a test of reading ability whether some subgroup is being systematically “left behind” is an absurdity and again says that they don’t trust the state to look at those numbers and figure out what is going on. The last statement is the most ludicrous of all. No teacher believes that standardized tests offer them unique insight or support for the educational needs of any particular child. That statement is just a sprinkle Alexander threw in on top of his sundae of pablum to make him sound like he cares about teachers and little children….
