“The previous blow to Catholics was, of course, the many Bishops’ embrace of Common Core for Catholic students. U. S. Prelates instilled Common Core into their Catholic classrooms under the banner of the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools. Such standards and benchmarks along with their rubrics and exemplars were formulated by change agents to teach Catholic students socialistic “social justice”, globalism, and a “Sustainability” agenda (U.N. Agenda 21?) all under such headings as 21st Century Learning Skills and “Best Practices”.
Now, Catholics are being asked to pay for this restructuring of K-12 Catholic education to meet national standards of governance and leadership affecting diocesan schools. Catholics are being asked to contribute to local philanthropic foundations to support the overhauling of Catholic education, with the “contemporary context” of Common Core standards and progressive Marxist techniques. Grand plans for funding and governance are now taking hold in many dioceses, as presented in the 2011 report, Sustaining Urban Catholic Elementary Schools: An Examination of Governance Models and Funding Strategies.”
