ABCs of DumbDown: Common Core and the Facts: What Conservative Groups Don’t Tell You

Many parents across the nation are riled up about Common Core. There is a growing “Opt Out” movement. They recognize that the high-stakes testing process is a pressure-cooker for children, their parents and teachers. But watch out for their tunnel vision! Many are not fully informed about the facts. Many are being spoon fed by large conservative groups.

This blog has been publishing factual information about Common Core since its inception last May 2014. The history behind Common Core, the agenda that drives it, and even the “controlled opposition” to it have been the subject of many blog posts. It is even MORE important now to know the facts about Common Core, and to become aware of what the “conservative” groups are NOT telling you.

Recently Heritage took credit for the opposition of ESEA. But, as we pointed out in several blog articles HERE and HERE,  we blew the whistle on these bad bills, long before the “Johnny-Come-Lately” so-called opposition by non-grassroots well-funded groups like Heritage. Sending out an alert coinciding the day a vote is scheduled to be taken doesn’t constitute any sort of credible “opposition.”

While the big so-called conservative groups are claiming victory, look at the dates on this blog to see how far back we sounded the alarms — and they went VIRAL!!! We not a group. We are moms and pops, grandmothers and grandfathers, teachers, school board members, students, ministers, priests, researchers, doctors, your neighbor next door…. the TRUE grassroots. It was the true grassroots that stopped this legislation. Anita Hoge pumped out alerts, and this blog posted it. People all around the country did their homework, studied the facts, passed along the information and lobbied to defeat this bill.

Don’t be caught blind-sided. Don’t become a victim of Common Core tunnel vision. Below is a brief summary of a few of the major points that have been brought out by Anita Hoge and others regarding the the real issues. This information should be investigated in each and every state. Parents and citizens need to go beyond the simple “anti-Common Core” rhetoric and learn these other facts.
