Common Core also has data mining
Schools have already added Iris scanners for students to use, and also tracking ID cards students have to keep on them. As well as knowing what your religion is, what political views you have, are you gay and other very personal irrelevant information and other intrusive questions. It also inserts political views and ideologies into test and assignment questions and word problems. Global warming, presidential executives orders, rewording and changing the meaning to things like amendments in the constitution. It leaves the bureaucrats in Washington and the federal government in total control to dictate how what gets taught in schools on an unproven experimental program that comes with a hefty price tag for its uniform standard cookie cutter one size fits all approach to education, killing teacher flexibility and specialized education for individual students. Because common core is for primary school, once you enter high school, the learning curve will be steeper than it ever was before when you have to forgot common core, and do things the old way that is still used in high school, that you would have learned in primary school to begin with before common cores creation.
Initially common core was touted as being this super effective form of teaching that proved highly successful over seas, but they had to recant those claims when people here began to review it and research the claims. Then the federal government said they would not give federal funding to states that did not accept common core, forcing them to accept it if they wanted funding.
If you do not know why one of the pics is considered bad, let me know and I will explain.
I know mothers who are pulling their kids out of school right and left and looking for ways to home-school them because of ^THIS BULLSHIT.
Pardon my French.
But this is bullshit.
Excuse my language, but what the actual fuck is this? What in God’s name are these people doing, and how are they getting away with this shit?
Besides everything stated above, we have to recognize how a student’s needs differ in each state. The three primary job types in my state (Louisiana) are Industrial, Agriculture, and Petroleum. Grade school should be preparing kids for their futures. For a kid in Louisiana, their future is most likely some form of using tools. Obviously everyone should have a well-rounded educational foundation, but by the time someone gets to high school they need to be learning relevant things. Most kids in my state are not going to go to college. That’s nothing to be ashamed of. We need more roustabouts than petroleum engineers out on those platforms. We need more farmers than people designing new tractors. We need more welders and other factory jobs than we need managers. Going to college is great, but let’s stop pretending that everyone needs to get a college preparatory degree to have a successful future.
Over the past 10 years my town has eliminated almost all “industrial arts” electives from the high schools as their budgeting has gone to “help” students meet ridiculous standards set by the federal government. Businesses won’t hire Louisiana graduates straight out of high school because they don’t know anything useful.
A kid in Louisiana who is going to work on a sugar cane farm needs a totally different skill set than someone who is working in a coal mine in Virginia, and we should be preparing kids for these jobs.
Basically this has been a poorly worded rant by a very sleepy Haley about why common core is bullshit and isn’t good for kids not going to college.
Jesus Christ, I have a feeling I’m going to be arguing with the boys’ teachers just as much as I argued with mine. It never ends.
