The Common Core Story

The Common Core Story

“Our schools have been quietly taken over. We are no longer teaching the skills and concepts that our kids need for the complex, unpredictable 21st century; we are increasingly teaching the skills that billionaires want their workforces to have in order to boost their profits. Gone are the days of creativity, innovation, personal growth, teamwork, and dreams; here are the days of nationalized pigeonholing, segregation and dysfunction. It used to be that in America you could be whatever you dreamed you could be and you were allowed to change your mind if your dreams led you in a new direction. In the near future, kids will be allowed to be whatever their Pearson test score says they’re qualified to be, and nothing more, unless we, their loving parents and teachers, stand up and fight for our children and our schools.”

Kris Neilsen, author of Children of the Core
