Our school system has abdicated its responsibility to educate and has implemented its agenda to indoctrinate. Sarah Knapp, a Union co-chair and teacher of high school economics and government said this, “Marxism is the politics of hope; it argues that learning is a social phenomenon and that the thirst for it is deepest when it serves the cause of liberation as it does when it is connected to the movements for social equality, justice and power. We have to envision the concept of education more broadly than it is defined today.” This attitude is very common within the leadership of the teachers unions.
Common Core is a tool of the left to indoctrinate our youth and to dictate to them early in their education experience exactly what role they will play for the good of the state. Common core clearly uses examples that indoctrinate our children in so called social justice or in reality Marxism. Common Core is also based on the principle of learning answers and not learning to think.
We must remember who originated Common Core. Linda Darling Hammond and Bill Ayers were very instrumental in the development. Linda Darling Hammond is the author of books advocating teaching social justice in our schools. Bill Ayers, a friend of Obama’s and of Linda Darling Hammond is a known terrorist who said his biggest regret was that the bombs he placed did not cause more damage. Both of these people advocated using the concepts of Lev Vygotsky who was a student of Hegel and Marx. Vygotsky was in charge of the manpower and education program for Stalin. This was the program that determined very early in the education of a child what his work role would be in Soviet society.
Common Core is a danger to a free capitalist society and every Freedom Loving American should thoroughly investigate all elements of Common Core: is the purpose to educate or indoctrinate?
