* cooperative learning hasn't worked
* standardized testing hasn't improved learning
* class grouping strategies promote dependency
* wholistic learning was a flop.

Common Core will also be an expensive piece of rubbish.

Not only is government trying to force propaganda and socialist controlled education system to destroy our right to freedom of speech. People are fighting to keep government propaganda out of education so we can have free speech and free will, the socialist novelist in news media is violating their legal duty as independent and freedom of speech advocates.

This common core systems is government mandated education to destroy our constitutional rights and freedoms. Common core is government documents taught to chidlren and then testing to insure that education outside these government documents are not being taught to the future leaders of America. Common core is controlling subject matter and content for government mandates of expected citizens responsibility to government. Brainwashing children to believe that our rights and freedoms are wrong is not freedom of will and freedom of thought and freedom of choice.

Our education system has worked very well and as it should without government testing and it is why our democracy and government does work as a free nation. If government gets absolute control of education, we lose our nation as a free America and become a slave nation to dictators and hard core Marxist socialism.

There are two kinds of education: Education and brainwashing.

Unfortunately some of our posters here have been victims of the second kind and now want to impose it upon the rest of us.

People who care will stand up and support Common Core.

I care, but don't support Common Core.

Hmm! Half our people on welfare. Half or more of our doctors, engineers, and chemist are from other countries. Our automobile engines and transmissions are designed by foreigners.

None of our educational strategies have worked, yet you believe Common Core will? How many times do we get kicked before we learn?

People who care will stand up and reject Common Core.
