THE MORNING SHOW
Debra Lamm, MBA
Common Core Must Be Stopped!
You have most probably seen a few headlines in the news and on the internet about the new educational standards called Common Core. “Common Core”…it sounds nice; has a nice ring to it. What could possibly be wrong with something that sounds so good?
Debra Lamm joined us this morning with the answers. After seeing a presentation she gave, we were quite dumbfounded by the answers and felt compelled to share the information. Please consider passing this podcast along to those, especially with school aged children. As Debra stated so eloquently in this interview, “If we don’t stand on our principles now, there may not be another opportunity.”
-What is Common Core?
-Indoctrinating children on a federal level to be managed as human capital in the global market place.
-Raising children and teaching values: Is it the job of the parents or the government?
-The philosophy of John Dewey
-Pitting children against their parents
-What exactly is computer adaptive testing?
-Bill Gates: The biggest funder behind Common Core. Are we shocked?
-Who wrote the standards?
-Where do big corporations like Exxon Mobil fit in?
-Data collection without parental consent
and so much more!!
