Common Core is part of the UN's infamous Agenda 21. A website called “AreWeAwareYet” has a good overview and links, but here’s a short introduction:
And from Eagar’s linked website:
The goal is to bring all educational standards under one common roof of compliance and global academic, philosophical and religious sameness. That requires r of fundamentalist and evangelical religion, including those religions that have strong missionary outreaches to non-Christians and that teach the biblical principles of marriage and the sanctity of Life. In order to do that, certain compromises must be made, and this is the essence of the Common Core curriculum.
The curriculum must be strictly secular and equitable in its teaching of the nations and the world. Redistribution of the wealth is the standard because there is no private property, only collective ownership of the planet. Therefore, the common core curriculum must take a pantheistic approach and while excluding one form of extremism (e.g. radical Islam) it embraces another: extremist environmental policy.
Common Core is already here, but there is a way to stop it in Ohio. Representative Andy Thompson is sponsoring a bill in the Ohio House:
A BILL “To enact section 3301.078 of the Revised Code with respect to the Common Core initiative academic standards and the distribution of student data.” Full Bill Text here
This bill is scheduled to be filed with the House Clerk on July 25 – this coming week. Last week, Ohioans Against Common Core announced Action Alerts. Their suggested phone calls for requesting co-sponsorship of the bill in the House are to:
