Has "Common Core" been implemented in your State?

Common Core education teaches that global warming is 'man made' and that the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution is:

"Amendment 2 (1791) Right to Bear Arms: This amendment states that people have the right to certain weapons, providing that they register them and providing they have not been in prison. The founding fathers included this amendment to prevent the United States from acting like the British who had tired to take weapons away from the colonists."


American History books have changed too:

The government education system is drastically changing the history that is being taught our children in schools today.

    I had heard it is implemented in something like 37 states, with many of the rest in the process of implementing it. Thank you Bill Gates you tyrannical one world government f-k.

    My son is struggling in his 5th grade advanced math right now because the "common core" crap the teacher is adhering to states she has to be at a certain point by the end of the year. She could care less if they don't get in class,...she just bulldozes her way through. The sad part is that she never even attempted to act differently during "American education week" when I and other parents were in the classroom.[V] I talk to some teachers outside of school who absolutely hate the curriculum.

    That characterization of the 2nd Amendment pretty much reflects what the SCOTUS interpreted it to mean.

    Socialist democrats own most of education, especially in the cities.
    It should surprise no one of incorporation of their anti constitutional ideology in their teachings.

    As a parent, I would refuse to allow any of my children to step foot in such an indoctrination center. Private or homeschooling would be my choice.

    The teachers I have spoken to do not like the concept.

    Apparently it does not bother them enough to be vocal about it.

    BTW....I do get to read their materials and make my own corrections to the GLARING errors I see.

    The bad... School taxes out of control and Common Core implemented.

    The good... School district has decided to dump CC. So we seem to be going from indoctrination to semi-education. Not great, but better than I expected.

    There is only one solution to this, and it happens to be the same solution to dealing with all of the progressive agenda, we just have to work ourselves to it.

    I have people wonder my I pay the money to have my 14 yo son in a private Christen school.

    I have 5 children ranging in ages from 43 to 14. The oldest has her CCW. The 2nd has a stainless Smith 38 I bought for her. The 3rd doesn't worry about having her own gun as my son-in-law is in the NG and has plenty of personal weapons. My 4th loves shooting and fishing. She just got her own 870 20 gauge in pink camo and loves it. My 14 yo son loves shooting, went on his first deer hunt when he was 4, (I have a great pic of Uri sound asleep on the forest floor), got his first deer when he was 13.

    OK! I have done my part. What have you done![:D]

    I put over $10,000 per year into private schools for my daughters just so we don't have to worry about this CC crap as well as getting them out of the poor quality of education in this area, 8 years down, 8 to go

    Common core is a set of standards. Each curriculum publisher creates textbooks that meet the standards. To say that common core teaches the second amendment incorrectly is just wrong. A publisher may explain their own interpretation of the second amendment but it is not common core.

    My wife is a teacher and she says that common core requires the students to think more instead of just choosing from multiple choice. Her last section in history, she taught in a style similar to common core. To her surprise, the class that she thought would embrace it fought it. The class that she thought would fight it embraced it. Across the board, ALL classes had significantly higher test scores.

    She said that it allows teachers a lot more flexibility to teach. What she doesn't like is the way they hold schools accountable based on a single evaluation test at the end of year. A lot of people think that it was politicians that wrote common core but it was actually a group of educators.

    Ultimately, the government is always going to be involved in the public school system. The only way to avoid having the government involved in your child's education is to home school or put your kids in private school. Obviously, not everybody can do either of those.

    Sorry, but I beg to disagree. Common Core does not teach how to think. It, in fact, teaches what to think. The difference is profound.

    Education supplies a student with facts and encourages the student to think. Common Core indoctrinates a student and teaches what to think.

    Then you don't understand it. I just looked at a sample with my wife. The section regarding the Bill of Rights says to read and analyze historical documents.

    How does that teach them what to think? I'm welcome to looking at facts that you have. Not published's curriculum but actual standards from Common Core.

    I never said that public school is good. If my wife and I ever have kids, there is no way that we are putting them in public school. But that is not what we are discussing. We are discussing common core. And to that regard, the way common core is intended, it makes the students think more. How it is implemented or the curriculum the schools choose to use (and the agendas behind it) is totally different. The way my wife would implement common core in her classroom would make textbooks completely unnecessary.

    I am still waiting for anybody to show me in the common core standards where they screw up the second amendment. I doubt you'll find it. The problems you guys are finding is the curriculum of publishers. It is not put out by any government entity. Each school chooses their own curriculum from a publisher of their choosing.

    I had an email with a photo shot of the common core book concerning the bill of rights, I tried to copy and post but it wouldn't work. The initial post has what was printed.

    and for everyone reading and education, here is some history about common core:

    What you had was most likely a photo from a book that a publisher put out. Common core does not give the information for each standard. Go to the common core website and type in "bill of rights" and see what it has.

    ADDED: I did it for you. One result: http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/RI/11-12/9/

    That is the only result. If you search "second amendment" it turns up no results.
