Common core continues to indoctrinate the young, with bogus history


Afraid to teach children, their actual Rights, and instead interpreting it wrongly...

quote:

United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination:


The Second Amendment: The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.

The Americans (history textbook):


The Second and Third Amendments – grant citizens the right to bear arms as members of a militia of citizen-soldiers and prevent the government from housing troops in private homes in peacetime.


In Bryant, Arkansas the following “assignment” was handed out to sixth graders



I know it’s a little fuzzy so I’ll highlight the important bits.


“The Government of the United States is currently revisiting The Bill of Rights. They have determined that it is outdated and may not remain in its current form any longer.”

It then goes on to tell the kids, that basically, a poll is being taken to see what can be cut out of the Bill of Rights. It even leads them into thinking that they are participating in a task force called the National Revised Bill of Rights Task Force.


“Your task as a member of the NRBR Task Force is to prioritize, revise, prune two and add two amendments to The Bill of Rights.”

The kids assignment was to cut the Bill of Rights, one of the most important and defining documents in human history, like a drunken plastic surgeon and add LOL’s and emoticons to it so it can be less “outdated.”

Since when is liberty EVER outdated?

Here’s the best part though, after parents complained it came to light that the students hadn’t been taught ANYTHING about how ratifying the Constitution works. They weren’t taught how government actually works but bamboozled into thinking that the Bill of Rights could be easily discarded by some “task force” for being viewed as outdated.

Sadly, that's being done in a less direct way for some.. with the IRS and NSA targeting...

Common Core is the worst thing to happen to schools. It is pure propaganda and indoctrination.

I don't mind a set of standards being applied in schools, and basic criteria that kids must learn, but the books should state facts as they are written, not give biased opinions or interpretations.

Not saying it's untrue, but there's no real way to confirm that this report is accurate.

That is not common core. That is an idiot teachers selection of materials. The "common core" is a set of standards and there are nothing but literacy standards in science and social studies. Whomever chose that is either a liberal or an idiot.

You cant see the big picture

Once CC is adopted and accepted, then the 'indoctrination' can begin. The chosen materials can then be passed down to all the states, rather than the tiresome chore of having to write textbooks that have to pass muster in each state, as it now stands

Since you're black, the new government rules grant you the power to do this. Sorry Alahunter, but bhp's ruling is legit.

I am very familiar with the big picture but this kind of crap hurts the cause more than helps. There are enough concerns without resorting to cherry picking asinine examples of resources.

AP Is not common core. In fact it is a curriculum produced by The College Board. The text in question is a prep book for AP exams taken in high school

If knowledge is power then what is controlling education? I'm not sure the context of this, but this allegedly comes from a common core developed history book.

Comments from a teaching website....

quote:

The Common Core presents a great opportunity to inspire teachers to teach history as an investigative process instead of something to memorize


What does the common core do about American history?

quote:

It allows teachers to teach history based on their feelings rather that the actual memorizing of dates and facts. It allows for teachers to place in history things which were not there in the original facts.


Common Core is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that was formed to promote content-rich liberal arts education in America’s K–12 schools.

quote:

CC assists teachers in helping the public move beyond understanding history as merely facts to be covered. Factual information is central to reading and writing about the past, but too often the public’s understanding of history stops with facts. Using the CC as justification for an expanded focus on reading and writing enables history teachers to devote extensive class time to the historical habits of mind that a study of the past fosters. Expanding on the CC’s cursory references to interpretation, primary and secondary sources, and the use of evidence, teachers can help their students recognize the importance of identifying the author, intended audience, and context in which these sources were created. Instead of allowing students to read for the sole purpose of finding an answer, history teachers can use the CC to launch discussions about corroborating sources, evaluating authors’ claims and use of evidence, and determining instances of ambiguity in texts.


It's all about indoctrination of ideas from the progressive stand point.

I am keenly aware of what AP is.
I am keenly aware of what common core is.
The point being, validity of the OP citing was questioned even though a photo was provided. Insinuation being no one could be so stupid as to include that BS in public school teaching materials. Yet the same IDIOTIC quote appears verbatim in other published teaching materials.

That's all fine and dandy, but when agenda driven, rewritten history books are on the CC list of ok textbooks, it destroys what accurate history is and becomes indoctrination to certain ideas and platforms.
