This just came in… This is exactly what we have been talking about… Stay to the part about the test… Listen… And you will finally understand why those of us who are parents, are against Common Core…

It dumbs our children… there is no other way to put it… It dumbs our children……

So, I ask, you who are in the middle, and hear things from both sides…. On one hand you have an actual parent, with an actual Common Core problem… and on the other hand…. you get this….. (thanks John)…

Just the intro music gives it’s fakeness away… Do,do,do,do,do,do,do,do,do, and a bass line boom,be,boom,be,boom,be…be.be,be, boom…

Now listen to what they say… What are they saying about Common Core that is different from just teaching? What they are discussing is simple teaching… They do not say anything about the tests…

Common Core is about the tests. It is only about the tests… Those same tests that failed 70% of New York’s students! Failed 70% of Kentucky’s students. Will fail over 50% of Delaware’s students….

So why would these people support Common Core? Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do… Boom, be, boom, be, boom,… be boom….

Well for one, all these teachers just won $10,000!!! And the guy who just gave you $10,000 says, hey! we’re shooting a video to commemorate this, Can you stick around afterwards for a few moments? You say sure…. and do about 10 questions before a big camera and go home… How were you supposed to know only the questions on Common Core would get YouTube’d?….

Which brings up the circular argument… If you reward someone who is a cheerleader for Common Core, then make a video of all the winners, just after they were paid $10,000 for being Common Core supporters….. Aren’t you going to have a film a little biased towards common core?

But listen to the weakness of their support. And compare that to the anger of the mom from Arkansas… In fact the only support we have EVER received in this state, is tepid, as if someone asked you about some dude named Kilroy, and you don’t really know him so you say, “oh man, he’s a great guy. Awesome really.. Yeah. Just great. Pretty good too. Yeah.”

That is the only endorsement for Common Core… Compare that to the prosecution’s argument against Common Core in the first video above… And this time… stay long enough to hear the test question on the test….

Really!… Common Core is ABOUT the test….. No matter how many times you try to spin it with the words “awesome”, “great”,and “pretty good.”…. if you get marked on the test wrong, and you answered it right… no child is going to get better with Common Core!
