The NEA after receiving $3,882,600 from the Gates Foundation, flipped and now supports Common Core Standards.
Yet the NEA’s own survey shows that only 26% of teachers wholeheartedly support Common Core.
How can they get away with lying you may skeptically ask?
Because there was also a second option. Would you support Common Core if the changes were made that you think it requires? 50 percent.
Add the two together and you can say that… 76% of teachers support Common Core… (just omit that 50% of those said it needs changed before they’d line up behind it).
The truth however…. 100% – 26%… is that 74% of teachers do not solidly or wholeheartedly approve of Common Core!….
From 74% against to “overwhelming support for”… ???
That’s what $3,882,600 will buy you…..
