Seriously, how is it anti white? Our CC aligned tests were harder than the ones they replaced, but they were fair tests.

Now, maybe other states are not like NY. I can only report what's happening here in NY state.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 49164253

In my district, they're rolling out CC to predominately white classes first. Anyone who is in a special class - learning/behavioral problems or "English Language Learners" - aren't getting CC yet.

That means, in effect, the only people being subjected to it are "mainstream" white kids.

The teachers don't even know what they're supposed to do with CC. One subject was rolled out at the start of the year, and another is being introduced mid-January. But teachers are supposed to "get ready" for the mid-year CC curriculum...that they hadn't seen yet. How does a teacher plan her subject without know what she should be planning for?

Re: Arne Duncan: ‘White suburban moms’ upset that Common Core shows their kids aren’t ‘brilliant’
But Chicago Public Schools (CPS) policies are not really about Duncan or his successor. The biggest threat to finally achieving equitable and quality education in Chicago's low-income African American and Latino/a schools is not the individual who carries out the policy but a system of mayoral control and corporate power that locks out democracy. The impact of those policies includes thousands of children displaced by school closings, spiked violence as they transferred to other schools, and the deterioration of public education in many neighborhoods into a crisis situation.

 Quoting: Chrit

They're getting what they want. A poor, ignorant, easily amused and extremely racist population. By turning everyone against each other and making everyone a villain, it will be that much easier to grab more power.

The entire country is about to go the way of Cook County.
 Quoting: ssle


The way to turn blacks and whites against each other is integration. Segragation allows each to have an appropriate environment and the normal good wishes for others can exist where there is no conflict because the schools are separate.

Re: Arne Duncan: ‘White suburban moms’ upset that Common Core shows their kids aren’t ‘brilliant’
The real problem with the common core curriculum is that it encourages schools to teach to the bottom of the classes rather than the top.

Generally, any subject, including all the common core items, can be taught at many levels.

It is up to the school leaders - the principal and the district to decide to teach to the top and pull up the other students.

Only they can set an academic tone of excellence and achievement.

Parents need to start pressuring their local schools to begin to teach to the top of the class and work with those who need to get there.

On the other hand, yes....far too many parents really do think their kids are way smarter and far more talented at anything than they really are.

Comes from praising every little mediocre thing the kid does as if he was finding the cure for cancer.

Of course children need to be praised for their efforts, but we really have gone overboard with things like kindergarden graduations and gifts for every passing grade even if it is a D.

Duncan is right but so are the parents in that they do not want the classes dumbed down to the lowest level of work to accodate a few who need help to keep up.

A lot of people cheering for Duncan don't have a clue what Common Core is about. It DUMBS DOWN education to the point that kids will not be able to think for themselves.

The kids who put down the right or the logical answers are going to get those answers wrong because those answers don't fit the "agenda" of common core.

#1 The US education system is woefully outdated. Most of the classes students must take in high school are inadequate for the world economical/political systems.

#2 For almost ANY standardized test, all you need to be able to do is READ and THINK! They aren't really that hard IF you know how they're written and scored.

As a high school teacher in an urban school, I can tell you that today's average students absolutely hate to think. They want everything spoon fed and explained to them like they were babies.

There are exceptions to every rule. There are students that no teacher can stop. But they are few and far between.

Most students are already mass consumers with no independent thought processes.

Sure comrade we hear ya.


Snip; New York City teachers recently received their new Common Core-approved textbooks — a month late — and they don’t like them one bit.

They are loaded with errors,” said Rebecca Murphy a third-grade teacher in Queens, in a statement to the New York Daily News.

The mistakes are numerous. A third-grade workbook contains a set of questions accompanying a mismatched reading selection; one of the pages in another workbook is printed upside down; and some teacher’s manuals don’t line up with student versions.


Snip2; Pearson’s products have been heavily criticized for incomprehensibility. A first-grade math test was recently scrutinized for asking kids conceptually odd questions that would stump calculus students.

And a lesson on possessive nouns contained Orwellian statements about the relationship between the individual and government, such as “The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all,” and “An individual’s wants are less important than the nation’s well-being.”

Dont blame Obama. Those of us with genuinely "gifted" kids have been concerned about the dumbing down since the eighties.

If you took the sats in the early eighties, you scored higher than a kid with the sale score in the late eighties. Somewhere in there they dumbed down the sats.

Gifted education is a joke. Americans are very reluctant to find programs or even offer real support to those they perceive as already more advantaged. Even the word "gifted" shows a bias. A gift is a benefit you have not earned. Why help the "gifted"? (because they are just our smart kids, not unfairly advantaged kids, and because we have to import brains from china and india if we want doctors and engineers). Oh, arent all our children uniquely gifted? Yeah, maybe, but lets try to educate the smart ones at least as well as third world kids, huh?

Americans think paying taxes for a especial program for a kid smarter than their kid is undemocratic. So to get Americans to maybe find their own public schools they have to tell each and every parent their child is at the top of the heap.

This makes me too mad to be coherent. Sorry. Im just glad I got mine raised. We cant all be unique because thats an oxymoran. Half of us are below average. It will always be that way.

We did to education what castro did to wealth. Castro improved the situation of the poor then made everybody poor. We decided to improve the education of the retarded and now we are all retarded.

Some school systems pushing the International Baccalaureate program on their above average kids. All that does is pack smart kids heads full of useless shit they don't need. Common core and IB are both complete NWO, brainwash, screw up your kids bullshit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33863384


Agree on IB.

Smart kids should get thru the regular curriculum faster and on to college material. They have high IQ. Their mental age is greater than their physical age. They are ready for college material young.

Not a lot of other stuff meant to waste their time and keep them busy.

If they're good at math, they should be doing the standard math training. Mathematicians have decided what proper math training is. It's called the undergrad math major curriculum. These kids should be doing that not something else.

Same for other fields.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 49164253


I have 4 kids. One of them, the youngest is considered 'highly gifted'- scoring above 99.5% nationally.

Where we live, she has been put into a self-accelerated program where she goes as fast as she can and wants to. She is 3rd grade and doing algebra, reading the same materials as my 8th grader.

This sort of programming would be beneficial for all kids- where one has talents they should be encouraged to keep going and not have to 'keep pace' with average.

I am also surprised how many communities don't have these 'gifted learner' programs.

Omg. I love you. LOL

I have 4- 1 above average, 2 average and one RIDICULOUSLY gifted.

My 2 'average' kids needed special services when they were young- my son was born prematurely and he was unable to see. He was in 1st grade before he could start learning to read because he was undergoing so many visual surgeries. My daughter when she was 8 suffered with seizures due to a mass in her frontal lobe. The medication that she was put on saved her life (thank God), but, it caused her brain to 'freeze'. She was unable to learn or remember anything. She barely stayed awake.

Now, both of them are 'average' kids and are doing very well, thankfully. But, I completely understand how crazy people can be- they want to spend the money to make the children with challenges feel 'normal' and I support that....

But, the child that just 'knows' everything naturally- that child can change the future, cure cancer, whatever.

Having had kids on all ends of the spectrum, I understand it is an emotional issue and it is difficult for one to accept that there are others more talented than their child.

btw, our local program went from 'gifted' to 'gifted and talented'- because of complaints. LOL

Re: Arne Duncan: ‘White suburban moms’ upset that Common Core shows their kids aren’t ‘brilliant’
True.
Most mothers think their little idiot is the smartest child in the universe.
In reality all children are slowly becoming dumber and dumber, whilst the government keeps up the illusion that they are bright kids.
In O'Bummer world,no kid gets left behind, because they are all as dumb as each other.
A consensus of morans.

And this is also why they want to kill off all the older generation, because they are really the only ones left that have witnessed first hand, the fall of AmeriKa. From the communist infiltration in the 60's, all the way up to it's final fruition, with a maggot communist Muslim in the White House.

They want a population that doesn't know what the hell happened, and don't know any different than total control, and a continually worsening raping of their rights.

And with the hell-bound "elites" getting the very best REAL educations, eating the very best organic poison free food, and pure water brought in from Antarctica, while you and your kids get fluoride, chlorine, and sugar to drink, with every imaginable witches brew of other toxins as well.

And they get to eat completely nutritionally devoid "food", with every imaginable toxic "additive" and pesticide, chewed with Mercury filled teeth. And they are pumped full of toxic vaccines that the "elite" will NEVER take themselves.

This is why these demons live so long. They have all of the life-extension knowledge, and the wealth to put it into action, while they simultaneously squeeze you for every remaining drop of wealth that you may have had, so that you cannot AFFORD good, decent food, and supplements.

So the "elites" do not face the extreme disadvantage of having theirs minds dulled into perpetual fog, the way that the average "lowly" citizen does. That is why they live so long, and are able to orchestrate this massive network of evil and deceit. They are energized and "illuminated" by the m,aster deceiver himself.

But the good news, is that they ALL know that they have but a short time. Their NWO is doomed to live for a very short time indeed. All of those centuries of building, will be torn down in ONE short season. And they will have forfeited their chance for a REAL hope. THE hope, of mankind.

But that's not the only thing they will face. Nooo... They will also face the repercussions for EVERY SINGLE ONE of their evil deeds. It's scary to even contemplate being in the shoes of this putrid scum, when they stand before God, in judgment.

Maybe white suburban schools aren't as good as some people think they are.

They are certainly better then the inner city nagger nest schools and that's the only reason this dumb bitch has a problem. She wants everyone educated and behaving like the average inner city pavement ape.

Dont blame Obama. Those of us with genuinely "gifted" kids have been concerned about the dumbing down since the eighties.

If you took the sats in the early eighties, you scored higher than a kid with the sale score in the late eighties. Somewhere in there they dumbed down the sats.

Gifted education is a joke. Americans are very reluctant to find programs or even offer real support to those they perceive as already more advantaged. Even the word "gifted" shows a bias. A gift is a benefit you have not earned. Why help the "gifted"? (because they are just our smart kids, not unfairly advantaged kids, and because we have to import brains from china and india if we want doctors and engineers). Oh, arent all our children uniquely gifted? Yeah, maybe, but lets try to educate the smart ones at least as well as third world kids, huh?

Americans think paying taxes for a especial program for a kid smarter than their kid is undemocratic. So to get Americans to maybe find their own public schools they have to tell each and every parent their child is at the top of the heap.

This makes me too mad to be coherent. Sorry. Im just glad I got mine raised. We cant all be unique because thats an oxymoran. Half of us are below average. It will always be that way.

We did to education what castro did to wealth. Castro improved the situation of the poor then made everybody poor. We decided to improve the education of the retarded and now we are all retarded. The fundamental problem Is Americans wont pay to éducate some bright kid competing with their average darling. Thats how we get dumbed down.

I gave you a gift, now how about going back and watching it?
Others here have given their gifts.

I shouldn't be paying one cent for your stupidity and being forced to pay for an education system designed to destroy our nation.

You had kids, you pay for them, you hire a private tutor and give them a worthwhile education. Free the teachers themselves to teach to their own level of compentency, and to succeed as their skills and supposed education is supposed to have prepared them to be able to do. Instead of robbing childern of life, teachers of their value, and ending up with a society of sheep.

You have no idea what you're even talking about. Supporting the current education system is virtually supporting the enforced retardation of childern.
