Does anyone know what Common Core State Standards are? Not many people know what it is. What was written in the Tri-City Herald was a whitewash. Common Core has a sinister side. Nationalization of education does not work. It was tried in totalitarian regimes. The intent of Common Core is to dumb down the education of the children.
There is much more evidence of the darkside of Common Core, which can also lead to identity theft by data-mining your children to get your private information. For those who don't know what the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is, it is part of the Privacy Act of 1974 and it was changed by the federal government to mine that data.
