This article shows that objections to Common Core standards are not just a pet peeve of the "conservatives/republicans. It is clearly a means of socializing even further the role of public education in this country. It is a data mining project, aiming at ultimately creating little yes men/women and order following drones of our children, and ultimately creating a society that is brainwashed to follow, not lead.
The following quote sums up rather well what good intentions, (which Common Core was never meant to be), lead to. The destruction of people to think for themselves, problem solve and unapologetically succeed.
"The more any quantitative social indicator is used for social decision-making, the more subject it will be to corruption pressures and the more apt it will be to distort and corrupt the social processes it is intended to monitor."
- Donald Campbell
