Common Core standards dangerous

Illinois must op out of Common Core for the sake of children. While everyone has heard about Obamacare as a botched government program, this is not the case with Common Core, a United Nations UNESCO global education agenda.

The Tides Foundation, in conjunction with UNESCO and Bill Gates of Microsoft, had Common Core prepared prior to Obama's election. The funding for Common Core was incorporated into the stimulus bill of 2009 without the knowledge or consent of Congress.

Most telling is that Arne Duncan, Obama's Secretary of Education, is a strong proponent of UNESCO. With Common Core curriculum, students will no longer be taught math, literature, history, science or social studies the same way we were taught. Most disturbing is that the progressive movement will flourish through the indoctrination of students lured into accepting an extreme leftist ideology.

Vladimir Lenin, a notorious Russian communist, knew the power of controlling schools and once said "Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted."

Get involved. Know how and what children are learning in your school district. Don't allow expensive ads falsely promoting what Common Core is all about to fool you.
