Ok, I’ve been rather vocal about the underhanded double-talk and lies that Arne and the corporate goons (sounds like a new band–a band that sucks) are using to sell Common Core, but this one really takes the cake.
Talk now is of changing the name, or “rebranding” as Governor Rick Scott in Florida referred to it. Arizona did it–Common Core’s new name tag is the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards. Arkansas is talking about it as well. After all, Common Core has gotten a bad rap and there are “misconceptions” about it, causing people to reject it when they should be embracing it.
Really?! THAT’S what state leadership is spending taxpayer dollars to accomplish? THAT’S the big concern? Creating MORE deception?
You rebrand a product. You don’t rebrand an educational “reform” effort that seriously damages children and education.
You don’t rebrand something that is being used to divide this country and tighten the federal noose around our necks.
You don’t rebrand something that causes so much stress children are physically ill because of it.
You don’t rebrand something that began in the shadows and is now a soup of lies being dumped on the children and educators of this nation while a few elite are counting their money all the way to the bank…and laughing.
You refuse it, you change it, you reject it, but you DON’T rebrand it.
Changing the name perpetuates the deception Common Core is infested with, and undermines the intelligence of the parents,
children and educators in America. It’s shallow,evil and it ticks me off.
I really hope you guys are paying attention, because Arne and the corporate goons think we all are stupid.
Are you willing to sit by and watch this happen?
I’m not. I hope you’ll join me in the battle, because it’s a fight well worth fighting.
