The Truth Will Come Out

Finally "they" are divulging what we education researchers have known all along and tried to expose! Here is their agenda, spelled out -- notice that it ends in "choice"! I hope this blog post goes viral. These tax-exempt foundation groups with agendas MUST be exposed!

Common Core supporters have struggled to counter the critics.

Below are excerpts from the article at "For right, Common Core fight prelude to bigger agenda," by Stephanie Simon, posted on 1/7/14:
National advocacy groups powered by the Koch brothers and other conservative megadonors have found a new cause ripe with political promise: the fight to bring down the Common Core academic standards.
The article continues below by describing their agenda, spelled out in detail. I reformatted this paragraph and added bold to emphasize the points in the agenda:
A draft action plan by the advocacy group FreedomWorks lays out the effort as a series of stepping stones: 
  • First, mobilize to strike down the Common Core
  • Then push to expand school choice by offering parents tax credits or 
  • vouchers to help pay tuition at private and religious schools. 
  • Next, rally the troops to abolish the U.S. Department of Education
  • Then it’s on to eliminating teacher tenure.
“This is going to be a huge campaign,” said Whitney Neal, the group’s director of grass-roots activism. She plans to kick it off within weeks with a series of videos that will “connect the dots” between killing Common Core and enacting other conservative priorities.
The campaign will build to a march on Washington this summer, perhaps in partnership with radio host Glenn Beck. “This is definitely an institutional priority for us in 2014,” she said. “We’re putting a lot of time and resources into it.”
Resume the Reece Committee Investigation of the Tax Exempt Foundations! Bring back a Norman Dodd to lead the American people in this battle.
