Is there an ideological bent embedded within the Common Core State Standards? Take a few minutes to watch this video which demonstrates the focus found in the English/Language Arts Informational Texts for elementary school children. “Voices” is the title and series of the recommended Common Core ELA textbooks and Informational Texts. The series appears to focus on “social justice” themes and includes a “call to action” in every text.
Michelle Malkin’s article “Who is Tracking our Children” should raise a huge red flag of distress to each and every parent in this country. This is downright invasion of privacy and deliberate abuse of companies against children and parental rights. And a stepping stone to cutting out parental say in education.
Governments spying, lying and conspiring against its citizens seems like a fantastic action movie for Hollywood. But this is no longer Hollywood, nor is it a motion picture. Today, this is real, and it’s even in our schools plaguing our children through many tools.
Technology: Under Common Core Standards certainly comes at a hefty price to privacy and parental rights. With schools coming under severe scrutiny because of RFID chips in ID badges and most recently, iris scans of children without parental consent, we have to ask who is really watching out for the best interest of our children when they are in school. Even the US Dept of Education’s Grit Report from February 2013 has listed sensors that will monitor our children including but most certainly not limited to Facial Expression Cameras, Posture Analysis Seats, Pressure Mouse, and a Wireless Skin Conductance Sensor .
Data mining: What is done with the information, who has access to it, and how long can these companies and/or our government hang onto and use this information against us? One must ask why do we need to collect all these data points, and why from children. One word comes to mind: Control. Someone has decided that in order to “Control” our children, they need to know every single aspect of their lives, their parents’ lives in order to “Control” every piece of every person’s lives. This is not the workings of a free society. Our educational rights as parents are quickly dwindling away with Common Core. If we wish to have any say in our children’s educations, we need to understand Common Core and Data mining and we need to inform all parents, school boards, legislators, and the media of these heinous and criminal acts against our children, us and our nation’s future in the world.

Yes, once just part of a creepy movie with Tom Cruise, now part of public school.
