Common Core is a federal takeover of the public education system, where a single set of learning standards is intended to replace each state’s curriculum. The standards were designed by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. Forty-five states have adopted the standards.

CommonCore

There are many problems with Common Core. Here’s one: Common Core reading materials are designed to “groom” young people and leave them vulnerable to molestation and sexual abuse.

“Grooming” is the process by which a predator desensitizes a young person to sexual contact. A predator who is in a position of authority, such as a coach, teacher or counselor, uses his position to befriend a child and eventually to abuse that child. One of the steps in grooming is to expose the young person to graphic sexual material such as pornographic photos, stories, and movies. When the child is used to the idea that “everyone does” these sexual acts, the predator has his victim prepared and ready for molestation.

The Common Core reading materials are filled with graphic pornography cloaked as literature. The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison, is what your teen will be forced to read if your school accepts Common Core. The story includes descriptions of child rape, incest, and molestation. The pedophile in the novel is portrayed with sympathy and Morrison reportedly wrote the story so the reader becomes a “co-conspirator” with the predator.

The book Monster by Walter Dean Myers includes a description of a homosexual gang rape and the use of a butt plug. In New York, a Common Core education portal encourages teens to visit a pornographic sex survey site where they are asked if they want to participate in a threesome or a gang-bang, among other acts.

The novel Black Swan Green features a 13-year-old boy who graphically describes his father’s genitals and then a sex act. Dreaming in Cuban contains teen sadomasochism. In Kansas, a father discovered a Common Core poster in his daughter’s class titled “How Do People Express Their Sexual Feelings?” with items such as “anal sex,” “masturbation,” and “grinding” as examples. Our young people are being deliberately exposed to graphic sexual material in schools that accept Common Core.

What do many of these books have in common? They are approved by the American Library Association for school use for "young" adults. And what is a "young" adult? Ages 12 and over.
And who is the ALA you asked? The same group that teamed up with the ACLU to fight the Children's Internet Protection Act that said that public libraries had to have filters on their computers to prevent children from accessing pornographic material on a public library. The ALA fought that law, based on "age" discrimination. They believed that children had the right to access any material from a computer that an adult did. And for 10 years plus, the ALA has been adding pornographic material to their "young" adult list. And these books are finding their way into America's schools all in the name of "diversity." Do your research on the ALA. If you are a parent of a student, you won't like what you find.

All of this is designed to "normalize" behavior that by any social moral standard would be considered abnormal. Rape, sodomy, homosexuality, beastiality, incest, all used as "shock" value to desensitize kids to those actions.

This is not new. If anyone had bothered to read the philosophy of Antonio Gramsci, the Italian Marxist, you would understand why these books are being put into the classrooms of minds that are impressionable and can be molded to accept what we, or our parents and grandparents, would have never accepted as "normal."

Add the other aspect of Common Core and the goals of the ALA; normalizing radical Islam. Just because you witnessed almost 3,000 people die on 9-11-2001, watched the horror that was the Boston Marathon or reeled in shock over the actions of a Soldier of Allah at Fort Hood, your children are now being taught that Islam is a peaceful religion and that Muslims are no different than we are, and all they want is a peaceful world to live in. While Christianity is a no-go area for most schools, Islam is being taught with impunity, all with the help of the ALA.

Common Core, along with the influence of the American Library Association, must be stopped. And yes, parents have certain rights; the right to demand the learning materials used in your child's class room prior to its use; the right to pull you child out of any class that counters your own religious beliefs; the right to opt your child out of any instruction that counters your own personal beliefs.

Parents can no longer trust that teachers, and school administrators, have the best interest of your child at heart. They don't. They have come out of liberal/progressive universities, taught this trash in their own classes, and have been indoctrinated to think there is nothing wrong with pornography and consequently children should be exposed to it.

Get involved. Demand a list of all instructional materials. Go to school board meetings. RUN FOR SCHOOL BOARD. As a parent, it is your responsibility to protect your children from those who would indoctrinate them in the ways of Gramsci.

By requiring parents to fund public schooling through their taxes, the public education system takes up the resources many parents could be using to send their kids to the school of their choice. How many parents cannot afford private or parochial school tuition because the school component of their property taxes is so high?

That's the problem with forcing people to participate in the funding for a system they may not want to use.

Besides, how long after the implementation of Common Core do you think it will be before the government forces non-public schools to toe the same marks in order to keep accreditation?

All that'd be required would be for a few federal busybodies to mandate that all school curricula be multicultural enough (measured, of course, by the presence of certain texts such as The Bluest Eye) in order to "count." Schools that don't conform would no longer be legal alternatives to the local public school.

Forget all that, we should completely eradicate all education. The foundations for it were started by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the same guy whose mad ramblings and philosophies led to the massacre known as the French Revolution. Education isn't merely a symptom of the problem: Education IS the problem. Wish I had learned that much sooner, or if I did, I actually retained that belief by now.

Rousseau's crackpot ideas form part of the foundation of the loony left. It's not education per se that's the culprit. It's state funded education that's to blame. Home schooled and privately schooled students aren't exposed to this filth and get better educations.

Care to explain why private institutions such as Oglethorpe University, Georgetown University, and Notre Dame University are actually supporting Left-Wing stuff and cramming it down our throats, even bringing people who support stuff that, in the case of Notre Dame and Georgetown, are anathema to Catholic doctrine, to speak before students?

So you prefer a nation full of useful idiots? Well, if the teacher's unions and Common Core proponents have their way, your wish will be granted.

I suggest you research the history of "public" schools in the United States, established long before Rousseau decided it was cool. But, perhaps it would be a good idea to abolish state funded schools and allow the churches to build and run them since the government did such a bang up job in destroying charity hospitals, old folks homes, orphanages and all other establishments that were handled with more care, and efficiency, than the dimwits in D.C. could ever dream of.

Considering that Rousseau died in 1778, I doubt there was anything about the U.S. public schools that was established "long before Rousseau decided it was cool."

No, if I preferred a nation full of useful idiots, I would have actually supported education, since they are constantly churning them out. And believe me, its not just public education. Speaking as someone who went to [url="www.gpc.edu";]Georgia Perimeter College[/url] and [url="www.oglethorpe.edu";]Oglethorpe University[/url] and had to witness the kinds of garbage several of the classes were pushing that were anti-Christian, anti-American, pro-Leftist, and all of that (and the latter's a private college, to boot), not to mention stuff like American University making a course on 50 Shades of Gray, the Grover Furr incident a few years back, and all of that, as well as places like Georgetown University and Notre Dame University allowing people who support things that inherently conflict with the Catholic faith to speak before several students AND allowing the likes of Bill Ayers to not only get away scot-free with terrorism, but make him into a tenured professor, I'm more than a little certain that it is indeed education itself that is very much the problem. Heck, recently a private school fired a teacher just because he disagreed with another teacher's homosexual nature. Heck, Jean-Paul Sartre was definitely educated at a university, and he pretty much was a "fellow traveler" or at least a useful idiot when it came to Communism.

And believe me, Rousseau is indeed the father of education, at the very least the modern version of it, all thanks to that POT treatise "Emile."

Your article is vague and uninformative. Reporter Malpractice. If you are going to bring up Common Core be honest. The National Governors Association and School Administrators had NOTHING to do with Common Core but gave them cover which you also do by inaccurate assessment. The Bill Gates foundation was behind Common Core and the Dep of Education was in way up to their pathtic neck. The Governors once again were bought off and bribed to participate the so called Race to the Top with money that would be withheld if they did not agree to accept the Common Core. Imagine the same technique this Administration has used time again to extort and bribe congressmen with special favors to get their ends while the taxpayer and citizen is hosed over. Sure go ahead and focus on the Content but also report where all this leads. Right back to the White House and the Crony oriented bureacrats who will now feed our students with leftist mediocre leftist crap. Do your job. If you are going to report on Common Score do the whole story. You are part of the problem. The pornography etc is just mere evidence of a smelly corrupt leftist agenda that will kidnap the education of our kids and keep them locked in state of perpetual ingorance jooined at the hip ot our ever loving FAther Leader--Obama and his heirs to the leftists throne.

We need to get our educational policy terminology right here.

These books have been assigned to students for years with no "Common Core."

If we defeat the policies that are Common Core, these books will still be assigned to students.

This is a matter of inappropriate materials being taught in the schools, not a matter of Common Core.

The Common Core fight has awakened many people to the advanced case of leftist rot that is alive and well in K - 12 education. But if we don't fight these fights intelligently, we are going to lose.

The Common Core fight is incredibly complex. But the political reality is very simple: we need to make governors oppose Common Core or face consequences. We need to push federal intervention in state schools back. We need to understand how the feds are encroaching on states and how states are encroaching on local control.

But talking about individual books or individual parts of the curriculum is a losing game. It enables the supporters of Common Core federalization to simply say -- hey, I'll take this book off the list, now we're done, go away.

These people are forcing inappropriate sexual materials on your children because we're in a culture war, not because of Common Core.

I would say, respectfully, that it may come across as hysterical to call this grooming behavior on the part of the authorities.

But you are quite right that the same authorities are bound and determined to have the next generation convinced that anal and oral intercourse are just as much 'normal' sexual expression as vaginal; and that everyone engages in them, more or less interchangeably.

The point seems to be to cater to the feelings / demands of the gay, etc., lobby--sex education has to be 'about them' too, or they'll be marginalized and angry.

If your kids are in public schools, it's probably a good idea to keep as close track as possible of all their reading assignments.

Leftists are just begging God to destroy humanity. Teen sadomasochism.... So now I have to worry about walking in on my son one day getting sodomized by his girlfriend with a strapon (that his school will probably happily provide in the near future). Man, my soul is hurting so much... What a world. What next? Is there anybody out there that feels like me? What are you doing to keep yourself from going insane? Any tips?

-- I can't pull him out of public school... long story. Even if, he will still have friends who are exposed to this crap.

When I was high school age I read this as an assignment:

“Then came the march past the victims. The two men were no longer alive. Their tongues were hanging out,
swollen and bluish. But the third rope was still moving: the child, too light, was still breathing...
And so he remained for more than half an hour, lingering between life and death, writhing before our eyes.
And we were forced to look at him at close range. He was still alive when I passed him. His tongue was still
red, his eyes not yet extinguished.

Behind me, I heard the same man asking:
"For God's sake, where is God?"
And from within me, I heard a voice answer:
"Where He is? This is where--hanging here from this gallows..."

That night, the soup tasted of corpses.”
― Elie Wiesel, Night

Some people may not want their "child" to know of such things. Gives me nightmares decades later. Morrison deals with subjects not for young children. Nobody forced any 5th grader to read "The Bluest Eye". It is past that level.

So now talk about specifics. Really you want for your own is a curriculum tailored to you beliefs, a religious school would fit nicely and you can do that. Nobody forces you to send your children to public schools.

And I got to read books about suicide and hanging puppies for middle school assignments. My teachers thought it was edifying. I've come to the conclusion that they were sick in the head.

And I was reading things like "Under the Hammer," at the time.

The real problem is you simply cannot delegate educating your children about sex and death to someone else. They are simply to big, and to dangerous for someone who has no stake in the results to handle them.

How can you bring the Holocaust into a discussion of sexualizing children? The two are not the comparable! You have decided that your beliefs are the default, and that it is normal to teach them. Not wanting children to be sexualized has nothing and I repeat nothing to do with religion. No one I know atheist, Christian, Jew, Muslim or any other religion or belief set would ever, ever think sexualizing children was normal.

My twelve year old son was asked to read Monster, where a butt plug is described in detail. He'd never been on a date or even kissed a girl, but the school system thought it was really just fine for him to read that, as well as the homosexual gang rape scene. "Caligula" is considered a classic pornographic movie. Would you object to showing it to high schoolers, or do you think that's a nifty idea too?

Bonnie, nobody is agreeing that this would be acceptable.

However, if you wish to discuss Morrison further, while I do not think it is an appropriate book for even high school students, it does not "advocate" child molestation. Read Morrison's entire quote -- she is describing how she is making the molester human and ordinary so people can understand the dynamics of molesters and the ways they try to impose themselves on children -- including how they exploit empathy, as all sex offenders do.

You are taking her discussion out of context, as many people have since this book came to the attention of anti-Common Core activists.

The K - 12 reading curriculum is heavy with "social problem" and victimization books and especially heavy on books about American slavery, mistreatment of American Indians, the plight of illegal immigrants, sex abuse, gay lifestyles, Japanese internment, and the Holocaust. Students are guided through these books not to learn how to read literature or study history but to experience and express vicarious feelings about victimization/bullying (the only religion allowed in public schools is worship at the temple of bullying) -- and they are taught, in a highly politicized manner, to define all people through the lens of "victims" or "oppressors."

I was assigned Anne Frank in school, but I imagine it is taught now very differently. Based on the PBS curricula, it seems that the only thing students are taught about WWII besides the Holocaust is that America "did the same thing" to the Japanese. I have seen Bluest Eye taught in ways that define young white girls with blue eyes and blonde hair as worse than the molester himself -- imaginary offenders, guilty for being white, are the real villains.

None of this is OK. But Toni Morrison herself is not, for all her flaws, pro-child molester.

Private schools are already being told to teach to the standards.

Parents aren't the only ones paying taxes -- and I don't want the money forcibly taken from me though taxation to go to even more unaccountable, unelected entities through vouchers just because you want that.

We need to do the hard work of fixing the system we're taxed for, not force my family to hand over money to both the system and to your family to take it where you wish as the rest of the system rots.

Sorry, it's my family's money. I'd rather it stay in the hands of people I can at least vote against. Charter schools, I can get behind. But handing over my money to your favorite school when I am taxed but have no say in it is usurious in a whole new way.

Sorry Tina, Nice try but your argument has as much merit as the children you have, meaning none. I'm not trying to insult you. However I've met many who share your peculiar anger at being taxed to support something you can't use. But unfairness is what most taxes are about. E.G. Why should those who have the ability to buy a house get to deduct mortgage interest while those who rent can't? Is it fair? We're on a slippery slope Tina. Why do we let government create monopolies of certain services and then get to tax us to use them? Government is the most inefficient method to deliver any good or service. Our taxes are routinely used for purposes other than what we were promised when we voted for them. Worse, some violate our conscience like being forced to pay for promiscuity and abortion against our religious beliefs. School vouchers like all free choices by free individuals will always make them and you happier than submitting to a government, a state, a bureaucracy where a few politicians choose for everyone.

Burkean -- you are being inappropriately personal. I have to wonder where the line is drawn with the editors for this sort of thing. And I neither object to paying for public education (we all use public education) nor think that public education is what it should be -- so in addition to paying I spend many hours lobbying, researching, and writing about problems in the schools -- and solutions that increase parental choice and a return to real traditional education, not Common Core nonsense.

You don't seem to grasp that you're the one advocating for lack of representation with taxation. That's what vouchers are -- tax dollars forcefully collected by the majority to pay for the choices of individuals (not just parents). All I am saying is that I do not support letting tax dollars be collected then handed over to individuals outside any realm of accountability. And a large part of the reason I don't support that is because of some of the nonsense it gets spent on in these settings. If we're going to be taxed, we should at least retain some connection to our tax dollars.

And of course we all pay for things we oppose. You're the one making a very muddled and confused claim about that.
