Joining internet radio host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. will be Dr. Deborah Duncan Owens, author of The Origins of the Common Core - How the Free Market Became Public Education Policy.
Major points to be addressed in the show:
The creation and impact of the American Diploma Project and the role of Achieve, the Fordham Foundation, and the Education Trust in supporting this project.
The influence of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and others in financing the CCSS
The reports that came out of the American Diploma Project that led to the final creation of the CCSS.

The complex and convoluted final creation of the CCSS that took place at break neck speed and was trotted out in June 2010.
The Criticism of the production of the CCSS especially from some members of the CCSS Validation Committee.
How the CCSS was now the Gorilla in the Room that helped further education reform initiatives such as Charter Schools, Student Data mining, the use of Value Added Measurements (VAM), alternative teacher certification initiatives such Teach for America, and high stakes testing.
Please don't miss this eye-opening show. Knowledge is Power and we need to fight the reform monster with TRUTH.
