UPDATE: Letter to the Editor Debunks Common Core Missouri Education Watchdog: Protecting Student Privacy Rights and Data

Missouri Education Watchdog: Protecting Student Privacy Rights and Data:


Letter to the Editor Debunks Common Core Talking Points


The exponent-telegram.com printed a letter to the editor questioning the spin from the Common Core special interest groups (NGA, CCSSO, State School Boards, School districts, education reform companies, companies/researchers funded by the Gates Foundation): 


**************************************************

From the wvde.state web site, questions and their “answers” that I have to question.
1) “Is having common standards the first step toward nationalizing education?”
Their answer: “No. Common Core Standards are a state-led effort. The federal government has not been involved in the development of the standards.”
My response: The true answer is that 45 states were bribed by Washington with several million dollars in education funds to accept the Common Core Curriculum for state education without even knowing what it was about. West Virginia was one of them. That was the first step.

2) “What is the role of the federal government in standards implementation?”

Their answer: “The federal government has had no role in the development of the common core state standards and will not have a role in their implementation.”

My response: Other than their role in requiring the implementation as part of the Common Core

Ms. Irby asked about procedures safeguarding information or being able to opt children out of data gathering.  Has the school board answered her questions?
