Has anyone else heard about this? I don't always agree with Glenn Beck, but this was interesting and alarming, IMO. I hadn't heard it before I watched this. Makes me glad I'm home educating.

I don't have time to watch the clip but CCS started a while ago. They have slowly taken center stage as education reform with the NCLB Act back with President Bush. Even before that, though, they were worming their way into class rooms. 8(

They are already putting this in schools. Some homeschooling companies are starting to comply with these standards as well.

I can't watch it on my phone, but I saw the title about the teacher who retired because of CC. I can relate. It's in our K already and being transitioned in on the higher grades.
