Seriously, Common Core?

 Written by  

According to this, there's a nifty little book being taught to fourth graders at Buffview Elementary in Illinois that's all about Dear Leader.  And apparently, it's raising a few eyebrows.  It's called Barack Obama, it was written by Jane Sutcliffe, and - here's a shocker for you - it's new and totally compliant with the new Common Core Standards.

YAY!

This book isn't just biographical - it has some neat little stereotypes and generalizations and, well, FREAKING LIES, in it.  It says that "all white voters would have refused to vote for Obama because of his race. It continues to say that Obama made race a part of his campaign, and that is why he won."

But wait!  There's more!

"But some people said Americans weren't ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president," the book claims. "Other angry voices were raised. Barack's former pastor called the country a failure. God would damn the United States for mistreating its black citizens, he said."

Students are going to be tested on material such as this:

And with Obama at the helm, we've made a "more perfect United States" now, huh kiddos?

Nothing like a little indoctrination in the morning.  Mmmmm.  Yummay.

I looked it up. It's not mandatory reading for all schools but this school will be testing on it. I can't believe garbage like this is getting by...wait yes I can.

I got an email from our liberty group.  A couple of the country school districts have politely informed the capitol that they will not be participating in CC.  There is said to be a survey to be sent to the voters in the big city district, asking about what kind of levy they (we) would prefer...  since the last 2 didn't pass, and the school just can't function with the paltry $30.5 million.  I am waiting to see what the district my son attends is going to do.  I just may have to open enroll in yet another district.

This doesn't surprise me after all we have seen, but glad to see some Moms and Dads in IL taking against Common Core in November - here is a good piece from their point of view
