ANTI-COMMON CORE STANDARDS RESOURCE LIST FROM 12.11.09 THROUGH 12.31.13 – COMPILED BY DONNA GARNER OVER FOUR YEARS

*These are some of the best resources that clearly explain why the Common Core Standards/Race to the Top are harmful to our school children. For people who do not like to read, there are many videos and podcasts also.  

For people who have only recently become aware of the Common Core Standards Initiative or for those who are researching to try to alert their elected officials about the dangers of the CCSI, this list of Anti-Common Core Standards Resources should be invaluable.  

This list puts these resources all “in one place” on one website for easy access.  The resources are listed in chronological order and clearly show that a huge backlash against the Common Core Standards Initiative is growing as more people learn about the onerous consequences of allowing the federal government to take over our nation’s school children.

This list also shows that many states are taking action against the CCSI. CCSI is not inevitable if concerned citizens will rise up and do their part to stop its implementation.

I have taken the liberty to change a few of the titles to help readers locate articles more easily. 

WHERE TO START

**The beginning point  – an understanding of Type #1 and Type #2 philosophies of education: http://www.educationviews.org/comparison-types-education-type-1-traditional-vs-type-2-cscope-common-core/

 

COMMON CORE STANDARDS ALL IN ONE EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND GRAPHIC

***[The following arrows mean “lead to.”]

National standards  →  national assessments  →  national curriculum → national teacher evaluations with teachers’ salaries tied to students’ test scores  →  teachers teaching to the test each and every day  →  national indoctrination of our public school children  →  national database of students and teachers containing personally intrusive information

* Note from Donna Garner:  Officially the Common Core Standards Initiative is composed of only two sets of national standards – English (a.k.a., The Common Core Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects), and Math.  The Next Generation Science Standards document (NGSS) was made public in 7.14.10 with the formal draft of the NGSS being released on 5.11.12.  The final NGSS standards were published in April 2013, but the NGSS is not under the Common Core Standards official banner. Utilization of the NGSS is strictly voluntary by school districts.
