‘Common Core Standards’ called ‘Trojan horse’

Apr 2, 2013 by

Opponents to the ‘common core standards” held a rally at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City. According to a March 27 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, those opposed to the common core standards feel it is a plot by the federal government to take over education in the Sooner State.

Those at the rally want Oklahoma legislatures to overturn the common core standards. They believe that Oklahoma was “lured” into implementing the common core standards by promises of federal money. Oklahoma never received any federal money after passing the common core standards. Protestors called those standards a “Trojan horse.”

“I love smaller government,” Robert Pickens, from Oklahoma City, said. “The less of a role the federal government and even the state government plays in our lives the better.”

The common core standards set the requirements of what students in Oklahoma must learn. Those requirements include the subjects of English, history, social studies and science.

At the time of publication, it was unknown if Oklahoma lawmakers were even considering overturning the common core standards.
