5.12.13 – WASHINGTON POST  — GATES GIVES $150 MILLION IN GRANTS FOR COMMON CORE STANDARDS

 

[As you read through these grants that Bill Gates gave to “Universities. Unions. State education departments. Nonprofits. Think tanks,” remember which corporation stands to gain the most financially if Common Core Standards (CCS) are implemented throughout the United States – Microsoft Corporation.  In other words, a corporation that stands to gain billions from CCS is owned by the private philanthropist who has been driving education policy.  This is called “a direct conflict of interest” by a vendor who is working alongside the Obama administration to create education policy to federalize standards, curriculum, assessments, teacher evaluations, and a national database of intrusive personal information. The end result would be billions for Microsoft and the indoctrination of our nation’s school children into Obama’s social justice agenda.  To learn more, please be sure to go to the links at the very bottom of this page. – Donna Garner]

For an initiative billed as being publicly driven, the Common Core States Initiativehas benefited enormously from the generosity of the private philanthropy of Bill and Melinda Gates. How much? About $150 million worth.

 

Take a look at this list of grants, obtained from their foundation’s Web site. Note not only the amounts but the wide range of organizations receiving money. Universities. Unions. State education departments. Nonprofits. Think tanks. The grants were given for a range of reasons, including developing materials aligned to the standards and building support for the standards.

 

You can see how invested the Gates Foundation is in the success of the Common Core.

 

What kind of Core support do these grants buy from the organizations that receive them?
