Now the Obama administration is coming after America’s school children with the Common Core Science Standards.  This is where the environmental extremism, sustainability, population control (e.g., counseling and referring students for abortions and contraceptions), Agenda 21, redistribution of wealth, evolution taught as fact, global warming (i.e., climate change), and other parts of the social justice agenda will be implemented into our nation’s classrooms and right into the minds and lives of our children.

 

With 45 states (and D. C.) originally having committed to the Common Core Standards (English and Math) before they were ever written, the Common Core Science Standards are the next in the pipeline to emerge.  The Common Core Social Studies Standards are close behind.

 

Will our Congressional House members “who have the power of the purse” ever have the courage to rise up and cut the funding for the Common Core Standards Initiative/Race to the Top, including the national assessments in English/Math/Social Studies/Science, the national teacher evaluation system, and the personally intrusive national database?  Without the federal funding and federal support by the U. S. Dept. of Education, the whole Common Core Standards house of cards would come falling down.  The U. S. House could stop the CCS Initiative in its tracks by cutting off the appropriations!

Also, it is important for us to notice that NASBE’s project (below) received $319,000 from the Carnegie Foundation to push the Common Core Science Standards.  The Carnegie Foundation has worked closely with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (and also with Jeb Bush’s Foundation for Excellence in Education) to foist the Common Core Standards Initiative upon our country.

NASBE Launches Next Generation Science Standards Policy Initiative

Arlington, VA — As states work to implement new math and English standards, policymakers from 26 lead state partners are participating in the development of the voluntary Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for K-12 education, which are now nearing completion.

 

The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) is embarking on a yearlong initiative to provide state board members with information, analysis, and resources about the new standards so they are fully prepared to make the best, evidence-based decisions for their states. The project is supported by a $319,000 grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.

NASBE has been a leader in the effort to assist states as they adopt and implement the Common Core State Standards, and it will apply that experience to help state board members understand the development, history, and future of the Next Generation Science Standards. The development of the science standards – now in their second draft, with a final version expected in March – is being spearheaded by Achieve in conjunction with the National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science…

The NGSS are focused on four areas: physical science; life science; earth and space science; and engineering, technology, and practical applications of science…
