They left out the biggest CON of all, "Reduction of education to the least commonRead More denominator". This is an international standard from the UN called Agenda 21. It is on the surface described as a common set of standards WORLDWIDE, but instead it is limiting local school districts from working on the strengths of it's community, and limiting it to the least common denominator of other communities weaknesses. Our country has become great due to the diversity of thought, regions, communities, religious beliefs. This standard intends to filter out all of those pieces of the Jigsaw puzzle that fit together into one standard square block where none can excel in any area above another. And where Religion cannot be used as a guide. IF YOU ARE A HOME SCHOOLER OR PRIVATE SCHOOL... PAY ATTENTION TO IT. COMMON CORE IS DEFINING THE ACCREDIDATION TESTS THAT YOUR STUDENTS WILL NEED TO PASS IF THEY WANT TO GRADUATE TO COLLEGE. It is one thing to have some standards, it is another thing to extrapolate that to education going beyond true Core education. There is more Social Engineering than education. Less Reading Writing and Arithmetic, and more "defining society without God". That may be ok for some, but not ok for all. That variance is what makes a country like ours work. PLEASE RESEARCH AGENDA 21 AND COMMON CORE. Note that they say the states adopted it, but be sure to ask how much grant money they stood to lose if they did not adopt it. When you get the answers, please share it.
