Global warming will kill us all, warns Common Core-aligned homework
Fifth grade students at Fremont Elementary School in Colorado were assigned a reading passage that describes global warming as a dangerous, man-made phenomenon that will destroy civilization in a few hundred years.
The reading assignment was found inside a workbook aligned with the controversial national Common Core curriculum guidelines, and was titled “Homework from the Future.” It tells the fictional story of a visitor to the year 2512 who discovers that the eastern United States is under water and the country’s population greatly reduced, all thanks to man-made global warming.

Social justice indoctrination in math class courtesy of Common Core
LOS ANGELES – To ensure that not a single minute of precious indoctrination time is wasted in the school day, liberal educators have incorporated brainwashing into every course subject, including math.
Next month, the organization, Creating Balance in an Unjust World, will hold its annual conference on “math education and social justice”.

Furious parents are taking to Twitter to explain their frustration with the new Common Core standards, posting screenshots of incomprehensible Core-aligned worksheets and tests.
The unintentionally hilarious images were collected by Twitchy.
Rubinstein noted that he couldn’t figure out what the page wanted students to do, other than marvel at squares and circles.
With such awesome, child-appropriate wording as “How does Topic C use the array model to move the learning forward?” it’s surprising this wasn’t an English assignment. Not that it works much better as a math assignment. In any case, Common Core deems it worthy of second and third graders.
Daily Caller readers have already been introduced to this lesson on possessive nouns doubling as a authoritarian propaganda. The worksheet is intended for third graders, proving that it is never too early to learn that, “An individual’s wants are less important than the nation’s well-being.” What’s next? “Verb Tenses and Why You Love Big Brother, You Have Always Loved Big Brother,” would be a good guess.

“Dear Family Member.” Parents, break out your brass fasteners and get ready to help your children learn to pronounce words! By spinning circles, or something.
The addition problems on the left are simple enough. No idea what the Tetris game on the right is all about.
Maybe it’s a philosophical question. What is competition, anyway?
Of course if you ask Education Secretary Arne Duncan, the above parents are probably just irrational white moms. (RELATED: Arne Duncan blames irrational angst of ‘white suburban moms’ for Common Core pushback)
A) It’s none of their business. B) Considering how liberal academia is there’s bound to be retaliation for those identifying as conservatives.
Via Illinois Review:
An assignment sent home from an Oak Forest, IL high school government class is raising eyebrows among parents who are shocked by the questionnaire they and their children are required to fill out. The questionnaire (above) has the parents identify their positions on a number of highly-charged issues, and then places them on a “political spectrum.”
The survey is from the textbook “U.S. Government 2“, published by the “The Center for Learning”. It is part of Oak Forest High School’s Common Core curriculum, which according to the school district’s website is to …”provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.”
Barack Obama by Jane Sutcliffe
Fourth graders in Dupo Illinois are reading a biography of Barack Obama by author Jane Sutcliffe. The book teaches children that white voters rejected Obama because of race.
What absolute BS.
The Illinois Review reported:
The book – brought to the attention this week of those on the “Moms Against Duncan – MAD” Facebook page, goes on to say white Americans were hesitant to vote for a black president, and that Obama pushed the race issue to bring the nation together.
“But some people said Americans weren’t ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president. Other angry voices were raised. Barack’s former pastor called the country a failure. God would damn the United States for mistreating its black citizens, he said.”
The Bluffview Elementary students were told the book’s content would be tested for grades. That brought outrage among parents just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, one of the “MAD” moms reported.
This biography of America’s 44th president, entitled “Barack Obama,” is written by Jane Sutcliffe and published by Lerner. The book is part of Scholastic’s “Reading Counts” program acceptable to the controversial Common Core curriculum standards.
Are these people for real? Burning people at the stake is a method of scientific testing and analysis?
Wow, indoctrination tied up as instruction on possessives. This is reportedly part of the Common Core lessons for third graders so it applies to all schools employing those standards.
So third graders are learning:
-it is the President’s job to make everything fair
-the people must obey the commands of government officials
-the individual’s wants are less important than the nation’s well-being.
Let’s try a new lesson on the use of the possessive.
Common Core’s instruction on possessives is atrocious indoctrination and Common Core’s “standards” should be investigated and tossed.
There, now we did our homework for the day…
