    As more and more information comes out about the radical left-wing educational scheme known as Common Core, the more is revealed about it’s hatred of America’s history and values.

    Now, a new report has surfaced to show that Common Core also hates Israel and promotes terrorism against the Jewish state. WND reports:

    A Boston University professor has defended to WND his creation of a Common Core-compliant lesson plan that uses role-playing workshops to teach students to sympathize with Hamas, create a Palestinian state and divide the city of Jerusalem.

    Professor Carl Hobert’s “Whose Jerusalem?” project has been lauded by those at the pinnacle of the education establishment as an important work that will, in the words of Boston University School of Education Dean Hardin Coleman, “help students acquire the skills they need” in conflict resolution “to be successful in the 21st century.”
    But the role-playing exercises have also come under fire recently from pro-Israel groups. One group, Boston-based Americans for Peace and Tolerance headed by Charles Jacobs, released a 27-minute documentary film last month that derides Hobert’s project as an “attempt to indoctrinate” rather than educate.
    Indoctrination rather than education is standard fare for the left when it comes to the education of the young. So, we should not be surprised that this attack on Israel’s sovereignty is thinly disguised as “learning.” WND provides more details:

    The role-playing games where students pretend to represent Arab, Israeli or American interests have been used in hundreds of high schools across America, Hobert told WND. Last year, the program was added to the Common Core-approved list of curricula and received Race to the Top funding from the U.S. Department of Education. The workshop is presented in many schools as part of a “global education” initiative, which is a strong focus of Common Core-compliant curricula.
    The “global citizen” approach to teaching social studies has been adopted not only in public schools but many private and religious schools as well.
    Hobert admits on camera in the documentary that his mission in designing “Whose Jerusalem?” goes beyond educating students. He hopes to turn them into activists.

    America has a lot of history and a lot of different values.

    Has he complained about the Right wing scheme, to white-wash history, that's been so effectively carried out for decades?

    Supporting Israel is a Christian value. It's not an American value. There are a whole lot more Americans who probably don't care about Israel than do.

    Would it be okay to teach that we should be pro-Israel?

    Perhaps if we were pointing more folks to Christ...

    Means you concede dominance to WHOM in all things?
    Where should my love for the Palestinians be? I don't have a fight with the Palestinians. They are just on the wrong side of God. But so are the Israeli's.

    I can lovingly share the Gospel with both and still stand firmly on the side of God.

    David Coleman, the Most Influential Education Figure You've Never Heard Of

    "...Coleman, a Jewish man....is perhaps best known as the architect of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, meant to bring divergent state learning goals into alignment.....The experience of conducting a deep exegesis at age 13 framed Coleman’s thinking about education. “The idea that kids can do more than we think they can is one of Judaism’s most beautiful contributions,” he said.....These ideas, Sherman speculated, stem from Coleman’s religious background. “He grew up in a family that extremely prioritized the value and importance of a deep, broad education,” Sherman said. “Those Jewish values toward education have a lot to do with his belief system: Every child should be a smart thinker, a deep thinker, someone who’s analytical and probing.” Coleman also believes that religious texts have a place in the public school curriculum."

    Wonder which religion would 'have it's place' in the program? Judaism would suit you just fine, wouldn't it Rev?

    Should they switch to the one more desired by political conservatives?

    Silly rabbit; if you answer my question, then we know whether those particular religious texts are already in Common Core or not. Upon determining that, then we can answer yours.

    Zaac doesn't answer questions nor furnish evidence. You're wasting your time.

    He doesn't answer because he knows he'll have to contradict himself.

    You already know what's in there thus your original question. So what religious texts should be in there?

    He has never answered one direct question nor provided on piece of evidence for any claim he has made since he recently came to this board.

    "Should they switch" indicates that only a particular religious text, or set of religious texts, are currently included. Since you apparently don't know which ones those are, how can you ask the question you did?

    But I'll be gentlemanly and answer your question, even if you won't show the courtesy to do the same: If it were my call, if I were to include any religious texts, I'd include ALL of them.

    Sure it does. Common Core is imbalanced toward Christianity and Judaism and some Islam.


    Opinion. If I don't know something, I'll make sure that I let you know.:thumbs:

    For what we're talking about, it's a role-playing exercise. The students can include whatever text they want based upon their role. If they want to include competing religious texts, as a basis of defending their position, they may.

    So if it's already imbalanced towards Christianity and Judaism, then what religious texts are you implying that political conservatives want to change it to?

    Well, you know what they say about opinions and armpits....

    If the teachers follow the instructions--no, not really. From nearly every website I can find posting about this subject:

    I didn't imply anything. I asked
    Some obviously don't like the current curriculum. So what do you want it changed to?


    No, but I bet you can tell me. :laugh:



    So I will assume given what you just said that they also do likewise for folks in the opposite position. As such, it shouldn't be seen as a problem.

    It's actually a good teaching method to cause people to think about things from another POV.
