    Obama and his administration skillfully groomed CCS/RTTT to divide and conquer, thus silencing the usual conservative/Republican opposition to Big Government. Obama, working with U. S. Sect. of Education Arne Duncan and using Bill Gates’ money, managed to inject into CCS/RTTT an emphasis on charter schools (which the conservatives/Republicans basically like). Secondly, the Obama administration also tied individual students’ assessment scores directly to teacher evaluations, thus inflaming the teachers’ unions (another aspect that conservatives/Republicans generally like because they prefer private enterprise to unions).

    By inserting these two provisions into CCS/RTTT, the Obama administration and the Democrats successfully silenced the usual opposition; and while the country was fighting the federal takeover of the public schools, most citizens missed the fact that the federal government was taking over their children’s public schools. [Yikes!]

    Unfortunately, the charter schools that the Obama administration is supporting are not the kind of charter schools that the conservatives/Republicans are picturing. Remember that Sect. of Education Arne Duncan tried to establish a gay charter school while he was the superintendent in Chicago , and nothing could make the Obama crowd any happier than to have “social justice” charter schools.

    As of Sept. 9, 2010, thirty-seven (37) states had signed up to follow the Common Core Standards.

    The following states “won” the right to have their students thoroughly indoctrinated by the federal government because these states are taking the federal funds from Race to the Top: District of Columbia, Florida , Georgia , Hawaii , Maryland , Massachusetts , New York , North Carolina , Ohio , Rhode Island , Delaware , and Tennessee

    The ironic part is that the threat/carrot/stick of Race to the Top caused other states to push through the Obama administration’s CCS/RTTT stipulations to try to get the funds, but the federal funds only pay the state a one-time fee of approximately $75 per student. For this pittance, the above-mentioned states have put their students directly into the hands of the Obama administration.
    As you study the graphic below (highlighted in red), please ask yourself how easy it would be for the Obama administration to input pro-Islam/anti-Christian, anti-Judeo and social justice bias (multiculturalism, political correctness, global warming, diversity, acceptance of homosexuality, etc.) into the national assessments.

    The CCS (1) English / Language Arts and (2) Math standards have already been published; the (3) Science CCS are in the pipeline; and the (4) Social Studies CCS are coming soon.

    No public hearings have been held on any of these curriculum requirement documents nor are any likely to be held in the future. The people chosen to write these documents are aligned with the Obama administration. The entire CCS/RTTT plan was never voted on by our elected members of Congress.

    As the graphic below shows, teachers will be forced by CCS/RTTT to “teach to the test” each and every day because their jobs will depend upon it. Sadly, the “tests” will actually be “national assessments” meaning that they will not have right-or-wrong, up-or-down answers.

    Instead, the national assessments will be performance-based and subjectively scored based upon the value system of the scorer. Subjectivity allows for students’ opinions, beliefs, and opinions to be assessed by scorers who have opinions, beliefs, and opinions that may not be in line with those of students’ parents. The U. S. Department of Education has awarded $330 million for these national assessments to be developed.

    Worse yet, to whom will the parent go to complain if he feels his child’s national assessments have been graded wrong -- to the U. S. Department of Education in the insular world of Washington, D. C.?

    This is the way that the Common Core Standards and Race to the Top work. The arrows mean “lead to.”
    National standards → national assessments → national curriculum → teachers’ salaries tied to students’ test scores → teachers teaching to the test each and every day → national indoctrination of our public school children → national database of students and teachers


    Now -- the Video

    Are ready to view this very disturbing video of public school children who were taken on a school field trip to a mosque and what happened upon that visit.

    I couldn't make much sense of your post and didn't see what it had to do with this video at all.

    But I was very impressed with this video which was created by a group called Americans for Peace and Tolerance. It is different from most of the anti-Islamic noise out on the internet because it presents facts with evidence of its claims that can easily be verified. It does so in an even handed manner that is not vitriolic but instead raises legitimate concerns and identifies real politicians and administrators who can be contacted to voice your concerns.

    Additionally, the group is founded by an interfaith group of three academics, one Jew, one Christian (Episcopal) and one Muslim. Their videos are very clearly anti radical islam and pro-moderate islam which I am 100% behind.
