Building the Machine
"Building the Machine" introduces the public to the Common Core States Standards Initiative (CCSSI) and its effects on our children's education.
What is Common Core?
Common Core is a special interest takeover of education that replaces local control with national standards, treating every child as though they are the same and learn the same. These standards affect every school in the nation by allowing big business and bureaucrats into the classroom. The standards established through Common Core fail to account for innovation or critical thinking. Education should be about rewarding excellence and treating children like the unique individuals they are—not a race to mediocrity and commonality.
We need to stop Common Core and put education back in the hands of students, parents, and local communities.
