Ben Swann: The Most Dangerous Domestic Spying Program Is Common Core

Ben Swann: The Most Dangerous Domestic Spying Program Is Common Core

Earlier this year, revelations about the Department of Justice spying on the Associated Press were quickly followed by revelations that the NSA was collecting phone data on all Verizon, and then all American cell phone, users. Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing drew yet more attention to the issue, and domestic surveillance programs have remained a top issue in people’s minds ever since.

While Americans focus on institutions like the CIA and NSA, though, programs are being implemented which would lead to a much more institutional way of tracking citizens. Obamacare is one of these, but Common Core Standards – the federal educational program – is the most eyebrow-raising.

We must become familiar with the buzzwords and buzz phrases the education indoctrination establishment use to encourage parents to support their educational tyranny.

If you run into the phrase "academic mindset" or "personalized learning at scale" find out what "educators" are talking about, the following should help:

Thank you for the post.

It will be great for my kids to read. They still don't GET why mass surveillance and data storing by Big Brother is wrong, or how it will be used against them in their future.

I was an EDU student last semester.

We had a lady come in and speak for over an hour on common core and she did describe a system of tracking kids. They report year by year in your childs documents how they progress, what they need to work on, strengths, weaknesses etc.) In reality, in a free market education system this is a good way to track progress. However, in the hands of the state when the majority of teachers are socialists (even here in Southern Missouri) because they have an investment to the state; they sign the paychecks, yes we will see their points of views projected in our children. They are under your child's supervision for many hours a day.. the teacher is a massive asset the state and that is why I chose not to be one. My EDU program also emphasized socializing kids and all the mistakes in the education system were blamed on lazy/unloving parents. I was even labeled a latchkey kid.

I would like some evidence

I would like some evidence that Common Core implementation includes cataloging parents' political and religious affiliations.

many site visits

the website shows as of this morning... (Visited 22,700 times, 22,700 visits today).

It's good to see so many people taking the time to be aware.

Please edit the header for clarity: This is at Ben Swann's site,

but he is not the author, Joshua Cook is. This is a worthwhile read, but others might look askance at the way it was posted as well.

Common Core

is just a more invasive rehash of the 1990's Outcome Based education. If you really want to education your children, get them out of public schools.

Teach your children what *you* want them to know...

Teach them at home. It is still legal here, but if we continue to follow European trends, it may not be for long.

!

Call Them "Government Schools"

"Public Schools" does not accurately convey who indoctrinates the children in these public prisons.

I stand corrected.

Government schools.

Okay

Thanks for the post, but why preface it with Ben Swann? This is by Joshua Cook, not Ben Swann... very misleading.
