ROBERT SCOTT:STATES TOLD TO SIGN ON BEFORE COMMON CORE STANDARDS WERE WRITTEN — 2.11.13

TeacherBy Donna Garner


Pressured by Obama’s U. S. Dept. of Ed. to sign on to the Common Core Standards BEFORE THEY WERE EVER WRITTEN

Former-Texas Commissioner of Education Robert Scott spoke for less than 14 power-packed minutes in front of the Georgia General Assembly Joint Meeting of the House and Senate Education Committee on Feb. 9, 2013.   

In Robert Scott’s fast-paced but gripping remarks, he shared a bit of his personal life and then explained what thought processes he went through when the U. S. Department of Education tried to pressure Texas into committing to the Common Core Standards BEFORE THEY WERE EVER WRITTEN.  

As you listen to Robert Scott’s testimony, you will learn how secretive the development of the Common Core Standards was, how little money the states actually received (e.g., Race to the Top), and how much state-and-local control they will be forced to turn over to the federal government if they go forward with the implementation of CCS. 

 

It is not too late for states to roll back on their commitment to CCCS, and some of the states are beginning to do just that as the public is learning more about the scary ramifications of turning their children over to the federal government. 

 

            QUOTE FROM ROBERT SCOTT:    

“My experience with the Common Core started when I was asked to sign on to them before they were written. I was told I needed to sign a letter agreeing to the Common Core, and I asked if I might read them first, which is, I think, appropriate.  I was told they hadn’t been written, but they still wanted my signature on the letter. And I said, ‘That’s absurd; first of all, I don’t have the legal authority to do that because our [Texas] law requires our elected state board of education to adopt curriculum standards to be done with the direct input of Texas teachers, parents, and business. So adopting something that was written behind closed doors in another state would not meet my state law.” 

Part 1 

 

Part 2  

 

“If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare,
and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare,
they may take the care of religion into their own hands;
they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish
and pay them out of their public treasury;
they may take into their own hands the education of children,
establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union;
they may assume the provision of the poor;
they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads;
in short, every thing, from the highest object of state legislation
down to the most minute object of police,
would be thrown under the power of Congress…. Were the power
of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for,
it would subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature
of the limited Government established by the people of America.”
