Common Core... The White Privilege Connection

A lot has been said lately about Common Core the new national educational standard (Whatever happened to states rights guaranteed by the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution?) being forced upon American Children without the consent of the parents.  Some of the backers of Common Core are from various socialist, one-world-government organizations such as the Gates Foundation and the Muslim Brotherhood (see Common Core...the ultimate goal), but like the Affordable Care Act (AKA ObamaCare) we never seem to know the authors of these dictatorial edicts...that is until now.  Here we have a so-called professor (I wouldn't give guy the title of --- ---- [oh, I can't say that here, this is a family show] never mind the professor bit.) who openly admits why it was that he helped write these ridiculus standards.  You can call them standards as long as long as you precede them with the word 'lower' for thats really what they are.  In fact, the state of Massachusetts where the highest standards in education dominated the nations schools had to lower their standards in order to comply with Common Core, but that's another story.  Wait till you hear the reason why Professor Puke (real name, Pook) decided write the dumbing down of America ←that's what  I call it.  This is what he said, “The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn.”  Can you believe that?  Crazy, huh!  See and hear it for yourself, the video is below.  ~ Norman E.

ps: Let me throw in another of my two cents. The more I read about Common Core the more I see it as a means to lower ourselves into something we are not.  But if you're on the side of the politic elite this is an ideal means to establish more control over all the little people... Are you a little person?  If not stand up and fight back, we don't need Common Core.

Just Listen to the Audience’s Reaction When Teacher Reveals Why He Helped Write Common Core
by Jason Howerton
A teacher who claims he helped write the controversial Common Core State Standards informed a stunned audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics on Monday night that he decided to get involved because he is a “white male” who has been “given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn.”
Dr. David Pook
Dr. David Pook, identified as a professor at Granite State College and chair of the history department at the Derryfield School in Manchester, New Hampshire, had just been introduced at the event when he delved into his ties to Common Core.
“The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn,” he said.
In new video flagged by Campus Reform, the audience can be heard gasping and laughing, seemingly surprised by the comment.
Pook went on to say all kids deserve an “equal opportunity to learn how to read” and the same advantages he had., a pro-Common Core website, states that Pook “worked closely with Susan Pimentel and the Council of Chief State Officers in drafting the Core Standards for English Language Arts, and currently has several projects underway with Student Achievement Partners on work aligned with the CCSS.”
As Campus Reform’s Caleb Bonham notes, the Derryfield School where Pook works does not use the Common Core State Standards and has a student body that is 91 percent white.
