Common Core did not just spring up overnight!Topics:
From Maggie's Notebook - Common Core Timeline - Who, When, Why, How: Repaying "Education Debt," Social Justice, Education Equity
Common Core has many players in the background that most of us are not aware of. This has been a long-time coming, and a hard-sell for a vast cast of Progressives, but sell it they did, and eventually it received the clueless support of state Governors and departments of Education who thought Race-to-the-Top bribes would shore up state education coffers. Surely, no one would teach that the Boston Tea Party was a terrorist action or that Allah is "God," or that Shariah law provides for the poor and has an exceptional code of moral conduct. Who would believe that could happen in America, but it did. These soldiers for socialism never drop-out. They started movements years ago, networked and are still key players. Below is a timeline showing interconnectedness of programs like CSCOPE (graphic below) culminating in Common Core, the fundamental transformation of education, including determining who your child becomes. Common Core is about racial justice, social justice, education justice, and education debt. You owe it, "they" don't. Can't figure out how this happened in your state? It's all about the money. If you have time for nothing else, read the very last paragraph.
For those who don't feel they have the time to read Maggie's full report I will skip to the last paragraph mentioned above which might entice further reading.

InBloom, which has already been caught selling student information, would store student's scores, attendance, needs, disabilities, disciplinary record. If you were suspended in third grade, it would follow you for life. InBloom is working with nine states: Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York and North Carolina.
InBloom goes hand-in-hand with Common Core and standardized testing and they all mesh together to form a nationalized education program run by the federal government. It is unconstitutional but this approach does an end-run around the constitution. Many on both the left and right of the political spectrum are opposed.
