The word common is erets in the Hebrew it means, nations, way or world.
Core means the central innermost part of, the most essential part of anything.
My husband has always said that this indoctrination system called the NEA is the worst enemy of our nation. With those definitions in mind is this agenda in education really essential to the innermost part of our children's development? Common Core is a one size fits all system designed o massively dumb down our children and all future generations. We no longer care about reading, writing and arithmetic. We want to save the planet, the owls and the turtles while teaching them that killing the children is choice and not murder. We want condoms on banans and recycle bins on every curb. Cursive writing is being removed so that our children wont be able to sign contracts or documents it will all be digital.
