Like many other school districts in the United States that have been co-opted by the "reform" movement, WCSD is going on a mission to try and "educate" people on Common Core.
There is NO way you can turn this sow's ear into a silk purse. It's worse than that--it's pure evil.
Fordham Institute--bad news. It is in favor of the destruction of public education in the United States and turn the whole thing over to billionaires and Wall Street types to make even more money, this time off the taxpayers, These people are literally parasitical. When will people wake up, and when will this insanity end? This is what happens when you have years of tax breaks and wealth distribution upward so that billionaires and their ilk start dictating how the country will be run. It also helps there was 30 years of propaganda that said our schools were no good beginning with the fraudulent and thoroughly debunked 1983 "A Nation at Risk" to help undermine trust in public institutions.
This is why I say pay attention to school board elections in your communities. This cancer is infecting every school district in the United States.
Remember, the whole idea of "common core" was started by the Gates Foundation. Gates has an ulterior motive in education "reform," and that is to ultimately force all public school students into online "academies" where software is by Microsoft and curriculum is by Pearson. No teachers needed at all (why need them when all of the curriculum is standardized all over the US), just low-paid aides to keep the kids under control, and no questioning of authority allowed. That's not the world I want to live in.
