Be Wary of Common Core Propaganda Foisted on Hoosiers

mega-phone-manThis was a good letter to the editor in the Indy Star last Friday.  John Stoffel of Huffington warned about Common Core propaganda.

An excerpt:

These investors after losing their political connection with Bennett, have moved to new propaganda techniques: Use Teach for America teachers to give the appearance teachers need the Common Core. As a 20-year veteran teacher, I am not enthused by a plan to transfer control from the profession of teaching to the profits of corporations….

…The more aggressively that education organizations have to sell Hoosiers on Common Core, the more assured one can be it is simply a gimmick for them to belly up to the hundreds of millions of dollars the Common Core will cost Hoosier taxpayers.

Good stuff John!
