It’s not a coincidence that the more the federal government has inserted itself into public education over the years, the worse our kids have fared.  Washington dangles millions of dollars in front of states and then tells them what they have to do to get it. It’s backdoor nationalization of education—and it’s leading us to ruin.


In CONFORM, Glenn Beck presents a well-reasoned, fact-based analysis that proves it’s not more money our schools need—it’s a complete refocusing of their priorities and a total restructuring of their relationship with the federal government. In the process, he dismantles many of the common myths and talking points that are often heard by those who want to protect the status quo.

The Story Killers: a Common Sense Case Against Common Core
Terrence O. Moore

 
 

Michelle Malkin has called The Storykillers “a stopcommoncore must-read.”


It is a must-read. It’s interesting and packed full of understanding about the Common Core English standards, which are ruining the love of learning as they distort what it means to be educated.


The book pits logic and common sense against the theories, deceptions and absurdities of the Common Core. It cuts through the Common Core’s wordiness and plainly states this truth: that Common Core is stunting and killing both the classic literature stories and the great American story of liberty and self-government. Stories that our children and country cannot do without.


In The Story Killers, Dr. Terrence Moore tells us that the restoration of legitimate, time-tested classic literature - “the best that has been thought and said and done and discovered“ - can solve America’s educational decline, whereas the faulty theories of Common Core cannot.

If you don’t read the book, please remember Dr. Moore’s most important point: "We must fight for our stories, which Common Core is stealing."

 

The great stories are not disposable! Who persuaded us that they were? Losing them means losing, piece by piece, what it means to be us. No amount of supposed career prep info-texts can pretend to make up for that.


Good readers, regardless of what they did after they grew up, developed the love of reading and learning by reading stories. Young and old need stories to process life. Great learners fall in love with learning not because of manuals, articles and informational texts, but because of fascinating stories. Classic works of literature are being neglected, shortened, misinterpreted and replaced under Common Core. And the great American story - the story of freedom - is being undermined. The book explains exactly how this is unfolding, using the standards themselves as its centerpiece.


We must fight for our stories.

Orlean Koehle
"Common Core - A Trojan Horse for Education Reform"

 
 
An untried and unvetted fad is being rolled out at all grade levels, in all public schools across the nation, except in Alaska, Texas, Nebraska, and Virginia. The control of mathematics and English language education has been wrested away from state and local school boards and replaced by federal control. Federal testing is scheduled to begin in 2014.

Orlean Koehle’s Common Core examines the events leading to this unprecedented action undertaken by President Obama and the executive branch. Although the “Common Core State Standard Initiative” sounds as if it was developed by states, Common Core (CC) is a “national program, written by a national team.”
