The Boston Catholic Insider is reporting that the Archdiocese of Boston will be implementing the Common Core standards as developed by the Gates Foundation, with the approval of the Obama administration.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Common Core, it is a series of dumbed-down curricula standards from English and Math, turning our future generations into robots. (I wonder why everyone else has a Facebook and I don't!) For a synopsis on this, read this article on the Catholic Exchange on the two moms, Heather Crossin and Erin Tuttle, petitioned the Indiana State Legislature to refuse Federal money for implementing the standards.
Thanks to Mrs. Crossin and Mrs. Tuttle for standing up for what is right, and for the education that our children deserve. On the Catholic Exchange article comments, an angry father exposes what his children are doing at school:
Thank you Chris for exposing what it really is firsthand!
But unfortunately, Boston "Catholic" (Novus Ordo) School Superintendent Dr. Mary Grassa O'Neill has pissed off several parents for implementing this in the Archdiocese of Boston with the blessing of Obama's chief healthcare supporter in the clergy, Sean Cardinal O'Malley. Besides, this is part of the Disciples in Mission program, where Phase Two is scheduled to announced in the Fall unless a new archbishop is appointed.
Instead of reading the Classics and Shakespeare, your kids will be reading about vices on a daily basis. Instead of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, you'll be saying the Pledge to Obama, if not already.
Hey, I suppose the morning prayers will cease in parochial schools as well, since 40 state boards of education have agreed to accept $4.2 billion in Federal grants to implement this in the public schools. The Church of Dolan, based in Yankee country, has struck again with his Red Sox ally in Boston.
