Stanley Kurtz, author of a new book entitled Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities was on the Mike Huckabee Show recently and addressed the issue of distributing education dollars and the Common Core Curriculum. You can listen to the interview here.
Constitutionally and legally the federal government ought not to have a role controlling K through 12 schools. That’s a matter for the states and their respected localities. In fact the Obama administration has managed to orchestrate the creation of a national curriculum. This is an important fact that most Americans know nothing about. More than 40 states – 45 or 46 states have signed on, largely sight unseen, to a national curriculum that is being crafted I’m sorry to say by some left-leaning allies of Obama. It is going to dumb down standards and it is going to be very politically correct. On top of that the allies of Obama who have created the curriculum have a plan to lever federal control of K through 12 education into redistribution of education funding from suburbs to the cities.
