weaselzippers;Crayola Common Core Lessons Promote Maoism, Global Warming Alarmism, Social Justice,
Via EAG News:
Crayola joins the list of big name education companies who have sold out our children and America to the United Nations’ global agenda.Teaching children ‘to take action as global citizens’ in an ‘interdependent world’ and to ‘think about the world more holistically’ are the focus of several Crayola lessons provided in partnership with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), one of the organizations responsible for the creation and implementation of the national Common Core State Standards.Crayola, Lego Education, Apple, and Disney (among others), as members of P21 (Partnership for 21st Century Skills) entered into a ‘strategic partnership’ with the Council of Chief State School Officers in 2010. [...]Crayola recommended resources that promote social justice, globalization, and the theory of global warming are listed here along with writings by humanist and Common Core assessment creator, Linda Darling-Hammond, and progressive Howard Gardner.Another Crayola recommended book, An Attainable Global Perspective, provides a glowing report on Maoism as an alternative to capitalism.From Robert Hanvey’s An Attainable Global Perspective:“Maoists believe that while a principal aim of nations should be to raise the level of material welfare of the population, this should be done only within the context of the development of human beings, encouraging them to realize fully their manifold creative powers. And it should be done only on a egalitarian basis—that is, on the basis that development is not worth much unless everyone rises together; no one is to be left behind, either economically or culturally. Indeed, Maoists believe that rapid economic development’s not likely to occur unless everyone rises together . . .”
Thank You EAG and Zip.

You might also call everybody Else involved in this Common Core crap and ask them WTF.
