• Watch Bill Gates Admit Common Core Is About Nationalizing Education

    Over the years Bill Gates has poured hundreds of millions of his own money into Common Core academic standards. And at a recent event hosted by Politico, Gates revealed the ugly truth about how Common Core will eventually lead to the erosion of local governance and control over education.

    Gates says he thinks of Common Core “as more of a technocratic issue” and compares its academic standard to electrical sockets and national railroad tracks–one size fitting all. “The basic idea of, ‘should we share an electrical plug across the country?’ Well, you can get partisan about that I suppose. Should Georgia have a different railroad width than everybody else? Should they teach multiplication in a different way? Oh that’s brilliant,” Gates quipped sarcastically.

    Gates called each state having its own educational standard “a cacophony” that didn’t align well with nationalized exams.

    “Common Core is, to me, a very basic idea that kids should be taught what they’re going to be tested on and that we should have great curriculum material,” he said.

    Nationalized education is how America’s schools went from first to worst in the world. Educational curriculums should be developed by local school boards, not by monied lobbyists and interest groups.

    In June, Oklahoma and South Carolina pulled out of the Common Core State Standards initiative. And there is a massive wave of anti-Common Core angst in nearly all 50 states.

    By backing Common Core, Bill Gates has proved himself as an elitist tool and has confirmed Common Core proponents’ plan to use it to sneak in the nationalization of American education.
