Will Common Core produce well-educated Americans or indoctrinated pacifist global citizens?

How is Common Core now being used in classrooms?
The not-yet published Common Core standards give every indication of mangling Cold War History.
Original documents are presented in such a manner as to actually diminish them.
Ayers and his allies used the “critical policy area” of education, and through four aims: “local school councils,” small schools, social justice teaching, and payment of reparations through education spending.
Publishers are promoting new Core-aligned materials.
“Race to the Top” required that states commit to yet-to-be-written Common Core standards in math and English/Language Arts (ELA).
When initial White House visitor logs were released in 2009, the administration quickly dismissed speculations about visits by “William Ayers.”
Three years after the Department of Education announced a contest called Race-to-the-Top for $4.35 billion in stimulus funds, some parents, teachers, governors, and citizen and public policy groups are coming to an awful realization about the likely outcomes.
Your column “As the Third World Turns” did a good job of pointing out the even larger entanglement between the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) and organizations putting on workshops about Islam for teachers. However, I feel that your (largest) section about Barbara Petzen’s presentation left out some very important points.
