Bill Gates Tries to Fashion Teacher Support for His Beloved Common Core

March 14, 2014



One would think that if teachers supported the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), then teachers would take the initiative to rally around said CCSS.
Not so. It seems that we need Bill Gates to tell us that we need CCSS. He did so today (Friday, March 14, 2014), in Washington, DC:
Bill Gates is rallying teachers to support an embattled cause, the Common Core State Standards.
Got that? Teachers support CCSS to such a degree that they need Bill to tell them to do so.
It seems that Gates has once again bought himself an audience; he offered his CCSS-indulging speech to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) at its Teaching and Learning conference.
Why is Gates, a non-teacher, offering his non-expertise to an audience of nationally-certified teachers?
Consolation prize for millions donated.
Gates has paid NBPTS $5 million in the form of two grants, one in 2010, and one in 2013:
Date: May 2010 
Purpose: to score Measures of Effective Teaching videos, enhance the Take One materials and processes and design, and assess the efficacy of those materials as a 

Big Business Targets Common Core's Band of Mothers

Big Business Targets Common Core’s Band of Mothers



The powerful strike back against those who dare question Common Core.




The special interests behind national curriculum and testing mandates are pouring millions into public relations and lobbying this spring after parents across the country began to oppose and destabilize their big project. Friday, Politico reported that the Business Roundtable and Chamber of Commerce are buying pricey ads on Fox News and mobilizing their state chapters to keep lawmakers in line. The same day, Bill Gates joined George Stephanopoulos to continue branding the Common Core mandates as a catalyst for improving U.S. education. Gates has joined with left-leaning philanthropies on a communications push worth more than $2.35 million.
Even the federal government is in the game. Through the Common Core testing organizations it exclusively funds, the feds spend at least $9.9 million to promote Common Core, largely through locating teachers who like the project and training them as spokespeople. The Fox News ads will also feature teachers, since focus groups have found them to be well-received pitch-men.
Since January 1, lawmakers in at least 23 states have proposed to amend or repeal Common Core. This spring’s state legislative sessions mark the last real chance to ditch it, so the battle has escalated.
This fall, federally funded and controlled Common Core tests are slated to roll out and essentially cement it (until the next big thing). These tests and their corresponding curriculum mandates will influence almost everything about most American schools: teacher evaluations, textbooks, learning software, school funding, even student grades. In 2013, most parents and teachers first met Common Core. Some began to complain about federal overreach, lack of public debate, pilot test questions and 
 


Dillardrauner VS Raunerdillard: the FUD Strategy | Reclaim Reform

Dillardrauner VS Raunerdillard: the FUD Strategy | Reclaim Reform:



Dillardrauner VS Raunerdillard: the FUD Strategy

The teachers in Illinois, and elsewhere, are facing a FUD moment. (FUD is the acronym for Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt. This is the vile marketing-propaganda strategy for causing confusion and harm to competitors.) When two or three identical products or candidates use FUD to damage competitors and people in general, issues become nearly impossible to ascertain.
Dillard Quinn Rauner
Billionaire Tea Party Republican gubernatorial candidate, Bruce Rauner, is opposed in the primary by the recent chairman of ALEC, Kirk Dillard. Their ads blame each other for not being severe enough in ideology.
The IEA has attempted to show leadership in one way or another. They chose to endorse and fund Dillard – for now. Why?
The Democratic candidate and incumbent, Gov. Pat Quinn, signed the pension cuts and other assorted anti-teacher, anti-union, anti-public education bills. He will probably be endorsed and funded by these same unions during the November elections. Why?
