“This country is in a student achievement crisis, and over the past decade it has continued to worsen, especially for our most vulnerable students,”


Given sufficient time and exposure the results of humanist, dumbed-down education, coupled with the non-teaching of national pride and history gives way to an avalanche of problems among those graduating high school and college.  A member of the U.S. Congress the likes of AOC who is truly representative of a dumbed-down educational system is appalling!  But she and her peers are representative of a deliberately broken and deliberately unfixed education system meant to turn-out such products.  Mentioned below is a just released report by the U.S. Department of Education as to just how terribly Common Core has hurt America.  The just released official report is startling, sobering, and clearly alarming!  Parents of primary and high school educational students, please, please wake-up!!  There are a few times in life when making a demand is warranted.  This is one of those times.  We are looking at a National Security nightmare! ~LJR

After Years of Common Core, Betsy DeVos Announces ‘Devastating’ Results

Years after Common Core made its debut in many state education systems, the disastrous long-term results of the program are finally being seen.

The revelation came as part of the Department of Education’s 2019 National Assessment of Educational Progress report.

“Every American family needs to open The Nation’s Report Card this year and think about what it means for their child and for our country’s future,” Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a media release. “The results are, frankly, devastating.”

“This country is in a student achievement crisis, and over the past decade it has continued to worsen, especially for our most vulnerable students,” she added.

  1. Any idiot could see theat common core was worse than garbage. Why do we keep allowing the Left to run EVERYTHING into the ground?

  2. Eliminate Common Core, make Public Employee unions illegal, and transfer education back to the States.

  3. Common Core – Sounds like a bad apple to me and I am sure just as useless.

  4. The college students in my college town are as dumb as a stone. The high school kids can’t do basic math. My son and I had lunch at a well-known restaurant. The cash register broke down. Our bill was $17.58. I gave the cashier $20. She couldn’t make change. She was a high school kid. She called her manager, a college kid. He couldn’t make change. They called a waitress. She couldn’t make change. I finally had to yell out, “2.42¢”. They didn’t believe me. I told them to keep the change and left. I told my kid, “If I ever find out you are that stupid, I’m sending you to Japan to get an education”. True story.

  5. She’s just figuring this out now??? She needs to be fired yesterday.

    $1 spent on a state level costs $10 if that same job is done on a federal level (Now imagine ‘world’ dollars – mostly US- sucked into the UN, you have no idea $$$).

    Consider the huge savings of tax dollars for needless federal dept. of education (and UN) pensions, infrastructure, support services etc., etc. if the states took back education and it’s lands, resources and everything else not ‘federally’ mandated by our Constitution and kick the UN the hell out of our country.

    Our (Bush/Clinton/Obama populated) federal government has been an accomplice/wedge for UN take over and control of the USA, our children’s education, our police departments, our lands, all our waters and our resources.

    Thank a teacher:

    Lunch Scholars

    While their USA counterpart public schools learn of condoms, queer sex and vibrators, Russian students are required to study ethics and morality.

    What the f*ck is wrong with our teachers and administrators? Nothing but useful idiots for the NWO globalists, great job so called ‘educators’, go give each other awards for excellence and cry for increased taxation for education and higher tuition … for the kids.

    According to the US Federal Obama populated Board of Education; our constitution is bad, conservative thinking is bad, our founding fathers are bad, math is consensus, sexual promiscuity and deviation is good and must be mandatory starting with pre-teens, the global warming scam must be pounded into students daily, religion is bad and has no place in school unless it’s Islam, our 2nd amendment and right to defend ourselves is bad, free liberal progressive speech is good, conservative speech is prohibited, open borders and overwhelming our hospitals and economic stability is good, encouraging students to leave school during class to protest in the streets with anarchist trouble makers and Marxist adults (and not having a clue why) is good.

    Educators or enemies (and we’re forced taxed to pay their salaries and their pensions) 

    What the hell has DeVos been doing for the last 3 years?
    This appalling crisis in our education system is a national emergency, DeVos needs to be fired. She needs to be fired yesterday.

  7. Intentional dumbing down. Just like with the boy scouts going LBGT and girl scouts now actively supporting late term abortion, it all starts with installing rabid ideological agenda driven left ‘progressives’ at the organization’s mast head, so it is with our Federal Dept. of Education and Soro’s and Gates funded teacher’s unions; ATF and NEA. Topple our great country from within (but into what?).

    Bill Gates and George Soros funding teachers unions (we know how they ‘love’ America)…

    Common Core: UNESCO and Bill Gates timeline to federalized …

    Apr 29, 2014 … 1990: George H. W. Bush signed an international agreement entitled, “World …. 2004- UNESCO “Cooperation Agreement” with Bill Gates.

    “Both Soros and his Open Society Foundations provide funding directly or indirectly to over 200 US organizations. Some he owns outright. As you read these, prepare to be shocked:”

    • American Federation of Teachers: After longtime AFT President Albert Shanker died in in 1997, he was succeeded by Sandra Feldman, who slowly “re-branded” the union, allying it with some of the most powerful left-wing elements of the New Labor Movement. When Feldman died in 2004, Edward McElroy took her place, followed by Randi Weingarten in 2008. All of them kept the union on the leftward course it had adopted in its post-Shanker period.

    REVEALED! Hundreds of George Soros owned organizations

    Since 1980, AFT and the NEA have contributed nearly $57.4 million to federal campaigns, an amount that is about 30 percent higher than any single corporation or other union. About 95 percent of political donations from teachers unions have gone to Democrats.[19] (other sources say 99%)

    In 2008, AFT provided a campaign contribution of $1,784,808.59 to Hillary Clinton and $1,997,375.00 to Barack Obama.[20]
    In July 2015, AFT endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race. Clinton and AFT president Randi Weingarten are longtime friends.

    – Where’s all that money coming from? It has received substantial grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, including to promote and assist in the implementation of the Common Core State Standards curriculum initiatives.[48] (and public sector union fees and, as NPR says, “from people like you”; your taxes)
    American Federation of Teachers (AFT) – Influence Watch


    Oh look, it’s the president of the American Federation of Teachers who does nothing but tweet leftist rhetoric taking a picture with an anti-Israel, pro-Shariah Law terrorist sympathizer….and she’s in charge of your children’s education, let that sink in. @realDonaldTrump


    In other words, ideology is injected into the educational system and is allowed to mutate freely from that point on. What it eventually becomes is of little consequence; the desired effect is for the reigning ideology to become destabilized. His point here is key to a successful ideological subversion: channeling a generation of malleable young minds through an educational system that inculcates the subversive ideology is a necessary component for the long-term normalization of the subversive ideology.

    “You will observe with concern how long a useful truth is known and exists, before it is generally received and practiced on.”
    -Benjamin Franklin

    “It is in the interest of Tyrants to reduce the people to Ignorance and
    Vice. For they cannot live in any Country where Virtue and Knowledge
    prevail. The religion and public Liberty of a People are intimately
    connected; their Interests are interwoven, they cannot subsist separately;
    and therefore they rise and fall together. For this Reason, it is always
    observable, that those who are combined to destroy the People’s Liberties,
    practice every Art to poison their Morals”. Sam Adams

  8. This is a dead horse we’ve been beating for half a century. I suspect we’ll beat it some more going forward, rather than understand that all children are not able to learn the same kinds of things. What good does it do to expect a child to compete with kids who are their superiors in academic aptitude? The primary rant repeated endlessly to such assertions are that they are racially motivated. Call it what you will, the reality is that we are doing nothing but frustrating kids of all races and their parents by expecting them to be what they are not. My own children are low-academic blue collar workers who make twice the salary I ever did. They are married, happy young people and I’m a proud grandfather. My wife and I decided early on that they were not academically bright bulbs and to steer them toward pursuits they could be successful at. They have no college education, which means they have had a better chance at their souls remaining intact, and they are debt free. Let’s put more money into early testing, followed by training opportunities in areas for which children show an aptitude.

  9. DeVos should have looked into it BEFORE allowing this UN mind warping program in the schools ! THAT was her job ! NOT after generations of minds have already been destroyed ! The kids themselves sent out that message at teh very beginning but no one listens to them or their parents who were all upset over this mind destroying mess ! SHE IS THE ONE WHO FAILED ! Anyone with half a brain could see this was a mind altering program to destory common sense (which apparently DeVos has none of), and to TWIST the minds of our children, and another OWG UN agenda AGAINST our kids ! Get the bloody UN (OWG) OUT of this land and out of our schools !
    I repeat =
    Get the bloody UN (OWG) OUT of this land and out of our schools ! This is part of the coup !
    Get our schools back to being AMERICAN SCHOOLS AGAIN and get all the Foreign OWG crap out of it !
    Islam is forbidden by LAW HERE IN THIS COUNTRY ! So this is Treason that DeVos has committed !

    • Thank you, EACH of you who took the time to respond about the article addressing Common Core. After years fighting and revealing this socialist global dumbing-down program unleashed in America’s educational system, I am heartened to see such strong responses against this global indoctrination – and worse! Your comments were delightful, and I am so grateful to EACH OF YOU for your time caring and sharing thoughts and concerns. Every parent with school-age children should be very concerned over the deliberate program in place to maliciously dumb-down are children, our hope for the future of our nation.
      Common Core is but one dimension to the multi-dimensional Agenda-21 program to unleash globalism unto America. Betsy DeVos was a supporter of Common Core prior to being named as Education Secretary. Fortunately she is submissive (cooperative) to the President who has publicly announced his strong opposition to Common Core. In point of fact, the President signed an Executive Order a good couple of months ago directing the Education Secretary to begin decreasing the size and scope of the Department of Education, returning said authorities and responsibilities to local, district, and State Boards of Education. As you might imagine, local and state boards are now racing around to determine what to do!? This is in itself funny since they were meant to be responsible directly for the educational welfare of the children under their charge. The President’s Executive Order has mandated a clear significant reduction in the Federal Department of Education by elections of 2020.
      Common Core is a poison that has decayed our children over the past thirty years (or more). The evidence is as how some of you stated in your responses below to the article posted, and again I thank you. Not being able to make change, not knowing how to spell or write, not knowing our country’s history, not knowing how to critical think or problem solve are signs of the decay that has besieged our children and young adults up to about 38 years of age. We are in real trouble as a nation that has been deliberately made uninformed. I pray parents, and citizens across our country, will stand up and voice their serious and legitimate concerns to their local school boards, and fight to do away with all the override elections schools love to throw at their respected districts for more money but not more correction of the educational drain that has occurred.
      Thank you all for your responses and well developed arguments. Thank you! ~LJR
