The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has a program called “Education for All” that includes the same people and same ideas as Common Core. The Global Fund for Education was formulated by the UN, “agreed to” by Barack Obama, funded by Bill Gates, and Common Core was imposed on the American people through Department of Education (DOE) funding schemes.
Before explaining Common Core, you must first understand that it is a part of the Agenda 21 program. In the Agenda 21 document chapter 36 is titled “Promoting education, public awareness and training”. This chapter goes on to explain how promoting education, public awareness and training, with focus on environmental education, is a critical theme both relevant to the implementation of the whole of Agenda 21 and indispensable for achieving sustainable development.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has a program called “Education for All” that includes the same people and same ideas as Common Core. The UNESCO goals and objectives for education are very similar to the Agenda 21 and Common Core goals and objectives.
During the 2008 Presidential campaign Barack Obama committed to making sure that every child has the chance to learn by creating a Global Fund for Education. This would require a new architecture of global cooperation that requires institutions to “combine the efficiency and capacity for action with inclusiveness.”
UNESCO’s educational goals and Common Core are both heavily funded by activist and philanthropist Bill Gates. So the Global Fund for Education was formulated by the UN, “agreed to” by Barack Obama, funded by Bill Gates, and Common Core was imposed on the American people through Department of Education (DOE) funding schemes that included “strings.” I say “agreed to” because the taxpayers never had a say, or vote, and neither did the 45 States who were essentially coerced into adopting by the president’s Race to the Top program, before Common Core was even defined, because they desperately wanted the federal funds that came with it. The “strings” were that it was a take it or leave it now proposition from the DOE — there was no time for analysis or evaluations. Just sign on now and accept your federal funds. 45 states did sign on, while Texas, Alaska, Virginia, and Nebraska declined. Minnesota did adopt the English standards but not the math standards.
Common Core promotes the “three E’s” of Agenda 21 — equity, economy and environment. These three E’s are integrated throughout the standards and intended to be taught in every class, including math. To be clear the real meaning of these three E’s is as follows: Equity means social equity or social justice, it does not equal justice. It means the “Common Good” — not individual rights. Economy means redistribution of wealth, global trade, and Public/Private Partnerships (PPPs). Environment means animals have equal rights or even more rights than humans. Nature or the environment is the central organizing principle for our economy and society.
We have established that the Common Core standards are derived from UNESCO and Agenda 21 goals and objectives, and that it has been accepted by 45 states. But does that mean Common Core is so entrenched in the US that it’s here to stay? Maybe not. Opposition to Common Core is growing daily.
