In Response to Common Core Curriculum:
You want critical thinking? Here’s a concept. There are truths.
Objective and real.
3×4=12 and 2+2=4
The purpose of education? To seek truth. Sometimes the right answer is just the right answer.Math works that way.
What we need in our schools is an environment for learning.
Other than that i say pull your kids out of school and home school.
I used to say pull your kids out of the crappy schools and put them in good ones or home school,but now this Obama Math may be infecting all schools,even good Catholic schools.Why would you let the Obama administration even get a toe in the door? I think we have seen enough of their social experimentation on the country and their failed economic agenda. We’ve almost handed over our health care system to them.He [Obama]has a total of 3 more yr to do the total transformation of America;the cornerstone of his campaign.
Have you heard about the history books of late?
The textbook, World History, is published by Prentice Hall, which is owned by the company Pearson Education, and is used in 9th grades, not just in Florida, but in public school districts across the United States.
World History not only slights Christianity, although Western civilization is a Judeo-Christian civilization, the textbook clearly favors Islam both in the quantity of pages given to Islam, as well as its characterization of Islam and its founder.
- There is a 36-page chapter devoted to Islam, but there is no chapter on Christianity or Judaism.
- In that 36-page chapter on Islam, in reference to Mohammed spreading Islam with the sword, no mention is made of the tens of thousands of people who were massacred. Instead, the book says “people happily accepted Islam as their way of life.”
- Prentice Hall reportedly hired a Muslim cleric to write the chapter on Islam. On Amazon.com, a reviewer of the textbook, brian sanborn, identified the cleric to be Shabbir Mansouri, who wants sharia law for America.
- The book says Jesus “proclaimed” himself to be the Messiah, but states as fact that Mohammed was a prophet.
- Christian battles are called “massacres,” whereas Muslim battles are called “takeovers.”
- When someone contacted Pearson Education about the textbook, their spokeswoman Susan Aspey insisted that the textbook is not biased against Christianity and in favor of Islam. On the contrary, “a review of the book shows there is balanced attention to the beliefs of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity.”
