Dear Common Core Curriculum Commissariat and Ministry of Truth: by Robert Shepherd

 

From Robert Shepherd via Diane Ravitch’s blog…..

Dear Common Core Curriculum Commissariat and Ministry of Truth:

Orwell did not mean for 1984 to be a public policy manual.

Democracy might be dead in the United States, but we intend to resurrect it.

We see through your Doublespeak.

We will resist your Philistine technocratic vision of the future.

We will resist standardization.

We will resist your fascist mandates.

We will call upon others to do so as well.

We will tell them to opt their children out of your data machine and to ignore your bullet lists of what is and is not acceptable for teachers to teach and students to learn.

We do not accept regulation of our freedom of thought. We utterly and completely reject that.

We do not accept your authority.

We will organize.

We will speak truth to power.

We will practice civil disobedience.

We will opt out.

We will not look kindly upon those who collaborate with you to usurp the autonomy of teachers and learners.

We will not feed our kids to your data maw.
