We recently reported that anarchitect of the new federal education program Common Core Architect admitted partnership with the Obama campaign team.

This may readily explain a Hillsdale college professor’s devastating assessment of its quality.

A Hillsdale College professor has penned a book he hopes will serve as a user’s guide for parents, citizens, and state lawmakers to help them fully grasp what will actually happen in classrooms where the Common Core standards are being implemented—and how this initiative will only hasten the full decline of our schools.

Dr. Terrence Moore—author, historian, teacher, and former U.S. Marine lieutenant—argues there is an urgent need for parents, taxpayers, and state legislatures to defeat the Common Core initiative. In his book The Story-Killers: A Common-Sense Case Against the Common Core, Moore takes parents, especially those who may know little about the standards, through a hypothetical school district and into classrooms, demonstrating how the Common Core will put a nail in the coffin of the already suffering progressive education system many Americans have simply come to accept.

In an interview with Breitbart News, Moore illuminated the hidden agenda behind the Common Core initiative, particularly its drive to remove classical literature from schools and replace it with “informational texts,” a move, he said, that will make children superficial and biased in their thinking.

“Literature is about living people,” Moore said. “Too many people in education already don’t truly love literature. It’s not even called ‘literature’ anymore. Now we call it ‘English Language Arts.’ And, with Common Core, we are moving even further away from real life, to a more ‘informational’ and artificial way of living.”

“Nobody really cares about Jane Austen when everyone’s worried about the 21st century global economy,” Moore added, noting that children will lose a sense of deeper, personal relationships with others if they are encouraged, in school, just to skim significant literature while they devote much of their time to “information.”

Moore notes the bias in the Common Core standards, evidenced by the lack of literary works inspired by religion. “It’s not till you start asking questions about what’s not in the standards that you realize the bias,” he said. “The texts from the standards are superficial, politically biased, and embarrassingly dumb.”

As for lesson plans that are “aligned” with the standards, Moore said, “Common Core proponents say school districts and states can come up with their own curricula, but then when they’re pressed for time, they throw up their hands and then in comes Prentice Hall with its ready-to-use Common Core curriculum.”
