More On Common Core Undercover Videos

Yesterday I discussed a new set of undercover videos exposing the developers of Common Core educational materials and the publishers who will profit from them. It’s not really newsworthy that publishers are “in it for the money.” But James O’Keefe’s interview with a former executive of Pearson, the world’s largest publisher of educational materials, shows that the motivation behind Common Core is more devious than just making money.

Kim Koerber is a former executive with Pearson, and her interview, captured on tape, reveals a disturbing and radical left-wing agenda behind Common Core. Far more than making money, Pearson seems to want to change the entire history of America.

Koerber complained that “Texas is just unbelievably awful.” She said, “I did a presentation for AP US History and they wanted founders in it. They want to teach the Constitution. They want to talk about those dead white guys. You’re getting pushback because there’s Republican parents who are afraid of everything.” Koerber declared that “[those] dead white guys did not create this country.”

She further complained that too many people listen to the Fox News Channel. She also emphatically stated, “Damn the Second Amendment. I don’t think personal handguns need to be on anyone except the police. What is the purpose of having a gun?”

Koerber also explained that Islam is covered much more extensively (and favorably) than Christianity. Maybe that’s why some Georgia middle school students were taught that “Allah is the same God worshiped by Jews and Christians” and were penalized if they disagreed with that very controversial statement.
