Here is a 32 second video of David Axelrod, Senior Advisor to President Obama introducing the actual architect and implementer of Common Core, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan at a 2013 discussion of the Common Core. Axelrod claims that Common Core is an Obama administration initiative. Secretary Duncan agrees with that claim.
North Dakota Superintendent of the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) Kirsten Baesler states that:
“Common Core is not “ObamaCore,” as some suggest. The truth is that the idea of Common Core State Standards was well underway before he took office in 2009.”
Bismarck School District states that:
“Myth: The Common Core is the federal takeover of education; it should be called Obamacore.
Truth: The Obama administration wasn’t involved in writing the Common Core, nor is it a federal mandate, though the President does support these standards.”
Is this a false flag deception by Superintendents Baesler and Uselman? Is the deception that all there is to Common Core is “the standards?” Why do the proponents never acknowledge the scope of the structure that the Obama administration required to be put in place for Common Core? That Obama did not write the Common Core Standards somehow only a supporter? Is this a purposeful, and with foreknowledge, deception?
