Common Core is the corporate establishment's attempt at coercing obedience and control into children's character while denying them an educational experience based on creativity and their innate capacities which require expert professional teachers. Of course expert professional teachers is something the corporate state would like to do without. CC micro-manages what teachers will do in the classroom. NO child will escape the fragmentation of the mind because they will be outside the decision making processes central to the experiences they will participate in. NO child will be able to engage in individual flights of development. The child's mind will be treated as a blank slate. The CC is totalitarianism and an attempt at soft control of the cognitive development of American children pure and simple.
