Remember this Gilbert Watch post? Common Core Presentation in New York.
Remember this statement?
"In the first 5 minutes of this excellent video you will learn about the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is taught in the 5th grade. It is a 6-8 week class. How much time is spent studying the United States Constitution? Two days in the 4th grade. In Common Core, children are taught that their ‘rights’ include being given a certain standard of living, housing, clothing, and medical care. There is no Second Amendment right. They are further taught that the Bill of Rights is an outdated, discriminatory document. The U.S. Bill of Rights came into effect in 1791, but excluded women, people of color, and members of certain social, religious, economic, and political groups."
Common Core is a monster that, as a youngster, lived in the shadows. Early in its infancy, there were people who recognized its features. Jane Robbins, J.D., Senior Fellow of the American Principles Project, is one of those people As Common Core grows larger, the reality of its ugliness is beginning to replicate in some very odd places. Still, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal ignores it.
I just spotted a post on S.H.I.E.L.D. titled "Ford Motor Company Middle/High School Essay Contest on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
Below is the link to the contest details, the essay winners, and you can even download your very own copy of the UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights). You might as well study it, because your kids will be learning all about it very soon. They will be informing you of their Rights. Not only are these "rights" an insult to every American who has fought for our great nation, the writing is dull, witless, vapid, and trite.
Of course it isn’t "binding." Rather, it is but a seed that is planted in your child’s brain, to grow and develop.
I’ll take the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Those are the most elegantly crafted, most meaningful documents to ever come out of a "committee" that I have ever seen.
