'Story- Killers' lecture describes how Common Core destroys minds and souls

In a lecture given January 9, 2014, Hillsdale College professor and columnist Terrance Moore, author of the book "The Story-Killers: A Common Sense Case Against the Common Core", spoke out about how Common Core destroys minds and souls. The lecture was part of the AWC Family Foundation Lecture Series and was given at Hillsdale College's Kirby Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C. The speech will soon be part of the lecture series archives.

Dr. Moore's argument is that Common Core English standards, nationalize and standardize superficiality and political bias. The great stories of American history that have inspired past generations to innovation, exploration and high personal standards are being watered down or eliminated from the new curriculum. He is greatly concerned by the hidden agenda behind this nation-wide reform and the lack of local control over education that will result.

Common Core is a national set of curriculum standards that have been accepted by over 40 states. Race to the Top grant monies were tied to a state's acceptance of Common Core standards and testing, so most states quickly reached out for the funds. Resistance began when parents and others began examining the proposed curriculum materials more closely. The data mining that is set to accompany the new standards has also raised red flags across the nation. Over 400 points of information about individual students is planned to be collected by inBloom and other companies.

"The Story-Killers" is available through Amazon.
