Watch student decimate Common Core: Founding Fathers ‘turning in their graves’

[sharenow]

A Tennessee high school student spoke from personal experience when he gave a highly critical speech on on the Common Core curriculum at a Knox County School Board meeting earlier this month.

The initiative “seemed to spring from states,” and it was developed by educational testing executives and only two academic content specialists, neither of which approved the final standards, Ethan Young, a senior at Farragut High School, said in the recorded speech, according to The Daily Caller.

“I mean, how convenient calculating who knows what, and who needs what,” Young said. “I mean, why don’t we manufacture robots instead of students?”

A “standards-based education,” Young said, is ruling the way teachers are teaching and students are learning.

“If everything I learned in high school was a measurable objective, I haven’t learned anything,” he said.

“Somewhere, our Founding Fathers are turning in their graves, pleading, screaming and trying to say to us, that we teach to free minds.”
