Common Core Awareness
Do you have concerns about the Common Core State Standards? Do you find it disturbing that the National Data Collection Model has recommended over 400 data points to be monitored on kids & their families, including health-care history, family income, & religious affiliation? Does the discussion of using data mining techniques, which include functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), Mood Meters, eye movement tracking, & smile intensity scoring, as outlined in the Department Of Education, Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance document from Feb 2013, leave you uneasy? Do you want to tell your friends about your concerns with Common Core, but need to have all the data quickly accessible? This app brings together a collection of the data gathered through hours of research, along with links to the source content, right at your fingertips.
The app contains information from sources showing how Common Core could:
-utilize data mining techniques
-utilize wearable sensors
-provide information on the supporters and funders of Common Core
-shift away from classic literature to nonfiction informational texts (example: recommended insulation manuals from the EPA)
-prevent changes or removal of subject matter from the standards; one may only supplement the common standards with additional standards, provided that the additional standards do not exceed 15% of the State's total standards for that content area
These citations have been collected from many Common Core information sources, and are now found here, in a single, easy to access smartphone app. This app can help anyone educate others about the concerning details of the Common Core State Standards.
If there is additional content that you'd like to see featured in this app, please send a request via the request page, so the data can be considered for inclusion.
Those who utilize this app are encouraged to do their own research, and draw their own conclusions.
