by Dr. Susan Berry, Breitbart:
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has excoriated groups of parents, teachers, and other citizens who oppose the Common Core standards, claiming the grassroots campaigns are being fueled by “far-right propaganda that relies heavily on distortions, outright falsehoods, and demonizing conspiracy theories promoted by anti-government extremists.”
The civil rights group has prepared a publication entitled, “Public Schools in the Crosshairs: Far-Right Propaganda and the Common Core State Standards,” in which it claims opponents to the nationalized standards are attempting to “derail this ambitious effort to lift student achievement and, more fundamentally, to undermine the very idea of public education.” SPLC’s paper states:
To the propaganda machine on the right, the Common Core—an effort driven by the states—is actually “Obamacore,” a nefarious federal plot to wrest control of education from local school systems and parents. Instead of the “death panels” of “Obamacare,” the fear is now “government indoctrination camps.”
