Textbook Exec Reveals Greedy Truth Behind Common Core: ‘It’s Never About the Kids’

Houghton-Mifflin West Coast sales manager Dianne Barrow made it a point to proclaim, “I hate kids.”

by Adan Salazar, Infowars:

“It’s never about the kids,” an executive for one of the largest Common Core textbook publishing companies admits in a recent undercover sting video released exclusively to Infowars.

“There’s always money in it,” according to Amelia Petties, Strategic Account Executive for Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt, who told undercover journalists with Project Veritas that rebranding Common Core would generate huge profits, kids be damned.

In the video, Petties claims the Common Core curriculum is here to stay, but that “slapping a new name on it” couldn’t hurt, “Because I can sell a shit ton of training around whatever you’re calling it.” When asked whether the quality of children’s lessons ever influence the sales of textbooks, Petties replies, “It’s never about the kids.”

Petties’ admission makes her the second Houghton Mifflin representative to be caught on tape admitting that profits trump their textbooks’ educational value.

On Tuesday, Project Veritas released another video exposing questionable comments made by Houghton-Mifflin West Coast sales manager Dianne Barrow, who made it a point to proclaim, “I hate kids.”

“I’m in it to sell books,” Barrow told undercover reporters. “Don’t even kid yourself for a heartbeat.”

“It’s all about the money,” she added. “What are you, crazy? It’s all about the money.”

    Its not about the kids is right.

    Unless they want to use them as Weapons of emotion,human shields,rituals and other hurtful,evil intent.Even then it still remains in no way ‘really for the children’
    It is only to further their agendas of evil intent.

    It’s not about people, period. Doesn’t matter how old they are. Nothing in this country has been done “for” people for so long, retirement homes are among the most horrible places I have ever seen (and investigated). I can’t count the number of times I went to some Healthsource or Genesis home and came out thinking: “I would never even put my dog in it!” Public schools have been sub-par for decades, franchised daycare are no more than training camps where toddlers are being farmed, brainwashed and taught: “If your mom or your dad is not nice to you, call 911!” Ohio started this year a brand new state mandated “common core”: kids no longer learn to write with paper and pencil”; they learn to type on am auto-correct keyboard. In 10 years, we’ll have a 50% dyslexia rate and absolute grammar impaired little robots.

    Intelligent parents sacrifice everything to put their kids in private schools without cafeteria and without “common core” or to home school them and stick with the 3 RRRs. Jails are not there to rehab people, psychiatric hospitals are terrifying and, despite the constant increase and renovation/modernization of regular hospitals, medical malpractice is through the roof.

    But… all of the above serve the best GMO food taxpayers’ money can buy!

    Excellent! People are not only waking up but also taking action.

    “Parents vow to pull their kids out of school or move to another state to avoid draconian vaccination mandates

    Prior to the bill’s passage, a number of California parents vowed to pull their children out of school if it was enacted. Dr. Robert Sears, a pediatrician from Capistrano Beach, told The Orange County Register following SB 277’s signing into law by Gov. Brown that he expects a huge exodus from the conventional education system as parents opposed to vaccines seek greener pastures.

    “[We] will see a big shift in children leaving schools for homeschooling,” stated Dr. Sears to the Register. “And families will group together in co-ops to educate their kids.”

    As an added benefit, these same children will avoid being brainwashed in California public schools, which the San Jose Mercury News reported back in 2013 rank the third-worst in the nation for both math and reading. Still, SB 277 represents nothing short of medical despotism, and its passage is likely to spur a whole new black market for forged and/or falsified vaccination records.

    Many Californians are also likely to flee the state entirely to places like Oregon, where public pressure blocked a similar bill, SB 442, from moving forward back in March.

    “Parents don’t like being told what to do, they don’t like feeling like their rights are stripped away,” stated Kimberly McCauley of the San Francisco Bay Area to “People are going to start moving away. [Gov. Brown] just screwed California. Single-handedly screwed California.”

    We shouldn’t underestimate the American people resilience…

    “The number of children being homeschooled in America has increased by 75 percent over the past 14 years in all states, according to a report in the online journal Education News. While only four percent of all school children nationwide are educated at home, “the number of primary school kids whose parents choose to forgo traditional education is growing seven times faster than the number of kids enrolling in K-12 every year,” the report noted.”
