Is the controversial American school reform known as #Commoncore simply the latest iteration in corporate America's design to make Americans more ignorant and compliant?

What is the real function of our public education system and how has it been co-opted by large corporations and politicians to produce the kinds of people they need in order to maintain the status quo?  Are parents losing the battle to educate their own children?

Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt is an educational insider, a policy influencer who served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first term of U.S. President Ronald Reagan.    

Iserbyt is best known for writing the book #The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America an eye-opening revelation of the changes gradually brought into the American public education system designed to eliminate parental, religious, and other influences, and mold the child into amember of the proletariat in preparation for the socialist-collectivist world of the future.

Iserbyt maintains that all so-called school reforms originate from a master plan formulared by Andrew Carnegie's Foundation for the Advancement of Education and Rockefeller's General Education Board. 

According to Iserbyt, Common Core is simply the latest version of these corporate driven initiatives aimed at influencing and shaping society rather than encouraging intellectual curiousity, creativity, and true learning.

Iserbyt's findings, while they remain controversial, still provide lots of food for thought as we examine the role of public education in American society and how best to educate our children.
