Where I can see a class using critical thinking skills to modernize the words, as to help them better understand the Amendments, giving an assignment to remove two then add two with little explanation as to why is upsetting,” she said. We know that teaching our children false principles – particularly those pertaining to Americans’ basic rights – is dangerous because it can make them less likely to realize and speak up when those rights are being violated in the future. If the Common Core curriculum promotes some of those false principles (whether purposefully or not), it is time to make some big changes – before it’s too late.
