SAT conspiracy?

Life is about power. Power gives you control and the ability to control others. In the United States, we have this problem in Washington as well as our educational system. None of these people truly care about people. It is about power. With power comes an agenda or ideology that is to be implemented. The SAT change looks to be about that.

The architect of the horrible Common Core is now in charge of the SAT. Just think about this statement for a minute. I need not go further.

As I reviewed the the new changes to the SAT, it become obvious how much of this was a joke. One section was testing the student’s knowledge of our government. On the surface this is not a problem. What does knowing our government have to do with our entrance to a university? It is conceivable as student can attend a college for four years and never utilize this information the SAT believes to be very important. I did it. I went to school never dealing with our government. It is very likely my children will never deal with this. How can you justify this as a requirement for entrance to a school?

Modern words are supposed to be used on the SAT. What does this mean? If anyone observant enough would stop and look. Different groups of people use different words. The more educated you are the more complex the words used. Job specific individuals use different words than other groups. Those who read will have a higher vocabulary use and knowledge. The “obscure” words are still used in society today. Why are we moving to a “modern” terminology? Well, Common Core would not have you read the classics. Modern literature is now emphasized. I don’t necessarily have an issue with modern literature but the classics is some of the most beautiful literature. Read Moby Dick and learn about whaling. Yes, the words used are out of date, but you are learning some history.

The SAT will become unfair to anyone not utilizing Common Core. This is an attempt to FORCE implementation on American citizens whether they want it or not. The majority of our population is blind to this. They will willingly follow the lead cattle to slaughter.

I believe this new SAT change is not only a dumbing down but also a conspiracy to force Common Core implementation. I doubt our universities will recognize or doing anything about this. Education has become a big business and a propaganda machine. Politicians will panic and go along with the Common Core. The public will follow, too. We react not to logic and facts but to emotion. “I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.” This hated author understood people.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I had no idea and have not seen it mentioned thus far. But it does the follow the “logic” of Common Core so it doesn’t surprise. Terrifies me though.

      Research Common Core for where you live. I want you and everyone else to research and see for yourselves what is going on.

        I did actually look at them about a month ago to see what my 4 year old would be expected to know by kindergarten and to my shock discovered she was almost done with the 1st grade curriculum. My daughter is smart, but this is far below what I was doing at that age. More importantly the wording, “teaching children to compete in a global economy”. What is that about? I went from looking for a good preschool to being a homeschooler in a month of research. I didn’t know what else to do.

        As long as you are comfortable, homeschooling is a great option. Good luck with homeschooling.
        It is my belief the Common Core is about control. Ideally it would be nice if we could use a true common curriculum, but this is impossible. We learn differently and at different rates. Also, a variety of education is provides the opportunity for us discover new learning when we meet people who have learned different material than we have. How nice is it to learn about the book “Black Like Me” or “Grapes of Wrath” when you have never been exposed. There is such a diversity of literature to learn.
