Public School ‘Common Core’ Recommends Pedophilia, Rape, Incest

Have you heard of the Common Core State Standards Initiative?  Commonly referred to as just the ‘Common Core’, it is a nationally standardized educational program developed by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers.  According to their official website:

“The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”

To date, 45 states and the District of Columbia have adopted part or all of the Common Core standards for their public schools.  The goal is try to get public education somewhat standardized throughout the US so that students graduating from one state will have the same general educational background as students from other states when attending college or entering the workforce.

The Common Core is divided into two sections: math and English language arts.  In the English language arts standards, Common Core lists recommended reading materials supposedly appropriate for each grade level and you may be surprised and even shocked to learn what they are recommending to your kids to read.

For 11th graders, a book on the exemplar reading list is a 1970 novel by Toni Morrison titled ‘The Bluest Eye.’  The book was written from the point of view of a person who rapes, commits incest and commits pedophilia by preying on young girls.  The book is very detailed and explicit and the kind of book that belongs in an adult store rather than in the hands of impressionable high schools in the throes of raging hormones.  From the excerpts I saw, it makes Lady Chatterley look tame and mild.  There is nothing redeeming from the excerpts I saw and would only incite young readers to emulate what they read.

The author purposely wrote the book in such a way as to make the reader see themselves as a co-conspirator with the rapist.  She also portrayed the actions in such a way as make them justifiable, at least in the eyes of the rapist pedophile.  Morrison depicts the rape, incest and pedophilia as being ‘friendly,’ ‘innocent,’ and ‘tender.’

I ask you parents, is this what you want your kids reading and learning?  This is just one of who knows how many other questionable books they recommend.  Recall that the Common Core says that it was designed to help students learn what they needed to learn to prepare them for college and the workforce.  Is this the type of preparation you want them learning?  Is this what you want your kids to take with them when they go off to college or get a job?

Now I ask you parents if you know whether or not the public school that your kids attend is using Common Core Standards?  It might not be your kids that are turned into a perverted sexual predator, but they may become the victim of one thanks to the Common Core Standards being used across the nation.  Do you really want some 15 year old boy who is driven more by his hormones than his brain to read about the joys and pleasures of raping young girls and committing incest?  Worse yet, do you trust your daughters going to school with this boy?

If you don’t want that to happen, then you have to take action to prevent it.  I can’t urge you strongly enough to check out just what they are teaching your kids and what kind of reading materials they are promoting.

    This explains a lot. Test score are down since the creation of the Dept of Education, young people can not write or even read cursive today. They do teach them to write their names so they don't have to put an "X" on contracts they may enter into. What a joke!

    • Alice

      You can't read the Constitution, Declaration of Independence or many other great writings of our country and other nations without being able to write or read cursive. For some people, they could not read what past family members left written in notes, letters to other family members.

      If cursive is not taught, then people will not understand what these documents meant.

      It IS about having control of the people.

  • CenTEx

    God Bless Texas for NOT adopting the common core standards of the Federal Government (as well as Nebraska, Minnesota, Virginia, Alaska and Puerto Rico). These are the last bastions of freedom in education. Come on down! We'll treat you right!

  • RCHGUNS

    Our public school systems have long ago stopped being places of education. The Social Progressive Movement have taken a page out of the "how to book" on how to destroy a free nation and how to control the future of that nation. Karl Marx, Stalin, Mao, and every other tinpot dictator gained power by using the philosophy set down by such a book. The Golden rule if you were CONTROL OF SCHOOLS AND YOU CONTROL THE FUTURE. CREATE THE PERFECT CITIZEN THROUGH INDOCTRINATION THAT IS NOW RAMPANT IN OUR SCHOOL SYSTEMS. Our schools are no longer places of education but nothing more than indoctrination day camps.

  • Devi

    Dave Jolly, you are a bloody moron. Do you have an editor? You need a babysitter. you obviously haven't read the book but are spouting your dumb opinion. I teach this book on the college level. It is also appropriate for 12 grade. The tragedy of the book is the rape of the young girl by her father, told by a narrator, also a young girl, totally unsympathetic to the rapist, NOT the rapist. Readers get fully involved with the horror of having a father who doesn't understand the nature of his "tender" feelings about his daughter and ,makes his version of love to her. it doesn't exonerate him at all. The mother of this girl is a monster with no mother love or even husband love, and the girl who is raped goes mad as a result (also caused by other issues--read the book) I have a phd in English. In my opinion, this is the second best novel written. First is Moby Dick. You don't just mention this inaccurate information, but continue to spout point and counterpoint. You should be ashamed of yourself for writing authoritatively about something about which you know squat. You're the kind of a""hole who gives conservatives a bad reputation. The common core IS a disaster, but not for the reasons you state.

    • Clay

      Doesn't sound appropriate for grade 12, even your description of it. Moby Dick? You have got to be kidding. Herman Melville was one of the worst writers ever. Yeah, he's right up there with Andy Warhol when it comes to the arts. Your credentials are NOT impressive. I only knew one Professor that allowed thinking, the rest of you pukes indoctrinate.

      • Jeff Dixon

        Hypocrisy is always amusing. One of the criticisms of the bible is that it is filled with stories of violence. Rape, murder and incest is in the bible. Defenders of the bible state that the stories in the bible simply reflect real life.

        Now, I have not read the book being discussed, so I am not going to offer an opinion on it. But given how many Christians think the bible should be used in schools, the double standard is outrageous.

      • Gene Poole

        Melville? Tell us how you feel about Hawthorne, James, Crane, Fitzgerald, West, O'Connor, Welty, and Hemingway. We'd love to hear it.

        • John

          Clay probably thinks Moby Dick is a venereal disease.

    • Ron

      Good on ya, Clay! Devi considers herself an academic elite who looks down on anyone with common sense or who supports a modicum of decency in teaching our children. The world is packed full of vile characters and immoral behavior....why the great rush to expose the dark, seamy side of society to school children. Oh, I forgot...it's what we do in our government schools. How about teaching something uplifting and motivational? I know, there's nothing like that on the Left.

      • adele

        Good for you!!! It is an amazing book and Dave JOlly obviously did not read it at all! I can read all the excerpts i want, does not mean i read or understand the book. My fourth grader read To Kill a Mockingbird over the summer and has read Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, not one of which is supported through school districts here. I have always believed that education starts at home and school is an off shoot of that.

    • TRUTHisABSOLUTE

      Why "Devi," what impressive credentials, and such exemplary use of the english language.

      Please tell us where you teach?
      We would like to know.

    • Anne

      I would not want my 12th grader reading that kind of book, even as you describe it.

      • USCitizen12thGeneration

        Today's youth are exposed to what is in that book on a daily basis... This nation rewards illegitimacy...and welcomes illegals who live to love to hate our nation bringing in gangs, drugs, diseases yet undiscovered. Babies are born out of the sex act: more than to committed man and wife with love to share 24/7 to nurture a newborn to become a productive human being having had a childhood with security and love and guidance... This is a nation disposing of US Military on 200 nations soil while we have open borders criminal illegal aliens welcomed: and our own US Citizens of Generations as taxpayers diminishing along with our foundations of which generations have worked to pass on to us being given away and destroyed. The news priority to have a HOMO pictured daily or HOLLYWOOD births...to unmarried..on and on...wars for defense contracts undeclared. Family honor killings on USA soil...Meanwhile the so-called Christians sit in church on Sunday and do nothing...but maintain their safety defending nothing..White guilt lever pullers not once but twice proclaiming the Anti-Christ in the White House...giving away what remains of the USA...Dial#2 for Spanish

    • CatheTenorio

      I read this book at the college level and as a past educator it would not something I would recommend at a high school level.

    • Bobseeks

      Like we should believe what a lazy, greedy, member of the unionized, liberal mis-education establishment says about anything? You are nothing more than a liberal-fascist stooge trying to indoctrinate our children with liberal lies.

    • RickG

      I have not read the book and don't intend to. That being said, whether what you say is true or not, why push it when there are so many other wonderful books that are not filled with rape, incest and other deranged subjects? That is not a topic I want the school introducing to my children, thank you! How about this for required reading: biographies of the founding fathers and their writings!

    • Pat

      This is definitely Morrison's greatest, if she can have a greatest.

    Greetings,
    As each of you begin a new school year, those of us who have the privilege of serving your district are looking to new beginnings as well. We are happy to announce that the Texas Curriculum Management Program Cooperative (TCMPC) will no longer be referring to the curriculum management system we offer as CSCOPE.
    Starting August 30, it will be referred to as the TEKS Resource System. We believe this new name will better reflect our mission, our service, and will help all parties involved move forward in a positive way.
    TEKS Resource System is just that, a resource. It will still have all of the components and options you have enjoyed in the past and any material that you have developed within the old site will automatically be transferred to the new site. You will also be able to continue using your current username and password. However, as we have stated previously there will be no sample lessons provided within the system. Any instructional content within the site will need to be uploaded by the user and the user will be responsible for its content.
    It is also important to note that the homepage is changing. Beginning September 1, going to http://www.mycscope.us will redirect you to the new site: http://www.TEKSResourceSystem.net. Additionally, if parents or community members have questions about what system you are using, we will also be providing a public site to replace http://www.cscope.us. More information on the public site will be forthcoming. The TCMPC will be working diligently to ensure that these sites provide information that will be beneficial to your district and we welcome feedback on how we can continue to improve the site for users and visitors.
    We look forward to continuing to serve you and to providing a resource that assists your district in implementing standards adopted by the State Board of Education. We hope you enjoy the TEKS Resource System.
    Sincerely,
    Jerry Maze, Ed.D.
    Chair Texas Curriculum Management Program Cooperative

    Devi, have you read all novels? This perverse hack of a novel is on he scrap heap of literature. Second best ever written? I have taught English and creative writing for 36 years. I would not include that book on any respectable reading list. You, Devi, are the true moron and should be terminated-if you really do "teach".

  • Greg B

    What sane teacher would consider a book about incestuous rape to be appropriate for any student? There are so many well-written, inspiring novels out there. Why this obscure, semi-pornographic one?

  • USCitizen12thGeneration

    Young people have enough to deal with...how many are shot walking home from baseball practice or in Tomball Texas a few years ago two illegal Mexican kidnapped, raped a HS student...then the Superintendent dare proclaim "our schools are safe!" That is what the majority of educators and self perpetuating bureaucrats do: coverup while they are retired-on-the J-O-B...while l0% knock themselves out doing all possible ...to educate and make the world a better place..

  • keith j

    Typical required reading of the 'indoctrinated" youth. What else can one expect from critical, progressive, thinking skills?

    • bill

      Glad to see the responses to this

      • Gene Poole

        Don't mention it. They're all paid for. And whoever's paying sure ain't getting his money's worth. Talk about retired-on-the-job. In actual fact, acting stupid takes a lot of smarts. Actually being stupid just won't cut it. And therein lies the tragic irony of the organized Right.

        • Donna

          I am so glad my 2 children have finished school. I would not want them being taught something like this by someone who thinks he is a teacher. As a teacher this one recommending should garbage should have his teaching credentials taken away and the same for anyone else out there being paid to poison the minds of our children......
