Today’s Fib-o-Meter will take a peek at how CCSS is being portrayed on social media. The way this will work is you’ll see the screen shot first, then the Fib-o-Meter’s revelation. Be sure to access the links used to back up each revelation.
Here’s a plug from the feds in D.C. about HR5 (Student Success Act).
Anita Hoge’s article gives you the “Total Truth”, however. See: http://www.newswithviews.com/Hoge/anita113.htm
Here’s another tweet from 4/23/15:
Here’s the link to the Pioneer paper. I’m with them..where are the hearings?
Achieve wants you to believe educators love CCSS:
Achieve, Inc. got this from a newspaper editorial out of TN. As of this writing, no comments have been made to the newspaper. If you have a few minutes, why not help the paper’s editor know the truth. See: http://www.decaturdaily.com/opinion/editorials/educators-stand-by-common-core/article_cabaef6b-89f5-5c26-b23e-f7b9b02df07a.html
FreedomWorks has a brand new short video explaining how the feds have taken over education. This is useful if you have someone who is new to the battle.
A well known anti CCSS spokesman’s “Total Truth”:
Here’s the link to the article Mr. McCluskey was referring to: http://edsource.org/2015/federal-after-school-funding-preserved-for-now/78161#.VTlJwSFVikp
Here’s a teaser for the article featuring Sec. Duncan:
The “Total Fallacy” doesn’t show up in the tweet, you have to get to the article. What’s the fib? That all the protesting is hysteria. See: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/01/18/ohio-gov-kasich-common-core-resistance-is-hysteria/
Here, Duncan plays the ‘racist’ card for CCSS and its assessments:
Here’s the link to the article where it is revealed how this isn’t the first time Sec. Duncan has cried ‘racism’ when it comes to CCSS: http://libertyunyielding.com/2015/04/23/education-secretary-opting-out-of-common-core-is-a-white-thing-and-therefore-racist/
Have you spotted a CCSS “Total Truth” or “Total Fallacy” in your area? I’d love to know what it is. Please consider posting it in the comments. Remember, it could be about any aspect of the CCSS Machine. From nursery school to career, P3s (public, private partnerships), school boards, and chambers of commerce. Legislation would be a great Fib-o-Meter topic, too! Let me know what’s out there. Together, we can expose it and hold those in charge accountable.
