Common Core conspiracy

To the editor:

In 1903 John D. Rockefeller and John Dewey formed the General Education Board for our present public educational system. It was formed, in my opinion, to incrementally, over time to dumb-down the general public into obedient sheeple, and not to be educated into independent thinking people questioning and searching for facts. The U.N. Agenda 21 Common Core worldwide education program is the final step for this purpose, to discourage and defeat children at the beginning of their learning. Here is the mission statement of the 1903 General Education Board: In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding We hands. The present educational conventions of intellectual and character education will fade from our minds and unhampered by tradition, we work our own will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk. We shall not try to make these people philosophers, or men of learning, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets, men of letters. We shall not search for artists, painters, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesman, we have an ample supply. Happily their dreams have not come true with rural folk!
