Letter to the Reader, December 13, 2012

Chapter 7 of Stanley Kurtz’s book, Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities, is entitled “Fooled, Ruled, and Schooled.” Here it is noted that there is an Obama goal of nationalizing the curriculum of the nation’s schools.

A Common Core of standards would be associated with a national curriculum. Complying with this would be required for obtaining Race to the Top grants.

The reaction of Jane Robbins to this in “’Incentives’ should not be used to advance national curriculumThe Hill, May 5, 2011, is mentioned in Spreading the Wealth, Chapter 7.

There is additional commentary by Kurtz in “Obama and Your Child’s MindNational Review Online, December 5, 2012.
