How refreshing it is to have one of Ohio’s [real] investigative journalists confirm what we have told you from the beginning:
WITHOUT FAIL, Common Core advocates are benefiting either politically or financially.
In one glorious report, Ben Swann, demonstrates the Common Core cronyism that takes place at the state level, as it does at the national level in order to saddle taxpayers with the RttT/Common Core boondoggle…
Tennessee recently made national headlines for a single city spending $5.2 million to align with the standards of Common Core.
“The new Common Core standards being implemented in states around the country are bringing unforeseen expenses to local districts, like a Tennessee city that had to borrow $5.2 million to buy iPads and laptops for kids as young as kindergarten,” reports Fox News.
…So, who exactly is pushing Common Core in the state of Tennessee? Perhaps one of the largest groups lobbying for Common Core in the state is the Ayers Foundation. Jim and Janet Ayers, founders of the organization, are extremely active in Tennessee politics.
…If Common Core is successfully implemented in Tennessee, the Ayers foundation is sure to prosper even more.
…Emails were recently discovered that show Janet Ayers lobbying the Tennessee state legislature to accept and institute Common Core in the state of Tennessee.
…You will notice in the addressee list state senator Jim Tracy (R). Tracy is running for US Congress in Tennessee’s 4th congressional district where he lives.
…As it turns out, Jim and Janet Ayers of some of senator Tracy’s largest donors. The both donated the maximum legal amount to Tracy’s campaign just 2 months before this email went out. (emphasis added).
Darn-near as damning as Michelle Malkin’s shredding of Jeb Bush and his Common Core cronies.
As we have cautioned you, don’t be fooled by self-styled conservatives who claim to want what’s best “for the children.”
