Common Core School Assignment: Was Holocaust Real or ‘Merely a Political Scheme?‘
The Rialto school district in California gave eighth graders an 18-page assignment that asked them to consider arguments on whether the Holocaust was an “actual event” or a “propaganda tool that was used for monetary gain.”
The project created media outrage, but the school district initially defended the assignment, saying that Common Core standards are intended to teach critical thinking. The school district, through interim superintendent Mohammad Z. Islam, revised its position when L.A.-based Anti-Defamation league expressed its concerns. “The assignment given to the eighth graders read:
“When tragic events occur in history, there is often debate about their actual existence. For example, some people claim the Holocaust is not an actual historical event, but instead is a propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain. Based upon your research on this issue, write an argumentative essay, utilizing cited textual evidence, in which you explain whether or not you believe the Holocaust was an actual event in history, or merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain. Remember to address counterclaims (rebuttals) to your stated claim. You are also required to use parenthetical (internal) citations and to provide a Works Cited page.” here
I’ve heard people I had respected, as Michelle Rhee, tout the greatness of Common Core. I’ve heard ‘mom and pops’ who have dealt with Common Core, recite their reason for objections, if not horror. Here’s an excellent example. What idiot does not know the Holocaust, perpetrated by the murderous Hitler, who exterminated millions of innocent Jews, was real? Liberal Common Core endorsers, evidently.
But that isn’t accurate. Most of the people probable know it was real but it doesn’t suite their ‘re-education’, indoctrination propagandist, so it’s changed. And be no fool — that is what Liberals have been and are doing.
Can you image the shock and revolution Jews students must listen to? All the while, the same C.C. paints a nasty picture of Christians ….and probably Jews. Islam is portray as the “religion of peace” (haha) and how they’re had their land stolen and been oh, so maligned. Really?
We can’t put up with this. Four and five states which orginally accepted Common Core have now kicked it to the roadside, where it belongs. All states must do so and do so quickly. We can’t allow the propagandize our children. We have way to many propagandize Liberal kids, who are now adults of voting age and part of the Democrat Party regime.
