The Conspiracy that is not a Theory – What the Overwhelming Evidence Reveals

Crazy Normal - the Classroom Exposé

There is the court of law, an arm of the judicial branch of government that hears cases and administers justice based on statutes of common law, and then there is the court-of-public-opinion usually driven—right or wrong—by emotion without the kind of evidence that might lead to a conviction in a court with a judge and a possible jury.

Then there is Mercedes K. Schneider’s “Common Core Dilemma – Who Owns Our Schools?

CC book cover

After I received the paperback copy that the author’s editor mailed to me for my honest review, I lost sleep for the first few nights that I was reading the book because of a sense of helplessness that there was little I could do so stop the horrible crimes being perpetrated on millions of teachers and more than 50 million children in the United States.

About a third of the way through the book, I asked…

  1. Lloyd, sorry, I meant there WAS a conspiracy, I forgot to add it was not a theory. I was involved in grading papers for a large organization a few years ago and I discovered while grading that many of the students were illiterate and the papers clearly should not be “passed”. The instructions for grading were incomprehensible. Grammar, spelling, understanding, essay writing skills etc. are either correct and creative or they are not. I told the people in charge of the testing that I could not, in good conscience, pass most of the students. They told me I did not understand that all the students needed to pass and there was a method to make this possible. I saw there was something wrong and those kids were going to hit the wall in college and did not belong in college. I have tutored college students and if they are Indian they know their stuff. The Americans I tutored were not motivated, did not have the funds to continue remedial teaching, and were few. I stopped tutoring. Previously, while in graduate school I worked as a substitute and discovered that the schools were chaotic and I was not able to teach but only be a policeman of sorts. I stopped substituting. I find it interesting that the Gates Foundation is among the people advocating this dumbing down of US student content. The Gates charitable giving includes giving to Monsanto, the notorious “Round Up Ready” gang who are destroying the base of seeds available for crops. The seeds do not last and are in an intricate system with the pesticide Round Up that is a sort of napalm and wreaks havoc with its GMO seeds. They are doing this to stop world hunger. Many third world farmers have died from exposure to the pesticide and in the US they get away with avoiding telling consumers that the crops are genetically modified. I am an avid label reader. I asked myself why Gates, who is not a stupid man, would involve himself in this abomination. Have you heard of a book called “Tragedy and Hope”? I see people feeding their children “nuggets” a food my husband once let our Doberman sample. He promptly vomited. I hate to go from one subject to another, but everywhere you look there is debasing of our culture. We are free to marry people of the same sex but not to get a good education or one proper for a person – as your video said not everyone wants to go to or belongs in college. So let’s just bring it down to the level where it is meaningless. With children being abused sexually, fed valueless foods, watching witless shows like the Kardashians, men turning into women and vice versa………………….how is a kid stable enough to study and learn to think for themselves. Get rid of all the intellectuals and there is much less resistance to the disappearance of America as it was conceived. Sorry, it took me a bit to get to this, but I did want to thank you for your paper and videos on this subject. I do not care if you publish this. It is the elephant in the room.

    Lloyd I know it is not a conspiracy. I will read this in the morning and thank you for it. Bless your sleep and all of ours MJ Date: Thu, 9 Jul 2015 00:11:46 +0000 To: jjanine@live.com

    • Thank you.

      I’m aware of what your are talking about. But I wasn’t always aware. After I became a vegan for health reasons in 1981-82, I wanted to know why my health had improved so dramatically within a few months of giving up the average American fast food, sugar-saturated diet. I even dropped from 215 pounds down to 165 and then eventually leveled off at 180 (give or take a pound or two) for decades. Along the path of discovery, I realized that reading goes far beyond just entertaining yourself with fiction. In addition, earning a BA in journalism taught me to never trust what you hear, see or read in the media. The media isn’t into being honest and informative. It’s into making a profit.

      That might explain why I drink mostly distilled water and eat a diet that is whole food and organic. My VA doctor, before he retired, told me that 80% of men my age are taking two or more medications. I take none, but I’m still getting old. After the age of 55, our body starts to die in a serious way and a healthy lifestyle only gives us better health longer before the inevitable arrives with that last breath and beat of our heart.

      And I don’t watch TV shows. If I want to watch something, I buy it on DVD and avoid crap like the Kardashians [I don’t care if I spelled the previous word wrong :o)]. I’ve never seen even one of those so called (scripted) reality shows.

      I read labels too and in restaurants I ask a lot of questions—so many that sometimes I refuse to eat in a restaurant even after my questions are answered.

    • How do you know? Have you read the book? I have and the evidence trail I read says the Common Core agenda and its high stakes testing is a conspiracy.

      Definition for conspiracy: a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful; the action of plotting or conspiring; an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot; any concurrence in action; combination in bringing about a given result.

      After reading the book (in addition to other books and articles on this issue), I think that most of that definition describes what’s been taking place in the Education RheeForm Wars.
