Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

Staci Burk on Facebook 4-5-14

The past few weeks some districts have been implementing PARRC field testing (see link below). Some districts have not been successful because they do not have the proper and latest version of Windows. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation donated so much money to implement the common core standards, maybe they should front all districts the latest version of Windows. Or get out of profiting on what should be a conflict of interest.

Isn't it just too bad that it just wasn't working out on MAC systems (see link - Discontinued support for Mac OS 10.5 due to multimedia incompatibilities)? I bet they say aww we tried, it just didn't work... sarcasm intended. But good news if districts have the latest version of Windows it will work. Pay no attention to the fact that the Gates Foundation is behind common core (A.K.A. Arizona College And Career Ready Standards)http://www.parcconline.org/.../Technology-Guidelines-for...

PLEASE NOTE: Technology Guidelines for PARCC Assessments v 4.0 updates, and therefore supersedes, the
Version 3.0 document previously released in September 2013.

Updates in Version 4.0 include:
 Final device and browser specifications for the Spring 2014 Field Test
o Discontinued support for Mac OS 10.5 due to multimedia incompatibilities
o Chrome OS version 33 requirements
o Windows 8 tablet requirements
 Requirements for Chromebook and iPad secure TestNav applications
 Updated table of accessibility features and accommodations enabled for computer-based
test administration of the PARCC Field Test
 Updated firewall and security guidance
 Reorganization of this document by Operating System

(EAN Editor's note: Isn't it also a coincidence that:

On Nov. 17, 2004, at UNESCO's headquarters in Paris, UNESCO signed a 26-page "Cooperation Agreement" with Microsoft Corp. to develop a "master curriculum (syllabus)" for teacher training in information technologies based on standards, guidelines, benchmarks and assessment techniques. The Agreement states that the syllabus will "form the basis for deriving training content to be delivered to teachers," and "UNESCO will explore how to facilitate content development."
Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates initialed every page in his own handwriting.

Here is the agreement:

I'm a little late to the party, so excuse me. But I was under the impression MAC was preferred over the years by educators. Hmmm...so is Common Core Bill Gates's way of breaking up MAC's party?

Bill Gates IS Common Core: 

STUNNING REVELATION BILL GATES HAS SPENT $2.3 BILLION ON COMMON CORE

Bill Gates wants to control education WORLD WIDE or at least get his hands on as big a piece of the pie as possible.

Control the kids, control the power and the money.

As bad as the greed and govt/corporate complicit corruption are, and they are even more obviously sickening considering the information you have supplied, I am unable to accept that money is the ultimate motivator in CC. Sadly we are under the boots of the omnipotent moral busybodies. I do use the term moral loosely though.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis

Money AND control. Gates is an international socialist in his ideology. He is pursuing his ideology AND riches. If it were ONLY riches he would be easier to deal with. He believes in what he is doing and he also believes that he deserves to get rich pursuing what he believes in. At least, that's what i believe.
