Crayola Common Core Lessons Promote Globalization and Interdependence


Go here for an important update to this post.

By Danette Clark

Crayola joins the list of big name education companies who have sold out our children and America to the United Nations’ global agenda.

Teaching children ‘to take action as global citizens’ in an ‘interdependent world’ and to ‘think about the world more holistically’ are the focus of Crayola lessons provided in partnership with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), one of the two main organizations responsible for the creation of the national Common Core State Standards.

Crayola, Lego Education, Apple, and Disney (among others), as members of P21 — Partnership for 21st Century Skills, entered into a ‘strategic partnership‘ with the Council of Chief State School Officers in 2010.

According to P21’s Executive Chair, Kathy Hurley, CCSSO and P21 work very closely on Common Core, as well as CSSO’s Next Generation Learner program, and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act re-authorization.

Hurley is also Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships for Pearson Education. Pearson, in partnership with CCSSO, has been instrumental in implementing Common Core in many states by providing resources and employing progressive educators, like Coalition of Essential Schools disciple Grant Wiggins, to provide professional development training.

The U.S. Department of Education hosted the launching of P21 and Crayola’s Champion Creatively Alive Children program in 2011.

Crayola lessons, like other Common Core material, are designed to create, in children’s minds, a specific and biased perspective of the world — globalization over national sovereignty, interdependence over self-reliance, and social and economic equity governed by a few over social and economic freedom governed by self.

Crayola-recommended resources promoting social justice, globalization, and the theory of global warming, are listed here along with writings by humanist Linda Darling-Hammond, CSCOPE’s Robert Marzano, and progressive Howard Gardner, also CES disciples.

Read more about CES (Coalition of Essential Schools) and Common Core at Unravelled! The 30 Year Agenda Behind Common Core and at the Common Core / CSCOPE / CES Connection page.

James Rubenstein’s anti-semitic book, The Cultural Landscape, is also listed as a Crayola Arts-Infused Education Resource.

Despite Arne Duncan’s denial that Common Core purposes a political agenda, the curriculum itself proves otherwise — that Common Core has everything to do with the political and global agenda of those who created it, and nothing to do with a sound education for the benefit of those being taught — our children.

Tennessee Tea Party Group Informing Local Parents About the Dangers of Common Core


By Danette Clark

The radicals behind progressive indoctrination in thousands of public, charter, and even Christian schools across the country, have gotten this far by being highly organized and united.

Please contact your local Tea Party to find out if they are already fighting to reverse your state’s adoption of the Common Core State Standards and get involved. If they aren’t, ask them to join you in the fight.

Most Tea Party groups are versed in the necessary process — dealing with local legislators, organizing, and alerting the media.

Members in several states are working to join all Tea Party groups within their state around this issue.

For example, Dickson County Tea Party/912 Project in Tennessee has teamed up with several local groups to educate parents about the agenda behind Common Core. They will hold an informational meeting this Thursday, April 4th at 7:00 pm at The Renaissance Center on Highway 46 South in Dickson.

In coming weeks, I will try to compose a list of groups across the country (not just Tea Party groups) that are already engaged in this fight and post as a resource for those of you looking for a group in your area.

As I wrote in Out Number and Drown Out Concerned Parents — Admitted Strategy of Liberal Indoctrinators, Theodore Sizer, the founder of the progressive education movement behind Common Core, admitted that even if parents are ’well orchestrated’ and ‘noisy’, it isn’t enough to make a difference.

The power is in numbers and organization.
