How much money are these schools getting for adopting common core?


I spoke with a teacher from Warren Co TN. and he said the county school system gets between 40-60% of its operating funds from the Feds. (depends on which programs you include in the operating budget) Warren co is all about gobbling up the Common core bait.

As usual follow the money.....
Where did common core come from?

Secretary Arne Duncan recently announced that $350 million of the stimulus package will be used –

“Think of that. $350 million from stimulus,” Pat said. “$200 million now from Gates. I don’t know how much from Yahoo [and Google]. But we’re easily close to 700 million right now. We might be close to a billion dollars.”


One of the aspects of Common Core that hasn’t been discussed at any great length is the idea of creating a new generation, a new work force that has been educated in a specific way.
GATES: — to create just these kinds of tests—next-generation assessments aligned to the common core. When the tests are aligned to the common standards, the curriculum will line up as well—and that will unleash powerful market forces in the service of better teaching.
