Dr. David Pook, a professor at Granite State College, told the audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics that he helped write Common Core standards for English Language Arts in an effort to end “white privilege.”
“The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn.”
The audience reacts with gasps, boos, and sounds of disbelief before a panel member yells “Hey!” to hush them.
So Common Core has racial and gender-based motivations – coming from this Administration’s Department of Education, who could be surprised? Promoting division has been a common theme throughout this presidency.
