Common Core Required Reading Features Pedophilia, Rape, Incest & Uses Vulgar Language…


Via Liberty Unyielding, more evidence that Common Core is awful (content warning):

Common Core us map

Last December, the: Newburgh (N.Y.) School District: yanked “Black Swan Green” from its ninth-grade reading list after outraged parents complained about a passage in which the 13-year-old narrator graphically describes his father’s genitals and a sex act.: The profanity in: “Every Little Hurricane”: is so extreme it would be out of place in a waterfront dive bar. And “The Bluest Eye,” taught in Grade 11, not only includes explicit depictions of pedophilia, rape, and incest but characterizes these acts variously as “friendly,” “innocent,” and “tender.”

So, in other words, Common Core interferes with the rights of parents, probably lowers the standards in schools, and isn’t supported by many outside of a few political and money power players…and now requires children to read material that is inappropriate for adults to consume.

Tell me again how great this program is?
