David Coleman, the college board president with reported ties to Bill Ayers, who helped construct Common Core Language standards is calling low income family names- “low hanging fruit.”
Coleman doesn’t know why they’re called that but he’s happy to do it because it helps him to further the Common Core agenda.
In this video he explains why data was a big component of the Obama campaign and how this data gathered on low income folks galvanized a generation to go out and vote for Obama. Thank you Dan Wagner, the guy in charge of the data side for Obama’s campaign.
Maybe they were voting for handouts. Maybe they were voting for “compassion” that the left likes to put on display with their giant entitlement programs. We won’t go into how those entitlement programs actually keep people down rather than lifting them up. Compassion? I think not. Either way that “low hanging fruit” sure worked in their favor.
In this article it explains why Coleman thinks that the data gathered in education, especially low income people, will help to launch an initiative forward. The initiative, of course, being Common Core.
Coleman welcomed to the Common Core data collection initiative Barack Obama’s re-election team, Organizing for America (OFA), to develop its economic justice project, the Access to Rigor Campaign. This campaign is aimed at profiling students they referred to as “low-hanging fruit,” or low-income and Latino students in the K-12 educational system.
You really gotta love David Coleman. He’s unabashedly proclaiming the virtue of “caring adults” and how they use multitudes of data to “propel students forward.”
Seems like if a person wants to help a child that “caring adult” would be sufficient. Someone who cares. Not someone who is worshiping data and shoving the kid forward. Propelling the child into the future. I don’t know about you but the future looks a lot like a cliff to me.
