VIDEO: Fordham Institute Mocks Common Core Opponents

Recently I came across an interesting video shared by a Common Core Warrior on Facebook.  It shows the head of Thomas B. Fordham institute, an education think tank funded by Bill Gates, who is one of the organizations promoting Common Core making a pitch to Eli Broad for funding.

The video makes fun of Common Core opponents as “kooks” and, well, I really have nothing to say about it other than it’s utter nonsense and I can’t believe actual grown-ups do this kind of thing.

While visiting the Fordham’s YouTube channel I found another video poking at the We Will Not Conform event.

And these are the people who think they know what’s best for our kids’ education?

Watch this “pitch” and see if you aren’t left speechless, too.
