Obama ‘Education’ Secretary: If Parents Opt Out of Common Core, Feds Will Force Them Back In

So, if you parents think that you have some measure of control over your children’s education, Obama’s Secretary of Indoctrination wants you to know that all your kids belong to Obama and his Common Core Scheme.

Ed Sec Arne Duncan–an old Chicago hack and Obama buddy–is warning states that they better stop this drive away from Common Core. He also warns that if this business where parents and local citizens think they have control over education continues, why, Obama is going to come down like a ton of bricks on all of you. You better drop that silly notion that your kids belong to you[1], America.

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan issued a veiled threat to the parents and students who choose to opt out of Common Core testing – The Feds “have an obligation to step in.”

Federal law, under No Child Left Behind, requires 95 percent of students in a state to take the annual standardized tests in reading and math from grades 3-8. It is a requirement which until now has never needed enforcement or consideration.

With as many as 184,000 students in New York choosing to opt out, the 95 percent threshold will not only be in jeopardy, it will be an easily missed mark.

When asked what would happen in states with such a high opt out rate, whether they would have to force consequences upon schools, parents, and students, Duncan responded “We think most states will do that.”

Remember, America, your children belong to Obama.
