    ...is a data processing system predicated on objectivism. Objectivism assumes that learners are all equally motivated to participate in a state mandated curriculum, the common core (written by David "people don't give a shit what you feel or what you think," Coleman), is a top down mandate that does nothing for children in terms of optimizing learning experience, but is a helluva good tool for judging the nations classroom teachers based on high stakes standardized tests of which test publishing companies are raking in the dough.

    When I think of the educational naïveté of policy makers who designed an educational system based on Pavlovian behaviorism, I have to conclude, it wasn't naïveté, but a concerted effort to destroy public education .

    Educational experience based on non-consensual behaviorism is authoritarian mind control.
