The Problems with the Common Core

… Common Core State Standards CCSS Initiative – Published on rethinking schools Vol 28/no 2, by Stan Karp, Winter 2013/14.

… The trouble with the Common Core is not primarily what is in these standards or what’s been left out, although that’s certainly at issue.

    European Labor: Political and Ideological Crisis

    Comments Off

    … in an Increasingly More Authoritarian European Union – Published on ZNet (first on Monthly Review), by Asbjørn Wahl, January 21, 2014.

    Where social democracy has been in power in EU countries in recent years, its leaders have been loyal executioners of brutal austerity policies, overseeing massive attacks on the welfare state and trade unions. In turn this has, among other things, led to dramatically reduced support for social democrats; with few exceptions, today they are hardly represented in European governments. The social democrats have painted themselves into a corner and are increasingly squeezed between growing social rebellion and their loyalty to the neoliberal European Union … // Continue Reading…

    There is substantial evidence from top whistleblowers that the government is recording the content of our call … word-for-word.
    And former CIA deputy director – and White House NSA spying panel member – Mike Morrell says thatmetadata is content.
    But even accepting the government’s claims at face value, technology experts say that “metadata” can bemore revealing than the content of your actual phone calls … //
