Common Core Creator Stuns Audience

When He Reveals Why He Co-Wrote the "Common Core" Education Standards (Video)

A teacher who helped write the controversial Common Core State Standards informed a shocked audience that he was motivated to do so because he wanted to end “White privilege.

Dr. David Pook, a professor at Granite State College and chair of the history department at the Derryfield School in Manchester, New Hampshire, had just been introduced at the event at New Hampshire Institute of Politics on Monday night when he delved into his ties to Common Core.
“The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a White male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn,” he said.
In the video posted by Campus Reform, the audience can be heard gasping and laughing, stunned and revolted by the comment that exposed the disturbing, left-wing racial motivations of ‘Common Core” propaganda.
Pook went on to say all kids deserve an “equal opportunity to learn how to read” and the same advantages he had.
Pook’s role is documented at the pro-Common Core website,, which confirms that he “worked closely with Susan Pimentel and the Council of Chief State Officers in drafting the Core Standards for English Language Arts, and currently has several projects underway with Student Achievement Partners on work aligned with the CCSS.”
Ironically, as Campus Reform notes, the Derryfield School where Pook works does not use the Common Core State Standards and has a student body that is 91 percent white. 

It is also ironic since the “standards” have been especially hard on Black and Hispanic students, who have seen their test scores plummet since the introduction of Common Core.
But perhaps that is all worth it to Pook, to achieve Common Core’s distortion of American history to portray Whites as evil and privileged, and minorities as victimized by them. 

If your objective is not education, but indoctrination, Common Core fits the bill.

  1. Remember that FUFCAT test we were supposed to take? My parents made sure I passed that. Never came home with a failing grade. Never. Nowadays they wanna teach ya something different and make it all about them. Screw that and screw teachers who think they can do that. No Child Left Behind my ass! I was held back a grade so I should know. If you don't want little Johnny to fail, teach him properly. Enough said. As always, Benny.
