Project Veritas Investigates Common Core: “It’s about the Money” & ".. I hate kids”.

Via Cousin John

Earlier this week , Project Veritas, the investigative journalism outfit led by James O’Keefe and known for explosive undercover videos, released their latest work – an investigation into Common Core and the big money being made off the controversial standards.

In the video, undercover Project Veritas journalists catch an executive from textbook publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on camera describing that Common Core isn’t about the kids, it’s “about the money”.

Diane Barrow, an account manager for Houghton Mifflin’s West coast division, is filmed saying, “You don’t think that the education publishing companies are in it for education do you? No, they’re in it for the money.”

When asked if she was in it for the kids, Barrow responds, laughingly saying “No, I hate kids”.

    Too bad NONE of the other media outlets have picked this up...

  2. I know of another organization that hates kids and is in it only for the money and the power: Teachers Unions.

  3. When Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic were being taught in classrooms, you had kids being educated. Now it's all about how to get yourself signed up for the government freebies when you 'graduate'. Oh, and to vote for whoever and whatever they tell you to.
