Bill Gates Conspiracy Glog Breanna Mertz

Common Core State Standards Initiative

This is about giving money away. This is philanthropy. This is trying to make sure students have the kind of opportunity I had ... and it's almost outrageous to say otherwise, in my view.- Bill Gates

How Bill Gates pulled off the Common Core Revolution by Lyndsey Layton

* "The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation didn't just bankroll the development of what became known as the Common Core State Standards. With more than $200 million, the foundation also built political support across the country, persuading states governments to make systematic and costly changes. - Lyndsay Layton * Over time, at least $15 million in Gates money was directed both to the state - to train teachers in Common Core practices and purchase classroom materials - and to on-the-ground advocacy and business groups to help build public support. * The Gates Foundation spread money across the poitical spectrum, to entities including the big teachers unions, the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association, and business organizations such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
