Surprise, surprise. EducationNC has an article up about the Bill Gates backed Hope Street Group. This dovetails nicely with the article I published earlier this morning on yet another Hope Street Group Fellow writing a pro-Common Core Op Ed.
Hope Street Group and outfits like them are an attempt to combat the fact that Common Core was NOT state-led, but in fact Fed-Led and Gates-led.
The article is titled, Hope Street Group: Teachers Shaping Policy. It should be titled, Hope Street Group: Teachers Pushing Bill Gates Education Policy.
The article fails to mention Common Core by name, but includes “Question 12” which talks about materials to support the NC Standards Course of Study, which right now IS Common Core.
