Another Mother Speaks Up: What Does The State School Board See in A.I.R?   Leave a comment

Tiffany Mouritsen, another Utah mother against Common Core, has been researching a very important aspect of Common Core, the American Institutes for Research (AIR).

Why?

AIR is the Utah School Board’s unfortunate choice for national Common Core testing.  Millions and millions and millions of our tax dollars are going to A.I.R. right now.

And for what?  Federally promoted tests that align to unamendable standards written by a questionable research group to cost us endless amounts of tax money, to stress out our kids, to tightly control our teachers, and to make nobody (okay, a handful of replaceable politicians and a load of educational product-selling corporations) actually smile.

AIR markets its values, which includes promoting  lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual agendas for teens, and publicizes its client list (George Soros and Bill and Melinda Gates, of course, are listed) –on the AIR website.  Check it out for yourself.   http://www.air.org/focus-area/human-social-development/?id=138
