Parenting Election Day BooksSo are we to infer that considering Bill Ratliff and Linda Darling Hammond are both on Parents of Public Schools National Advisory Board (that openly pushes Common Core) that “ineligible” Thomas Ratliff’s dad is partly responsible for this mess?

A Common Core kid’s book teaches 3rd graders that Barack Obama is honest, kind, fair and godlike.
EAG News reported:

On the heels of a controversial children’s book about Barack Obama – which stated “white voters would never vote for a black president” and that “Barack’s former pastor” said “God would damn the United States for mistreating its black citizens” – comes a new lesson that casts America’s 44th president in a messianic light. Literally.

And – surprise – it’s Common Core-aligned.

The lesson plan and accompanying visual presentation were authored by Sherece Bennett, and is for sale onTeachersPayTeachers.com. It’s all based on a book titled, “Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope,” by Nikki Grimes.

The book is read aloud in the video below.

In one passage, a young Obama sees beggars and wonders, “Will I ever be able to help people like these?”

“Hope hung deep inside of him,” the book adds.

Another excerpt from the book reads: “Before dawn each morning, Barry rose – his mother’s voice driving him from dream land. ‘Time for learning English grammar and the Golden Rule. Be honest, be kind, be fair,’ she taught him.”

  1. How convenient. The video was removed. Reminiscent of Cscope/TEKS Resource System owners, or paid protector, actions when an inappropriate Cscope lesson is brought to their attention.

    1: Delete
    2: Deny
    3: Call whistleblower a “right-wing nazi”
