225 (Live Show): The Road To Hell Is Paved With Central Plans


...from Eugenics to Common Core

Recorded live 6-6-13 with Joe, Cory and various participants in the chat

The themes of central planning and well-intentioned megalomania tie together two distinct topics: a survey history of eugenics and the new Common Core national curriculum.

The article that leads into our eugenics conversation: Huffington Post: People Getting Dumber? Human Intelligence Has Declined Since Victorian Era, Research Suggests

The story of eugenics is closer to home than you might think.

    Agree with your assessment of common core and that its just the latest attempt at central control over education. I think the biggest difference with common core though is the Big Data money that is behind it. This data is no doubt invaluable to both corporations and government. I also find it interesting that Dan Wagner is involved.

    Here are a couple videos you may find interesting.

    Here is David Coleman admitting that he and his people not only were involved in convincing the governors to adopt common core, but that the were also the ones that had the original idea in a small room with a napkin – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76HryWYsDNc

    The full video of that David Coleman talk is here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPoUmSfTTNI

    And this talk is a nice overview on how big data works – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceeiUAmbfZk

    Keep up the good work!

    I spent part of my afternoon listening to Coleman. It sounds like a win/win for Big Data, testing companies and higher ed.
