To say that the state of education in the United States is poor would be an understatement. Our public education system resembles something being flushed down a toilet, spinning inexorably downward thanks in large part to our leader who choose to change everything but the things that matter. Our latest example of this is the Common Core, which is really just a continuation and an expansion of No Child Left Behind. Make no mistake, Common Core is an attempt by the left to do with education what Obamacare is doing to healthcare.

We’ve already seen more than a few horror stories developing from the current implementation of the monstrous national education system, and we’re bound to see a lot more of them in the future.

Maybe some like this one from out in Arizona.

Parents of 10th graders at Buena High School in Sierra Vista, Arizona were surprised to learn about the content of a book that was prescribed for the entire sophomore class. “Dreaming in Cuban” by Cristina Garcia was assigned as mandatory reading to this year’s class as part of the Common Core approved and recommended materials for teaching English Language Arts to 10th graders. Not only are the students being forced to read this adult material, they are actually reading it together, out loud, in class. Here is just a sample of what they are “enjoying.” (Careful – this next section is not suitable for all ages.)

“Hugo and Felicia stripped in their room, dissolving easily into one another, and made love against the whitewashed walls. Hugo bit Felicia’s breast and left purplish bands of bruises on her upper thighs. He knelt before her in the tub and massaged black Spanish soap between her legs. He entered her repeatedly from behind.”

The story continues…

“Felicia learned what pleased him. She tied his arms above his head with their underclothing and slapped him sharply when he asked. “‘You’re my bitch,’” Hugo said, groaning. “In the morning he left, promising to return in the summer.”

Dreaming-in-Cuban-pagesWhile that may be acceptable reading in certain homes across our nation, I would presume that there are likely millions of parents who would be extremely upset at learning that this was the material being used to teach our children. The problem is that many parents will have no recourse if they keep their children in the public school system, because in the eyes of the government and the school – this teacher has done nothing wrong by selecting this pornographic material for her children. It was approved and recommended at the highest levels. Perhaps the school will discontinue its use, but what if the teacher chooses another similarly scandalous text?

This is just a glimpse of what’s to come in public education, with the proliferation of technology and the internet our children will be introduced to much more questionable material without our knowledge or consent. Parents, you must stay mindful of what transpires in your child’s classroom. The public school system does not share our values, morals or purpose.
