Dr. David Pook is a professor at Granite State College in Manchester, New Hampshire. He’s also the chair of the History Department and one of the authors of the Common Core standards. He was a guest at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics when he opened up on his reasons for participating in the creation of the Common Core standards.
“The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a White male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn,” Pook said.
Ladies and gentlemen, yet another reason to be disgusted and horrified by the Common Core. Apparently the only way to properly teach people is to rewrite history and denigrate America’s white majority ethnicities.
