The dream of every Totalitarian leader from Hitler, Stalin and everywhere in between have always sought to centralize and control education of the youth. The reason is quite simple: For whoever molds the minds of the youth can eventually dominate the population of a country or the world, even if it takes a generation or two or three. That is why tyrants in recent centuries have demanded compulsory, government led education. Take Common Core for example, as you will see in the video below, indoctrination begins as early as the 1st grade.
Just remember, Hitler made it perfectly clear that he wanted to use “education” as a tool to mold German children in accordance with the National Socialist regime’s despotic and murderous ideology. As well as Stalin, and numerous other infamous tyrants and mass-murderers. As Karl Marx noted in his Communist Manifesto, government-controlled schooling is essential to achieving the goals of socialism.
Now that one of the top school districts in the nation says they will not adopt in on Common Core Curriculum, maybe America will pay closer attention.

Germantown – On Wednesday evening, the Germantown School Board became the first in Wisconsin to oppose the adoption of Common Core standards.
The school board’s expressed opposition to Common Core standards came after one day after State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt (R-Fond du Lac) issued survey results on Common Core standards that resulted in varied responses from school administrators across the State of Wisconsin. Rep. Thiesfeldt served as the Assembly Co-Chairman on the Select Committee on Common Core standards.
As a result of the unanimous vote by the Germantown School Board, the school district decided that they will set their own standards for model academic achievement in January. Germantown, located in the Northwest Milwaukee suburbs, is considered to be one of the highest performing public school districts in Wisconsin and in the nation. Germantown High School according to US News and World Report is ranked in the top five percent nationally of the best high schools nationally. District Administrator Jeff Holmes admitted that if Germantown sticked to Common Core, they would fall down a road of mediocrity.
Wisconsin Election Watch contacted Meagan Matthews a Legislative Aide for Rep. Thiesfeldt. She said that she is not aware of any other school boards that are considering to oppose Common Core. According to the survey results school district administrators in Winter and Granstburg have expressed serious concerns about common core. The Marshfield School District said in the survey despite they will adopt Common Core, they feel that their local-based standards are more stringent than the state. However, the survey made no indication if school districts that responded would follow Germantown’s lead. The survey found numerous other districts that are adopting Common Core and feel that the new standards are more stringent.
Wisconsin Election Watch contacted Senate Co-Chairman of the Select Committee on Common Core Standards Paul Farrow (R-Pewaukee, 33rd District) for comment. They did not respond to our request for comment at the time of publication.
If you think Germantown Wi is a lone, you would be wrong, if fact other school districts around the nation are opting out of the Common Core standards and for good reason…
