Common Core and the EduTech abyss by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2013 The Common Core gold rush is on. Apple, Pearson, Google, Microsoft and Amplify are all cashing in on the federal standards/testing/textbook racket. But the EduTech boondoggle is no boon for students.

As you’ve likely read, the Pentagon blocked members of the Able Danger data mining project from testifying today before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee: Bryan Whitman, a Defense Department spokesman, said in a statement that open testimony about the program “would not be appropriate – we have expressed our security concerns and believe it is […]

The 9/11 Commission was supposed to give the America people a complete, unbiased story of the government failures that led up to the September 11 terrorist attacks. But the Commission now admits its acclaimed Final Report ignored key information provided by a U.S. Army data mining project, Able Danger, which identified Mohammed Atta and several […]
