Common Core has been repeatedly criticized for its politically biased materials. Perhaps the most egregious example is a study guide titled, “The Battle Over Gun Control.”
Created by northern California NPR affiliate KQED and taxpayer-subsidized National Writing Project (NWP), the guide briefly describes the Newtown massacre, then states, “Yet months down the line, the issue remains highly controversial: An attempt to enact moderate new gun-control measures this spring was voted down in the Senate, due in part to the powerful political influence of gun-rights groups like the National Rifle Association.”
Follow-up questions include: “Are rules and guidelines that were created over 200 years ago still applicable today?” and “How accurate is this statement: The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun?”
NWP and KQED told FoxNews.com it’s important for students to “engage in fact-based conversations about issues that matter”—but if they really believed that, they’d present both sides of the issue.
