By having central government bureaucrats dictate how and what students learn — by treating them as mere cogs in a wheel — the innovation, entrepreneurship, and diversity of a “grass roots” education (i.e., Montessori, i.e., Home Schooling) where education is tailored to the needs of the student as directed by the parent will be eliminated. This is the key political argument against the so-called “common core” initiative.
In “Building the Machine” viewers receive a “big picture” overview of the Common Core States Standards Initiative (CCSSI) and its effects on their children’s education. “Building the Machine” compiles interviews from leading educational experts, including members of the Common Core Validation Committee.
