Exxon propagandizes for Common Core during Masters

http://twitter.com/#!/tw1387/status/323535424163307521

Exxon employs thousands of engineers and geologists. Naturally, it is concerned about the quality of the U.S. educational system.

Like many large corporations, Exxon believes the Obama-Jeb Bush -Bill Gates-backed Common Core scheme will improve education. Reality check: This top-down federalization of academic standards and testing will do just the opposite not only for math education, but across the pedagogical board.

Today, Exxon aired pro-Common Core ads during the Masters golf tournament.

Informed parents, activists, and educators gave the edu-propaganda a big, fat “F.”

Just saw a commercial by Exxon Mobil supporting the common core standards in education. Knew they were bad, this confirms it.

So how many Exxon ‘Common Core’ commercials are they going to show during the Masters? It’s disturbing.

Even Twitter users who don’t oppose Common Core were turned off:

Thought the Common Core conspiracy stuff was nuts, but now that Exxon’s advertising for it …

I’m generally a fan of #commoncore or at least neutral, but seeing @exxon promote standards with TV ads makes me uneasy, skeptical

Consumers have choices about where to buy gas. Some say it is time to do business with a company other than Exxon:

@exxonmobil Any companysupporting common core should be BOYCOTTED immediately. Look into common core and do NOT do bussiness with exxon.
