Were 5th graders forced to recite “We learn more with common core!” poem?



According to a radio listener in North Carolina, a group of 80 5th grade students were allegedly forced to recite an indoctrination poem that hammered home just how wonderful Common Core really is. “We learn more with Common Core. Text genre, features and theme to explore, we learned more with Common Core.” Unfortunately the earliest test scores coming in are proving the opposite. Glenn had more on radio today in the clip above. Below is the poem the listener sent in:
WE LEARNED MORE WITH COMMON CORE
Text genre, features & theme to explore
We learned more with common core.
Fractions, decimals, journal prompts galore We learned more with common core.
RUNNER & CUBES are strategies for
Learning more with common core.
Vocab words like (clouds, organs, force), & omnivore We learned more with common core
Economy, government, Revolutionary war
We learned more with common core.
So many new concepts to explore
We learned more with common core.
