“Building the Machine” – The Common Core Movie

Building the Machine introduces the public to the Common Core States Standards Initiative (CCSSI) and its effects on our children’s education. This DVD set (the original documentary, bonus parent interviews, and six supplementary episodes) tells the Common Core’s story in the words of leading educational experts, including members of the Common Core Validation Committee, along with parents, teachers, and a social worker.

“The Common Core is the largest systemic reform of American public education in recent history. What started as a collaboration between the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers to reevaluate and nationalize America’s education standards has become one of the most controversial—and yet, unheard of—issues in the American public.

“In 2010, 45 states adopted the Common Core, but according to a May 2013 Gallup Poll, 62% of Americans said they had never heard of the Common Core. Prominent groups and public figures have broken traditional party lines over the issue, leaving many wondering where they should stand.

“Parents, officials, and the American public should be involved in this national decision regardless of their political persuasion.” – CommonCoreMovie.com
