Check out the Anti-Common Core music video!
Our future looks dark
Nobody wants us to stick around
With the common core now
On the edge - We're leaning
It's not a race to the top
Blaming teachers has to stop
Let's shut this Common Core down
Educators gather 'round
YO! Hostile environment each day I work a lot,
I'm not greedy I don't think I deserve a lot,
Respect with a decent paycheck & I wouldn't chirp a lot,
But society blames me so it hurts
Absurd thinking; man it's the worst feeling,
Knowing you give your heart & soul
In return there's no meaning,
Union busting tactics,
you don't know the half of it,
Classless, treating us like bastards,
I'm not faceless, tasteless or racist,
That gun your shooting has no bullets, call it ace-less,
It's funny that's why I'm laughing at this plot shifting,
How am I unprofessional for rapping with kids?
Having a fit when all educators know its about building relationships,
It's not what you say it's how your cadence is,
Look at me w/disgrace by my "vacation" damn
I need that mental break;
There's so much else corrupting education man.
We're so data driven,
But look at more successful educational countries closer...
Sorry the data's missing!
New learning standards
Make new learning damaged,
Obama annexed private businesses So public schools vanished,
Think but can't keep forward,
War zone in this thankless place has my feet dormant,
Having difficulties in trusting
Foreseeing nothing positive...
Struggling like yearly funding
keeps school districts reluctant,
Kids treated as numbers
when dealing with budgets,
Being cheap positions cut,
Keeping our kids dumb,
Deprive them as we tweak their
own kingdom of freedom,
They'll never survive or thrive
Bush decided to hide,
His ignorant pride
thinking his vision was wide,
No Child Left Behind began feeding us the demise of public education,
Let's diet from High stakes testing to slim down on frustration!
We're done with it;
No escaping its full circle,
believe me in time we'll see
we're truly leaving them behind,
It's deceiving; it's crime
Grand larceny; it's stealing;
And it's cheating our minds
If we're believing its fine,
Wasting public education,
Untied States is not changing,
Don't understand the lives of children thats placed in,
Underprivileged schools that lack the proper tools to engage 'em,
You'd have to be the biggest fool thinking it doesn't enrage 'em,
Where's the vocational options?
Officials don't wanna debate,
Blatantly dodging logic,
Wasting precious time so much discriminating,
Need a place to alleviate our minds- they're deteriorating,
Innovative creators changing,
Aging views from lack-luster instructional congregating,
Demonstrations ranging from classrooms to stages,
Give me an invitation,
I'll bring thousands from my
Badass Teacher Association!
