Letter: Gates Foundation fights polio, malaria, supports Common Core
First Published Mar 11 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 11 2014 01:01 am

In his letter to The Tribune Public Forum, M. Donald Thomas asserts that the Common Core initiative is merely a ploy to "control public education and to ridicule schools," supported by scurrilous special interest groups such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation ("Common Core supporters providing misinformation," March 7).

Yep, if a group like the Gates Foundation that spends billions of dollars working to eradicate polio and malaria from the face of the planet is behind it, you can be assured that Common Core is an initiative with evil intent.
