An undercover sting of Common Core book publishers revealed insiders who “hate kids” and push a “bulls–t” system to “sell books.” Conservative activist James O’Keefe of Project Veritas released video on Tuesday of a New York City teacher and a former accounts manager at publisher Houghton Mifflin who describe the system as a giant money grab. “You don’t think that the educational publishing companies are in it for the education, do you?” said Dianne Barrow, an ex-Houghton Mifflin employee, the Hill reported. “No, they’re in it for the money.”

When O’Keefe tries to tell Barrow she seems like a woman who is “in it for the kids” she throws her head back, cackles, and says, “I hate kids. … I’m in it to sell books. Don’t even kid yourself for a heartbeat.” Project Veritas also taped a Brooklyn, New York, school teacher identified as Jodi Cohen talking about Common Core standards, which are used in more than 40 states. “It’s a joke. … It’s bulls–t. The thing is, what they do is they create some new f–king system that f–king sucks to sell more books, and then we have to learn something new with the students,” Cohen said, the Daily Mail reported Monday.
