Exclusive Video: Textbook Exec Reveals Greedy Truth Behind Common Core: ‘It’s never about the kids’

"There's always money in it," admits publishing company executive

“It’s never about the kids,” an executive for one of the largest Common Core textbook publishing companies admits in a recent undercover sting video released exclusively to Infowars.
“There’s always money in it,” according to Amelia Petties, Strategic Account Executive for Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt, who told undercover journalists with Project Veritas that rebranding Common Core would generate huge profits, kids be damned.
In the video, Petties claims the Common Core curriculum is here to stay, but that “slapping a new name on it” couldn’t hurt, “Because I can sell a shit ton of training around whatever you’re calling it.”
When asked whether the quality of children’s lessons ever influence the sales of textbooks, Petties replies, “It’s never about the kids.”
Petties’ admission makes her the second Houghton Mifflin representative to be caught on tape admitting that profits trump their textbooks’ educational value.
On Tuesday, Project Veritas released another video exposing questionable comments made by Houghton-Mifflin West Coast sales manager Dianne Barrow, who made it a point to proclaim, “I hate kids.”

“I’m in it to sell books,” Barrow told undercover reporters. “Don’t even kid yourself for a heartbeat.”
“It’s all about the money,” she added. “What are you, crazy? It’s all about the money.”
 “You don’t think that the educational publishing companies are in it for education, do you? No, they’re in it for the money,” she stated.Houghton-Mifflin Senior Vice President Bianca Olson confirmed to the Daily Mail Tuesday Barrow has since been terminated.Project Veritas took off in 2009 after the group shed light on community organizer ACORN’s nefarious activities, and has since worked to expose voter fraud, the wide open border and now the dangers behind the Common Core curriculum.The latest admissions will no doubt bolster the growing movement to repeal federal Common Core standards.
