A textbook sales executive with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt was caught in an undercover video saying “I hate kids,” adding that Common Core education standards are nothing more than a way for publishers to make money.
Dianne Barrow admitted her disdain for children in a video recorded by the group Project Veritas.
Via the Daily Mail:
The guerrilla video crew that exposed Obamaphone cheaters and shut down the left-wing advocacy group ACORN is at it again, this time hammering the ‘Common Core’ education standards as a scheme for publishers to sell more textbooks.
The West Coast sales manager from one of the nation’s biggest school book sellers, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, told an undercover muckraker with Project Veritas that ‘I hate kids.’
‘I’m in it to sell books,’ Dianne Barrow said of her advocacy for Common Core. ‘Don’t even kid yourself for a heartbeat.’
She added that ‘it’s all about the money. 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.’
Barrow was terminated almost immediately after the Daily Mail read her comments to them.
The video also features a Brooklyn teacher blasting Common Core as a “bulls**t’ system designed ‘to sell more books.”

A rather foul-mouthed Brooklyn schoolteacher is also interviewed in the exposé. Jodi Cohen told PV’s investigators”
‘It’s bulls**t and 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.’
The teacher backed up Barrow’s claims that Common Core is all just a money-making scheme.
“Oh my god, it’s all a money game. It’s all a money game,” the teacher claimed.
