Building the Machine DVD Set
From Monica Seitz of Dallastown, Pennsylvania on 3/4/2017.
I have a lot of materials on Common Core. In comparison to the information I have, this set is lacking particular information. For example, it does not discuss the Islamic indoctrination, the inappropriate literature, the examples of mathematical problems and how they solve them, and how American values, etc., are not taught in an appropriate way. I see this set as a good introduction to some of the Common Core issues so out of five, I would give it 2 and 1/2 stars.

I am on the Steering Committee for the new Parents Across America Oregon chapter and we want to use the film in a forum on CCSS. Have emailed for permission to broadcast disk 1 on community media to give the forum context. Have not heard back yet on this request. Please help me asap! Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org and 503-262-4971. I will be glad to write a review after we take care of this critical request. Thank you!

I liked it in general, but the interviews were a bit too brief and seemingly disjointed. I appreciated the professional opinions and comments, but I'd like to see more specific things about what is being taught, particularly in the Math. The parent interviews were great.Hopefully viewers' appetites will be whet and they will pursue further information.

Very good testimonies from the Parents and information from Dr. Sotsky and Dr. Milgram.I wish I had this sooner when I was starting my research paper.
Build your arsenal!
From Dr. Will Thomson of Arlington, Virginia on 2/24/2015.
Building the Machine is a significant contribution to the snowballing national debate on the worst idea in the history of public education. To rout Common Core from our schools, we need all the legitimate ammunition we can muster.
Building The Machnine
From Deborah Poteet-Johnson of Chattanooga, Tennessee on 10/21/2014.
This is a real eye-opener!!! As a pediatrician with a subspecialty in adolescent and young adult medicine, I can see that we area headed for more problems as far as our children's self-esteem and the breakdown of communication within families, between families and schools, and with our government are concerned. Thank you for your dedication in producing this important documentary. I have referred many of my friends and family to your website.
From Christina Garitselov of Spencerport, New York on 10/18/2014.
I was especially glad for the information contained in the 3rd DVD. I am proud of the work people in my state have done to research & fight Common Core. I wish HSLDA would release even more documented information. I relied heavily on the research done by HSLDA for a research project I was doing. I know that HSLDA is very careful to verify their sources of information, so I know that if HSLDA publishes it, I can trust it to be true.
Love this eye opener!
From Denise F. of Escondido, California on 10/9/2014.
We need to be aware of how common core slid into existence so quickly and so silently. This video gives concise information and is easily understood by student and parent. It helps the viewer to really get a grasp of just how damaging this is to our children and the society that results from this crime. Teachers, students, parents and families will never be what they were meant to be as long as common core is forced upon them. This video set is a must see for everyone so they can understand the crippled society that will eventually result from this "government choice" replacing the "people's choice!"
10/2/2014 – Are these DVDs closed captioned and/or subtitled in English for Deaf viewers like me?
