Common Core: Is it a Conspiracy if it's True?

Does a "conspiracy" cease to exist if the facts support it?

Progressives say, "No, it's still a conspiracy." That's because accusing their opponents of "conspiracy" is right out of 1960s radical Saul Alinsky's playbook, Rules for Radicals, to distract and discredit opponents rather than debate issues...because they cannot win when the issues are brought in the light.

Here's a prime example...

In her article, Building Common Ground for the Common Core, Jefferson County (Kentucky) Board of Education member Debbie Wesslund uses forms of the word "conspiracy" no less than four times in this short and baseless (read dishonest) talking-point drivel. (Is that too harsh?)

Today, this article gets my attention: Common Core Conspiracy!. A.J. Cameron goes down the path, following the consequences of implementing these national substandards.
"In discussing the many negatives and lies embedded within the Common Core has become apparent that most people are...missing the bigger picture!
"By standardizing testing across ALL spectrums...parents are going to realize they are expending thousands of dollars for a curriculum that is virtually the same as that provided within the public school system...As this reality is grasped, many, if not most parents will discontinue paying the extra costs for private and/or parochial education.  With the exodus from private and parochial emptying the classrooms, even those who are willing to pay the additional costs for their child’s education will find their school is closed, for lack of enough students.  Additionally, homeschoolers will become frustrated when they are forced to alter their teaching curriculum to prepare their children for the ‘state’ mandated testing...Over time, private, parochial and homeschooled students will begin to be herded into the public school system.
Cameron asserts that the results will be a demand for more public school teachers, more money into the system, and more Democrats obliged to answer the demands. Read his piece in detail here:

Is it a conspiracy if all the facts point to ObamaCore as a national education system with states, communities, local districts, and parents having no control or even input?

Webster's 1828 American English Dictionary defines "conspiracy" as "a combination of men for an evil purpose."

Is it a conspiracy?
