A large percentage of the population still doesn’t know what Common Core is yet. Please help us spread the word so we can stop it. We can’t fight it if it remains in the shadows.
Are you aware of how Common Core will affect your children and grandchildren, and of course, the future of this nation?
This is NOT a Left vs. Right issue…there is a bipartisan outcry over these educational “standards” that were drafted in secret and that professors and industry professionals have said will drag the U.S. student behind the rest of the world in academia.
We have gathered information from those who have been fighting Common Core and here, we break down why you should fax Congress and tell your representatives that a nationalized (FEDERAL) curriculum teaching socialism will not stand in the United States of America.
As a Utah mom fighting Common Core said, “There are many things wrong in education not the least of which are laws that tighten control over our children while telling parents what’s good for them.”
This has been a long time in the works. On November 11, 1992, Marc Tucker, president of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE), wrote a famous “Dear Hillary” letter, which lays out a plan "to remold the entire American system" into "a seamless web that literally extends from cradle to grave and is the same system for everyone," coordinated by "a system of labor market boards at the local, state and federal levels" where curriculum and "job matching" will be handled by counselors "accessing the integrated computer-based program."
Instead of teaching kids academic basics and preparing them to go out on their own and chart their own course, Tucker’s plan would have schools TRAIN students to serve the global economy, where they would be selected for certain jobs based on their emotions, perceived talents, and of course, database points that would spit out their path in life.
Robert Small said: “Parents, take control. Do the research, it’s online.”
Parents and teachers are being completely removed from the education process and the government is stepping in to take over. Fax Congress right this minute and tell them to STOP COMMON CORE before it destroys the American educational system!
The U.S. Department of Education was created in 1979 and it is not supposed to be drafting curriculum for the states. In fact, President Jimmy Carter’s Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, Mr. Joseph Califano, said, “Any set of questions that the federal government prescribed should surely be suspect as a first step toward a national curriculum [and] a national control of curriculum is a form of national control of ideas.”
However, since 2010 the DOE has been funding the efforts of two separate testing companies to create a national curriculum for English and Math.
A national database known as inBloom will track students from preschool through entry into a career. Federal law prohibits this…but the DOE simply rewrote the law to allow it.
Emmett McGroarty and Jane Robbins write in the New York Post, “Would it bother you to know that the federal Centers for Disease Control had been shown your daughter’s health records to see how she responded to an STD/teen-pregnancy-prevention program?
How about if the federal Department of Education and Department of Labor scrutinized your son’s academic performance to see if he should be “encouraged” to leave high school early to learn a trade? Would you think the government was intruding on your territory as a parent?
Unless Congress steps in and reclaims its authority, student privacy and parental control over education will be relics of the past.”
STOP THE INDOCTRINATION OF OUR CHILDREN AND PROTECT OUR FUTURE…Fax Congress and tell them to fight tooth and nail at the federal level and in their districts to END COMMON CORE while there is still time!
The man in the photo, above, is Maryland parent Robert Small. He was arrested for attending a Common Core informational meeting and asking questions.
Does he look like a threat to you? Ask yourself why shedding light on what Common Core really is would worry those defending it. And ask yourself why law enforcement was so quick to dismiss charges against Mr. Small, even though they said they were entirely in the right to arrest him. The answer: They don’t want you to know what Common Core is yet. The government is now telling you what is best for your child and you are expected to shut up and allow them to parent for you.
Obama and his Leftist academia are about to indoctrinate your kids into the United Nations One World Order. He dangled money in front of states when they were desperate for cash…but what he didn’t say is that Common Core’s initial funding will run out, and taxpayers will wind up with billions of dollars in taxes in order to keep it going. This program, mark our words, is going to put a nail in the coffin of American education (and American culture) if it is not stopped.
Kids will be taught through government texts, and classic literature will be de-emphasized. They will also be taught that Muslims accomplished “takeovers” while Christians were responsible for “massacres.” Books declare that Muhammed “was” the prophet, definitively, while Jesus simply “proclaimed” Himself the prophet.
Look, you and I are not against teaching kids about world religion and what history teaches us … but come on! Give me a break.
Also, Scientology videos could be teaching your child—for about 8 weeks—that according to the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, everyone has a right to social security, a job, housing and to join a union – basically more than 30 human rights.
A Stanford professor says that Common Core will put American kids at least two years behind high-achieving countries in math. The curriculum is based on emotions, empathy and feelings, which is why this this Common Core video explains to teachers if a child comes to the conclusion that 3x4=11, it’s not necessarily WRONG, as long as that child can show you HOW they came up with that number and if the WAY makes any sense, the result is just not that important.
Children will learn from Kindergarten through college that humans are harming the planet, Western civilization is bad, and if we are all one large, global, socialist society, peace will fall unto the land.
Common Core downplays academics and focuses on attitudes, beliefs, diversity and behavior. One of the agencies responsible for testing is the American Institute for Research, or AIR. They are the largest behavioral and social science research organization, and are focused on CHANGING BEHAVIOR.
AIR distributes LGBT propaganda to schools and believes not only in the sexualization of children, but in labeling and counseling those children at a very young age. Obama wants to teach sex-ed to Kindergartners…so this curriculum is perfect for him.
Again, we are not trying to tell other people how to live … BUT THEN STOP TELLING US WHAT OUR KIDS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SEXUALIZATION!
Only a handful of people know that something called Common Core exists, and very few know what it teaches! We desperately need you to help get the word out by sharing these messages and contacting your representatives to ask that they STOP Common Core from taking root in your local school system.
No innovation. One size fits all. A focused goal of mediocrity and sameness. Government control and monitoring of our children. A global, Leftist agenda: Common Core is an expensive socialist experiment. The children of the United States are now guinea pigs for the Left’s progressive agenda.
We are asking you to help us spread the word, fax Congress, and STOP COMMON CORE NOW, BEFORE IT TAKES ROOT AND IT BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE TO GET RID OF.
