Dear Proud American Citizen,
The academic world has always leaned Left, much like the media. Stories continually come out of colleges and universities where conservative students who dared challenge their professors were heckled, insulted or even failed.
It hasn’t always been a perfect world of balanced ideas in the classroom, but at least some room for differences of opinion had been maintained.
ALL OF THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE. LIBERALS ARE COMING FOR OUR CHILDREN AND THE WHEELS ARE ALREADY IN MOTION…but it won’t just be our college-age children who are indoctrinated. Beginning in Kindergarten, the Left is about to get a choke hold on our kids.
This is not isolated to “blue states” like New York and California—this is going on all over the United States upon a directive from Barack Obama and the U.S. Department of Education.
Welcome to Common Core!
Obama has sanctioned the new “global” program of education called “Common Core,” a United Nations-friendly curriculum that will put a nail in the coffin of American education (and America) if it is not stopped. He dangled money in front of states at the worst possible economic moment, bribing them to sign on to his “Race to the Top” program and essentially nationalizing American education into his one world order, Agenda 21-influenced worldview.
What is all the fuss about?
For starters, LOWER ACADEMIC STANDARDS. A Stanford professor says that Common Core will put American kids at least two years behind high-achieving countries in math. Kentucky did a Common Core pilot program and saw proficiency rates drop by 30 percent. Talk about “fuzzy math”: Consider this Common Core video that 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.
It’s not that important? Right … because America is going to survive and thrive and nurture engineers and doctors and architects and entrepreneurs if we decide that 3x4 can be whatever we want it to be!
But thriving is not what the Left is interested in anyway. How dare you go to school and learn and get a good job and EARN YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS when not everybody bothers to! Barack Obama and his socialist backers are going to restructure the United States so that everyone is told what their ability is and they will be working at a menial government job making menial government money and hoping someone else will pick up the slack for their insurance, their housing, and their freedoms. Today, Obama only pretends that there is class warfare.
He is eventually going to fundamentally transform America into a nation of mediocrity. But hey, at least the corrupt elitists like George Soros, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore and other wealthy elitists with their private jets, will still have THEIR money. The rest of us will have their agenda forced upon us. Regular American’s will be doing with less and paying more for it!
THE HAVES and THE HAVE NOTS
This is the definition of class warfare. A handful of dictators running Big Brother look down upon their subjects and decree what we may and may not have.
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!
Kids are the first stop on the bus to changing America via Agenda 21. Get them young, get them hooked on government, get them tied into the massive state database, and then control all aspects of their lives.
THIS IS QUITE SERIOUS. I know it sounds crazy and I wish it wasn’t true. Please pay attention to what the globalists are doing to our children.
Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education says: “Our goal for the coming year will be to work closely with global partners, including UNESCO.” You and I might argue that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has no business butting into the American education system. But liberals want to spread the sustainability agenda of the United Nations throughout the planet. They cannot do that without educating our children toward trusting government and thinking of themselves as the “looter” of the world! Social justice means equality. America has too much.
The Haves and the Have Nots.
YOUR KIDS ARE ABOUT TO BE INDOCTRINATED INTO THE UNITED NATIONS GLOBAL LAW. Liberals want to claim ownership of our children, and to that end, they need our children to welcome the State as adoptive parents. From Kindergarten through college, they will teach our kids that humans are the real enemy of the planet, Western civilization is bad, and if we are all one large, global, socialist society, with one law, peace will fall unto the land.
Common Core spends 8 weeks on the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, at times teaching through Scientology videos, that everyone has a right to social security, a job, housing and to join a union. The curriculum spends much less time on U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. In fact, the Constitution is presented more as extra reading, without context and history of the Founders. The subjective nature of the curriculum is teaching students that the Constitution is a “living document” that must be changed to meet the times. The tell kids that it wasn’t meant for women or blacks. I stand here to tell you that the Constitution was so far ahead of its time, that people had to catch up to it!
Another fun favorite of the Common Core agenda is to demonize the United States and its wealth. Common Core math uses percentages to discuss wealthy areas of the country versus poor and explains why being rich is unfair.
Your kids will be reading far fewer classic novels and more “information” texts such as government documents and technical manuals. Maybe Barack’s “Dreams From My Father” will be required reading. Whatever they want to do, they can do, since the U.S. education system will now be controlled at the federal level.
A history textbook ALREADY IN CLASSROOMS FOR SEVERAL YEARS spends pages upon pages on Islam without teaching about Christianity or Judaism. Any mentions of Christianity’s past reference “massacres,” while Islamic history teaches of “takeovers” and speaks of how welcoming members of society were to that religion when they, uh—TOOK OVER. And Jesus “proclaimed” himself the Messiah, but Muhammed “was” the prophet. Biased? Nah.
Is this the future we want for our most precious resource—our children? 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!
Secretary Duncan opines, “Traditionally, the federal government in the U.S. has had a limited role in education policy. The Obama administration has sought to fundamentally shift the federal role, so that the Department is doing much more…”
Yes, Obama is doing MUCH more.
Common Core downplays academics and focuses on attitudes, beliefs, diversity and behavior. And that, of course, leads us into the progressives’ view of sexuality and what THEY FEEL children must know, and when.
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.
Common Core talks about its high standards for students. Whose standards are we talking about here?
COMMON CORE STANDARD: 2ND grade
By the end of 2nd grade, “students should be able to identify different kinds of family structures.” It goes on to say that students should understand how and be able to demonstrate respect for different family structures.
COMMON CORE STANDARD: 5TH grade
By the end of 5th grade, “students should be able to define sexual orientation as the romantic attraction of an individual to someone of the same gender or different gender.” This is the standard!
The documents state in black and white what will be taught: "Students need opportunities to engage in cooperative and active learning strategies, and sufficient time must be allocated for students to practice skills relating to sexuality education." WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Common Core absolutely erases any room for parents to decide when and what to tell their kids about sexuality. And it eliminates the need for outstanding teachers to challenge students and tailor lessons to individual classrooms, because the government will tell teachers what to teach.
For all its emphasis on “diversity” and “sensitivity” training, Common Core offers none. Common Core assures us that ALL teachers will teach the same curriculum and ALL STUDENTS will dutifully learn it, regardless of their individual needs. But really it doesn’t matter, because kids who don’t do well in school shouldn’t be penalized and there should no longer be any awards or grades. The Left hates it when someone does well and others don’t measure up—they don’t want anyone to feel bad about themselves.
This program will eliminate the opportunity for success from an early age and dumb us all down to the lowest common denominator.
That’s okay, you say. You’ll just take your kid out of public school. It won’t matter.
Common Core requires that the government keep a massive electronic file/database on our kids called inBloom. It tracks our children on 400 attributes: name, address, social security number, blood type, hair color, weight, test scores, nicknames, religion, attitudes, parents income level, medical history, psychological evaluations, bus stop times and parents political affiliation, and more. If you are in a private school, they will be required to submit to this database. And if you are home-schooled, good luck finding a textbook that doesn’t incorporate the Common Core curriculum.
Think I’m taking this too far, this is conjecture, you say? Well, in fact, the U.S. Department of Justice and Eric Holder denied asylum to a German family asking for protection in America because it is illegal to home-school in Germany and the family fled under threat of prison and their children taken away and forced into public schools!
Eric Holder denied their asylum saying, HOME-SCHOOLING IS NOT A RIGHT!
That was the Obama administration’s argument in a federal court against the evangelical Christian family.
The ACT and SAT testing is already being changed to match up to Common Core, so there really is no way to get around it. Common Core accredited degrees will be required to get into college.
Unless you help us stop it right now, or move out of the United States. I don’t know about you but I love my Country, it’s just the power of the government that I am afraid of right now!
A teacher sent Glenn Beck a “poem” students were encouraged to recite praising the benefits of Common Core. Propaganda! What is next? Pledging allegiance to Our Dear Leader Obama, or perhaps to Planet Earth? Don’t laugh—progressives are pretty much capable of anything. Indeed, children were already singing the Obama praise song before he was elected. Haven’t heard it yet? mmm mmm mmm Barack Hussein Obama!
“He said red, yellow, black or white
All are equal in his sight -
Mmm, mmm, mm! Barack Hussein Obama”
This is what is going to happen: your child or grandchild is going to come home with all kinds of nonsense relating to liberal math, or global warming, or sexuality, etc. You are going to be outraged and eventually storm the school with other concerned parents. But at that point, you’re going to be too late. These textbooks will already be in the classrooms, your child will already have been exposed to all these ideas and they will continue to be while you and other intelligent Americans go on the defense to get Common Core out of the classroom.
We are asking you to help us STOP COMMON CORE NOW, BEFORE IT TAKES ROOT.
Keep the DRUMS GOING!
You may think we are crazy, but we ask you to look into this program, do your own research, pay attention to what is happening. This is how it starts: the Left plants a seed at a time that eventually grows into something so large and so powerful it is impossible to stop. And they have us wondering how we got here?
This curriculum was developed behind closed doors and there are no meeting notes. Although they say it will be internationally benchmarked, there is no other country in the world that anyone can point to with a Common Core curriculum. No one can say what our kids will be tested on. No one can point to any success for something like this because Common Core is an experiment. The children of the United States are now guinea pigs for the progressive global agenda.
“The empirical evidence suggests that the Common Core will have little effect on American students' achievement." -- Brookings Institution
"Common Core's standards not only present a serious threat to state and local education authority, but also put academic quality at risk." -- Heritage Foundation Issue Brief, by University of Arkansas Education Reform Professor Sandra Stotsky
Don’t let Obama and the United Nations do this to our children and to our nation. Obama wants to get every child in America on the same page, at the same level, in the same way, and he wants to have them beholden to the State for the rest of their lives.
