Local control is stolen. So, be ready to call Washington, D.C., for every problem or question you may have. Good luck getting through to anyone.
The federal government and large business are allied to train our kids for the menial jobs of the future. Perhaps, rich, elite students will afford a true, strong classical education. But where? With the federal government control of all college loans already, who will go past high school?
Cradle to grave information on our children will allow bureaucrats to plug in their chosen few. If Common (communistic) Core continues, our children won’t qualify.
Congress, governors and school boards have blindly signed up our children for this agenda, which incorporates failed plans of the last 50 years in education. Common Core is their silver bullet to fix schools just as Obamacare is suppose to fix health care.
Parents, grandparents and all who have had the choice of truly classical, traditional education, this is our last chance. Demand the tons of endless standards testing to stop.
The tests are aligned to a federal agenda with tentacles reaching far into: 1) student personal privacy; 2) student attitude change; 3) teacher creativity stifling; 4) student college readiness marginalization; and 5) hybridization of math, English, history and science subject matter polluted with socialistic and or communistic propaganda.
Silence on Common Core is compliance. Hoping someone else will fight is cowardly. Unify with others, and confront your school board and/or administrators of your district. Tell your governor, too, that enough is enough of this federal government Common Core.
