government-vs-god

A primary object should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?

– George Washington

Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.

-James Madison

The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.

– Abraham Lincoln

Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

– Goal 17 of the 45 goals of the Communists in 1963.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
– Vladimir Lenin

Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed.

– Joseph Stalin

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.

– Adolf Hitler

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

quoted from ‘A Parent’s Guide Through Your Child’s #1 Threat; 21st Century Learning and the Common Core’

“As Moms and Dads, we need to step back and start asking ourselves a couple of questions…

1. Can we accept an educational program as a truly solid academic education that will serve our children and their futures well, if our children graduate from high school or college with the attitudes, values, beliefs, behaviors, and a worldview that we oppose, which has been presented by teachers trained to believe it is their responsibility to be the devil’s advocate, and who teach our children to question and even oppose the foundational beliefs of our families?

2. Is it more important for our children to receive college credits in high school, or more important to establish and protect their minds and souls?

3. If your child graduates from college and attains a great, high paying job, but no longer respects – much less believes – that they are worthy of a strong marriage, a free and prosperous country, and that by the grace of God anything is possible – have we done our best to give our children a strong foundation for a happy, joy filled life?”

Ok, many of you have heard of this horrible thing called Common Core, or, what I like to call, Obama Youth.

Who is funding and pushing this Common Core by the way? Well, Bill Gates for one.1. Pearson for another2. The Bipartisan Policy Center, Foundation for Excellence in Education, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Governors Association (NGA), the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and Achieve, Inc. are also running ads for it or otherwise pushing it.3 A group called ALEC also appears to be behind Common Core.4

The Common Core pushers and funders, much like the Planned Parenthood pushers and funders, appear to be legion.

Further backers, funders, and beneficiaries not mentioned already include: NCEE, America’s Choice, The Walton Foundation, inBloom, State Farm, Alliance for Excellent Education, Council for Foreign Relations, America’s Promise Alliance, Fuse Corp, Lumina, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, the College Board, McKinsey and Co, David Coleman, Lou Gerstne, Grad Nation, Connections Academy5, Center for American Progress, Mars Inc., General Electric, Google, Facebook, Apple, Visa, CVS, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Comcast, Business Roundtable, Bank of America, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, General Mills, AT&T, 3M, Xerox, Intel, Dow Chemical, Gap Inc., Center for College and Career Readiness, Office Depot, Dell(heavily), ExxonMobil, BP, Jiffy Lube, Pfizer, Shell Oil, Macy’s, Discover Education, Belk, Taco Bell, Liberty Mutual, Caterpillar, Verizon, DuPont, United Airlines, Walgreens, PricewaterhouseCoopers, FedEx, Texas Instruments Inc., MasterCard, Dollar General, Ameriprise Financial, Chevron, American Express, ConocoPhillips, Hanes, Hess Corporation6, NEA7

Once more, I’m sure the list could go on of the backers. As we know, the federal government wasn’t supposed to be involved in education. The 10th Amendment says as much. However, after the 17th Amendment, the states gave away their control over the Senate. Now, the Senate was directly elected, opening them up to the Big Money people. Now, as time went by, DC empowered itself. The courts got more powerful, and they first kicked God out of the classrooms, then they legalized abortion, then they kept taking power. They let Congress delegate its powers to bureaucracies who weren’t accountable to the people. Jimmy Carter created the Department of Education. Reagan tried to get rid of it, but the Republican Congress wouldn’t let him. The Department of Education grew more powerful over time.

So why are the states giving away local control to a federal monster? Here is one reason:

So why don’t parents and local school boards just tell the feds to take a hike on Common Core? After all, the 10th Amendment guarantees that the federal government possesses only those powers delegated to it by the states – or the people. It should be as simple as state or local governments exerting their constitutional authority and in turn, local governments doing likewise.

The problem, of course, is the money that the federal government uses to subjugate the states and suppress meaningful local control. Unfortunately, in most states, federal dollars account for 7-8% of education budgets. In essence, it’s a huge money-laundering operation, in which taxpayers send money to the federal government, a whole bunch of it is wasted in the massive federal bureaucracy, and then the feds send what’s left of it back to the states — but only after attaching plenty of strings and issuing volumes of federal regulations.8.

So what is in Common Core (and the other nasty things that came before it) that has so many concerned? Check out the list below:

Data mining of students by corporate interests9, curriculum that is hard on kids and downright dumbing them down10, ruining the joy of teaching11, “climate change” indoctrination12, possible Islamic indoctrination13, subtle class warfare and big government touting through the subject matter14, social justice (or so the Left calls it)15, the gay agenda16, very age-inappropriate sex education 17, and much much more.

And, things in public schools, even if not directly mandated by Common Core, are way out of hand. 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35

Big Government trying to get the youth to help push their new world order has been happening since Bible Times.

Daniel Chapter One

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.

2 And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god.

3 And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes;

4 Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans(emphasis added).

5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.

6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:

7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.

There, the King was hoping to indoctrinate the favored youth into the Babylonian way and then, once they bended them over to the Babylonian way, send them back to Judah and have them win the people over to serving Babylon. The move was so successful that many who were taken in later wouldn’t leave after being allowed to go back home, so great was their love for Babylon. Notice how they lost their Hebrew names and were given Babylonian names. Their Hebrew names praised the true God, but the Babylonian ones gave homage to the Babylonian idols.

But surely, we’d spot something like this going on in the Land of the Free and the Home of Brave, right? Wrong! It IS happening!

Also, I might point out that I had an honors student, in my AP English class, in 2007, believe that we are not allowed to talk about God in schools. I myself had fallen for this lie until I learned otherwise. The whole “separation of church and state” thing was nothing less than a power grab by the Supreme Court.

First off, if you notice the first word of the 1st Amendment, you will see that it says “Congress”. The whole thing couldn’t have been meant to apply to state and local governments, for there were state sponsored churches, and localities had obscenity laws.

Nonetheless, the activist Supreme Court decided, by royally taking a letter by Thomas Jefferson out of context, to kick God out of schools. First off, it should be noted that Jefferson had actually allowed, while President of the United States, federal funds to be given to build missions on Indian lands and referenced to a Divine Being 3 times in the Declaration of Independence. Furthermore, Jefferson was against judicial review and was horrified that men appointed for life to the highest federal court should have such power after Marburry vs. Madison40!!! And let’s not forget that Jefferson was in France at the time of the Constitutional Convention.

At any rate, education was left up to the states, local governments, and even the people via the 10th Amendment and state laws. And, since the 1st Amendment refers to Congress, the federal government had absolutely no valid constitutional basis making its separation of church and state ruling. The words “separation of church and state” don’t even appear in the United States Constitution (although they DO appear in the Constitution of the old Soviet Union)!!!!

Indeed, the real nature of why the federal government would want God out of schools is quite obvious:

The Founders believed that all men are created equal and that they have certain inalienable rights. All are also obliged to obey the natural law, under which we have not only rights but duties. We are obliged “to respect those rights in others which we value in ourselves” (Jefferson). The main rights were thought to be life and liberty, including the liberty to organize one’s own church, to associate at work or at home with whomever one pleases, and to use one’s talents to acquire and keep property. For the Founders, then, there is a natural moral order — rules discovered by human reason that promote human well-being, rules that can and should guide human life and politics.
The Progressives rejected these claims as naive and unhistorical. In their view, human beings are not born free. John Dewey, the most thoughtful of the Progressives, wrote that freedom is not “something that individuals have as a ready-made possession.” It is “something to be achieved.” In this view, freedom is not a gift of God or nature. It is a product of human making, a gift of the state. Man is a product of his own history, through which he collectively creates himself. He is a social construct. Since human beings are not naturally free, there can be no natural rights or natural law. Therefore, Dewey also writes, “Natural rights and natural liberties exist only in the kingdom of mythological social zoology.”
Since the Progressives held that nature gives man little or nothing and that everything of value to human life is made by man, they concluded that there are no permanent standards of right. Dewey spoke of “historical relativity.” However, in one sense, the Progressives did believe that human beings are oriented toward freedom, not by nature (which, as the merely primitive, contains nothing human), but by the historical process, which has the character of progressing toward increasing freedom. So the “relativity” in question means that in all times, people have views of right and wrong that are tied to their particular times, but in our time, the views of the most enlightened are true because they are in conformity with where history is going.

…….

For the Founders, thinking about government began with the recognition that what man is given by nature — his capacity for reason and the moral law discovered by reason — is, in the most important respect, more valuable than anything government can give him. Not that nature provides him with his needs. In fact, the Founders thought that civilization is indispensable for human well-being. Although government can be a threat to liberty, government is also necessary for the security of liberty. As Madison wrote, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary.” But since men are not angels, without government, human beings would live in “a state of nature, where the weaker individual is not secured against the violence of the stronger.” In the Founders’ view, nature does give human beings the most valuable things: their bodies and minds. These are the basis of their talents, which they achieve by cultivating these natural gifts but which would be impossible without those gifts.
For the Founders, then, the individual’s existence and freedom in this crucial respect are not a gift of government. They are a gift of God and nature. Government is therefore always and fundamentally in the service of the individual, not the other way around. The purpose of government, then, is to enforce the natural law for the members of the political community by securing the people’s natural rights. It does so by preserving their lives and liberties against the violence of others. In the founding, the liberty to be secured by government is not freedom from necessity or poverty. It is freedom from the despotic and predatory domination of some human beings over others.
Government’s main duty for the Founders is to secure that freedom — at home through the making and enforcement of criminal and civil law, abroad through a strong national defense. The protection of life and liberty is achieved through vigorous prosecutions of crime against person and property or through civil suits for recovery of damages, these cases being decided by a jury of one’s peers.
The Progressives regarded the Founders’ scheme as defective because it took too benign a view of nature. As Dewey remarked, they thought that the individual was ready-made by nature. The Founders’ supposed failure to recognize the crucial role of society led the Progressives to disparage the Founders’ insistence on limited government. The Progressive goal of politics is freedom, now understood as freedom from the limits imposed by nature and necessity. They rejected the Founders’ conception of freedom as useful for self-preservation for the sake of the individual pursuit of happiness. For the Progressives, freedom is redefined as the fulfillment of human capacities, which becomes the primary task of the state.
To this end, Dewey writes, “the state has the responsibility for creating institutions under which individuals can effectively realize the potentialities that are theirs.” So although “it is true that social arrangements, laws, institutions are made for man, rather than that man is made for them,” these laws and institutions “are not means for obtaining something for individuals, not even happiness. They are means of creating individuals…. Individuality in a social and moral sense is something to be wrought out.” “Creating individuals” versus “protecting individuals”: this sums up the difference between the Founders’ and the Progressives’ conception of what government is for.41

(By the way, John Dewey is said to be the father of modern “education”.)

But what about colleges, are they safe? No, they are probably the worst out there! Indeed, Mark Levin rightly had called them the last bastion of the old Soviet Union.

I can tell you for a fact that I had an instructor who seemed to be a feminist (it was an Introduction to fiction class, yet at least half the stories seemed, in one way or other, to have a feminist agenda, including the final book of the semester, The Davinci Code). Also, there was one reading assignment I intentionally skimmed on, as it was supposed to some tie to Little Red Riding Hood (who knew that story, the original, could time to mistreatment of women???) that involved some guy having sex in a hot tub with somebody’s grandmother.

Also, at the same college, I had a history professor who had tried to make a class argument, presumably in a historical context, where he tried to argue as the British that the Boston Tea Party was a terrorist attack. He also suggested that Abraham Lincoln was gay, called Lincoln overrated, called the Civil War “Abraham Lincoln’s War”, touted the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster , and praised Margaret Sanger (at least I think it was her, sure sounds like her, looking back.) (To his credit, he also urged using primary sources and also, thanks to an assignment on the Cold War, I learned a lot of things that helped, later on, wake me up to the Communist Agenda, though I think that was a backfire rather than his intentions.) Even other students were alarmed by his behavior.

I was afraid to tell my family about these things, at least for a while, as I had feared that they met get in their face and that it would come back to me and embarrass me or that my grades, which, sadly at the time, I put way too much emphasis on, would suffer.

And that was a community college. What about universities? Well, they are even worse still!!!42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55

One must wonder, with all of the craziness at public universities, and some private ones like Harvard, why does it cost so much. There is an answer to that.

In Plunder and Deceit: Big Government’s Exploitation of Young People on pages 80-85, in summary, Mark states that the average tuition, room, and board went from $1,248 in 1963-64 to $20,324 in 2013. Further, college tuition debt is the fastest growing form of indebtedness in the country, even beating out credit card debt. The debt is so high for students that it can take years of their careers to pay it off.

In addition, the cost of tuition continues to skyrocket in spite of whether the economy is good or bad. Part of the reason of the cost is the high amount of administrators hired by colleges. The high pay and benefits of college workers is part of the reason of the higher cost. Another is the irresponsible spending on construction projects. They spend on gyms, pools, recreation areas, fancy features in dorms, etc, that they couldn’t afford in the hope of attracting more students. To pay for this, the universities have passed the costs on to students.

Now, to deal with this, the government wants to nationalize student loans (AKA make we the taxpayers pay for it.)

And, the government wasn’t just content with messing with the “education” at schools of all levels. They wanted to control the lunch programs too!!!!56 57 58 59 60 Well, we could always pack lunches, but wait, they’re banning that too!!!!61 62

Of course, unions have also had their roles in this mess. Indeed, I recall that at my university, when I asked if they had painted space ships from the game Asteroids on their wall, they said that those were just stickers and that they’d need to go through three different unions to paint the wall. That should be an eye opener!

If you are thinking of going to home schools and private schools to just avoid this mess, you still aren’t safe!!!63

So, what should we do? The answer is obvious: fight back!

It is clear to me that the schools, especially universities, are being run by the devil. Indeed, while at Camp Joy, a great Christian summer camp in Whitewater, WI, I felt the strong presence of God and a strong force that was pushing back the devil. Indeed, I had heard that people from all over the country pray for the place so the devil doesn’t have a chance there. However, sadly, while at my public university, the urge to do evil seemed strong, with little power of God in the area (indeed, I sometimes wondered if demons ran around the place freely). How sad is it that we pray for our Christian camps and churches but neglect, as I think we do, to pray for those in the government run schools, hence leaving them to the darkness!

Indeed, I’ve seen a massive retreat from the public school system from Christians and conservatives, especially Christian conservatives. Not that I can blame them, as I’m seriously considering the same thing if I ever have kids. However, this will NOT help us win, as it is, if we just decide to hide from the system, then the schools will totally fall to the Devil, they will totally influence enough of the next generation who will be in the government that home schooling and private schooling will either be outlawed or else commanded to conform to their agenda (or else).

Indeed, though I had other reasons (like how private Christian schools likely couldn’t accommodate my disabilities as well as the public ones could, another reason was that they needed to hear the Gospel. I must have left Gospel tracts in the bathrooms hundreds of times and even have put them under professor’s doors. I decided to go into the enemy’s strongholds and fight back. Indeed, we HAVE to fight back.

Dr. David Wood, on page 26 of his book, Stepping into the Light: Victory in Today’s Culture said:

Did you know that darkness is terrified of light? You have no need to fear the darkness because all you have to do is turn on the light and it holds the darkness out of your life.

That is the reason our public school system will not let balanced creationism be taught in the classroom; they are scared to death of the light! They know that as soon as you let the truth in, darkness is driven out.

For instance, let us sit twenty students in a classroom who have never heard of the Bible and know nothing about creation. Let us have a creation scientist teach creationism, then we will have an evolution scientist teach evolutionism, and what do you think will happen? The students will turn to the light. They have taken it out of schools, because the devil must have darkness before he can work.

We are going to have to fight the godlessness of the schools by bringing God back INTO the schools. Instead, despite what the creeps at the ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation are doing at schools and how they must enforce the “separation of church and state”, children should still give out the Gospel, even if it means disobeying the rules. The time for civil disobedience has come!
Mark Levin says as much about the necessity of civil disobedience in our current environment in his Plunder and Deceit: Big Government’s Exploitation of Young People on pages 188 and 189:

The time has come for the rising generation to turn down the demands and schemes of centralized government, its surrogates, and those who steal from the future and look for ways to influence and drive public policy debates and outcomes in all of its forms. It must inject itself into purposes and events that affect its well being and save the future from those who continually loot it. ….. And when circumstances are unjust or oppressive, it must even disobey, but in a civil and peaceful way, unlike the violent and destructive rage of the 1960s radical underground movement and its modern adherents.

Furthermore, as the school system is now teaching lies, we must teach the truth. I have an idea of what to do. I got it from the Harry Potter series.

In there, the Ministry of Magic (the wizard government) for their own selfish purposes, were hampering with the education process and blocking teaching of the necessary materials. Thus, the students, particularly the protagonist Harry Potter, took it upon themselves to teach themselves and others the necessary materials that the government was letting them do. Note, this was a courageous move, as they were forming, according to the rules of pro-educrat, pro-Big Government lackey Dolores Umbridge, they were an unauthorized institution and were facing expulsion if caught. However, they formed a group they called Dumbledore’s Army where they defied the tyrannical Umbridge and Ministry of Magic and learned the essential materials anyway, indeed actually testing better than their peers who had just gone along with the system.

We need to do something similar with U.S. history the Bible, etc, having student groups, totally illegal if necessary, teaching students the truth about our American history and also essential math, etc, skills that our public screwels and their Big Government allies won’t let them hear.

Also, at home, parents need to take time away from the boob tube and their jobs where they bust their butts to buy material items that they don’t need and that won’t do their children squat in the times to come and instead focus on what matters most: bringing up their children to be moral, just, and free citizens!!!

Indeed, the Bible says as much:

Proverbs 22: 6 – Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Deuteronomy Chapter 6

Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:

2 That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:

5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

So we have to fight back for the future of our country and for the very souls of future generations! We need to empower our children to be like Daniel:

Daniel Chapter One

8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

9 Now God had brought Daniel into favour and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs.

10 And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.

11 Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah,

12 Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink.

13 Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king’s meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants.

14 So he consented to them in this matter, and proved them ten days.

15 And at the end of ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king’s meat.

16 Thus Melzar took away the portion of their meat, and the wine that they should drink; and gave them pulse.

17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

18 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.

19 And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.

20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.

21 And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus.

So, our best bet is to get the federal government out of education: period! But how do we do that when our federal government doesn’t have many checks and balances left? We will need to give the power of restraint on the federal government back to the states. We can do this via the 2nd clause of Article V of the United States Constitution: the state convention process. One part of an amendment that I had in mind was to allow the states to end the bureaucracies. Something like this:

All federal departments shall sunset within six months of the ratification of this amendment unless they are individually voted to continue by legislatures of 3/5 of the several States. All departments made after the ratification of this amendment shall sunset every three years unless they are voted to continue by the legislatures of 3/5 of the several States. When they sunset, all their regulations shall be automatically repealed and defunded and the weapons that every dissolved bureaucracy has shall be given over to the United States military for use.

Here’s a story on how Common Core even threatens home school freedom: http://pub.vitrue.com/J2Iu

Yikes, a high school showed porn movie Fifty Shades of Grey. Make sure you know what’s going on in your kid’s school folks: http://dailycaller.com/2015/05/16/busted-high-school-teacher-caught-showing-fifty-shades-of-grey-in-class/

Man, universities seem to be trying to have the stupidest politically correct policies, as though they were competing for the stupidest. This time, limiting the word “man”:

A Breitbart editor was banned from a university panel on discussing censorship. Oh the irony! http://www.againstcronycapitalism.org/2015/10/breitbart-editor-banned-from-panel-at-university-discussing-censorship/

Looks like a school is afraid that their bible class might get federal funding cut. Time to tell the feds to take a hike! http://www.eagleforum.org/publications/educate/june12/bible-class.html

Bring Your Bible to School Day. Sounds like a great idea. We should do this every day. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/10/09/organizer-hits-back-after-bring-your-bible-to-school-day-furor-and-he-has-a-message-about-the-koran/

ESEA has passed both houses of Congress and Obama is sure to sign it. Looks like we are stuck with Common Core for the next several years unless Convention of States can get rid of it sooner.

Also, a school district, being pressed by the Imperial Obama administration, has caved and let a boy who thinks he’s a girl to use the girls locker room. http://christiannews.net/2015/12/09/school-district-votes-to-allow-boy-in-girls-locker-room-following-ultimatum-from-obama-admin/

So now schools are banning Star Wars T-Shirts that have pictures of a stormtrooper holding a gun. I’m sure the First Order is pleased by this show of tyranny from the schools: http://libertynews.com/2015/12/texas-school-joins-pc-dark-side-bans-kids-star-wars-shirt-because-it-depicts-storm-trooper-holding-a-gun/

A Kentucky public school has censored part of a Charlie Brown Christmas because it had Bible content in it: http://www.youngcons.com/kentucky-school-district-cuts-bible-content-from-a-charlie-brown-christmas/

Ok, this is disturbing. My worst fears are starting to be confirmed:

In the days immediately following the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act, we’ve had a lot of people asking us what the impact will be not just for public and private school students but on homeschoolers. Will Estrada, director of federal relations for the Home School Legal Defense Association and a contributor to our book Common Ground on Common Core, is reporting that, while his organization still has concerns, certain carve outs achieved in the legislation have eliminated any direct impact for homeschooling families. Other organizations have provided similar perspective.Yet, not having an immediate or direct impact is not the same as having no impact. So, we threw the question out to an extensive network of education experts and activsts. One response that came back rang so true and seemed so important to us that we obtained the permission of the activist who wrote it to share it with you.

Here, with only minimal editing for readability, are the thoughts of Michigan education activist and mother to six homeschooled children Karen Braun. While her response is important for homeschoolers, everyone who cares about education would do well to heed what she’s saying, because soft consequences have long been unfolding for everyone in the education “reform” game:

I actually don’t see “big battles” over homeschool freedom coming. They won’t need to mandate anything. The soft consequences of non-participation will filter out many and they will choose other options to educate their children. I call it the soft consequences of non-participation. That’s how they push this stuff on the states. A competitive grant for doing something will by inference have consequences for those who do not participate.

Reformers know that homeschoolers are a formidable foe, so they silence us with meaningless exemptions that allegedly “protect” us from mandates. But the effects of the reforms are still very much felt by homeschoolers. They use competitive grants for states but there is also money for individuals who play by the Feds’ rules.

For example, Congress is moving to make it easier to apply for financial aid. Louisiana has even just required a FAFSA application for high school graduation. Those who choose not to apply must obtain a waiver. Post-secondary institutions, which in many cases also rely on federal funds, will likely be told how many “waivers” they are allowed to accept. They now have a mechanism to penalize anyone who does not participate in FAFSA by only giving money to those that comply. The soft consequences of non-participation are already on view. And that’s not even necessarily people who homeschool!

In 2010, President Obama changed the FAFSA and required colleges to determine the “validity” of a diploma. That same mechanism can be used to filter out anyone else who does not comply with federal demands, including homeschoolers, defining “valid” in whatever way the federal government desires. ESSA has much to say about early learning, mental and physical health, STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathmatics), and career pathways. Schools are now requiring surveys for career selection as a condition of graduation. Homeschoolers do not participate in those surveys or yield such data. Federal aid will thus be denied them. But, in the end, will any college even be allowed to accept them, even if they can pay cash? I doubt it. Like ObamaCare a single payer education system means all must buy in or face penalties. For health care, the penalty is a monetary fine. For education, the consequences could mean being barred from college admission or a job.

Post-secondary institutions and employers will increasingly be able to access data collected during the K-12 years on those students they would like to consider for dual enrollment, early college entry, career training, and employment. Michigan is already pushing for the ACT WorkKeys assessment to be a condition for hiring. That same assessment is mandatory for high school graduation but not required for Michigan homeschoolers.

Companies such as Parchment facilitate accessibility to transcripts. A parent just told me she must sign a form that waives her student’s right to read any college letters of recommendation. Another waiver…and if she doesn’t sign it, no transcripts will be sent. More soft consequences of non-participation.

The ESSA language was written to keep examples like those cited above moving forward. Career pathways, STEM, dual enrollment, and more I haven’t even yet read are all in there. Homeschool language written to protect us is meaningless when participation incentives are provided. Those who don’t participate, or who aren’t enticed by the incentives, will reap the soft-consequences of non-participation.

Another anti-Christian “learning” environment: http://aclj.org/persecuted-church/true-or-false-christianity-under-attack-in-the-classroom?utm_content=sf43293079&utm_medium=spredfast&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=Informational&sf43293079=1

Funny, while the ACLU and their ilk will throw a fit if anything even closely resembles a Christian prayer in public schools, they are silent when 5 public schools put in a Muslim prayer room: http://goo.gl/iBRe92

It seems that kindergarten is becoming the new first grade and pre-school is becoming the new kindergarten. 71

California mandates sex-education classes for grades 7-12, which, I have heard, include “gender identity”: http://edsource.org/2015/sex-ed-to-become-mandatory-in-grades-7-12-in-california/88248

There is a lot of talk about college student loans and wondering if the return on investment for what is being paid out is worth it.  There are loads of cases where the answer is no.  And with open borders, this is going to make it harder to get a job, as is the bad economy, which makes it a dreadful employer’s market.  Here are some articles on the loan thing.72 73 74 

Another Muslim homework assignment:  http://www.newsiosity.com/articles/society/wisconsin-public-school-assigns-controversial-book-muslim-prayers

Looks like a Maine school is now recruiting students for Hillary:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3389859/Parents-outraged-Maine-public-school-recruiting-students-help-Hillary-Clinton-s-campaign-fulfill-community-service-requirement.html

It seems that a school tried to subliminally compare George Zimmerman to the KKK or, even worse, to suggest that the US was still racist over the Zimmerman-Martin incident by a picture they had in their finals:  http://www.allenbwest.com/2016/01/parents-outraged-when-students-were-given-this-image-for-writing-assignment/

Looks like a Scholastic book left Israel off the map, literally:  http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/152810/childrens-book-illustration-leaves-israel-off-map

A teacher says that she believes her students, even gifted ones, aren’t learning about US history properly thanks to Common Core testing:  http://roundtheinkwell.com/2015/04/06/teacher-my-students-were-never-taught-history-due-to-common-core-test-prep/

Looks like kids are being forced to go to “racial identity” classes.   It’s high time we took back our classrooms!   http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/12/racial-identity-mlk-new-trier/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social

College students are being taught that most terrorists are conservative white men:  http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/25808/

So Common Core was created to help publishers write books and make money, not for the kids.   We’d never have guessed:   http://madworldnews.com/manager-publisher-common-core/

School athletic associations getting politically correct.  Suspend student for five games for tweeting against their nonsense.   This is tyranny folks!   http://www.thefederalistpapers.org/us/state-officials-ban-saying-usa-usa-at-games-student-tells-them-to-eat-sht

A school in Texas says that under Islam, everyone is equal:  http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/01/14/texas-high-school-fudges-truth-teaches-that-under-islam-all-people-are-equal-294564#ixzz3xLEHRJmt

3×4 = 11 under Common Core “math”.  I wonder if this is how we’re getting the 5% unemployment numbers the feds are talking about.   http://www.conservativeoutfitters.com/blogs/news/83993025-video-school-official-explains-3-x-4-11-under-common-core

So a student has a major asthma attack.  The teacher just sends an email to the nurses office rather than acting herself, despite the student with asthma falling on the floor.   The student takes matters into his own hands and takes the girl to the nurse’s office.  Does the student get commended?  No, that won’t do in Liberalville.  He gets suspended for insubordination:  http://www.americasfreedomfighters.com/2016/01/22/school-suspends-boy-girl/#

So now they are banning Valentines Day because it offends Muslims.  Perhaps we should ban April 15th because it offends taxpayers:   http://www.americasfreedomfighters.com/2016/01/29/elementary-school-bans-valentines/

This teacher is brave.  He tells of what is going on in a public school and it is shocking:  https://youtu.be/PVNC_R260pA

San Francisco schools are thinking about mandatory condom distribution to 11 year olds:  http://eagnews.org/san-fran-schools-mull-mandatory-distribution-of-condoms-to-11-year-olds/

A mother stands up against sexually explicit materials being taught in schools and is fighting back in the state legislature:  http://dailysignal.com/2016/02/01/virginia-mom-takes-fight-against-sexually-explicit-books-to-state-lawmakers/

In yet another show of public school bias, a homeschooling team has been banned from participating at an event:  http://eagnews.org/home-school-debate-team-banned-from-participating-in-state-competitions/

So now students are banned from saying “Mom” or “Dad”: http://www.educationviews.org/students-banned-mom-dad/

Even states like Texas aren’t immune to inappropriate sexual material being taught in schools:  http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2016/03/25/parents-upset-elementary-students-taught-inappropriate-topics/

Found this post on an anti-Common Core Facebook group.  Watch out what they put in these Common Core tests:

Yesterday my 7th grade child took the Ohio Air test. She says that the language arts portion of the test was a story about a young girl being married off to a French woman and needed to learn French before it happened! I am outraged at this, it’s sick and warped. I’m wondering why this is not on the news everywhere, I feel as though they are indoctrinating our children, has anyone else heard about this?

Furthermore, said person said:

They have the math portion left, I will be sending in the opt out form ASAP. I agree, it is all done in secret so we are not aware of what will be taught to our kids. The teachers were threatening the students in my Daughters school before the test that if they did not do good on the test they would fail and be put in special classes since they obviously don’t know what they should! One teacher threatened to take away lunches! My daughter is smart enough to know better but it is outrageous what is happening because of these tests!! Lord help us!

Well done on this girl speaking out and calling it like it is:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jZHNjc4Xk0

A school  tries to block, literally, religious liberty:  http://tprty.co/D7e4WC

Found this interesting entry on the Protecting Childhood Facebook page:

Overnight, news broke that Prince Rogers Nelson, better known just as Prince, passed away suddenly at age 57.

We all know him as the prodigiously talented, eccentric, religious pop icon of the 1980s. There’s nobody who wouldn’t recognise When Doves Cry or Raspberry Beret when they come on the radio.

Prince had an interesting early life. Growing up as an African American in Minnesota in the 1960s, racial tensions and socio economic disadvantage were common. His parents, who encouraged his musical gift as a young boy, separated in his early teens and eventually he moved in with neighbours, rather than be shoved from parent to parent.

Classmates remembered him as the painfully shy and quiet kid who you wouldn’t notice if you passed him in the hall. Teachers do remember him though, they remember him coming in at all hours to play basketball with his friends, which despite his short stature – he was only 5’2 – he was extremely good at. And they also remember him in the music room banging out music of his own composition on pianos, guitars, drums hours after sports practice had finished and when the cleaners were trying to get in! They would often lock the doors to the music room at recess to let him express himself.

He showed no interest in academic subjects. He wasn’t disruptive, but did only what was necessary. His test scores were anything but spectacular. In his mind, he didn’t see the point in spending time on academic studies, because he was going to be a musician, and that’s what he needed to focus on.

Despite many of his friends falling to drugs and gang violence, and the assumption that those who don’t commit to academic studies go the same way, Prince stayed out of that with a single minded focus on his music, and writing.

Indeed he wrote, starred, directed and produced his own film in high school.

At 15 he was offered a record deal, which he turned down because they wouldn’t give him the opportunity to produce the songs himself. Obviously not trusting that a 15 year old knew what they were doing.

By 18 his first album was released, and he played every single instrument on that recording. He had his band who performed with him on tour, but so particular about his art he wanted to make sure what was recorded exactly matched his vision.

What does this have to do with Protecting Childhood and what we’re trying to achieve with the education system?

Let’s imagine Prince was born in Australia in the mid-2000s. Imagine he was in late primary with his passion for music.

Would he have the opportunity to spend hours in the music room unattended to hone his craft?
Would it be tolerated that he would “break in” to the gym or the hall to play basketball or music with his friends at night or on weekends?

His lack of interest or application to academic study would see his NAPLAN scores very low. He would be categorised as a “high need” student, and recommended to go onto an individualised learning plan – ironically, an individualised learning plan is what all children should be organically receiving, but that’s another story.

He would likely receive poor reports, and based only on the associated data, school hierarchy would likely recommend remedial study and advise parents to force him to do more literacy and numeracy worksheets.

He may even have been diagnosed as having ADHD or ASD due to his single minded focus on music and lack of attention when “academic” curriculum items were the focus of the day.

Or worse, he might just completely sail under the radar – sitting quietly and non-disruptive. Not making a fuss. Adequately passing within the tolerances. Receiving reports that say he’s adequate and well behaved and nothing else to do, but perhaps encouraging to spend more time on homework and less time mucking around with music. His gift going unnoticed and unrecognised.

He might have been lucky. He might have had one of you wonderful teachers who recognise that children with a gift like this need to be given the environment to flourish and chase that gift. Relaxing on the other items not because you don’t believe they’re important, but that if he recognised he needed them he would dedicate time to them, and with his intelligence he would easily and quickly catch up.

But our system discourages that kind of mindfulness and attention to individuals. There’s little doubt Prince’s “Data” would raise alarm bells. No child left behind! He can’t afford to fall behind on his persuasive text and reading level.

Of course, utter nonsense. He was a musical artist in the truest form. Music is one of the ultimate creative mediums, which has a very strong base in mathematics. His lyrics were poetic, deep with thought and understanding of his emotions and the emotions of others. His music connected with people.

He was not illiterate. He was not innumerate.

If we continue down this path of standardised education; standardised assessment; assessing all children as if one size fits all, children like Prince Rogers Nelson, unique diamonds, might well be discarded, dissuaded, disillusioned into believing they are a failure.

Imagine how much poorer the world would be today if that had happened in the 1970s.

How much poorer will the world be in 2040 if the Prince of today has been discouraged because the data said they weren’t good enough, and their teachers and parents buy into it?

We can’t let that happen.
We won’t let that happen.

BTW, here is another reason to fear the ESSA.  GLSEN LIKES it:

Dear GLSEN family:

Today, the U.S. Senate passed Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) by a vote of 85-12, which will usher in a new era in K-12 education and punctuate a shift in GLSEN’s strategic direction that has been underway for some months now. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is heading to the President’s desk. When President Obama signs the bill, it will mark a drastic shift of federal engagement in education reform, pushing significant power back to states and school districts.

Over the past six years, we have made incredible inroads under our strategic commitment to “make sure that LGBT issues are included in all national education reform efforts.” At a time when the federal Department of Education had significant authority to defend students’ civil rights and educational equity, we worked closely with them to achieve a remarkable range of victories. Working with national partners, we laid a foundation of policy and understanding to advance our central purpose – to get every K-12 school in the country to do right by every single student, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

Now we must continue our shift toward an even greater focus on the state and local level. This is where the battles will be won moving forward. It is where we see the biggest threats to LGBT youth and the best opportunities to improve K-12 schools.

ESSA is a complex bill that limits the power of the Secretary of Education to direct state action. It also does not include language necessary to protect LGBT youth, though it does include some important civil rights reporting measures.

Some of our key allies in Congress worked long and hard to win this compromise. They prevented numerous measures that would have rolled back many of the gains we have made. We look forward to continuing our work with them to pass the Safe Schools Improvement Act and the Student Non-Discrimination Act, improve students’ lives, and protect civil rights under this new federal funding framework.

You can find our public statement on ESSA here:

http://www.glsen.org/article/glsen-issues-statement-every-student-succeeds-act

For all of us at GLSEN, this new national framework is an urgent call to action. There are building blocks to work with to keep making progress. But we must redouble our efforts at the state and local level, where most of the goal setting for our schools and accountability for progress against them will now reside.

In the near term, three critical goals are crystal clear:

1) Get LGBT youth included in state-level measurements for school improvement and quality:

Under ESSA, states will be required to design the ways they will report to the federal government on their schools’ quality and effectiveness. There is a window of opportunity to influence how states measure their success, making sure that LGBT youth are part of the equation. Then we will have to keep working to make sure states are held accountable for continued progress.

2) Redouble our efforts to get LGBT youth counted in every government survey on youth health, school experience, and academic achievement:

ESSA requires states to report data on all categories of students currently protected by federal civil rights law. LGBT students are not (yet) protected. But if we continue to make LGBT youth visible in these studies by getting them included in all data collection, the LGBT achievement and experience gap will be visible in ways that will fuel future debates and spur new action.

3) Continue to show educators, policymakers, and the public what works for LGBT students and for schools:

As we continue to bring LGBT-supportive programs, policies, and resources to schools everywhere, we show the world what works to support students and improve school climate for all. GLSEN exists to help schools do their best by every student, and to overcome the barriers of fear, prejudice, and ignorance that keep schools from doing the right thing. Each time we achieve that in a new school, we can carry that experience and the evidence of success on to the next.

We will continue to work with all of you to identify opportunities under ESSA and invest in work that improves the lives of LGBT youth. Don’t hesitate to let me, Juan Martinez or Nathan Smith know if you have questions or would like further information. For now, thank you so much for all that you do to make GLSEN the force for change that we are.

Warmly,

Dr. Eliza Byard

Executive Director

Watch out for what teachers are doing in your kid’s schools.  Found this on an anti-Common Core Facebook group:

My son just told me (he’s 11th grade) that his teacher has a huge rainbow flag (bigger than the US flag) in her public school classroom. I am going to contact her and ask her to support “straight” students with a symbol in her class as well. Any ideas?

What a disgusting case of racism!  What is even more outrageous is that the teacher was only “reprimanded” for doing this:  http://conservativetribune.com/teacher-assault-young-boy/

Found another alarming post on an anti-Common Core group:

Sadly it is working…..Until now I have not known firsthand any families or children actually touched by the garbage that is being pushed in schools. Today I had dinner with friends who spoke about their niece, age 4, who came home and had the following conversation with her parents.

“Mommy, you are wrong.”
“About what, sweetheart?”
You are wrong. A man can marry another man, and a woman can marry another woman. It doesn’t have to be just a man and a woman.”
“Who told you this, honey?”
Our teacher told us today in school.”

The father in this famaily is up for tenure at the university at which he works, and the community in which they live is incredibly “liberal” so their school board or other parents wil be unsupportive; their only choice is to place their daughter elsewhere.

Found another post on an anti-Common Core FB group:

I know this isnt necessarily CC, but a young lady I know in High School posted this on her profile and wanted to share…..School= humiliation, stress, sadness, anxiety, death, worthlessness, anger, shootings, crazy people, lies, abuse, sleep deprivation, depression, fake smiles, fake laughs, fake personalities, fake people, controlling, over worked, overdosing, suicidal thoughts.
And our government is corrupt. They force people to go to school or their parents goes to jail….America is NOT “FREE” we are slaves paying off the government’s debt… all this to graduate, and we still have graduates working at your near by McDonald’s or Taco Bell! IT’S ALL LIES PEOPLE!

More inappropriate stuff being viewed in classrooms.  Found this post in an anti-Common Core FB group:

Today I was substituting in a public school for a 7th grade English class. The teacher left a DVD for her students to watch: the 1999 version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Kevin Kline and Michelle Pfeiffer. There was nudity, very suggestive scenes of heterosexual and homosexual sex, and an unmistakable reference to a man’s erection. This video is approved by the school system and requires written parental consent, so all of these students’ parents agreed to allow their children to see this IN SCHOOL! So inappropriate!

Found yet another post at an anti-Common Core FB group page.   This one is about the trouble she had to go through with her kid via Opt Out for the Common Core tests:

Ok. So I’m very mad AGAIN at this lousy school. This morning the Vice Principal comes up to me and said that ” I need to provide ANOTHER DIFFERENT letter saying my Daughter Danica is not participating in any of the StaTe wide testing.” I said “WHY you already have 2 Opt out forms and a very detailed letter explaining my daughter will NOT be taking any of these tests.” The only come back she was able to give me was “The Director just wants a short letter specifically about the state tests. And if we do not get it by today. I will be pulling your daughter out to do the tests. “

Did I make a big stink? No because my child was next to me and we were in the office with other students and parents so I didn’t want to embarrass her. I’m so pissed I could just scream. This school is beginning to jerk me around.

I want to know who the heck this high and mighty “Director” is at the school.😡I would LOVE to meet it!

They can’t just pull my daughter out of school to test can they? ESPECIALLY when there are 3 yes 3 other letters and forms on file?! NEVER have I experienced this crap from my daughters school! Things are getting bad.

Found this post on an anti-Common Core FB group page:

14 years ago i was ” asked to resign” because i refused to introduce same sex parenting to my class as an acceptable lifestyle option. MY STUDENTS…. WERE 3 year olds! I was currently the only preschool teacher in that system with an elementary teaching degree, and attending class to obtain my EARLY CHILDHOOD CERTIFICATION. During class discussion, i commented on a video shown on introducing same sex parenting to the class, saying, this was not age appropriate and violated my personal religious rights. Weeks later, i was informed i WOULD be required to introduce same sex parenting as an acceptable family lifestyle into my class….that puppets, books, puzzles, play center pictures and materials, as well as same sex parents as guests WERE to be INCLUDED on my DAILY LESSON PLANS and WELCOMED activities with my students. I immediately told them i considered that not only INAPPROPRIATE for my 3 year olds, but against MY personal religious rights…and I would REFUSE! One week later, as my children were leaving for the day, a supervisor came to my classroom, demanding i gather my personal things and turn in my keys WITHIN THE HOUR. ( I had just weeks before received EXCELLENT reviews on my classroom evaluation!) My heart was broken…yes, i was, as a single parent, loosing my job….but it was much BIGGER THAN THAT! 3 yr olds should be concerned with learning to skip, which crayon is blue, how to share toys and take turns, learning to tie their shoes, and how to start writing their names….not sexual DEVIATION! Memories quickly flashed through my mind of comforting one child whose father had been jailed…another who never knew her own mother… of children i had personally bought shoes and coats for…. of a family struggling to remain together but unable to agree on how to handle what they described as their “monster child”…..i loaded my belongings and moved….and later learned the parents had been told i just walked out on them….
The intent of the LGBT group is to infiltrate the minds of youth, to desensitize them so that, as they grow older there was be less resistance, more acceptance without even giving it a second thought…one more thing…the video shown for instruction to those teachers…was produced and circulated by your friendly NEAYC…National Education Association for the Young Child…that was 14 years ago. OUR CHILDREN ARE BEING TARGETED….WHAT WILL YOU DO? If you don’t protect your child, don’t assume others will….and what about the child who had no one TO care what they face? They deserve to be safe and protected too….GET INVOLVED PERSONALLY!
Thanks for letting me share…

My grandson came home with this yesterday, and the class also visited a mosque . He is in 10th grade at Caledonia, Michigan. I know this has been done at many schools with Common Core, but I expected higher standards with Caledonia. It is a very Christian community, and their schools are rated very highly. What bothers me the most are the lies in this about believing in dignity, respect for human rights, equality for all, etc. How can a supposedly Christian, and supposedly intelligent faculty perpetuate these lies???

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

When I taught High School English, the last assignment for the year was a position paper. I listed about 50 school approved subjects they could take either a “pro” or “con” position. I provided a rubric for grading and informed the students the importance of listing references and resources. After one class a female student privately asked if she could write on the subject of abortion. I informed her it was not an “approved” subject. She was disappointed and about to leave when I could not help but ask what position she would take. She was against abortion. I asked if she had any good resources and references knowing how the main stream media spins the pro-abortion subject focusing on our youth with their propaganda in and outside school. She said she would use the Bible as her only resource and added, “But, I know God isn’t allowed in our school.” I thought about it for a moment and told her she could write on the subject. I said, “God may not be allowed in the school but HE is allowed in MY classroom.” The word got out what I said and I received a verbal warning from the powers and subtle hints. The following year on the right corner of my desk I placed a Bible. I never opened it during class time but made sure students could see it. It is interesting how things went from “never” a complaint to a complaint almost weekly and few stood up in my defense. No matter, I may not be a “perfect person” but I stand with God. I have not seen the evidence but I heard that In many public schools learning about Islam is mandatory. Can someone reading this post list the definition of “Hypocrisy?”

Found this message, in reply to another comment, on another FB group page:

Thanks for sharing this very important piece. Having read this, it puts many things into perspective from at least 15 years ago when we started seeing hints of this in our youngest child’s school. I homeschooled our child for the first four years and then decided to enroll her in public school after realizing that she needed social interaction with kids her age. Huge mistake on so many levels! The first day in public school she was tested and scored high marks with most in upper middle school level and others at beginning high school level. This was not tolerated by the administration so she was tested again and she did NOT disappoint. She was ridiculed and bullied by her teachers and fellow students for the mere fact that she was so much further ahead in her education than her classmates. She excelled in math, science, reading, writing and foreign language. The situation got so bad that she herself stopped trying and began to think that she was not intelligent enough to be in the 5th grade level when we knew that she was far beyond. The fact that we are Christians did not help matters either. The bullying never seized and we as her parents spent countless hours in prayer for her. Thank God she graduated from high school in 2014 and God willing will graduate from college this coming December. Has the bullying stopped? Certainly not, if anything it has worsened in college with many of her anti Christian and anti conservative professors, but God is great and has never left us. We must persevere until the end and only with His help. God bless!

I never thought that it would be my school either but it happened here.SHENENDEHOWA central school in Clifton Park New York passed this horrific decision ( transgenders hooping the bathroom of their choice) unanimously even though many parents at the board meeting spoke out against it. There were only TWO students who requested this sharing of bathrooms out of over 10,000 . political Oikophobia is a mental disease it is reported. it’s the liberal secular humanistic progressive atheists who see nothing wrong with this perverted lifestyle of the LGBT community.

Found this post on the anti-Common Core FB group page:

Thank you for letting me join. I am in North Dakota and my main interest is in my state. But there are points that apply nationally.

My knowledge is limited, but let me share what I know. DOE offers funds to comply with their directives. Their directives include financial rewards for low test scores (funding is rescinded to schools with improving scores), use and test CCSS, Compliment the transgender directives. So if you want to continue receiving these funds, you MUST accept these conditions.

The only way out is to stop accepting the Federal DOE funds. They only amount to about 8% of all school funds. But 3% are spent to qualify for the other 5%. So the answer is simple, stop taking Federal money. Then all these issues go away, CCSS, CCSS Testing, transgender directives, and/or any other harebrained failed idea some nut in DC comes up with.

And yet another comment:

I had many conversations with my daughters Jr high. My daughter named about 20 kids that identified as either gay or bi or pan sexual or gender fluid and a bunch more I have never heard of. It don’t take long after walking two steps into the school and seeing posters on the wall that have rainbows and say ” love knows no gender” to figure it out. They even created after school programs for the LGBT kids to have a “safe” place to be themselves.

It’s pretty sad when your 7 year old asks if he is a boy, a girl, or just a person. I explained to him that he is a boy. He then asked me why some boys think they are girls and why some girls think they are boys 😁😖😢

Some comments on the anti-Common Core FB group page about bullying in schools:

my daughter was one of those..she was literally attacked at school because she would not let a girl use her brush..she never lifted a finger to defend herself because the rule was if you fight back you get in trouble too…I was furious..she got in trouble anyway..this girl had never been in trouble a day in her life in school..captain of the cheer leaders..just a great kid..I told that principle ” I would rather be in here picking up my son than listening to this about my daughter” They made her go to conflict resolution which took me interplanetary but she asked me to back off..I respected that…When her principle saw her about a week later he asked her if she had learned anything from this..she said yes..that no matter how hard you try to follow the rules it does not work…and that no matter how good you have been..never in trouble that some principles do not have the back bone to stick up for you.and I have lost all respect for you, I am glad I am graduating.and she walked away…How do I know this…he told me…it totally crushed him because he adored her… I told him not to look for sympathy from me because he earned that loss of respect.


When kids start standing up for themselves it will stop..but they teach them to go tell an adult…not to hit back or they both get in trouble. This garbage started when my sons were in school. Their father and I told both of them…handle it and we will handle the outcome. and we meant it…Yes I made a few trips to school but it was worth it and they never fought the same person twice.


I sub in the schools and kids have picked up the term and use it frequently…let me give you an example…In one class that I subbed two 8th grade boys were discussing something…the one boy was very clear that he disagreed with the other…all of a sudden one of the boys looked at me and said…you need to write him up..I said for what.? He said..he is bullying me…I said no he is disagreeing with you there is a difference. The first boy said…I am going to the office after class and tell the principle that he was bullying me…I said and if you do I will tell the principle that you are filing a false report on another student….end of conversation….They do not know the difference between bullying and conversing and disagreeing. I heard the entire conversation..no threats were made by either student.

————————————————————————–
that’s because the liberal left is teaching that any type of disagreements with THEIR opinions/beliefs, is hate, intolerance, bigotry, racist, etc., etc. Many adults today to not take responsibility for their own actions and situations, and behave as though by disagreeing with them, we must hate them/dislike them/be out to get them. Kids pick up on that garbage attitude, so it’s no wonder they don’t know the difference between bullying and a disagreeing opinion!

 Here is another post on the anti-Common Core FB group page:
I live in a very small town–about 1300 people, including the outlying farming areas. Last year, 15 teachers “retired” (many of them took early retirement). These were GOOD TEACHERS who made an impact on the children. I can’t tell you how many kids went on to get their teaching degrees BECAUSE OF the wonderful experiences they had going to school here! This year, we had 9 more leave! The newer teachers are finding they can’t TEACH the way THEY were taught: all of the joyful anticipation of lesson preparations, the dreams of impacting the lives of children, all flushed down the toilet because of the federal government and their “standards.” It’s all a bunch of crap! They’re too young to believe they have a say in what is going on: easily intimidated. I wish I could give them the courage and life-experience of my 50+ years, so they would stand up and say, “NO! WE ARE NOT TEACHING THIS CRAP!”
As if city-sanctioned (and yes, they were!) race riots weren’t enough, now a Baltimore school district is having a Black Lives Matter activist recruit teachers:  http://eagnews.org/baltimore-school-district-hires-black-lives-matter-leader-to-recruit-teachers/
So you have to pay over $400 to see your own kid’s records and over $100 for copies.   That’s TYRANNY!   http://coloradofoic.org/district-bills-parent-438-see-sons-school-records-129-copies/

Saw this post on another anti-Common Core FB group page:
My wife is a middle school history teacher. She was showing me next year’s text books. There was ONE paragraph on the Holocaust ! Just a handful of words to sum up one of the most horrible and significant moments in history. I guess they are trying to shield young minds from how ugly life can get.

Another comment from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

Our 7th grader’s had to watch this video and answer two packets, on
“30 DAYS LIVING AS A MUSLIM”
The video is propaganda, stating that Muslims in America, are “misunderstood”. Absolutely no outrage from the parents.

Another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

Yea. I saw in my daughters 7th grade history text book an entire chapter on Obama and how he was the first black president “much to the disapproval of the white men” but that he managed to take a racially broken country and heal it. He taught whites to learn other cultures and brought understanding and respect for others to our country. The text book sounded like it was describing Abe Lincoln in many ways. I tore the entire chapter out and sent it back with a note that my child was not going to be learning what this chapter was attempting to teach as truth … Of course school did not take kindly to that. My child is now in private school where she is thriving like never before😇

Here is a comment from the anti-Common Core FB group page about said article above:

It’s for real. I was a teacher. The principal announced in a staff meeting that we were not allowed to give any “F” grades. According to her, “these kids know they failed- we don’t need to rub it in with an “F”. We were instructed that in order to fail a student, we had to document that we met with the parent face to face, with documented proof of each occurrence where the student refused to turn in their work, a sit down face to face with our immediate supervisor and department head where we went over each assignment given for each student. We had to also schedule a sit down with the parent, student, and principal. We also had to provide the make up work we provided on at least 3 separate occasions, and on and on. The time to talk to each parent face to face (it was a failing school, so almost every kid lived in the projects), schedule all the face to face meetings, and meet with the principal was so overwhelming, it would have been impossible to prove all of it. It was by design.

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

Several states have “dropped” common crap, but unfortunately, they replace it with “state standards”, which is nothing more than CC rebranded. I’ve not seen it myself, but I’ve heard some of the new state standards are actually worse than the original cc standards :/
For the life of me, I’m not sure why the “old way” (simple, straight forward, age appropriate, and yes, with memorizing certain things) wasn’t good enough and “needed” to be changed. I taught my (now 10 year old) daughter during the summer between 1st and 2nd grade somewhat advanced math skills. Adding multiple 10+ digit numbers together, multiplying, multiplying fractions, and she was literally BEGGING for “harder” problems. I taught her the way I learned, and she understood it perfectly. When she got back to school for 2nd, all excited because she knew “more” than the other kids, she was told she could not do it that way (in fact, got several ZEROs for doing it anyway). She resorted to doing even simple addition problems (5+7) on her fingers. She was scared to death of “failing” or getting an incorrect answer. It was heartbreaking, seeing her going from so confident and excited about school, to “hating” it. Again. And again. Year after year. Everything I taught her during the summer was “wrong”. We finally transferred her to a school that does NOT teach the cc curriculm verbatim, and magically, she understood math again, liked it, went from BARELY passing to high honor roll both semesters. Same material as the old school, but taught closer to the “old way”. We got lucky. But too many kids don’t have the option of transferring to a better school. Even in states where they have “withdrawn” from CC, the same garbage is still being taught, just with a new name. Just the phrase “common core” has become synonymous with “junk”, so some places are losing the name to try to instill confidence once again. But its all the same crap being taught, just more sneakily now. Parents are being duped because their state “doesn’t have cc” anymore, so they let down their guard. Yet all they did was change the name to a “state standard”. Do not become complacent. Stay vigilant. The material may not be as different as “they” claim it is. :/

Here is a post from the leader of the anti-Common Core FB group page:

“The “Common Core” aligned curriculum, has been in place, in our schools, for the past five years. I am the proud founder, of the national, anti-Common Core page, “Choose to Refuse Common Core“. I began my journey on Facebook, due to an inappropriate “Common Core” literature sheet, given to my then 4th grader. My son’s literature, contained anti-parent, anti American, rhetoric, even going so far, as teaching our children, that the “Holocaust”, never happened.

Two years ago, my then ninth grader, learned about the religion “Islam”, for a full three weeks. Teaching religion in our schools, is both inappropriate and wrong.
This past year, In our schools, “Common Core” has changed “Sex Ed”, in Health Class and is now,
“The “National Sexuality Standards”.

Our kindergartners are being told, that if they are a boy, but they “feel like a girl”, then they can be a girl. When we have children, their first identity given to them, is the fact that they are a boy or a girl. Blue for boys and Pink for girls. No more. Now, according to the standards, “gender” is’ “The emotional, behavioral and cultural characteristics attached to a person’s assigned biological sex. Gender can be understood to have several components, including gender identity, gender expression and gender role”. This “gender identity confusion”, agenda, is the most damaging of the “Common Core agenda’s to date. Part of breaking our children’s spirit, so that a “Global” and Islamic agenda, can be cemented, into our children’s minds.

We must fight to free our children, from the Progressive, “Common Core”, curriculum in our schools.
Our group “Choose to Refuse Common Core”, is the only page in the world, revealing, all agendas of the “Common Core” aligned curriculum.

Children, as young as eight, were given this video to view.
“I’m curious if anybody’s child has had to view this vid short for English class. My 14 year old is in summer school and they had them watch this and then write a narrative on it. It is quite dark and unnerving IMHO. I don’t know what to make of it.

Yet another post from the “Choose to Refuse Common Core” FB group page:

A seven year old, created this, she was told that she would have to go to “Summer School”, after “Common Core” was implemented.
Common Core was set up to fail our children and make our children, feel like “failures”.

sad kids

And here is a post in reply to that:

Yes, a survey was sent around WA state asking opinions about year-round public school. Can’t believe they would ask a 7-year-old to go to summer school! And if the summer is just spent with more common core, she probably won’t gain anything from that time anyway, while meanwhile losing a part of her childhood.

I found a post that was shared in an anti-Common Core FB group:

This is NOT a joke. Wednesday afternoon I got a call from the vice principle saying my 10 yr old Nick brought a WEAPON to school. (We have year round schools here in Las Vegas so Nick is still in school till August)
She said Nick was being held in the principles office and I needed to go to the school immediately for a conference. She said he had a “make shift cross bow”. I asked her what it was made of and she said “Popsicle sticks and rubber bands”.
This home made cross bow flings an extremely dangerous type of ammunition called “Q-TIPS”.
John left work and immediately met me at the school. They suspended Nick for three days which will be on his permanent record.
To be clear. I was told Nick did not attempt to fling a Q-Tip at anyone. He was not even playing with it in class. He simply had it in his possession on school grounds. Nick has never once been in trouble at school and is a great student. He was excited he got his creation to work and wanted to show it off to his friends at recess. I thought my husband was going to lose his mind arguing with the school staff over them putting “weapon” on his permanent record.
Our enemy is over there teaching kids how to slit throats while we are teaching our kids that making q-tip shooters out of Popsicle sticks is a punishable offense. This is insanity folks…

Here is a post from the leader of the “Choose to Refuse Common Core” FB group:

Hello Members 🙂
I just met a math teacher in the salon, while I got my nails done. The teacher taught, 4th, 5th and 6th grade “Common Core” math. When I spoke to this educator about Common Core, she began by lying, straight to my face. When I asked about religion in our schools, she said that all religions are being taught “the same”.
At the end of the nail session, she relented in front of all, that our children are being indoctrinated into Islam, in our schools.WHAT IS WITH THE LYING? “Aiding and abetting”, at this point, in my opinion. It is one thing for an Educator to keep their mouth shut, but to try and persuade a parent, that “Common Core” is good, is in my opinion, evil. Please have join our page, the only page, revealing the whole, evil, “Common Core” agenda, in our schools, “CHOOSE TO REFUSE COMMON CORE”.

Another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

I need help fellow parents. My son is being held back in third grade because of the state testing. He also went to summer school and failed the fCat test. I just spoke to his school teacher and principal. They said they isn’t anything that could be done. In the beginning of the year I wanted to opt out of the state test but was told I wasn’t able to because they needed to at least have one to go off of. My son and I knew that this test would be the reason he’s held back. He has an IEP for speech/ reading/writing are his struggles. His school has been very kind. But they aren’t understanding what I’m trying to explain. If my son is held back this will destroy any interest he has in School. I hate to think that be worked hard all year proving that with the extra help he can do it. He just needs more time. He earned B’s and C’s all year with great attendance! He beats himself up over school work and stress and cries over it way to much. He didn’t even want to eat or go to school the days of testing. All he kept repeating is he’s going to fail. Over and over he hates school. And calls himself stupid 😞 this hurts me so much. I don’t know how to put this but is this true is there no other way to get him to pass on to the fourth grade?

Be careful about taping school board meetings.  They might threaten you with arrest:  http://eagnews.org/video-woman-threatened-with-arrest-for-livestreaming-school-board-meeting/

I posted on the anti-Common Core FB group the following:

Just out of curiosity, have you and/or your kids suffered for your stance against Common Core, data mining, invasion of privacy, etc and if so, did they give your kids zeroes, refuse to give them honors, not give them treats that the “obedient” kids got, did any of you get in trouble with your work or even have to leave because your company was pushing Common Core?

I got the following reply:

i sent a kind message to my grandaughter’s school stating why i oppose common core. I speak kindly, never use bad words etc. Yet the school police phoned my daughter saying i sent the school a hate message. I most certainly did not. My daughter would not talk to me for months.

Once more on education. I just took a look at the school supply list provided for my grandchildren. It included extra packages of crayons reams of copy paper hand sanitizer several bottles paper towels extras of everything. I find it absolutely bizarre that these are public schools taxpayer-funded lots and lots of money both state and federal. Butt they are asking students to provide supplies basic supplies. They are not spending money on infrastructure our schools are falling apart. They are not spending money on teachers most teachers are severely underpaid. They are not spending their money on school supplies obviously students are donating those. Where is all the money gone is there a chance that we are overpaying bureaucrats in Washington DC at the Department of Education and taking it out of the school budget. Is there a chance that we are overpaying bureaucrats on the state level and taking it out of the school budget. Is there a chance that we are overpaying administrators and bureaucrats on the local level and taking it out of the school budget. We need to follow the money Trail where has all the money gone. It has obviously not gone to our schools.

First Day of school my son that passed the third grade with B’s and C’s. Has an IEP took the state test and was held back. No help on the test, directed not to talk about it to anyone. I was told in the beginning of the year I wasn’t able to opt out. The reason is because they needed one on file for him and he has an IEP so he would get the help. No help on the test all they can do is read the question they want answered. Well he locked himself in the bathroom today three times to cry. Came home and has been laying in bed telling me he hates school! Thank you state of Florida for failing my child ! I spoke to everyone I can about this teacher, principal, board of Ed. ESE teachers. Lawyers whom I don’t have the money for! So thank you state of Florida for our common core! Thank you for giving my son an IEP and making sure that’s only a brand because like all brands we must pay out the ass for them and if you don’t have the money, oh well then. You get a kid that hates school at the young age of 9!!

Here is a post from the anti-Common Core FB group:

I’m posting this here because I dont know what else to do. My child is in the muscogee county school district & they seem to think it’s ok to ban her ENTIRE class from recess because a few children act up. But CHILDREN have LOADS of energy so refusing them access to run around actually inhibits their ability to learn & pay attention!! They are keeping these children CAPTIVE in their classrooms & inhibiting their ability to learn!! If a child is disruptive then make that child walk laps instead of using the playground but to refuse them all access the outdoors on a regular basis is inhumane!!

And here is a reply to said post:

This is how it is going…..teachers must need drugs themselves to endure it all……and how do teachers sleep….? Some teachers admit to me that they must be child abusers in the classroom, because the govt tells them to OBEY or else. Teachers i have heard from one mother of a teacher have now underground meetings. They are in tears about schools starting. They dread every second of teaching. They hate their jobs soooooooo very much. They are in misery, stressed out , very very very unhappy. But they must fake it, but some teachers do snap. Remember a few years ago, common core caused two principals in america to commit suicide. They are so helpless, they must OBEY the govt, and they are scared to death. They are falling apart at the seams. But they must get these children ready for being robots for the new world order. They have no free will. The govt owns the teachers.!!!!!!

And another reply:

one teacher last week in a store line told me the govt told her she must LIE to the families and tell them that OHIO GOT RID OF COMMON CORE> I saw her ANGER!!!!!! but on school property they wear a mask…..govt orders.

And yet another reply:

How many kids you think are picking up on these teachers in horror, and starting to feel horrified to? i meet frantic teachers while shopping, randomly, and they tell me in tears we want out. this is COMMUNISM, they cry to me. They honestly tell me that the kids are brutalized and receiving the very worse attacks on their self esteem. These teachers i see look terrorized! I am going out and about today, will report to you all tomorrow, who speaks to me today. YES out and about off school property, teachers will talk to total strangers like me. They are that frustrated. FRANTIC!!!!!!

Here is a post from the page Utahns Against Common Core on FB:

A friend of mine in Granite District called and asked me if I had received a phone call from teachers at the school requesting to come to my home and “meet the parents and family” of the kids they will be teaching. I have not but apparently there is a math and a history teacher at the school who want to visit all of their students’ home. Has anyone else heard of this?

Parma Ohio teachers call common core communism. This what they want you to hear! u tube: lily4liberty. They actually have their own underground teachers group. Parma is largely of families from Eastern Europe.

a high school student told me she saw the common core material crates in the school office, and marked : from Dubai.

Yet another comment from the FB anti-Common Core group page:

i smiled at a little girl in a school bus passing me on the road. The child only looked sad and suffering and very lonely. Wow , first week of school and the sad permeates the faces. These children do not like the govt indoctrination centers (formerly known as public schools) Nine months of this left till the next summer vacation. An unhappy child just does not learn very well.

And here is yet another post on the anti-Common Core FB group:

Have any of you met teachers randomly in your communities, off school property. I do. And each one tells me they are looking for new jobs, and they tell me that common core is communism. And they tell me that they have to lie to families now and say common core is gone and that now it is Ohio New Learning Standards. But that the new repackaging name. It is still 100% Common Core. Yes every teacher i randomly meet in a store line, a parking lot, etc etc all say this to me, It is Communism now in the Schools. Do teachers only talk this way in Ohio? u tube: lily4liberty.

And here are some replies to said post:

CC is Socialist indoctrination with an agenda to seize control of every aspect of life. Education is being changed to manipulate kids into little obedient soldiers of the Gov’t. It’s trying to break down the family structure and American way of life. CC is way more than just reading and math. Schools are now teaching the LGBT agenda and disguising Isham as teaching about culture.

Lol. They did the same thing in Indiana when Pence told people they were getting rid of it

Oh no Florida too.

An Ohio High School didn’t want students listening to Ben Sharpio, saying his “conservatism crossed a line.”  Nope, can’t have the kids learn the truth.  That would ruin the school’s New World Order plans:  http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/12/08/high-school-administrator-dismisses-students-from-ben-shapiro-speech-to-protect-their-feelings-its-starting-to-cross-a-line/

Here are some more comments from the anti-Common Core FB page:

My daughter sat on her bed and sobbed the weekend before school started and my son is angry and depressed on the way to school each day. I thought back to when we were kids at school and although it wasn’t my favorite place to go, I certainly wasn’t in the frame of mind like my kids are today! It is shocking and worries me daily !

Not uncommon for anger bursts, And i hear not uncommon for school police now to have to drag the kids from their parents cars into the school There is such resistance. Overall i observe kids when the school day over walking from the school looking to start fights, jump in front of traffic to be troublemakers, more guards having to discipline the students as they walk down streets from the school, kids breaking windows in stores , just very angry and frustrated kids, with total look of loss on their faces. The solution schools state is MORE PSYCHO drugs, but that causes side effects of kids looking like animals in a cage. How do teachers survive all this? One teacher told me, the classroom is a total jungle. It is so obvious the hate these children are developing. Many avoid streets when these herds exit schools. It is all so obvious anywhere you drive near a school, when the school day is done. Maybe they will just turn these schools into mental hospitals. Nobody seems to know the answer.

Last year, a teacher took my daughters coffee away from her and drank it. When my ex-wife went to the school to demand that the teacher pay for it, the in-school police were immediately called. The school also called me to report my daughters inappropriate behavior for getting angry about it.   In the end, my ex-wife got her money back. After she was nearly arrested for being angry about the incident.

Here is another comment from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

I need to vent here since venting on my personal page is only bringing the comments from people who think school is so “wonderful.” I know people here will understand my frustration. Please don’t tell me to homeschool because it is not an option for me at this time. ❤️ I am so upset! We just went to meet the kids’ teachers. I had heard that half day kindergarten wouldn’t get PE, art, etc., so I asked the teacher if that was true. She said that was correct AND that MATH would only be done in the afternoon!!! How can a CORE subject only be taught to full day kids when full day is supposed to optional??? I didn’t choose full day for personal reasons, and now I feel like I’m going to be bullied into putting him in it anyway. 😞

Here are some replies to said comment:

That is exactly what it is, a bullying technique. Just stick to your guns momma and try to help your child learn math at home.

I agree with [Name withheld] Work on math at home. It will be ok. Stick to your original plan as you already decided that works best for your family.

WHY does a kindergardener have to be learning math in the first place? He or she will get it in the first grade….soon enough. You can teach numbers recognition etc at home . but that should be sufficient developmentally. No matter what the school says.

I’m not sure what state you live in but in Texas even the kindergarten age children are required to pass standardized testing which requires them to know basic addition

Kindergartners with no PE, no art and full days ??? My kids were so tired when they got home after a half day! They would take two hour naps until they got used to the schedule ! I feel so sorry for the kids !

The saddest part is that he LOVES math and is good at it!

If he loves math already, then kindergarten math would do nothing but frustrate him. Be careful what you wish for. Kindergarten math, particularly Common Core math, would likely destroy his love of math, not increase it.

agree. My youngest loved math, then hated it by the end of kindergarten. She would bring home her math packet and cry and cry about how it was stupid. I ended up sending most of it back unfinished everyweek. I wrote on it, there are 5 pages that are just pure repetition. She answered one page. She knows how to add and count.”

Yep! My son loved math too. Not no more. I fear for my daughter now.

I went to school in the fifties and was not taught math in kindergarten. I did do art and PE. Thinking back now, kindergarten was probably considered a form of socialization for children as they did not go to daycare. We even took naps. So, while this is indeed a sad revelation – you can take a half an hour to teach math at home and do an art project.

Meanwhile you could go to the Board of Supervisors meeting and I’m sure they will be interested to hear your comments. Yes, I was being sarcastic.

They believe that teaching math in kindergarten will make american children smarter in math than the children in china. But jim milgram of stanford university said that any child in USA who has more than two years of common core math will be a math cripple for life. No way are these kids going to beat chinese kids in math. And besides our american kids often have even tv in their bedrooms, to help in the dumbing down process.

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group:
I went to my son’s school open house last night. His teacher looked like she was fresh out of college. I told her I was against Common core. She had no reaction. I noticed there were actual school books in their cubbies. There were 4 books. Three of them were science. One was Pearson World Studies. I wrote the name and copyright year down. His teacher said the books don’t come home. I flipped through it quickly. I even looked in the index for Islam. I didn’t find it. I still want to get a copy of the book, so I can read it. I can’t seem to find it on Amazon. Any ideas on where I might get it?

I will be emailing the Principle to find out WHY this is….also they get ONE recess this year. You can’t really count lunch *recess* because by the time the kids get to eat all their food, a big chunk of time has been taken up. AND we now have that new stupid CC grading system. Number grades instead of a real letter grade…. My biggest beef is recess and honor roll.
Anyone else’s school doing this, this year?! 😡

My daughter was denied advanced math class because she didn’t receive enough points from their method. FYI…they count a score for the MAP testing THAT MY DAUGHTER NEVER TOOK because we moved from out of state mid-year. Of course she didn’t receive enough points if she was never able to take one of the tests! Anyway, she is so humiliated that THIS is her sixth grade “regular” math book. This is all review for her, and I’m so annoyed (twice in one week). I emailed her teacher and sincerely hope that they fix this! Please tell me that the multiplication table isn’t normal 6th grade math. My fourth grader could do this!

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

Maybe an odd question, but is anyone married to someone who thinks you’re crazy when you start talking about “agendas” the school has? Here’s my current situation: Our son is an 8th grader. Health class is “required.” After reviewing the content of the class, I told him I would sign it IF he promised to talk to us daily about what they are teaching. He said forget it. So I told him I wouldn’t sign. Then he got upset and said that if he didn’t bring back my signature of permission, then the class will lose out on getting a prize (candy). He also said if he doesn’t attend class, he will miss out on cake and ice cream for each kids’ birthday.

The way I see it, they are putting peer pressure on the kids to get their parent’s signature. If I don’t sign, he ruins it for the class and feels like an idiot. I also see cake and ice cream multiple times per semester as bribery to come to class. What kind of lesson is so important that they are willing to bribe with treats? My husband thinks I’m crazy and that the teacher is just trying to make it fun.

Here are some replies to said post:

If your son gets any flak from any classmates then start screaming the Anti-bullying stuff they like to use right back at them. Then have him take out of that class with a passing grade.

The school must give you a syllabus for the class. Call the principal, or better yet…the superintendent, and demand it. If no luck, go to the next school board meeting. The schools work for the community, not the other way around.

I agree with you. I would want to know what is being taught and would try to explain it to my child so he would understand that I’m not trying to be mean to his class but just concerned about what is being taught. The way things are these days, I would probably NOT allow my child to be in a “health” class given what I expect will be taught. Contact the school and find out just what this health class will be teaching.

This is OFFENSIVE, manipulative and ILLEGAL!!! This should be STOPPED!!! SUE the Board of Ed and slap an CEASE and DESIST INJUNCTION on that OUTRAGE!!

REFUSE “THE HUMAN REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM”. I FOUND OUT LAST YEAR, THAT T H E “TRANSGENDER PUSH” IS IN THAT LESSON. Have you send in your refusal letter yet?

My 9yr old daughter was the only kid in her class that didn’t get candy on the state testing days… Bc we opted out
What a disgrace, how dare they bride our children w sugar?
FED ED at its finest 👎

You’re doing the right thing. Too many classes, especially health classes, are indoctrinating children who are too young for such things into the ways and means of homosexuality, transgenderism, and other objectionable and perverted subjects. Stand your ground. Tell your son it’s his choice if he gets to attend the class, simply by being truthful to you about what goes on each day. If you think he’s lying to you or not telling everything, then tell him you’ll pull him from the class. Period.

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

I was bullied by my son’s High School, when I hired an attorney, who sent a letter, stating “no religion in public schools”. My son had learned a full three weeks on “islam”. My attorney told me that he was told that I should back off, or the school will take away my house, by having me pay “legal fees”.

A school had been reading a book about a cross-dressing boy to a kindergarten class.  Parents hadn’t known beforehand.  http://lancasteronline.com/news/local/story-about-a-dress-wearing-boy-is-read-to-lampeter/article_d62b907a-a8af-11e4-896f-8f6f8e205e82.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page.  It’s from the leader:

Members, I removed the “dildo post”, even though I believe that the post is 100% accurate. The following information, from this article, I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is true. All of this, horrible nonsense, is presented to our children in “Health Class”. REFUSE the “Human Reproduction System” lesson, in Health Class. This lesson, is where the “gender confusion” agenda, is pushed on our children, in a big way. I refused this lesson last year and the principal told me that I was correct in doing so.

“The teaching of so-called “alternative” sexual lifestyles is mandated in many states under Common Core.

The Secrets of the Fed website also points to a book being given to 4th graders under new Common Core standards entitled It’s Perfectly Normal, which teaches children as young as nine how to masturbate.

Common Core, which is being federally imposed on states across the nation, is a huge shift in teaching which opponents assert will eviscerate critical thinking and generally lower standards in the name of inclusiveness and political correctness. Numerous examples have emerged of Common Core style exam questions which only serve to cause more confusion and frustration.

Perhaps the most infamous example of how Common Core will manifest itself in America’s schooling system was illustrated by a bizarre video in which a Common Core curriculum director said that 3 x 4 = 11 could be considered a correct answer so long as students could explain how they reached that number.

Common Core’s sex education standards have also face fierce criticism, with one group even claiming that they represent “pornography” which serves to desensitize children to sexual contact and could lead to an increased chance of molestation within the schooling system.

“What is taught includes teaching inappropriate sexuality skills, that shouldn’t even be taught in college,”writes Joseph R. John. “According to child psychologists, the children are not mentally equipped to understand the detailed sexual indoctrination starting in kindergarten, they are indoctrinated in sexual practices that they should never be exposed to.”

As the backlash grows, more and more states are considering abolishing Common Core altogether, with Indiana’s decision earlier this year to ditch the program seen as a victory for conservatives.”

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

Members, I wanted to share an experience I just had. I was at a gas station, filling up. Next to me, was a Guyanese family, with two children in their car. I began speaking to them, about Common Core. When I asked the son, a 6th grader, if he learned about Islam, he was hesitant in his answer. So then I asked him if “Common Core” is telling students, that they don’t need their parents and that they should not tell their parents, what they are learning, through “Common Core”, the boy said, “yes”. I wish I had a picture of the look on his parents face, when the boy said yes.. I also asked the boy if he knew that “dabbing”, was “devil worship”. The boy also answered “yes” and told me, parents are not supposed to know about this. God, I hate to be right, when it comes to this crud.

UPDATE: A male professor (a huge jackass) came into the bathroom where my daughter was in the stall and he used the standup male urinal right next to her. She didn’t realize it until she went to wash her hands—[my son, Name Withheld] IS FUMING!

This is a SERIOUS issue. I have two adult children attending Stony Brook University and I just got a alarming phone call from my daughter. Both of my kids are there today for their orientation.

My daughter called me fully DISGUSTED and OUTRAGED that they have been expected to sit and listen to a REQUIRED seminar on why WHITE PEOPLE HAVE PRIVILEGE and what they can do about it.

Including how to treat TRANSGENDERS and the whole LGBTQ COMMUNITY without offending them. There is no longer going to be the use of the words he/she—they must use the pronoun THEY to address their male or female counterparts while on campus.

Furthermore they were watching a movie and in that movie they accused WHITE AMERICA of calling all MUSLIMS TERRORISTS!

I told my daughter to unenroll and I told her to tell my son to get the hell outa there! Where are our elected officials, where is my elected state senator and my congress members??? How is any of this acceptable to any of them????

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

I’m a retired teacher and I don’t like common core. I tutored in math and common core math is ridiculous. Taking two minutes to solve a problem that can be solved in 15 seconds and still no guarantee that the answer will be correct, all so a child doesn’t have to memorize their math facts. It guarantees that people will be buying Bill Gates’ computers for the next hundred years because this generation of kids aren’t going to know how to do math on their own.

Here is another post from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

“Members, our children are being told to lie and withhold information from us, about what they are learning in school.
LAST YEAR MY SON’S “HEALTH CLASS” TEACHER, WROTE ON THE BOARD, “DO YOU LIE TO YOUR PARENTS”? When I asked the Principal, what the he!! is going on, she said that she had to ask the teacher, “in what context it was said”. I yelled at her and told the Principal, that there is no “context” in which that sentence, should be written, on the board. Of course, I did not receive an answer. Schools are lying through their teeth, to cover their a$$e$. Don’t believe a word that the school says. They lie and bully.”

My daughter’s school did this last year, While she had been taking HS & college classes, morons were allowed to take silly/ meaningless HS classes for the same credits toward Val/Sal. ( She had been taking college classes since 8th grade). One of her professors docked her for not being PC, bringing her total points down knocking her out of Val. position. She had more than enough points to graduate, came home & asked if she could leave school. Absolutely! You don’t need their BS approval!

Last year my son was in 7th grade and his English teacher gave them a packet that she put together herself all about immigration laws and such…..it was VERY biased and totally democrats based. Even bashed Trump a time or two. My son gave it to us because he had a feeling it wasn’t right. We told him not to finish it and we called her out on it. We said it was not her place at all to be teaching our son anything political and then we asked if that was school curriculum. My husband also told her that people in the news talk radio would love to get a hold of this and have a hay day with what is being taught in a classroom. She was speechless at times…..very apologetic and stumbles over herself more than once. I honestly think had we taken it to the principal or board she would have gotten in trouble and she knew that.

Here is yet another comment from the anti-Common Core FB group page:

Warning…long post! Please stay with me! I had a love/hate relationship with the charter school my kids attended in AZ. They were so strict with the kids, and sometimes I felt like they didn’t recognize each child as an individual. I often felt like my kids were robbed of their carefree elementary school days because of the incredibly high expectations from their school. I have to say that tonight, after leaving kindergarten orientation in our new home state of IL, I have a longing for that school that I have never felt before. Being told by my son’s kindergarten teacher that he should never be told to “sound out a word” or that if he spells apple “a-p-l” it will be counted as correct makes me feel anything from puzzled to infuriated. Discovering that phonics is only taught twice a week from now until Christmas and then only once a week after that honestly blows my mind. Hearing that they will work on math in the morning for a set period of time and then again in the afternoon for a FIFTY minute stretch is mind boggling. What five year old can sit through fifty minutes of MATH–the same amount of time my sixth grader has??? We have debated half day vs full day and wondered if we did the right thing by choosing half day, but honestly, isn’t it the QUALITY of the education that matters more than the QUANTITY? Please don’t tell me that they cannot manage to teach everything to a half day classroom because I have three children with one heck of an education that came from a half day kindergarten program that packed more core knowledge into those kids than my son will get in kindergarten and first grade combined AND they had art, music, PE, or library, and recess every single day. Ugh. Anyway, my question is does anyone use Spalding in their homeschool curriculum? I have previously been afraid of homeschooling, but I might have to take the plunge! Where do I start??? 

And here is a reply to said post:

Yes, incorrect spelling is accepted as long as it sounds correct – especially in early elementary. I’ve seen that pretty frequently now. Do what is right for your son. There is no hurry for him to be on the fast track despite the under-the-surface pressure (believe me, I’ve felt it). A great resource for homeschooling (or even if you’re just thinking about HS) is the Crossing Over to Homeschooling group here on FB. Wonderful, very supportive parents who understand.

And another reply:

Kindergarten is now the Boot Camp Moment. Classroom drill instructors seem unbothered shoving 70 month-olds into a rush-hour of academic traffic … because some basement gnome alleges it’s the ideal moment to vaccinate them with “grit” and “rigor”. And these academic tykes are denied recess and songs and giggles … because those would be indicators of unseriousness. And education is, above all else, an extra-serious business. Even for cherubs still ill-at-ease knotting their own sneakers. Denis Ian.

And yet another reply:

Welcome to Illinois. I have also had to deal with this. I took my 2nd grader out of school. First thing we did in homeschool was sounding out words and vocabulary. He could not sound anything out and it was acceptable and correct for him to spell Rake/ Rak. So many parents are blind.

Also her teacher asked parents who they were voting for, certain students said trump, John said the teacher said I wouldn’t trust that man running the country or give him my money, I asked her again the teacher said this, she said yes, needless to say, I telephoned the principal and this was discussed”

And here is another post from said group:

“I hope you are well, I wanted to share a story from my daughter yesterday which I personally can’t share because of her job but you certainly can pass it along to the group. Please protect her privacy.
My daughter is a kindergarten teacher. She is well aware of CC and hasn’t seen much of it in her urban area, until now. She would see bits and pieces. I’d ask how are you going to teach the transgender platform etc? Yesterday there was a meeting of all the teachers. Last year their was new curriculum given, some used it others did not. This year again new curriculum, the teachers tossed it aside and said, I’m doing what I know is good for kids this is inappropriate. At the meeting this was discussed. The principal said, we have new curriculum and if you think you are going to close the door and do your own thing, that will not work. Teachers pointed out that it was not developmentally appropriate and that they NEED to teach the letters of the alphabet and test their knowledge etc. They were told no, that is not the program. Again, the teachers responded they need to know this and we need to assess them to know where they are etc. You mean you are going to allow 4 years of students fail and then decide this is not a good program because PSSA’s are showing the children do not know the basic fundamentals because they were never taught and now we need to fix it? We can’t do this we can’t allow our children to fail. They were told, find another job if you aren’t going to follow the program. My daughter’s response, what are they going to do when they have no mentors because the whole team has left and gotten another job?”

This is the day that the Communists invaded Poland, 1939. 17 days after the Nazis invaded Poland.

But a priest from Poland said to me that the communism in the american schools is worse than the communism he knew in Poland. For, he said, here the communist schools are filled with sexual corruption, and now we can add islamization.

Parma Ohio teachers talk openly off school campus about their schools being communistic because Parma has many polish, ukrainians etc who lived it. So the teachers are wise, and have organized to stage walk outs, looking for different employment. I gave some truth on the city of parma facebook! And they now have me blocked.! The sister of former congressman dennis kucinich lives in Parma. She voting for Trump. She has prayed in my house. She worked in a public school in Parma, and she told me that their are so many red flags in that school, that she quit. Parma Ohio has constellation schools. Most parents there think constellation schools have NO common core. This because they use text books that parents can see. Well i see on line that it is common core there. Can anyone of you shed some further truth about these constellation schools???

So I have a story! I was talking to a friend tonight whose grandson, who is 12, goes to public school in FL. He was sent home on the first day of school with an assignment that said “name 8 people that you think should die”. And listed things like job, age, etc. REALLY???????? How Common Core is this? Her daughter phoned her really upset and they talked about it. He took the paper back to school with the comment “my child will not complete this assignment”. I wonder how many parents responded in the same way? This is horrific and needs to stop. This is basic Hitler training!!

UNBELIEVABLE! A young man enrolled in a public high school asked my friend’s daughter, a homeschool girl, to his homecoming dance. They attend church together. His invite was adorably thoughtful. “Mickey needs Minnie. Tigger needs Pooh. I need to go to homecoming with you!” After he first asked her dad if it was okay, he asked her and she accepted Only to be told by the school that she can’t go because she does NOT go to an “accredited” homeschool program that could vouch for her character.
From the document the school sent her mom, “Guests from online schools or guests who are homeschooled will need to submit a letter of good standing on school letterhead, including contact information, from a school official/administrator from an accredited program of study.”
Good grief! A young man with the guts to ask her dad FIRST is probably a better judge of her character than any school administrator.

Here is a post I found in an anti-Common Core FB group page:

I have been deeply immersed in the analysis and resistance to the Common Core Agenda for many years now.

My involvement began when my children, both of significant intellect and eagerness to learn, with a love of school, began to display a fear of, and a loathing for, public schooling.

Their behavior and attitudes changed. My once endlessly positive, relaxed and happy children became negative, stressed and saddened.

I set about working with the teachers and administrators to find solutions but I also began researching the new terminology and teaching methods I was hearing from them. I also began noticing that the homework given to my children was increasingly nonsensical as each one in turn began having meltdowns while attempting to do their work.

Something was terribly wrong and the constant barrage of “something is wrong with your child”, often spoken behind a used car salesman smile that was also preaching on about how they will make my kids “critical thinkers” and “college and career ready” for “21st century jobs” set off alarms within me.

I trusted these people… And they exploited that trust. For whatever reason, be it foul intent, ignorance or a gag order from higher ups in the education hierarchy, I and every single parent of a child in a public school, along with our children, were betrayed!

I gave many of them a pass because as I researched such documents as the “Race to the Top” grant applications and the US Dept of Educations “Promoting Grit, Tenacity and Perseverance Report”, along with the personal, professional and financial ties between leading politicians, bureaucrats, charitable foundations, teacher (and non-teacher) unions and corporate enterprises, I discovered many of them had also been deceived as well.

Over the last several years, those who I spoke with and began to see the truth of the Common Core Agenda, administrator and teacher alike, were forced out of their jobs and replaced or forced to cower in silent repose, abandoning their virtue in exchange for their own survival… Or hop on the bandwagon in exchange for promotions and financial advancements.

And that leads me to today…

Among the things I began to learn through my research were such subjects as “Multiple Intelligence Theory”, educational Pedagogies, brain development, child psychology and much, much more.

Being informed on these topics now leads me to ask questions of my child’s educators and administrators that I have discovered they either don’t know a damned thing about… Or are playing stupid to avoid having to answer for their malfeasance!

Just this past week, during “Parent Night” in our New Jersey Intermediate School, the Vice Principal (once an elementary level teacher, now administrator) came and sat in during a class orientation I was attending. I was also the only parent to make it there.

He began spouting the usual lingo… Critical thinking, rigor, 21st century skills, etc,… That the Principal had cheerfully proclaimed in the auditorium an hour earlier, when all of us, the parents, were told that we must join them, joyfully, to prepare our kids for “21st Century Jobs that we (the educators) don’t know what will be”. That’s a quote.

And so I asked him if he was aware that “critical thinking” takes place in the prefrontal cortex which the children in his school (grades 5-8) will not even start to develop until their mid-teens and won’t be fully developed until their mid 20’s. Additionally, I asked (and apparently informed him) that requiring children who were not old enough to have biologically developed this part of the brain, creates extreme stress, which then activates, and negatively effects, the “primitive” substructure of the brain called the “Limbic System”. That the limbic system is where the “fight or flight” response is biologically hardwired into every human, child and adult.

I was quite positive that I had just triggered his limbic system as his eyes widened and jaw dropped ever so slightly, as his body involuntarily shifted in his seat.

His response: “I’ll have to look into that.”

As a side note, the young but veteran teacher also sitting at the table involuntarily nodded in the affirmative and seemed to barely contain a smile. That teacher was educated and knew that the words I spoke were truth and that I was not just some “helicopter parent” who could be easily snowed.

It has been a week now, since that meeting and I can only assume that one of two things are happening:

The VP is still doing his research

Or

He knew full well that he and the school were going to continue administering this psychologically abusive pedagogy and there are meetings being held to figure out a way to avoid being exposed for what they are doing.

Perhaps it’s the former and, if so, there may be some hope.

But I doubt that… Highly!

I am convinced that, even if they despise what they are doing (perhaps being forced to do), they will continue unabated with its implementation.

That they know full well the hell and abuse of this “rigor” and “critical thinking” they are demanding, under threat of failure and peer-based humiliation for my children, will harm them whether they survive it or not.

I also believe that they will continue to blame the parents, teachers and the children, me, mine and others, for any shortcomings.

And I don’t think they care.

They will continue to administer that abuse.

They will force that teacher to teach despair, even as I know she is trying to protect her students from it… I saw that within her and in that I do retain a modicum of hope, even as I must acknowledge that she will fail, if not with my child, with many others.

In the meantime, I am left with the task of trying to save my children from these horrors and finding a way to get them through it all intact and psychologically whole.

As a single father with full custody and no support, living in the very poverty that others, specifically educators, can only talk about as an abject concept taught in the very universities my children will be denied entrance to, this is no easy task.

I am terrified by the very real, and likely prospect, that I will fail at least in part or, and God save them, fully.

I, like many of you reading this, see my children suffering every damned day… Even while they don’t always realize it themselves.

Hell is no longer just an abstract concept of Dante or religious doctrine… Hell is a place called Public Education and the Devil and his Demons are running the damned place, torturing children, parents and teachers clear down to the Ninth Circle.

May God have Mercy on us all.

-Michael Bohr, Daddy

And another post from an anti-Common Core FB group page:

I’m gonna give this one more shot…..
Because I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that people either don’t get it or don’t care. And I’m stubborn like that.
iReady is measuring student performance against standards that the Commissioner has admitted are 55% and 60% FLAWED.
Do people understand what that means?
The COMMISSIONER has ADMITTED that 55% of the math standards and 60% of the ELA standards are in need of revisions.
But we are currently assessing every single student in NYS K-8 on the (majorly – as in majority) flawed standards.
So, if your child does not perform well on the assessments, they are rated poorly performing.
But if the DO perform well on the assessments, they are proven to have mastered something 60% erroneous.
The next step, is to spend your tax dollars and use the results of the assessments to develop curriculum and instruction to further direct students to the flawed standards.
And then throw it all away and start over with the revised standards next year.
OR throw away the assessments as the useless measure that they are because really, who wants to know how well their children have learned the wrong thing? 

He, she, or ze?  Sounds like the University of Michigan has caught the transgender insanity:  http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2016/09/28/u-m-students-can-choose-personal-pronouns/91211850/

Here is another comment from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group page:

The school that our youngest two go to, they do not like me very much. I send in the REFUSAL (every year) with the parental federal law. Last year our (then 3rd grader) was tardy 7 days, because they refused to let him go to school. All because we REFUSED the SBAC testing. This year I had a meeting within 1 weeks of school. I brought up how our son was tardy=because they said if he went to school he would be made to take the test (even if they told him that, he would NOT have done it). CC is the most ridiculous thing amd I think it is sad how parents (in our area), do not care or the do not know about CC!!!!!

And here is another comment from the same group:

Last year I had some of my 10 year old’s papers that had glaring spelling errors that had not been corrected or marked wrong and I took them with me when I went in. She had been given high grades for this work. I asked the teachers what the common core spelling standards were (knowing there were none) and they had to respond that there were none and as such they didn’t care if she had words misspelled. That was my chance to engage them in a conversation about other problems with common core. They (there were 2 of them) looked terribly uncomfortable because I was RIGHT. And that was when I dropped off about 30 of Rachel’s bookmarks and said they could pass them out if they liked. Both of those teachers are in different grades this year and thankfully I don’t have to deal with them this year. I am collecting various papers this week for my conferences next week with these newbies. They give her great grades for poor work in spelling not knowing that I make her write out her spelling words after I get her tests until she gets them correct.

At Cornell High School in Pennsylvania, WWII vets were invited onto the football field to carry the American flags.  At that moment, the cheerleaders kneeled (perhaps to protest the National Anthem.)    I checked the student code of conduct and it said that actions considered as insolent and disrespectful against school guests would NOT be tolerated.  Yet, as far as I know, the cheerleaders got away with it.  Guess the school didn’t think that dissing our National Anthem in front of WWII vets was disrespectful.  Speaks volumes, doesn’t it?

Here is another comment from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group page:

When we were on vacation this summer, my teen needed to sign his name in cursive and write his address to obtain a temporary fishing license. The clerk looked at him and said you must not be from Vermont because the kids here can’t write in cursive nor know their address and praised him. She then proceeded to tell him that she had to sign a 17 year olds signature the day before because he didn’t know how. Omg, my kids finally understand why I am so concerned over education.

Saw this post in an anti-Common Core FB group:

My 17 year old was told today at school that Columbus didn’t discover America and that the United States was never a Christian Nation. When he disagreed he was told he was a racist SERIOUSLY, WHEN IS THIS GOING TO STOP?

When my son got sent to the office because he disagreed, he asked why they were wasting their time on him just because he did not gree with them when there are kids selling drugs in the halls.

Here is a post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group page:

Well, it has happened. NE caved last year and now our children are being taught common core math. My 5th grade daughter needed help on her math homework, division, and the instructions were for the insane common core method. We were not even informed that they were now going to be taught this garbage. I looked up online and found that they caved last year, for the money, of course.

Found out today that the app CLASS DOJO is being utilized in my kids class!! UGHHHH….. I know this is a massive social, emotional psychology data collection mechanism.

Anyone have any first hand knowledge about Class Dojo, any good articles or analysis about CLASS DOJO I could share with a few teachers.

Fortunately, our teacher was good enough to give my son a FAKE username, but she did not ask us (parents) if it was OK for kid to participate at all. This all came up in casual conversation on what she is doing to manage her student/classroom “behavior”. more ughhhh…..

I swear, as diligent as we are about opting out, limiting technology in classroom and doing our best to protect our kids, I am hit at every turn with some ridiculous, unnecessary TECH ED crud! Today, I feel like the fish who is swimming up stream! ok…Rant over!

Any help is greatly appreciated. BTW…my kids attend a faith based, private school.

Here is another post of a parent that Ohio is threatening to hold back their child because of not taking the Common Core tests:

I need some advice. Does this sound like they will not pass my son to 4th grade if I refuse to let him take this test? Also, less than a week before the test and they are telling parents not to make doctor appointments? Most doctor appointments are made months in advance and my son has a specialist appointment one of these days.

This new teacher Krista Duffield, at Memphis Middle School thought it would be great for the junior high students to role play.

A character named Ash said, “Well… chapter one… I’ll talk about all the shootings at schools and malls and theaters and such… That one is simple. You just take away all the guns.”

Here is another comment from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group page:

Taken from my personal page. Any ideas about the best way to handle this nightmare?

Teacher parent conferences are tonight. One teacher, a Mr. Lucchese (chemistry), actually promotes the LGQTB agenda and has been posting “new” gender references all over the interior walls of the high school. Maybe it is a blessing that he was booked when I tried to select ten minutes with him tonight. It seems a student had apparently put a paper up on or near one of his, that read genders are male and female. This teacher had terrible things to say about this anonymous student. I could really use a prayer chain before I get there tonight🙏🏻

And here is another comment from the same group:

I received an email from my son’s principal’s supervisor. It blatantly said he will not pass to the 4th grade unless he takes the 3rd grade Terra Nova Reading test. My husband and I are struggling with this and more than you know. My son is ADHD and I highly suspect ODD. We can’t get him in to assess for ODD for 6 months! His defiance is almost more than we can handle. No amount of reward or consequences motivate him. Now, we have to fight this. Even though we want to, we are not able to hire an attorney. Does anyone know an attorney or group in Ohio that fights Common core issues? We are not able to travel out of state to meet with one. If this is not possible, I am afraid I will have to let him take this test and feel like I betrayed our cause doing so.

Here is yet another comment from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group page:

Question. Please let me know if anyone has experienced this. Our school district in Chino Valley Unified (California) is beyond Gaga for the entire “Attendance Counts” campaign where the school receives $47 per child everyday they’re in school. I received a letter lecturing me on the “importance of attending Kindergarten”. The letter basically advised me that if I have issues getting my Kindergartener to school every day I *must* comply by letting the school know right away by calling the CHILD WELFARE office or my schools Attendance clerk.

My daughter has missed a total of 4 days of school since August 12. My daughter is sickly and gets dangerously high fevers because she has issues with her white blood cells. So yes, she’s missed school. She will probably end up missing more because of it. Should I respond back to these people? Have any other parents dealt with this?

I was speaking to another mom of a Kindergartner, whose daughter missed 3 days of school. The school threatened this mother that they will EXPEL a 5-6 year old KINDERGARTENER!

Is this entire thing pure ridiculousness or am I being overly sensitive?

Here is a reply to said post:

Oh my gosh. You don’t know how much this hits home for me. I got a first warning letter from the school district 3 weeks after my daughter’s last absence from school. She’s only been absent six days of the entire school year. And not in a row and not even in the same week. They were all valid absences because she was sick. Now I’m on some kind of list as a negligent parent for not sending my kid to school. It’s gone beyond ridiculous.

Here is another post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group page revealing yet more bullying from Ohio:

I have a question that maybe anyone can answer, but I’m especially interested in an answer from anyone in Ohio.

Ohio is an opt out state. I have opted my children out of the common core testing for several years now. I’ve never had a problem. Our supeintendent agrees with my husband and I and supports us. This past Friday my husband, a police officer in the schools during the school year, was informed that if we didn’t let our third grade daughter take the language arts part of this year’s test, she wouldn’t be able to be promoted to 4th grade. This child is in the gifted program in language arts and math and reads on a 7th grade level. Wth??? We have boys in 5th and 6th grades and they never took these tests and had straight A’s and obviously were promoted. So what is the difference now??? Has something changed? They couldn’t really explain to my husband why, justntjat it was federally mandated. What Did I miss? Its bad enough that now to graduate there’s a point system and our son who’s a junior and freshman daughter have to take these awful tests to earn enough points to graduate regardless of their grades. The only way out of that is to score high enough on the ACT in lieu of the testing. I’m not terribly confident in my ability to pull it off but it may be time to find a faith based homeschool curriculum. I apologize for this lengthy post but I want to know as much as I can before I have to speak with the principal and likely administration. Thank you all and God bless! 

Since this is for eight year olds, I think this is inappropriate homework:

My son is in online schooling. This morning he was learning to divide whole numbers by decimals. Practice questions and all. Got all the practice questions correct. All had do was make the divisor into a whole number and the decimal in dividend same space the right side did with the divisor. Simple enough. Next comes the quiz. Only now, the divisor was a whole number, while the dividend was a decimal. He was not given instruction in this, so he scored 3 out of 5 correct. Which has me wondering WHY his quiz was not the same as the practice questions? Our children are being tested and evaluated with tests, the tests not reflecting what they currently learned. See my point?

Needless to say, my daughter freaked out (inside- she held it in), until she saw me.
We walked back to her school and shared this information with the assistant principal. I hope it is taken care of…..we’ll see.

Here is another post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group:

So this morning my ten year old asks me on the way to school.. who did you vote for? Sensing a set up of some kind I told him, you’re too young to worry about things like that.. Why? He then told me that all of his class voted for Hillary. We were already at the front of the school so I didn’t have time to delve further into this conversation so I left wondering.. What does this mean? I live in West Texas and know for a fact that the majority of people around here support Trump and very few that I am aware of for Hillary so… Where is this coming from? My first instinct would be the parents but again like I said in this area Hillary support is sparse so what would push an entire group of 10 year olds to be of the opinion that Hillary Clinton is the best choice for president and furthermore what does he mean by my whole class voted for Clinton? Did they have a fake election in his class? And if so was there someone guiding them in their beliefs? I definitely need to get further into this when he gets out of school but it bothered me to think that somehow someone has manipulated my child into being disappointed in me if I tell him I voted for Trump.. if only I could afford private school.

While looking up Hitler Youth, and what happened to those who refused to join, I found this:

“By the Summer of 1933, as in other areas of social life, the Nazis had dissolved almost all rival organizations, with the exception of the Catholic youth organizations, which took rather longer to close down. Boys and girls came under massive pressure to join the Hitler Youth and its affiliated organizations. Teachers were obliged to set selected pupils essays with titles such as ‘Why am I not in the Hitler Youth?’ and students who did not join had to endure continual taunting from their teachers in the classroom and their fellow students in the playground; as a last resort, they could even be refused the school-leaving certificate when they graduated, if they did not become members by this time. Also there was the pressure that if your child was not a member of the Hitler Youth he/she would be barred from participating in any form of sports because the Nazis had a monopoly over this as well. Another factor at play here was ‘apprenticeships’ being offered by employers, a very important issue in those days. This would be refused if the subject was not a member of the Hitler Youth. After 25 March 1939, membership was legally binding from the age of ten, and parents could be fined if they failed to enroll their children, or even imprisoned if they actively tried to stop them from joining.”

Does this sound like where Common Core is headed?  Or is it just me?

Like this lesson plan?  Thought not.

Here is a comment from a story that I already have in here:

My daughter’s 7th grade teacher brought in a Scholastic article about the election which only mentioned Trump and Clinton. They were told they had to decide between them based on the article. My daughter protested that Gary Johnson and Jill Stein were not present and she was told that they weren’t known by enough people so they weren’t important enough for the article. She continued to voice her support for Gary Johnson and was told to choose one or the other or get a 0. She said she would take the 0. Eventually, the teacher relented and she said she was given a 50%. When I spoke with the teacher the next day, she apologized, said she’d “be more inclusive next time,” that she gave my daughter the chance to explain who Gary Johnson was (instead of including him herself), and that the assignment grade would not count against her as it was considered “bell work.” I’m still ticked off though!

Here is another post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core FB group:

So my 1st grader got a 67% bc she didn’t fill in the little circles to show how many were being subtracted but got the answer correct? Shouldn’t kids be taught to know the answer without having to draw a picture? Ugh!! That’s a 100% in my book.

evil-math

And here is a reply to said comment:

My friend’s son had a similar problem. Under his state’s old standards, he successfully memorized his math facts. The next school year, they switched to CC and the new standards are a year behind what they used to have. So he was presented with the same math problems… and being a little boy who saw this as baby work and wanted to finish his boring worksheet as fast as possible, wrote down all the correct answers without drawing all the CC-required circles and dots. They were marked wrong and he now has a lower grade on material he already mastered the year before.

And another reply:

They don’t care if the children are learning correct info. They care if the children are learning to take commands (even to do things incorrectly.). When my children were unfortunately in public school, they would get their correct answers marked wrong as well. They weren’t permitted to use long division, etc. Everything had to be done in this asinine way….circles, columns, 20 steps instead of 2. That’s what was graded, not the correct answer. Ridiculous. The history changed in CC is even more frightening than the pointless math….

So I am a bus driver for my local school district….and this afternoon, I over heard the kids in my bus (elementary mind you) talking about the election…..every one, and I do mean every one of the students in board (53 to be exact) said the would vote for Hillary! GAH! NO! NO! NO! NO! This can’t be happening! Even my own children, who ride my bus….said they want Hillary! I quickly corrected my own 2 children and explain Hillary is the last choice we need and why Trump is going to win. My 2 children now see why I have votes Trump and we’re quick to correct their friends on the bus…..

But where did Hillary get all the support from kids this young? It’s so wrong!

Found this post from a pro-homeschooling FB group page:

Looking for advise, my boys still attend ps and I found out yesterday that my 3rd grader, his class as a whole have to earn their recess. They are a talkative bunch and instead of teacher taking away recess from individuals, or taking a letter of the word recess, loosing 5 min per letter, she’s punishing entire class by not having any at all unless they earn time. They are required to have 20 min of physical unstructured activity. They sit for 7 hrs and work, 30 min lunch. What is thoughts on this. We’re not happy.

And another post from said group:

Yesterday my son hands me his backpack and runs to the bathroom. He came back and said “I didn’t use any of my bathroom break coupons”…. I hear a lot of really horrifying stories (as a mother) that my children aren’t allowed to do certain things. How is going to the bathroom a privilege? How exactly do you earn the right to go to the bathroom? Oh yeah, and if they failed to do their homework, they don’t get recess. They have to sit in the classroom and work on their homework. It was not like this when I was a kid. We went to the bathroom when we needed to and we had recess no matter what happened.

And another comment:

That’s exactly how my son’s 3rd grade teacher ran her room. I think my son lost recess more then he had it the entire year and the class lost it for really petty stuff. His teacher didn’t allow any class work to come home for homework so if kids didn’t finish in class they had to sit and do their work while watching their friends play. I even found out she was taking specials (art, music, PE, and library) away from kids. We never had one behavioral report before his 3rd grade year and all of a sudden I was getting notes sent home for some of the stupidest stuff. My son got up every morning crying and got off the bus ever afternoon bawling his eyes out because he said he was being bullied by this teacher. I called her and put her on speaker phone with my son in the room and when I said I just don’t know what to believe because my son’s never lied to us and he’s never had disciplinary issues l, his teacher started yelling at me and calling my son a liar. She hung up on me and refused to see us for another conference and refused to answer and of my notes or emails. I called the principal and absolutely nothing was done. 3rd grade was a nightmare year for us. The whole class would loose the following weeks recess for talking too loud on Friday. Kids who feel they have nothing to loose will not just magically straighten up and behave, it has the opposite effect. Doesn’t take a college graduate to figure that out.

I have a friend who is a teacher, and is conservative ( an anomaly.) He has to stay in the closet with his political beliefs. He cannot even post on Facebook that he supports Trump because he will be blacklisted!

Here is yet another post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

I am so angry I could scream! My daughter who is a college student was just basically reprimanded for half an hour about her political views by a college professor. This is an arts class not a political science class. My husband and I are paying big money for her to go to College. I feel she is being bullied. Why is it okay for Hillary supporters too be upset about the results of the election, and basically be upset with my daughter because her candidate happened to win. Now these people want to get rid of the Electoral College! Dear God in Heaven please intervene with some common sense!

Here is an alarming post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

WHILE PARENTS IN OHIO WERE SLEEPING, THE STATE DID THIS!
They took away our choice! They attacked our parental rights! We must fight back, make our voices heard! Get involved at your schools. Talk to teachers and fellow parents. That is the only way we are going to get this out of OHIO! Our children are depending on us!

I found it, but i don’t think the news is good (but i’m also not a lawyer & not an expert, i’ve just read a lot of bills so i’m familiar with how to read laws). basically, as i read it, Ohio doesn’t allow opt outs of any kind & the only way to get out of taking the test is if you’re a “limited English proficient student”. you can take an “alternate test”, but that must be a Board approved test…. i’m guessing that’s the “Terra Nova” test you mentioned? & they can hold students back for not taking the test. i am so sorry. 😦 your laws in Ohio need to change. i don’t know if this will make sense, but i copied the applicable law, my comments are in CAPS in brackets.

(C) (2) A district board may, for medical reasons or other good cause, excuse a student from taking an assessment administered under this section on the date scheduled, but that assessment shall be administered to the excused student not later than nine days following the scheduled date. [SO THEY STILL MUST TAKE THE TEST]
(C) (3) The governing authority of a chartered nonpublic school may excuse a limited English proficient student from taking any assessment administered under this section. However, no governing authority shall prohibit a limited English proficient student from taking the assessment.

[THE NEXT PART IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION, UNFORTUNATELY] However, a district board may choose not to promote to the next grade level any student who does not take an assessment administered under this section or make up an assessment as provided by division (C)(2) [SEE ABOVE] of this section and who is not exempt from the requirement to take the assessment under division (C)(3) [SEE ABOVE] of this section.

So, I got this E-mail from the Superintendent of Montgomery County Public Schools, in Maryland. This is Metro-DC, for those who don’t know. Personally, I found it pretty offensive. I don’t recall getting an e-mail like this either time Obama was elected. What do you think?

A Message from Superintendent Jack R. Smith
Dear Members of the MCPS Community:
I am writing to share with you how Montgomery County Public Schools is assisting our staff and students in processing the outcome of Tuesday’s presidential election. This election season has been particularly difficult. It caused a great deal of emotion among many members of our community. We want to take this opportunity to reiterate the values that are foundational to this school system.
Now that the election is over, it is our job to restate our core values as a school system—demonstrating that we respect and care for every person in our community. First and foremost, we must reassure our staff and students that our school buildings are safe places where we truly value and respect every single individual and do not tolerate bullying or hate speech. The diversity of our community and the many cultures, languages, and religions that make up our school system continues to be our greatest strength. We are better when we all work together, learn together, and listen to each other.
We must have open and respectful conversations about the lessons of living in a democracy. That is our commitment as educators, and on this day honoring our veterans, we will help students move forward in understanding our democracy and how our nation works and endures. We will teach our students the important principles that are the foundation of our nation and we will do all we can to continue to foster a culture of understanding and respect for everyone.
Our schools are a resource for families as well. Counselors are available to help students process any concerns or feelings they have about the election. Curricular resources have been provided to assist teachers in discussing the election. We will continue to draw on the expertise of the Equity Initiatives Unit to help forge stronger understanding of the many perspectives in our community, state and nation.
Ultimately, we must reinforce at every opportunity that our schools are safe places where students learn and where we all work together to build a community that values and respects every person.
Sincerely,
Jack R. Smith, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools 

Here is a reply to said post:

Got pretty much the same thing from Chicago Public Schools.

Here is another post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

Went to the Parent-Teacher conferences for both of my kids today. My daughter’s teacher was the only one that brought up Common Core twice in the work that my daughter had been doing this semester. I said “I’m going to be so glad when Common Core is eliminated!”
Her response was quick, saying ” It’s’ not going to happen. This is the way the school system wants things taught.”
I’m wondering if this response was scripted by the school district (??)

Here is an alarming post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

Be happy if you still have parent teacher conferences. Ours have been eliminated.

Everyone wants to read this. IT is the COMIC BOOK that is given out to AMERICAN SCHOOL CHILDREN as part of the UN GLOBAL GOALS lesson plan. IT meets all common core standards and there is a whole lesson plan for this. Read through the comic book, every page. Notice all of the hijab? Notice how the peace and justice page has a photo of a gun broken inhalf? notice that these are the Global Goals of 2030??
There is not Agenda 21…it was REPLACED with Agenda 2030 and it is being TAUGHT TO YOUR KIDS.
FYI- this is the 3-5 grade lesson plan.

Here is an encouraging post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

I had conferences this week, two for my youngest who has an IEP and one for the middle one. Yet, somehow all three teachers said the same thing to me:
We hate testing. We went into education to teach. I used to have fun in my job. The children suffer, we suffer. We are in a constant panic.
They said A LOT of things that made me realize we are a team. The most enlightening tonight was my son’s teacher (middle child). When I told her I belonged to a grass root campaign to get rid of common core she HUGGED me and said you are giving me goosebumps. Please you and everyone you know, keep fighting on the outside- A LOT OF US ARE FIGHTING IN HERE TOO!

Never in a million years would I have thought this woman would have hugged me. I thought I was going in for battle tonight over not allowing Kyle to take AIR, Compass, Class Dojo, etc.

So, keep it up! Speak out! Invite your friends- keep spreading the word. Call your state representatives. If 3/3 teachers in a public school said these things to me THEY ARE NOT ALONE.

Here is a  post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

My 5th grade son’s math teacher got so confused in class about how to solve a word problem that another student tried to help explain it to him. Eventually another teacher had to come in to show him and the class how to solve it. How can I be confident in his teaching ability when he doesn’t even get it!?
My son gets so stressed out about math, I’ve basically said that as long as he tries, I don’t care about grades (which is NOT like me!), and to just hang in there until Trump gets rid of CC!

And here  is a reply to the post:

6th grade math is even harder… my baby who has been a straight A student, got a D in math this past nine weeks….
Here is another post from the same group:
Not common crap related but it shows how controlling schools are now (at least mine).
My daughter Danica was trying to gather phone numbers from her friends at school (since this was her last day because she’s being homeschooled), and the “phone number police” at the school said it’s not allowed. People are not allowed to share phone numbers. WTF?! Schools are taking control of EVERYTHING. SMH.

Here is a post from a Utah anti-Common Core group page:

So last March my son was in 8th grade. I had opted him out of all SAGE testing. The first time his English teacher got mad and said:oh your one of those kids! . I told him not to mind her. She was very abusive through out the year. The second time that same year they were very sneaky and had them take it in the computer. My son noticed in the corner it said SAGE testing. So he told her : I cannot take this test my mom opted me out of SAGE testing, she said yelling at the top of her lungs slamming her fists on the desk: IT’S A NORMAL ENGLISH TEST CAN YOU TAKE THAT? he didn’t . But did call me right after. That was the last straw! I called her and left a not so nice message saying she’s luck I didn’t have a car at that moment or I’d pay her a visit!in a few words. I was so sick and tired of her abuse! The next morning the officer of the School called me was extremely rude and said they would sue me and that I was banned from going to the school. I had already taken my son out of the school because we were moving in April anyway. This Sunday I was served with papers to appear in court for electronic harassment. It’s this Friday and was filled ouct.13th.!! I had said to the principal before how this woman has been abusing and mistreating my child and other students also. nothing was done but once a mother loses it and says something she regrets they take you to court?! My son prior to that had a boy threatened his life saying he would kill him! I filed a report with the Provo Police Department and they told me that the officer from the school would get back to me.He never did!! he only called me the next morning after I had left the message!! So this is where we’re at, if you don’t do what they say and complain about your child being abused nothing is done but once you do the same exact thing to the teacher they take you to court! If any of you are Christians in this group I would appreciate your prayers I really need them. this is so unnecessary and a waste of tax money just because of this vengeful police officer that can’t do his job right and is only there to protect the teachers and not the students. #IMNOTGUILTY#ONECALLISNOTHARESSEMENT#BEINGBULLIEDBYTHESYSTEM

 Here is a post that I found in an anti-Common Core group:

 

Brainwashing is subtle.

Brad McQueen is a public school teacher in Tucson, Arizona. He was also a Common Core insider who became aware of the dangers of curriculum.

Those dangers so alarmed McQueen that he wrote the anti-Common Core book The Cult of Common Core: Obama’s Final Solution for Your Child’s Mind and Our Country’s Exceptionalism.

One day recently, he discovered that a US Constitution/Bill of Rights poster that hung in his classroom was not teaching the truth. The poster, created by the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education had paraphrased the Second Amendment in such a way as to teach a lie. The poster read:

“You have the constitutional right to, in certain situations, ‘keep and bear arms’ without government interference.”

Note that whoever wrote the poster stated ‘in certain situations’ which is nowhere stated in the Second Amendment or Constitution.

McQueen goes on to explain that there is a purposeful effort to teach specific liberal concepts in today’s public education instead of the truth.

McQueen wrote:

“When I was working on the Common Core test, the PARCC exam, I was told that the Common Core way of writing and thinking demands that kids cite the ‘experts’ in the texts that are presented to them on the exam when writing their essays and not rely on their own thinking or opinions.”

“I was told that if they wrote about their OWN opinions or their OWN thinking that they would FAIL the Common Core test.”

“I was also told that they expected that teachers would mimic this new Common Core way of writing and thinking in their classroom instruction.

The true goal of Common Core is to have kids parrot back talking points, determined by the administration in power no doubt, rather than to truly think for themselves.”

“What if a teacher used the ‘expert’ opinion put forth on the erroneous U.S. Constitution poster I have in my classroom? With a few small changes in wording to our founding documents kids would be presented with quite a different view of their rights guaranteed in those same documents.”

“Kids instructed in the Common Core method of thinking and writing would know that they had better parrot back the ‘experts’ on that poster, or the experts in their Common Core aligned textbooks as their grades, their test scores, and their teachers’ paychecks may depend on their mastery of this skill.”

“Luckily, I caught the bogus wording of the Second Amendment on the class poster and my class and I compared the poster’s wording to the original document, the U.S. Constitution.”

“The kids in my class were furious and I liked that they were furious. It shows that our kids are still independent thinkers. However, as Common Core takes hold that will all be changing soon and perhaps in just one generation.”

Like McQueen, others have been warning that Common Core is more interested in training students to believe and think the way liberals want them to think and believe than they are in teaching the truths.

It is nothing more than a socialist propaganda brainwashing tool designed to raise a generation of good socialist comrades.

That’s why it is so important to repeal and replace Common Core in every state as soon as possible before it’s too late. As McQueen said, it could happen in just one generation and your kids and grandkids are that generation being targeted.

 

The top one is the Common Core way.   The bottom one is the regular way.

Here is another Islam assignment from 8th grade in Roxbury, NJ that involves memorization of the Islam conversion prayer and seems to direct students what they should be doing with their use of “you”.

After posting this in the Choose to Refuse Common Core group, I got the following reply:

I just found proof of this on the Milwaukee Standards site. This better not be happening to my 3rd grader in NYS. The following is long….Unit Name:
Human Development
Milwaukee Public Schools
Lesson Number:
11
Human Growth and Development Curriculum
Grade Level:
2
“My Awesome Body
” –
Anatomy
National Health Education Standards
Primary Focus
Standard 1
– Core Concepts
Students will comprehend concepts related to health promotion and disease prevention to enhance health.
Secondary Focus
Standard 8
– Advocacy
Students will demonstrate the ability to advocate for personal, family and community health.
What You Need to Know
Students w
ill:

learn each body part and its specific function. The body parts will be: head, eyes, mouth, nose
ears, neck, shoulders, arms, elbow, chest, back, legs, knees, feet, ankles and toes.

learn each reproductive body part and the medical terms for these body parts.
In the process of creating this curriculum; teachers, parents, school administrators, and religious
leaders were
surveyed to get their thoughts on
when
different aspects of Human Growth and
Development should be taught. There was consensus th
at the medical terms for body parts should
be used in the school setting
starting as early as Kindergarten
. This is an excellent lesson to partner
with the school nurse if possible. Use of the diagrams is optional based on the teacher’s
professional judgm
ent in regard to their school culture and individual classes.
If you are new to teaching sexuality education, practice saying genital terms aloud until you think you
will be comfortable using them with children. If the children become giggly, you might
say, “It’s okay to
giggle. But we need to use the correct words – penis, vulva, breast, and buttocks
– because all parts of the
body are important. When we talk about them correctly and comfortably, we learn the meaning, function
and value of our bodies. We are specifically discussing only the external anatomy, this is why
vulva
is
used, not
vagina
.
Materials

Outline drawing of a body

Overhead labels for body parts
(www.discoveryeducation.org
)

Color transparency of individual body parts. (Optional
– not
included in this curriculum)

Overhead projector

If overhead is not available, activity can be done with the body outline or felt body kit from
Carson Dellosa.

Blank paper

Crayons

Parent letter (for use only if including private body parts in lesson)
Procedures
(Get all slang terms on board and pictures of body parts. Have students discuss what they call them.

Asking students what are terms that students know for body parts? Put the terms on the board.

Show the 10 minute video “How the Human Body Works
-Kids
Animation
Video:

Explain to students that “In this room, we are going to use the medical words for
the parts of our
body
.” Replace the slang terms with
the medical terms.

“My Awesome Body
” –
Anatomy

Play ‘Simon Says’ to check for student’s understanding of the
names
of common (non-
reproductive) body parts. On the same day or another day, play Simon Says to review the
function
of body parts. Example: touch the body part that you: smell with, eat with, hear with,
your legs bend with, walk on, pumps blood, brings in oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide,
mixes up your food, etc.

For the reproductive organs
-teacher will cover function with the following organs:

Vulva
– this is where a baby comes out when born

Testicles –
this is where the cells (sperm) that make a baby are made

Penis
– this is where urine and sperm come out
OPTIONAL:
Use the overhead transparency to review the body parts. As teacher, model
placing a
label next to a body part. (Example: Say, “This is the elbow. I am going to place the
word elbow next to the elbow part.”) Ask students to point to a common body part. Have them
say the name and hand them the label to place next to the part.
Found in
the health book or at
www.discoveryeducation.org

End this lesson
by stressing how incredible the human body is and no matter who you are
, y our
body is special and can do great things
.

Ask the students to talk about some of the great things they do (ride a
bike, run, jump, read, etc.)

And another post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

I have been fighting our public school on behalf of my 4th grade daughter for years. I have been shown in word doc form what our state is forcing our children to learn and I’m horrified. As if they are all robots. My daughter has challenges (IEPs). When I got more involved when she repeatedly brought home D’s and F’s, it was like a miracle turnaround. She started getting straight A’s on everything. Long story short, I found out that the school told all the teachers that it’s a no win for anyone to fail, they just have to keep pushing the work, and they have been giving her the answers to the tests before the tests. I’m heartbroken as my daughter now feels ‘so smart’ and is in tears when she heard that I’m putting a stop to this by forcing them to ‘teach’ her instead. Here’s my question..I’m looking at a new charter school but don’t have any experience with charter schools. Do they follow Common Core? Ty!

By the way, this is not an isolated incident of kids being passed when they shouldn’t.  I myself, the author of this blog, have heard from my aunt how one of my cousin’s was passed when he shouldn’t have been and jokingly referred to the situation as “No Child Left Behind”.   She pulled out my cousin and another one of my cousins and is now homeschooling them.

Here is a post from the Choose to Refuse Common Core group:

Ok, I have 4 kids – 3 in school. 6th grader is an honor student, 2nd grader has been labeled as having a learning disability, preschooler is being labeled as having a learning disability…
Could this be the curriculum is too much for these little kids? I am very upset… Especially now my preschooler… ugh… HELP.

And here are some replies to said post:

Make sure they aren’t mis-identified. Schools get more money for kids labeled as special education. Are they really or is this something with the school? With all the data they are sharing and collecting now, that diagnosis will be with them from cradle to grave.

The pre-K through 3 is all age inappropriate. Any real early childhood educator can tell you that.I doubt there is anything wrong with your kids. I asked another anti-Common Core forum why they push too hard in the lower grades. They explained that none of the people who made the standards were early childhood experts. Also, they started in high school with standards and worked backwards. By the time they got to the lower grades, there was alot of material left over so they just rammed it into k through 3.

My daughter’s kindergarten experience was so bad, we put our other daughter in Montessori. They time how fast kindergarteners can read. It’s repulsive.

I am a Montessori teacher. I can tell you that most of what the teachers are seeing are kids who are not developmentally ready to sit still for long periods of time and learn math or language concepts that have not been properly explained, with concrete materials, and/or are developmentally to advanced. If you can homeschool, do it. Even if you have to pay someone else to homeschool your child, do it. I now have a private homeschool business and I “tutor” other homeschool kids all day in my home. I refuse to follow common core and most “learning disabled” really are not. There are a few who are, and that is a genuine dyslexic or genuine digraphic, or something like ASD who has processing. But even then, there is no reason the child can’t learn. They just learn in a different way and public schools are NOT set up for that. The school gets more $$ for any child with an LD and they also get to grade them differently on standardized tests. This is in the best interest of the school. The only reason your child should be considered LD is if they can’t read, they can’t write or they can’t do math. And I mean REAL NORMAL MATH. If the kids can read, even slowish but they like to read, and they understand what they read, and it is close to or right at grade level (ask the librarian or do a google search for what grade level book you need) then tell the school kiss off. I have had kids with 126 IQ who had serious LD in writing and math but they still learned just fine. And I had kids with normal 90 IQ who are “slower” when compared to some of the other kids but they still can read, write, do math and are fine. They were not LD, they were just normal or had a birth date that made them younger than everyone else in the class so their brain was still developing.

I was labeled “learning disabled” back in elementary school, a long time ago. But what I have figured out is I wasn’t learning disabled, I learned differently. The teachers didn’t teach the way I learned so it looked like I was having difficulty. As I got older I learned how I learned best and was able to work it in my favor. I’m an audio visual learner. Meaning I need to see and hear at the same time. Hands on is best for me. Don’t let them pigeon hole your kids. They also tested my IQ and I tested at 141. At the time 118 was average with 180 being genius. So just because a teacher doesn’t know how to teach your kid do, or can’t due to over crowding in the class room. Don’t think it has any baring on your kids intelligence till you find out otherwise.

Found out my grand daughter is having recess and SNACKS taken away for not confirming as a young kindergartner. About to be home schooled. Snacks!!

I believe it could be. My daughter is 7yrs & in the 2nd grade currently. We went to kindergarten screening at the public school & were told that she didn’t have the attention span for school, that she would fail miserably if we sent her & that we should wait one more yr. I just couldn’t understand. She was so bright. We took her to a private school screening that doesn’t use Common Core. They are now having her tested for the accelerated classes. She reads up to a 5th grade level and is thriving.

I myself asked my own thought perhaps on what some of this could be:

Do you think that there might be something even more sinister than just mere labeling to get the school extra money going on? I mean, the Soviets used mental health, etc, to silence their opponents. How do we know they aren’t labeling kids who might be considered a threat in the future as having so issue so that they can silence them later on? Recall how people with certain labels are barred from getting guns. Also, if someone believes that they are disabled and can only do so much as what their label says, they won’t try harder. This labeling could be another way to crush exceptionalism and create a dumbed down population.

I received the following replies:

I agree with your assessment. If you kill a kid’s belief in his ability to excel, you’ve successfully created another government dependent in the near future and a defeatist parent of the next generation.

Group mindset, conform to the group. Be afraid to try. As a parent of a senior in high school, I am seeing kids fail to apply to more selective colleges because they fear they will be rejected. Not even trying anymore to excel. Group think reigns supreme.

Here is a post from a Texas anti-Common Core group:

Speaking to a former teacher today who coordinates the foreign exchange student program in our area. She had retired a couple of years ago and I was informing her how education was reforming to a digital learning platform and that teachers will most likely be replaced with Teach For America facilitators, since the new TEA Commissioner has hired four out of five of his czars from TFA.

She asked me why would they do that when her students who had come from Italy, Germany and Spain loved our education system in America? She said that they felt that there was so much opportunity here, since they had a relationship with their teachers and could choose so many different subjects and electives that were of interest to them. Unlike in their home countries, where the government determined what they would do for an occupation and that would be the course of study that they would have to follow in their educational path.

Sadly, this is the model of education that we are rapidly going toward in America–where there is no choice other than what the government directs based on the global economy. We all have a choice today, however, to say this is not what we want for our children and that we want to keep America strong and free so that our children have the same opportunity that we did.

Make a stand by going to your school board meetings; paying attention to proposed legislation this upcoming session and write your respective House representative. Tune into the SBOE meetings, or better attend in Austin and tell them no. TEA, along with the Senate and House Education Committees are ramrodding Districts of Innovation–which is anything but innovative–with the help of your local school board by promoting flexibility. It’s not flexible and will only usher in Competency-Based Education.

Just say no.

Here is a post from another anti-Common Core group:

This Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire was in my granddaughter’s bookbag. No note, no explanation or communication. The more I look at it the madder I get. I am trying to decide whether I should just ignore it, speak to the principal or fill it out so it portrays her as the perfect psychological specimen ( which no one really is.) Does everyone receive this? Suggestions?

Here is a post from a Utah anti-Common Core group:

I’d like to ask those parents of HS age children, that are in Public School: are your children being preached to about ‘Climate Change’? This has been an all week discussion in their Science class. Video after video. Has this been your experience? Is this new in the CC Curriculum?

And here is a reply:

Utah adopted new science standards recently. they based them off of the national Next Generation Science Standards (originally they copied them, literally, word-for-word).

climate change is part of the standards now. that’s probably why. 😦 although i don’t see why they need an entire week of it & i would bet those videos have an agenda behind them. i’m sorry.

(pg.17-18, Standard 3, Objective #3)
(pg.20 Standard 5, Objective #3)
http://www.schools.utah.gov/CURR/science/Core/Grade912.aspx
(i download these documents to my computer & then i can search for certain words, it helps me find things faster)

And another reply:

It is a big part of the new science standards, but was pervasive before. A few years ago I spent some time going through as many of the books sent to the curriculum review board as I could. The “green” theme was so overwhelming, throughout language arts curriculum and geography etc. too, that just out of curiosity I started to make stacks by themes: man-made catastrophic climate change quickly grew to be one of the largest stacks. I had stacks for things that highlighted racial tension, promoted socialism, demeaned the role of family, and also tried to make a stack of references to true people in history that portrayed them in a positive light or other important, factual and foundational things. Out of a whole room full of books, I ended up with two pamphlet sized booklets for that last category. There was a small book about China for early readers that said socialism is a type of government where everyone makes small sacrifices for the good of everyone else, or something to that effect. It was a wakeup for me and I started asking to read all the textbooks that would be used in my kids’ classrooms. (Not everything that passes the curriculum review board ever makes it into a classroom.) The teachers were great to let me borrow them. I didn’t find much in what my kids were getting that was really objectionable but realized so much of it was pretty uninspiring and utilitarian. The experience helped our family set some better goals about seeking wisdom out of the best books. I made the analogy to my friend who had all the books that I felt there was some “poison” in curriculum but that a lot of it was just void of nutrition. He agreed and called it “educational cheez whiz.”

And another reply:

I am shocked, that here in UT we are just accepting the propaganda. My son was the only one speaking out in class, asking the teacher why she was teaching Climate Change as ‘fact’ – when the debate is still ongoing. I am bothered by the fact that he is the only one speaking out. It is very concerning.

And another reply:

It’s in colleges too. Nearly every class I’ve taken over the last couple of years has managed to find a way to fit at last a chapters worth of climate gobbledygook into the course.

And another reply:

We experienced this last year…it was my daughter’s toughest year. We emailed the teacher….no response, we emailed the district, they said that the movies that she was showing weren’t approved, we asked what they would do about it…..crickets. Had our daughter not missed a class and brought the movie home….. we would have never known.

And another reply:

They started in 3rd grade but I’m at home I taught my kids that is a hoax and I proved that to them, now they are older and they know that school and teachers will try to tell them different. I’m only sad for those parents that are single, widows or both parents have to work. They don’t have enough time and energy to tell their children what is s lie from school. I hope these things change pretty soon.

And another reply:

All of my older, now adult millenial children had this from elementary age on, pre- CC – out of the 3 oldest, 2 are now your typical Socialist leaning climate change millenials despite my husband and I presenting facts about how the pro man made climate change peeps use computer models instead of actual collected data to blame temperature change on man and therefor use the “fake” data to impose taxes for “carbon footprints” etc etc . I brought my two youngest home and have carefully taught them the right questions to ask when confronted by a pro man-caused climate change teacher or fellow student. Our schools have been infusing this garbage into not only Science, but ELA and even math for years. For example, my 6th grader was asked to compute the area for Johnny and Suzies “Conservation garden” not a sandbox or playground – it has been quietly slipped in for years despite the fact that it is NOT settled Science – its one of MANY incorrect theories taught in public school which pretty much makes you question your child’s “education” on a whole, and whether or not their time spent in school is of any real “value” anymore?

Here is another post from the Utah anti-Common Core group:

Just heard that the state board is replacing SAGE with ACT’s Aspire. Out of the frying pan into the next frying pan with more federal involvement and still the inability to test real math…oh and yes, probably social-emotional learning as well. Just because ACT is in charge of it doesn’t mean it’s a ‘nice, objective’ measure. ACT was involved and promoting CC. ACT does tons of data mining (and can get away with it because they are a private organization, but who else do you get to go to to get your kid into college?)

So, just because ACT is in the name doesn’t mean it’s better than SAGE. It’s all the same thing. Most of us will go back to sleep and not opt our kids out because it’s ACT. Just thought everyone should know.

And here is a reply to said post:

This is why states were “collaborating” under AIR’s (SAGE controllers) leadership to move to constant assessing using digital learning/testing platforms. The Obama administration always KNEW we would be moved into the ACT. That’s WHY the two federal testing consortia were created….to move states into this system.

States are being prodded into the ACT because they were grooming (and being groomed) for the next phase of federal reform–Competency-Based Education through digital learning tied to Common Education Data Standards. Please read about the ACT’s “The Ledger” and start educating your family and friends about where global reformers are taking local curriculum. Local curriculum control is being systematically dismantled. You won’t be preparing your children to take the ACT, the ACT and their global partners’ values, will be embedded into the digital learning system from cradle to career. The ACT is not an objective assessment system. Maybe it was at one time, but it is now an ideologue machine to interject progressive values and attitudes into curriculum/assessments.

http://missourieducationwatchdog.com/pour-yourself-a…/

Remember, that the CCSSO (the superintendent’s club that co-created Common Core), the Asia Society, and Bill Gate’s EdSteps define “global competence” as:
“the capacity and disposition to understand and act on issues of global significance.” (so, they are not assessing for academics, but for how a child will advance progressive causes). And, they created an overview of social-emotional competencies that they define—and that are being enforced by the new federal ESSA law.

Also, I have noticed that the Left has been having the transgender nonsense in schools for a while now.  In 2013, a Massachusetts school named a boy its “Prom Queen”:  http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2013/05/mass-high-school-awards-prom-queen-title-to-transgender-student/

A Virginia school is thinking of pulling two classical books over, historically accurate for the time period I might add, racial slurs even though said books are actually ANTI-racism:  http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/national-international/Novels-Pulled-From-Accomack-Schools-Over-Racial-Slurs-404017406.html

Here is another post from an anti-Common Core group:

Need to vent: got kids report cards yesterday my 2nd grader did great my 5th grader not so much but every time I call the school because obviously my daughter needs more help then she’s getting I keep being told she does not qualify her state star test scores were not low enough and they can only give extra help to a cettain number pf kids per classbut she’s failing and barely getting through. I cant pay for a tutor and should not have to the school should be offering extra help!!! Am i the only one who feels this way about the schools not doing enough for our kids. I plan on calling the principle tomorrow to voice my concerns.

And here is a reply to said post:

My daughter had a constant struggle in school and she only went kindergarten and 3 months of 1st grade. She could never properly grasp writing , always starting her letters bottom to top and sometimes backwards. She couldn’t spell for crap and I was told she doesn’t need to know how to spell. She only needs to know how to read her site words for the testing in 3 rd grade. We would go over things at home (after she’s exhausted and tired from 7 hour days) and it wouldn’t be reinforced at school. She hated checking out books from the library and we couldn’t figure out why until we were told she was tested on every book she checked out for points. Kids who didn’t have a lot of points would get made fun of and have to watch the other kids win prizes while they didn’t.

We pulled her in Oct. and started homeschooling. What a difference Away from common core and how it teaches! As an example: the first pic is from her last week in 1st grade. She can even hardly write and can’t even spell “was” (yet could identify it as a site word). The second picture is our homeschooling “back to basics” I made her. Last picture is her writing only 2 months later. I un-did all their BS non-teaching in 5 weeks or so.

Heads up in Arizona.  They are rebranding Common Core.

Here is a post from a Utah anti-Common Core group:

It [SAT] no longer tries to test for intrinsic ability—and indeed, by seeking a false fairness of demographic equity, it scarcely tests for ability at all. By shifting to an achievement model, and basing its content model on the public schools, it has abandoned the fairness of deference to America’s curricular variety. All students have to study the public school curriculum if they wish to do well on the SAT—and because college entrance depends so heavily on the SAT (and the similarly achievement-oriented ACT), this shift effectively smuggles a homogeneous national curriculum into America via the wedge of standardized testing.

https://www.nas.org/articles/reclaiming_intellectual_freedom_with_a_new_alternative_to_the_sat

Found this post in an anti-Common Core group:

One of the ESSA testing “flexibility” rules “is that states have to cap those who can use alternative tests at one percent of students in their state…. ‘States can request a waiver of that cap, but state and local education officials thought language proposed by the Education Department earlier this year would make it really burdensome for states to ask for and receive a waiver.'”

“Yes, please tell me how ESSA returns control back to the states… what a crock.”

http://truthinamericaneducation.com/elementary-and-secondary-education-act/another-example-flexibility-every-student-succeeds-act/

Another post from an anti-Common Core group:

My third-grader’s test. The work is correct for #8, but it was marked wrong because it’s not the number they’re looking for. Whatever happened to solving problems in multiple ways? They’re not looking for rigor, they’re looking for everyone to think the same way! This is very upsetting!

common core math stinks 3.jpg

Milwaukee public schools were thinking of spending 100’s of 1000’s of dollars on Black Lives Matter curriculum:  http://americanintelligencereport.com/milwaukee-public-schools-plan-to-spend-471073-on-black-lives-matter

Heads up in Connecticut!  Look at what they are doing with student data!

 

Here is a post from an anti-Common Core person’s page:

From what I found out from the school, the teacher picks his/her lesson plan… so this is not her tailored page I saw the other day, although this is the only material available
and as you know with anything “common core” you can not detract from it in any way, shape, or form, but you can ADD to it

and I included all grades… but as you can see, it “leans” in favor of one culture (I typed in ‘jew, ‘jewish’, and ‘christian’) and this is what I got
~~~~
This should be one class that you would be “pleased as punch” to have your kids fail

you need to have them spread the truth!!

The Supporters of Big Abortion and How to Beat Them

We’ve all seen the horrors of the Planned Parenthood videos (if we could stomach them without hurling.)

There have been efforts to protest Planned Parenthood.  However, we must reveal their allies, however unpleasant it may be.

I have found the following list of direct  Planned Parenthood supporters

Craig Taylor (shirts), The Gap (apparel/accessories), Whole Foods Market, JPMorgan Chase (including Chase Bank, & Bank One), Bank of America, Lost Arrow (Patagonia), Wells Fargo (including Wachovia), Chevron (including Caltex, Texaco, Xpress Lube), eBay (including PayPal), Kenneth Cole, Nike, Midas (auto care), Marriott (including Courtyard, Fairfield, Renaissance, Ritz-Carlton, etc.), Johnson & Johnson, Staples (office/school supplies), Trader Joe’s (markets/supermarkets), Darden Restaurants (Bahama Breeze, The Capital Grille, LongHorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Season 52), Franchise Services (PIP, Signal Graphics, Sir Speedy), Ignite Restaurants (Brickhouse Tavern+Tap, Joe’s Crab Shack), ING (financial services), Kohl’s (department stores), and Mrs. Fields (cookies).1 UPDATE: Could not validate this anywhere else.

The American Cancer Society, Camp Fire, The Dr. Phil Foundation, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts, Human Rights Watch, Kiwanis Clubs, the March of Dimes, Rotary Clubs, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and the YWCA. Also,  AlphaGraphics (graphics/printing), Arizona Lotus (radio/television broadcasting), Blackjack Pizza (restaurants), BolchalkFReY Marketing (advertising/public relations), Kara-Line (Wild Carrots apparel), Lowe Enterprises (hotels/resorts/financing), Pizza Pizza (restaurants), Scolari’s Food & Drug, and Tiffany & Company2
Also, the following groups have been found to be backing them as well:

Reddit3, NAACP4, Donald Trump(possibly)5 6 7 Jeb Bush9 10, Bruce Rauner11 12, ACLU13, Verizon, Progressive Insurance, Pfizer, Oracle, Macy’s, Liberty Mutual, Intuit, Fannie Mae, Expedia, Energizer, Clorox, Adobe14, AAA, Children’s Aid Society, Lions Club, Ronald McDonald House charities, etc15, Sierra Club, AARP, etc16 HRC17, and NEA and ATF18

And these guys are currently standing up for them asking Congress not to defund them (not sure if all of these guys are directly or indirectly funding them, but asking Congress to continue funding Planned Parenthood is bad enough in my book.)

I am sure the list could go on, but I think you get the idea. So, we know we need to pull out the major boycott and teach some evil companies a lesson and perhaps some of us won’t be eating out or drinking soft drinks for a while. However, one must wonder whom Planned Butcherhood supports20. From the list is appears to be Democrats, Democrats, and more Democrats. No wonder Obama doesn’t want them to get defunded!!! Oh, and did I mention that Planned Parenthood is getting BILLIONS in our tax dollars? Yes, even with a strong enough boycott effort against the sleazy corporations, Planned Murderhood is still in business by our own tax money!!!!

Wonder why Mitch McCommie and John Bonehead aren’t trying to help us defund it? Well, they don’t have balls (perhaps we should inform them that Planned Parenthood is selling body part so they can get some….) and have proven time and time again to be poltroons.

At least some state governments are trying. But wait, Obamalini and the Medicaid department aren’t pleased with that!!! They had some things to say21 22 23! Of course, it’s not that Medicaid is that well spent anyway24!

And, the Evil Empire wasn’t satisfied with that. They also sent the Department of Injustice after the people putting out the Planned Parenthood videos25!!! And let’s not forget how the IRS harassed pro-life groups26.

So, it’s clear that we need to clean out the crap in D.C. But it seems that elections don’t matter anymore as the courts and Obama do what they want and Congress seems to have become eunuchs.

So, what are we to do? Well, I’d suggest having an Article V convention to have the states amend the Constitution to restore the checks and balances system in our federal government. Now, some like our poor misguided friends at Eagle Forum, who cite Warren Burger, the bastard who GAVE us Roe v. Wade, as a reason not to have Article V state conventions, suggest we shouldn’t use it.

But I think some amendments can allow the states to check the federal government. I will mention more in later issues, but will leave you with these links for now for more information.

I will mention now that a proposed amendment idea would be to allow 3/5 of the states or 3/5 of Congress to be able to overturn Supreme Court decisions and to allow between 26 and 30 (not sure of the number, but am thinking 28 to 30) states to be able to limit the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court and other federal courts and even to dissolve lower federal courts (Congress has this power, they just won’t use it. I know because I asked John McCain to limit the power of the Supreme Court on the marriage ruling BEFORE it happened so that they wouldn’t be able to rule on it. But McShame said no.) Also, I’d like to term limit all of the federal courts to 12 years at most.

Anyway, check out the links below.
