Common Core

If you don't know about Common Core, you need to read up on these standards. Look at who is funding them, where they come from, and all the information you can get. Monday at Chuckey-Doak High School, Dr. Kirk is bringing in people to talk about how good Common Core is. We need to have people there expressing the dangers of Common Core. Please people, be informed and take action.

Parents they didn't give us much notice about this meeting and the time of day is awful for most working people. Now I wonder why they did that????? We know, so most of us wouldn't find out in time to go and that people wouldn't be able to attend because of the inconvenient time. Seems they got the horse before the cart, we should have had these meetings Before we put common core in place. The common core crowd must be worried because the public is standing up to having this progressive agenda shoved down our throats. They keep telling us that our kids are going to learn more, and yet in the same breath they don't want the first few years of test scores to count because they really don't know that this path is better. Stop using our kids as guinea pigs!!!!! Teachers are starting to speak up bless yet heir hearts. Please go to this meeting. The director and board should have to answer our questions not some common core public relations person. Our local people went along with putting the CC standards into place. They should defend it.

I am 100% against Common Core. Dr. Kirk is 100% for Common Core. Most teachers are against Common Core. Many teachers are for Dr. Kirk. It makes absolutely no sense. I can't go and speak up. I would lose my job. I urge someone to get on Facebook and start a group to get people to go against Common Core.

Just saw a teacher from Missouri testifying against common core in their house hearings. She said she had been bullied and intimidated against speaking out against the standards by administration, but she had to, because she had to do it for the children who couldn't speak for themselves, she teaches k5's in a public school there. She sounded scared and had tears in her eyes. I was SO proud of her! That's a teacher fighting for the children. The house Speaker told her if anyone in her school system tried to give her a hard time when she got back to her system to let the representatives know and they would step in. There are other teachers in other places doing this too. God bless them- AND He will!
Teachers only you really know what the tests look like, you know if the material is appropriate, the survey questions inappropriate etc. you are standing on the front lines. Parents and your community trust you to watch out for our children in these perilous times of change. Don't be brainwashed or intimidated. Make sure that parents get those notices of testing and surveys in plenty of time to ask questions and opt out if they want to. Call your state senators and house representatives. Call the education members on the state committees, call your local board members without telling them who you are. Remember people they hire and fire the superintendent.

We should all be watchful of the recommended reading for our students.

I will be totally honest. You want to help the kids? Make Kathy Austin and Deborah Johnson are reelected. Don’t reelect any of the others. Make sure Clark Justis is not put on the school board.

My friends I have viewed many videos and read many articles on this Common Core.

Satanic Core is more like it!

This is just one more small piece of the coming One World Government, being ushered in to give Antichrist his kingdom.

Your children will not be taught what we were. They will be taught to be good little drones serving their Master (the Government). One Nation, Under Satan, Perversion and Blasphemy for All!

You were warned!

Common core is terrible. The kids will not learn anything. I can't see why we don't go back to common sense learning. The kids are coming out of school without basic skills they need in the real world. Do people not realize that not every child is going to college? They are going out and doing everyday jobs that we need. The schools need to get back to basics.. learn simple math without a calculator.. Learn to read and write.. In cursive to. Kids can't do simple tasks how do you expect them to do stuff that the adults can't even do?
Once again we need to stand up for what is best for our children. If the teachers can't stand up for fear of losing their jobs then the public and parents need to.

Even if you are home schooled you have to go take the same tests. They won't give you diploma if you don't do the same state test.

Who cares about passing a test! In real life, you don't take tests. Because life isn't about passing a test.

Homeschool your children out of the Bible, that is the only way your kids will know about the world and be prepared for what they face in their life. Bible.

Public schools today are all about politics and homosexuality and liberalism.

HOMESCHOOL and you can't go wrong. I don't neet govermnet's permission on what to teach my kids and neither do you.
