Common Core is another government sponsored tool aimed at indoctrinating your children into the New World Order and thereby poisoning their innocent minds.

If you love your children you will provide the best education possible for them. That is not the Union Public Schools that want to indoctrinate your children the way Hitler did in the 1930s, and 40s. They are even telling you what they should eat. Protect your children from the government the way you protect them from rapists, and child abusers.

I got a world class education in the public schools in the 50's. What happened to our schools?

There were no Union Schools in the fifties. There were dedicated teachers, and the government stayed out of the educational system. Parents took am active part in your education at that time. Today the last thing our teachers want is a parent interested enough to go to school to discuss their children's studies

yep, those pony tailed hippies in the 60's failed to change the world, with their draft card burning and protest song singing, so they finished school, became teachers, and are now currently in the process of winning from the inside, indoctrinating the children. If you have children in school, expect them to become fine communists and Marxists, and to bring home their gay lover or opposite race lover. All you can do is change your will, other than that, its a lost cause.

That isn't quite true. You can sit your children down, explain what the Union teacher is doing, tell them the truth about their country, and say, "This is what you have to tell teacher to graduate. But this is the real truth about this country, and explain everything in a Conservative way.

One thing to keep in mind with COMMON Core is privacy or lack there of.

Common is the key word. But who's standards and ideals will the COMMON ones. Which philosophies and politics will be part of the CORE curriculum.

Also if you see organizations like Data Quality Campaign in business with your school system or Common Core be afraid.

Or the Gates Foundation.

Always follow the money even in the education business.

It not just about the students. These same organizations collect information on you.

'Common' can mean a standard or 'common' can mean everyone must think and act alike. How do they get everyone to act and think alike-find out what they are currently doing so "changes" can be made.

Common Core assessments are based on a Common Core curriculum which our current high school students have not experienced.
