Common Core Dangers

By Carol Frazier - Politics sure does make strange bedfellows. I believe any policy that is opposed by both the New York State Teachers Union and the TEA Party (not necessarily for the same reasons) needs to be looked at very carefully. Of course, I am referring to the Common Core State Standards. And, of course education is not supposed to be political. (Ahem.) Just about everything you have been told about Common Core by the federal, state and local education establishment is, at best, incorrect, and, at worst, downright false. Starting with the way the standards were developed (and … [Read more...]

Last week, the National Education Association newsletter instructed its members to put the full court press on Congress to approve the current “immigration” bill - how much could that cost? Evidently, money is no object, especially when it is someone … [Read more...]

Common Core is deadly. Thank God for people like Mark Levin and Landmark Legal Foundation who fight the National Education Association (NEA).

Common Core is a nationwide initiative designed to herd states into national K-12 standards and national tests, which ultimately will lead to a national curriculum and silence curriculum input from local parents, taxpayers and educators. Do we want to do this on top of handing over control of our real estate, as proposed in "Plan Maryland", to Annapolis and the federal government? It will all end when we all have no control of the activities that we have always controlled through the ballot box. Please understand and see these mandates for what they are. They are attacks on our … [Read more...]
