COMMON CORE IS SWEEPING THE COUNTRY, LARGELY BY EDICT FROM SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS AND THEIR POLITICAL CRONIES. BUT BLOWBACK IS GAINING STEAM AS MORE AND MORE PARENTS LOOK AT THE PROGRAM AND ITS CURRICULUM AND FIND IT WANTING. SO WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR KIDS AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO MAKE SURE THEIR BEST INTERESTS ARE WHAT IS DONE?
WE ARE PLEASED TO HAVE MEG NORRIS OF GEORGIA AS OUR GUEST TONIGHT ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. MEG IS A GEORGIA CERTIFIED TEACHER WHO LEFT HER PROFESSION AFTER WATCHING THE FRUSTRATION OF HER CONFUSED SEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS WITH THE COMMON CORE CURRICULUM. SHE JUST REALIZED THAT THIS WAS NOT THE ANSWER TO IMPROVING EDUCATION AND HAS SINCE COMMITTED HERSELF TO AN ACTIVIST ROLE IN STOPPING THIS CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF EDUCATION.
MEG IS TIRELESS; FOUNDED SEVERAL FACEBOOK SITES FOR THE CAUSE INCLUDING OPT OUT GEORGIA AND GEORGIANS TO STOP COMMON CORE. SHE IS ALSO A CANDIDATE FOR A DOCTORATE IN EDUCATION AND TRAVELS EXTENSIVELY TO FIGHT THE BATTLE NOT JUST IN GEORGIA BUT AROUND THE NATION. SHE ALSO IS A FIRM BELIEVER IN CLASSICAL EDUCATION WITH THE NEED FOR A STUDENT TO TAKE NOTES, WRITE IN CURSIVE, AND READ REAL BOOKS (NOT JUST COMPUTER SCREENS), AND USE PAPER, PENCIL AND CRAYONS. YOUNG BRAINS NEED HANDS ON PRACTICALITY TO LEARN.
IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT COMMON CORE, AND YOU SHOULD, THE DISCUSSION SHOULD BE VALUABLE FOR PARENTS AND TAXPAYERS ALIKE. IF IT GOES THROUGH AS THE POLITICAL ELITES WOULD LIKE, WE'LL ALL PAY THE PRICE.

Hear Joan Landes, mental health therapist, share her perspective on the Common Core. It is an eye-awakening and maddening experience to hear that we are not using the correct tools to help children in our Education System. How sad that they who tell children to do their homework are not doing the same on Common Core and therefore is causing tremendous damage to tender children. After 4 years of Common Core Math, Prof Jim Milgram says the damage to children is irretrievable so with that in mind--this is Emergency Time for ALL. The mind of a child is precious in God's eyes. He tells us to think aupon things that are holy, good and pure. The only thing pure about Common core is sadly that it is hogwash. Let's get armed with the truth and throw that stone to our elected officials and tell them to remember His Word to do no harm to His precious children.

Hear about a parent's experience with Common Core that was not supposed to happen. The book by Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye was banned from Alabama High Schools yet another book by same author of the same mold (written ) is being taught. The Common Core Standards Initiative has been warned by Early Childhood Development Experts and Mental Health Experts as harmful, developmentally inappropriate and by one as "Cognitive Abuse". Alabama has a chance to repeal it.
Supreme Sense with 1SupremeGoddess = Common Ground on Common Core with Kirsten Lombard on Monday, 3/30/2015 at 7:30pm Eastern ....
Tonight's guest is Kirsten Lombard of @ResoundingBks who will be discussing "Common Ground on Common Core", which is a compliation of essays from an ideologically diverse array of top education activists & experts speaking out against the Common Core State Standards & related initiatives in education,
The "education" of our children seems to have defaulted to more of an INDOCTRINATION of our children & the harvesting of our children's information for future use against them & US We've ALLOWED a political agenda to hijack & bastardize what is meant to create intelligent, critically thinking citizens, into zombie-like non-thinkers that blindly accept whatever the government choses to tell them out of fear & doubt.
This impacts ALL of us, NOT just those that have children in school! So join me, my guest & my co-hosts @1Anobody & @NukNeutron tonight & join the discussion! CALL into 914-338-1458, or join the chat room.
We WILL get through these stormy seas TOGETHER!
Even if you're not politically engaged, chances are you've heard about the Common Core State Standards Initiative in education -- and the increasingly vocal efforts of anti-common core activists to stop it. This hot button issue continues to dominate the news while achieving something nearly impossible in contemporary American life: uniting conservatives, liberals, and everyone in-between in solid, steadfast oppostion.
And on Tuesday, February 3 Writestream founder Dariaanne welcomes Resounding Books founder and editor of the company's first release, Common Ground on Common Core: Voices from Across the Political Spectrum Expose the Realities of the Common Core Standards, Kirsten Lombard.
Kirsten will educate us about the dangers of common core and the underlying motivations of its most fervent champions. She'll also discuss how everyday Americans can fight back locally to preserve choice and excellence in education:
When an ideologically diverse array of the nation’s top education activists and experts come together within the pages of a single volume to speak out against the Common Core State Standards and related initiatives in education, the magnitude of the issue couldn’t be more clear.
With a foreword by former U.S. Congressman Ron Paul.
