There is a national debate currently underway among k-12 policymakers, leaders, teachers regarding the usefulness of the common core standards initiative. The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort that established a single set of educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English language arts and mathematics that states voluntarily adopt.
On October 16, we have two special guests who will discuss "Common Core" and provide some insight on the challenges and solutions to issues that have come up since states started adopting them. We are pleased to have Mr. Kenneth Matthews, Supervisor of Mathematics for New Haven (CT) Public Schools. In this position, he oversees mathematics curriculum and instruction in 50 schools for 21,000 students. His principle charge is to raise achievement in mathematics, close the achievement gaps among impoverished and minority students, and prepare students for higher education and careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.) He works closely with Math for America and Teach for America. We also have Ms. Sandy Bartle, Senior Academic Officer with Carnegie Learning. Sandy spent 14 years as a high school mathematics teacher, department chair, and coach As Senior Academic Officer, she co-authors curricula and ensures that the best of academic research on teaching and learning theory is directly applied to the needs of teachers.
Join us on October 16 at 2pm EST for an informative discussion!

My guest this week is an active teacher in a New York State school district whom I will call JOHN SMITH. I will not be using his real name as teachers such as my guest, who oppose the institution of the Common Core Curriculum, face pressure from School District Superintendents every day to "go along with the program" for their own good. American children have become "lab rats" for experimentation via a program created by socialists and communists who are out to destroy traditional classical education, critical thinking, and an accurate historical view of our country. My guest will give you first hand knowledge of how the 'Common Core Curriculum' is more about INDOCTRINATING America's children than educating them. The History Books are being re-written to give a negative view of America and its founding documents, including the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution. More time is spent on a favorable review of the United Nations Charter than on the U.S. Constitution. He will give us specific examples of material currently used in our schools to "progressively' INDOCTRINATE our children into accepting socialist views and to rely on communal group-think to identify solutions to problems. He will tell us what the authors of this program really want to do with our children's minds, values, careers and lives? Americans need a strong wake-up call about the 'Common Core Curriculum' and it better happen soon.
People across the country are finding out about Common Core Educational Standards and parents and local school boards are not happy about what they are finding out.

Diane Kepus Weekly Report.....FLORIDIANS AGAINST COMMON CORE EDUCATION F.A.C.C.E. Everything You Need to Know, But........ Your Children's Children WILL live under COMMUNISM
“Your children’s children will live under COMMUNISM. You AMERICANS are so gullible. No you won’t accept COMMUNISM outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of SOCIALISM until you will finally wake up & find that you already have COMMUNISM. We won’t ever have to fight you; we’ll weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” Nikita Khrushchev 1959 “Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.” - Johann Gottlieb Fichte For more information....

This past week New York State Education Commissioner John King canceled the remaining four PTA forums on Common Core standards in New York schools because he said “"co-opted by special interests." The special interests he speaks of are not the mean old republicans, not those tea party radicals or any of those other left wing anarchists, no this time the special interest groups are parents! What a novel idea parents who take a special interest in their children’s education, now that is radical behavior. Those parents came to discuss with him the education of their children and were not the low information voters he may be expected. They had the nerve to ask him “if Common Core is so good why do you send your kids to private schools? Why is it that educating our children has become a matter of the federal government dictating to the states then the states dictating to local school boards? Is common core education in the hands of the local school board parents and teachers or is it a clever new way of indoctrinating our children to support in the current socialist political climate? Obviously those special interest groups Commissioner King is hiding from want answers! What do you think?
