Come find out the latest measure on how to ensure teachers teach to the test and that students are learning the Common Core. Why is it that this approach must be done nationwide. Hear what is going on in Missouri that has teachers shocked as most never saw this coming. Will Common Core affect most of the states teachers in the same way?
Hear interview with Dr. Duke Pesta as he opens our eyes to some very important details in this nationalized education system that is being implemented. He is a nationally renowned speaker that can connect the dots for us on how the National Sexuality Education Standards will come in to the schools. We will be speaking with him and other Education Activists such as Alice Linahan of Women on the Wall, Ann Eubank of Stop Common Core Alabama will be dropping in to give more perspectives. One of the topics we will comment is on the latest tentacle of this nationalized system--the Comprehensive Counseling Guidance Proposal which uses the ASCA National Model. According to Linda Murphy, a nationally renowned Educator/Activist, who has studied Dr. Bice's Comprehensive Counseling Guidance -- "This is a dangerous expansion of the authority of public schools into the private lives of students, which has never been allowed in American schools. This plan sets goals for changes in students’ emotions, feelings, attitudes, values and beliefs. The area educators call the "affective domain" (from Blooms Taxonomy)."

Parents need to awaken as according to Mental Health Expert, Joan Landes, this is BIG. Come learn and share the truths so you can Stand in the Gap for precious children NOW!
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.
Charlotte will share truths, and dispel myths about common core. So families can come together in knowledge, action, and voices for education.

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.
