Nearly a year before students around the nation submit to the new Common Core standardized tests, the federally-backed program is already causing chaos and confusion at local school board meetings, in the classroom and at the dinner table. We are discussing our opinions on the Common Core Standards and the research we have found to better educate us all on what this means for our children. We will be interviewing a local Teacher for her perspective on the Common Core Standards.
In the News, we are discussing a message that has many outraged saying that the teacher needs to exercise more compassion. The message which was a note sent out to pre k students stating that the children have "unpleasant smells" and "dirty clothes". Tune in to find out more.
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.

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)."

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.

Listen to teachers explain the problems they see with Common Core along with parents upset about the effects on their children. Hear why Common Core is turning education upside down. Let's face the facts that this is a federal intrusion and when parents and teachers can no longer help a child then it is time to stop calling it education as it will lead to indoctrination among other things. Hear parents and teachers fighting for America's future and the future of those they hold dearest in their own homes. There are lessons to be learned from the past and the present. No one that loves children can sit on the sidelines and allow a system to beat up a child inside the mind and Common Core does exactly that to the point that one child psychiatrist calls it "cognitive abuse" and there is even now a mental health problem known as the "common core syndrome". The Obama administration is proving to be dangerous for this country as we have seen by the wrong actions with Benghazi-gate, Bergdahl-gate, Obamacare and now ObamaCore or Common Core (that David Axelrod proudly calls an Obama Initiative) . Time to put a halt to it and it starts with understanding--hear from those affected.
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* The Chicago teachers’ union opposes Common Core education standards.
* Colorado police are stealing guns from law-abiding citizens.
* Federal government is prosecuting marijuana users in Washington state.
Last week our guest, Kriss Wolf did open a can of worms. The controversial Common Core State Standards. Kriss generated a lot of interest and requests for more information, especially its status here in Montana. One such contact was from Tim Ravndal an activist from Townsend MT. Tim agreed to be our guest this Thursday nite. Tim has been involved extensively with the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) both at the legislative and local levels. It's mind boggling to hear that only 1 in 10 people in MT have even heard of Common Core. The fact that the MT legislature agreed to fund it, indicates that the 1 in 10 stats apparently also applied to the legislators.
Tim has followed the money on this to special interest groups that lead to George Soros and Bill Gates. The ties to Agenda 21 are also very clear. Tim will sort it all out for us and answer your questions and comments. By the way, here's just a few of the many excellent links for further Common Core references.

Welcome to a special Friday edition of "The Search For Verity Radio Program"! Tonight we will be talking about education and the ramifications that come along with programs like Common Core. Through programs like this, entangled with other government sanctioned programs like "No Child Left Behind" that have seen an influx of state standardized testing, are our children reaping the rewards of what education has to offer or, are they being stretched beyond the limits of success? Leading up to the recent PARCC State Standardized Testing in Ohio, there has been a large movement of parents that have had their children opted out of the testing. What is the reason for this? Is it a political ideology at play, or do they genuinely see their kids suffering under these guidelines? There has also been a concern of what these tests are doing to teachers because they tend to be assessed by how the children do on just one or two state tests. Is this fair to them?
All of this and much more. Please call in to be a part of the show!
