Last week we spoke about focus and how to develop that. This focus provides a foundation for going deeper, into the core. What is the core? How can we make sure to allow our work on the mat actually meet and develop our core? The core of who we are can refer to the body and to the rest of our lives. Let's look at the core together. We'll share some of the core concepts offered by Sadie Nardini about the deep inner core. We'll continue to build our dancer pose (Natarajasana), and have a little relaxation at the end.
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!
Education in the United States has been on the decline for decades, it would seem that those in charge of our schools would rather push liberal agendas than teach the skills needed to ensure a bright and prosperous future.
Now comes Common Core, a set of standards that clearly has ties to Agenda 21 and it will further destroy the ability of the individual to think critically ,and thus those who hold power will find it easier to do so ,as time goes by.
If we are to save , and nurture, our republic we must have an educated populace, it is time to get busy and begin the process of releasing our schools from the iron grip of the federal government and the hacks at the Untied Nations.
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.
