SORT BY Relevancy
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.
Postponed! Watch for rescheduled time/date!
45 states have adopted the Common Core State Standards, and many writing project sites are seeing new opportunities for productive work in the intersections of the Common Core State Standards, states’ goals and schools’ and districts’ needs. Tune in to this episode of NWP Radio to hear how sites leaders are learning together about the Common Core standards and preparing to meet their local states’, districts’, and schools’ needs for professional development.
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.

Today we will be looking up some of the information being blasted on twitter and fb on Common Core Standards. Parents are waking up--please call in and share what you posted!!--Love this--

There seems to be a disconnect in the schools of today as to what is going in education vs what is good for the mind of the child. Hear a mental health expert, Joan Landes, give us a perspective. Parents must be informed so they can defend the child and hopefully prevent irreversible harm. Facts are out --parental rights are being taken away and Common Core State Standards Initiative is a huge problem.
What are the consequences when public servants, employed by the taxpayers, violate the public's trust? The city of Chicago erupted in protest over the Thanksgiving weekend after the release of the dashcam video graphically showing the killing of 17 year old Laquan McDonald by police officer Jason Van Dyke in 2014. For an entire year, this video has been withheld, and with its court ordered release came a series of questions as to who was involved in the coverup. Young Laquan, a ward of the State, should have received more care, support, and intervention, it seems, rather than to be shot to death for carrying a knife with which he allegedly was puncturing car tires. Illinois State Representative Mary Flowers joins us today to discuss the many levels of official misconduct that need to be addressed by elected officials as well as the voting public, in holding those accountable who violate the public trust. Can new laws and new regulations protect citizens from police abuse? Should the entire police force be scrapped and all forced to re-apply? Should mandatory psychological exams be instituted before an officer is hired? How do we weed out those who have already racked up complaints for excessive force, before they kill someone else
