    JUST SAY NO TO COMMON CORE WITH GUEST MEG NORRIS

    in Lifestyle

    COMMON CORE IS SWEEPING THE COUNTRY, LARGELY BY EDICT FROM SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS AND THEIR POLITICAL CRONIES.  BUT BLOWBACK IS GAINING STEAM AS MORE AND MORE PARENTS LOOK AT THE PROGRAM AND ITS CURRICULUM AND FIND IT WANTING.  SO WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR KIDS AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO MAKE SURE THEIR BEST INTERESTS ARE WHAT IS DONE?


    WE ARE PLEASED TO HAVE MEG NORRIS OF GEORGIA AS OUR GUEST TONIGHT ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. MEG IS A GEORGIA CERTIFIED TEACHER WHO LEFT HER PROFESSION AFTER WATCHING THE FRUSTRATION OF HER CONFUSED SEVENTH GRADE STUDENTS WITH THE COMMON CORE CURRICULUM.  SHE JUST REALIZED THAT THIS WAS NOT THE ANSWER TO IMPROVING EDUCATION AND HAS SINCE COMMITTED HERSELF TO AN ACTIVIST ROLE IN STOPPING THIS CORPORATE TAKEOVER OF EDUCATION. 


    MEG IS TIRELESS;  FOUNDED SEVERAL FACEBOOK SITES FOR THE CAUSE INCLUDING OPT OUT GEORGIA AND GEORGIANS TO STOP COMMON CORE. SHE IS ALSO A CANDIDATE FOR A DOCTORATE IN EDUCATION AND TRAVELS EXTENSIVELY TO FIGHT THE BATTLE NOT JUST IN GEORGIA BUT AROUND THE NATION.  SHE ALSO IS A FIRM BELIEVER IN CLASSICAL EDUCATION WITH THE NEED FOR A STUDENT TO TAKE NOTES, WRITE IN CURSIVE, AND READ REAL BOOKS (NOT JUST COMPUTER SCREENS), AND USE PAPER, PENCIL AND CRAYONS.  YOUNG BRAINS NEED HANDS ON PRACTICALITY TO LEARN.


    IF YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT COMMON CORE, AND YOU SHOULD, THE DISCUSSION SHOULD BE VALUABLE FOR PARENTS AND TAXPAYERS ALIKE.  IF IT GOES THROUGH AS THE POLITICAL ELITES WOULD LIKE, WE'LL ALL PAY THE PRICE.
