SORT BY Relevancy
SEVERAL WEEKS AGO WE HAD MEG NORRIS, A GEORGIA OPT-OUT OF COMMON CORE LEADER AS OUR GUEST TO DISCUSS THE PITFALLS OF COMMON CORE AND THE NEGATIVE IMPACT IT WOULD HAVE ON THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN, MOST PARTICULARLY THE YOUNGSTERS IN GRADES K-3. TONIGHT (THURSDAY, JUNE 11) NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WELCOMES CINDY HAMILTON, A LEADER IN THE ORLANDO OPT-OUT ORGANIZATION TO PRESENT THE FLORIDA PERSPECTIVE ON THIS PROGRAM.
CINDY WILL FILL US IN ON WHAT IS HAPPENING PRESENTLY AND PLANNED IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO KEEP EDUCATING FLORIDIANS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE ON WHY THIS PROGRAM MUST BE STOPPED. SHE HAS DEDICATED HERSELF TO THE CAUSE OF FURTHERING AN EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR OUR CHILDREN WHICH WILL PREPARE THEM TO BE ALL THEY CAN BE, NOT TO BE PIGEON-HOLED BY A CRONY-CAPITALIST AND GOVERNMENT LINKED POWERHOUSE WHICH THINKS IT KNOWS BETTER THAN PARENTS AND TEACHERS WHAT OUR CHILDREN NEED.
I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US THURSDAY NIGHT TO SEE WHAT IS AT STAKE. THE SHOW WILL START PROMPTLY AT 9:02 PM BUT WILL AS ALWAYS REMAIN AVAILABLE ON DEMAND.
TEACHING AND LEADING IN THE COMMON CORE ERA
SMARTBRIEF AND SMARTBLOGS presents NYC Educator and author Ariel Sacks , their Editor's Choice Content Award winner
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.
Please tune in to tonights' edition of the Andre Controversa Show at
Our guest tonight at 10-00 Est is Neil McCluskey, director of the Center
for Educational Freedom at the Cato Institute.
Our topic will be Common Core, and why libertarians and others should
oppose this indirect federal takeover of public education.
Neil is only available for 30 minutes, but I will try and get some Common
Core activists to call in and add to the conversation.
Again, I was notable to get any opponents to agree to a debate.
Please tune in at 9-00 p.m. Est, and feel free to call in at
See you then.

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.
THURSDAY NIGHT'S NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE PROGRAM WILL BE A REVISIT WITH OPT-OUT GEORGIA COMMON CORE LEADER MEG NORRIS. WE'LL LOOK AT WHERE THINGS STAND AS WE PREPARE TO START A NEW SCHOOL YEAR NATIONWIDE. WE'LL REVIEW THE MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH THE COMMON CORE ISSUE, ADDRESS WHAT SHOULD BE DONE AND HOW TO GO ABOUT GETTING THERE. WE'LL ALSO LOOK AT THE ONGOING ACTIVITIES OF THE BURGEONING OPT-OUT PROGRAM BOTH IN GEORGIA AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY. ALL AMERICANS NEED TO PAY ATTENTION WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN SINCE THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY DEPENDS ON THE QUALITY OF PREPARATION OUR YOUNG PEOPLE RECEIVE AS THEY PREPARE FOR ADULTHOOD.
THE SHOW WILL START AT 9PM AND WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND UPON COMPLETION. STAY INFORMED; THE SUBJECT PROMISES TO BE A MAJOR ISSUE IN THE 2016 ELECTION CYCLE. HOPE YOU'LL TUNE AND LEARN WHAT IS BEING DONE WITH SOME OF YOUR TAX MONEY.
The Common Core State Standards Initiative is currently being implemented in United States school systems for K-12 students. These standards mainly affect English and mathematics standards, but will greatly influence how children are able to think about the world. The initiative is largely funded by the Bill Gates Foundation and sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers.

Hear updates on the new battle lines in the fight for our schools, teachers and children under Common Core. See what ideas are being formulated on both sides. Also hear about upcoming conferences and be encouraged as God is on our side. Hear from the latest on ESEA re-authorization and what states are trying to do to push and combat for the control of America's future. Time to get more informed.
Common Core should be renamed the “Lowest Common Denominator.” He suggests that American schools have been scientifically designed to prevent over-education, thus “ensuring workers who will never be tempted to better their stations in life.”
Common Core was not developed by the states but rather by the "COMMON CORE REGIME" along with Obama's stimulus $$ and pushed by the duped Republican governors and business groups.
The push by a DC-based nonprofit called Achieve, Inc., which is the Education division of Rupert Murdoch‘s News Corp., under the auspices of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) in 2007. Neither NGA nor CCSSO (which are merely trade associations with private membership lists) had a grant of legislative authority from the states to develop national standards. In fact, Common Core was written by the same progressive education reformers who have been trying to impose a national curriculum for decades. This time, they were savvy enough to invoke the “cover”of NGA so they could paint Common Core as a “state-led” effort. To the extent states had any input, it was limited to offering suggestions that may or may not have been accepted by the people in control.
GATES FOUNDATION underwrote( paid for) & promoted the COMMON CORE curriculum scheme along with Jeb Bush's 2 foundations.
RUPERT MURDOCH's News Corp built the database infrastructure In BLOOM evolving out of the above partnership this was created to operate the database.
The U.S. Department of Education (USED) did not create the Standards, but it was deeply involved in the effort to gather together the various trade associations and private foundations to do the work that USED wanted done.
