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.
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.

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.
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--

Hear perspectives on what we are seeing today from the Grassroots. Have Americans had enough and why? Is there Hope? Of course, with God all things are possible. Come reason with us on the problems we face and how we can overcome. There are heroes out there willing to fight and lead and many of us need to find them and follow. From Common Core to the Middle East--let's talk about it, reason and fight but most importantly give it to God in prayer--daily. The Founders did and it made all the difference. Let us remember them and follow their examples for such a time as this.
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.
Hear about a parent's experience with Common Core that was not supposed to happen. The book by Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye was banned from Alabama High Schools yet another book by same author of the same mold (written ) is being taught. The Common Core Standards Initiative has been warned by Early Childhood Development Experts and Mental Health Experts as harmful, developmentally inappropriate and by one as "Cognitive Abuse". Alabama has a chance to repeal it.
