SORT BY Relevancy
Even if you're not politically engaged, chances are you've heard about the Common Core State Standards Initiative in education -- and the increasingly vocal efforts of anti-common core activists to stop it. This hot button issue continues to dominate the news while achieving something nearly impossible in contemporary American life: uniting conservatives, liberals, and everyone in-between in solid, steadfast oppostion.
And on Tuesday, February 3 Writestream founder Dariaanne welcomes Resounding Books founder and editor of the company's first release, Common Ground on Common Core: Voices from Across the Political Spectrum Expose the Realities of the Common Core Standards, Kirsten Lombard.
Kirsten will educate us about the dangers of common core and the underlying motivations of its most fervent champions. She'll also discuss how everyday Americans can fight back locally to preserve choice and excellence in education:
When an ideologically diverse array of the nation’s top education activists and experts come together within the pages of a single volume to speak out against the Common Core State Standards and related initiatives in education, the magnitude of the issue couldn’t be more clear.
With a foreword by former U.S. Congressman Ron Paul.

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.
Welcome to a special Friday edition of "The Search For Verity Radio Program"! Tonight we will be talking about education and the ramifications that come along with programs like Common Core. Through programs like this, entangled with other government sanctioned programs like "No Child Left Behind" that have seen an influx of state standardized testing, are our children reaping the rewards of what education has to offer or, are they being stretched beyond the limits of success? Leading up to the recent PARCC State Standardized Testing in Ohio, there has been a large movement of parents that have had their children opted out of the testing. What is the reason for this? Is it a political ideology at play, or do they genuinely see their kids suffering under these guidelines? There has also been a concern of what these tests are doing to teachers because they tend to be assessed by how the children do on just one or two state tests. Is this fair to them?
All of this and much more. Please call in to be a part of the show!
Don’t be fooled by grandiose claims in support of the Common Core State Standards Initiative that incentivizes states to "Race to the Top" by choosing uniform Language Arts and Mathematics standards that students are expected to achieve at the close of each school year (K-12). Research Mom Sharon Hanek raises red flags about this scheme that “facilitates,” rather than “educates.” How so? By delivering highly politicized, strictly utilitarian miss-education that undermines the religious value system your family holds dear—this, by systematically altering how your child thinks. Who’s behind the initiative, what’s in it for them, and at what cost to our children? Tune in for answers!

Hear perspective on what is going on inside the minds of children and families suffering through common core. Isn't it time we got rid of it? Why has it now come to where parents are not welcome to help in schools and books are no longer sent home. What is there to hide? Why is it that the best helper for the child--his/her parents are now being made to feel very inadequate and unable to see their children through school?
The one major component of learning is the actual ability to learn. So what is that common core "thing" that does that?
Its not a method, its not a style nor is it another way of looking at a problem. Lets take a look at what is required to bring excellence back to America!

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.
