    Joan Landes On The Mental Health Aspect of Common Core

    in News

    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.

    Writestream Tuesday: Common Ground on Common Core

    in Writing

    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--Untested Standards Causing Harm To Many Children

    in News

    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.

    in Politics Conservative

    Supreme Sense with 1SupremeGoddess = Common Ground on Common Core with Kirsten Lombard on Monday, 3/30/2015 at 7:30pm Eastern ....


    Tonight's guest is Kirsten Lombard of @ResoundingBks who will be discussing "Common Ground on Common Core", which is a compliation of essays from an ideologically diverse array of top education activists & experts speaking out against the Common Core State Standards & related initiatives in education,


    http://www.resoundingbooks.org/books/commonground/ 


    The "education" of our children seems to have defaulted to more of an INDOCTRINATION of our children & the harvesting of our children's information for future use against them & US We've ALLOWED a political agenda to hijack & bastardize what is meant to create intelligent, critically thinking citizens, into zombie-like non-thinkers that blindly accept whatever the government choses to tell them out of fear & doubt.


    This impacts ALL of us, NOT just those that have children in school! So join me, my guest & my co-hosts @1Anobody & @NukNeutron tonight & join the discussion! CALL into  914-338-1458, or join the chat room.


    We WILL get through these stormy seas TOGETHER!

    Perspectives On The Mental Health Effects Being Seen With The Common Core

    in News

    Hear Joan Landes give us an insight from the mental health perspective of why Common Core must go.  The promises of making children College and Career Ready comes with a price to children and families as after all it is an experiment.  We now know that states were coerced into signing on to the standards before they were even written... now the results.  Lots of prayers needed and legislators better get on board to get rid of this plague as parents and most Presidential Candidates are telling you--Common Core must be repealed!

    The Corruption of education through “common core”

    in Politics Conservative

    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.


    Truth:


     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.
