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.
People across the country are finding out about Common Core Educational Standards and parents and local school boards are not happy about what they are finding out.
Join for a dicussion on Common Core Educational Sub-Standards with Carolee Adams, NJ President of the Eagle Forum and Shelly Kennedy Founder of CURE-NJ, Citizens United for Responsible Education, as we discuss Common Core's history, separate myth from fact and learn how it made its way into our educational system.

Listen to teachers explain the problems they see with Common Core along with parents upset about the effects on their children. Hear why Common Core is turning education upside down. Let's face the facts that this is a federal intrusion and when parents and teachers can no longer help a child then it is time to stop calling it education as it will lead to indoctrination among other things. Hear parents and teachers fighting for America's future and the future of those they hold dearest in their own homes. There are lessons to be learned from the past and the present. No one that loves children can sit on the sidelines and allow a system to beat up a child inside the mind and Common Core does exactly that to the point that one child psychiatrist calls it "cognitive abuse" and there is even now a mental health problem known as the "common core syndrome". The Obama administration is proving to be dangerous for this country as we have seen by the wrong actions with Benghazi-gate, Bergdahl-gate, Obamacare and now ObamaCore or Common Core (that David Axelrod proudly calls an Obama Initiative) . Time to put a halt to it and it starts with understanding--hear from those affected.
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* The Chicago teachers’ union opposes Common Core education standards.
* Colorado police are stealing guns from law-abiding citizens.
* Federal government is prosecuting marijuana users in Washington state.
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.

Hear perspective on Common Core Math with Professor Jim Milgram. He along with Professor Sandra Stotsky were invited to be on the National Validation Committee for Common Core but would not approve it. Hear about the gains he was seeing with minority students before the Common Core and the dangers to American businesses. He has blunt in past interviews and had even recommended that parents if they can--homeschool their children. Why? Listen and learn about the new education system that unfortunately is leading to a the dumbing down. It is so bad that after three years of the Common Core Math--the damage may not be undone...
Hear interview with Professor Sandra Stotsky who along with Professor Jim Milgram were part of the National Validation Committee for Common Core. Fortunately, these two professors were true to their tasks and saw problems with the Standards and refused to validate them. Professor Sandra Stostky (helped developed the best ELA standards--Massachusetts) is warning the nation of the problems with the Common Core. Listen and learn why all America needs to be very concerned. For too long, most of us have trusted the Education System because of the many wonderful, hard-working teachers we have. We forgot that leadership matters. Now, we clearly see the mindset of one of Common Core's authors, David Coleman, who has also set to re-writing history in the minds of students with the new AP US History framework. In the new APUSH, the Founding Fathers are left out, WWII military heroes are left out, along with Martin Luther King Jr. etc. Can we afford to ignore the obvious? Common Core is rotten because of people that formed it at it's core. Hear wisdom from one of America's leading voices sounding the alarm, Professor Sandra Stotsky, and make a difference to end the nightmare that's just begun for many children (attested by over 500 early childhood and mental health experts who signed a statement to warn of its harm). America is the land of the free only when children are raised to think independently, instead of widgets through the Common Core assembly line. Be sure to join us on twitter and pass out Professor Stotsky's wise words!
"The highly acclaimed school standards called Common Core are becoming so unpopular that they may soon be politically untouchable." So writes Phyllis Schlafly, founder of the Eagle Forum.
"The critics are piling on, from Glenn Beck to the Wall Street Journal, with senior academics and activist parents in between. The latest is a detailed criticism of the mathematics standards by a prize-winning math professor at the University of California at Berkeley, Marina Ratner at the Eagle Forum."
Tonight Phyllis Schlafly joins us with more on Common Core and why it is so detrimental to our children, and our nation's future.
