    Common Core State Standards

    in Moms and Family

         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.

    JUST SAY NO TO COMMON CORE WITH GUEST MEG NORRIS

    in Lifestyle

    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.

    Common Core/State Standardized Tests And Your Children

    in Politics

    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!

    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.
