If You've Been Told Common Core Is Not Nationalized (Or Should We Say Centralized)--Then Look At Their Central Planning
Most states signed on to these Common Core Standards since Jan 2010 and to date almost all states, except ten, have a movement to repeal them. Why? Because many parents have seen in their own homes that they are poisoning the minds of America's children, besides dumbing them down and at the same time--costing the states money, they do not have. But, there are those making money and guess who they are --the developers and promoters. To top it off, they have the audacity to force taxpayers to pay for the assaults on the children. Can parents afford to play dead or trust their legislators.
It is very rare to find legislators against Common Core and therefore this election will be key to removing the poison from the states.
Here's where you know there are central planners to Common Core. You can just hear it across states.
- Door #1 is the Indiana Example-when they got what they were told as Indiana's own College and Career Ready Standards-see link of result
This is an excerpt of musings on the Indiana Repeal:
Even with this new bill we have to wonder how much Indiana is surrendering control over their standards.
SB 91 originally stated that the new Indiana standards must “comply with federal standards to receive a flexibility waiver under 20 U.S.C. 7861.” Proponents believe that “college and career ready standards” means adopting Common Core or something practically identical to the Common Core State Standards in order to stay within compliance of the state’s conditional waiver.
The bill also says the standards must “Prepare Indiana students for college and career success, including the proper preparation for nationally recognized college entrance examinations such as the ACT and SAT.” While that seems good, ACT and SAT have said their tests will be aligned to the Common Core.
Also they can lead you to Door #2
- Door #2--Choice to opt out and in essence the planners can say you now have local control ('cause you can opt out)--right? Our wish is coming true and guess who is giving it to us--that ought to tell you something!!! This is the Alabama Example which we will post more about next week.
I think many of us are now very tired of the carrot and the stick--this time it will be locally duplicated. Who controls each county really depends on who controls their superintendents. Unfortunately, we would not have this problem if the Superintendents had done their homework. They did not as instead they trusted their top level administrators--State Superintendent etc. not realizing they were lied to (here's one Superintendent's view--he trusted too much--see facts). Now so much $$ has been spent and they don't know what to do. I pray there will be heroes in these superintendents that will speak out due to love of country. As the above picture clearly shows, America's foundation is being destroyed and it is happening in the classroom. The planners of Obamacare now are fully implementing Obamacore. Can we learn and not repeat lessons from Obamacare?
Let the local boards be able to choose to opt out of Common Core--that is what the Central Planners want as in reality they know whose really in charge. Teachers are afraid to speak out locally -so the truth will not be heard and that is the enemy of error.
Let's be strong and ask Sen Beason's original bill be allowed to be voted on instead of being changed to suit those that didn't want it voted on in the first place. Let's stand for what's right for a change and pray hard that these people will be convicted to follow an awesome God and His ways.
I pray they will ask themselves--what would Jesus do? Simple question but yet so full of wisdom. I hope they will do as George Washington and many others like him at the beginning of this nation, when things looked so hopeless and they felt so helpless.
That's when God shines the brightest and I believe God is looking down upon every county Superintendent, every principal, every legislator and Governor..knowing full well their relationship with Him will determine the fate of the children and their very own.
Let's remember our history and these famous words from Ben Franklin:
I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth -- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that "except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall be become a reproach and a bye word down to future age. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.
Listen to David Barton of Wallbuilders and let's find the way back to American Exceptionalism
