Betty Peters (5 min video)
Part II of CCSI (60 min audio)
Hear the true story on the CCSI or Common Core Standards Initiative from the people involved with the process like Professor Jim Milgram, Professor Sandra Stotsky, Betty Peters, Penny Wolcott, Donna Garner among others. Be shocked and act on the information that shows this so called goal to make our kids college and career ready is in need of debate and input from parents and local and state boards. One example is the math standards sets children up for what mathematicians know as "shopping cart math" which sets us behind instead of a leader in the world of math. English standards makes room for an agenda which has been looking for such a vehicle to change America's thinking by molding its young. Please listen and get informed and follow some of the advice of the speakers to make a difference as the parents and local school boards control are fast being set up to be ineffective when the CCSI gets through the whole country. Constitutional rights are at stake in this Pandora's box known as CCSI.
