Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

Plan of Action To Get Rid of Common Core

Here are some suggestions given by a few great counselors and with God's help--miracles happen.

Get to know the basic truths about Common Core and share it--but first listen to this as it's foundational and also find out when tests are being given for your child and find the opt out form to turn in--

I.  Study

    1.  Race to the Top Application--Yes your state applied for it (most states did and even the ones who didn't are finding textbooks being used in their states aligned to Common Core--this is Al example).

    2.  ESEA Flexibility Application--Most states applied for it and it very clearly shows your under Common Core:

on page 22 (or page 28 of pdf counter) of Alabama's for example


On November 18, 2010, Alabama joined 40 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands in adopting the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA). The adoption by the Alabama State Board of Education (SBOE) incorporated selected Alabama standards with those in the Common Core to create a set of internationally benchmarked college-and career-readiness standards that will prepare students for a future in the ever-expanding global environment. These standards are known as the Alabama College-and Career-Ready Standards (CCRS).

 

Now that you can debunk the claim by our State Superintendent that these are "our" Alabama College and Career Standards and not the Common Core (plus you know that even though we are not a Race to the Top state as he proudly proclaims--it was not because we did not try!)--then it is time to move on.

Listen to this Common Core Collage of interviews from expert and become an expert yourself.

Read this letter from Clinical Social Worker about the dangerous results.  Here's an excerpt:

 

Statement for New York State Assembly Education Forum

Brentwood, New York

October 10, 2013

I am a licensed clinical social worker in New York State and have been providing psychotherapy services since 1995. I work with parents, teachers, and students from all socioeconomic backgrounds representing more than 20 different school districts in Suffolk County. Almost half of my caseload consists of teachers.

In the fall of 2012, I started to receive an inordinate number of student referrals from several different school districts. A large number of honors students—mostly 8th graders—was streaming into my practice.The kids were self-mutilating—cutting themselves with sharp objects and burning themselves with cigarettes. My phone never stopped ringing.

What was prompting this increase in self-mutilating behavior? Why now?

The answer I received from every single teenager was the same. “I can’t handle the pressure. It’s too much work.”

I also started to receive more calls referring elementary school students who were refusing to go to school. They said they felt “stupid” and school was “too hard.” They were throwing tantrums, begging to stay home, and upset even to the point of vomiting.

 --------------------------------

Watch the video from the child pscyhologist that verifies they did not have the well-being of the children in mind when they developed this.

The Facts from the mouth of the Math standards developer debunks the "higher Math standards claim".

The interview from best ELA expert debunks the Common Core ELA being better.

If that's enough and you're already convinced Common Core is bad--

   1.   Ask to visit your legislators in your district.  Request an appointment and bring some of your anti-Common Core friends with you.  Know your facts and present to him the truth as he/she may not know and find out where they stand...so that you will know whether to support that person or get rid of him/her.  WE the People cannot afford lukewarm legislators on this issue.  Their time to take a stand is now.  Find out and make sure to support your Stop Common Core groups in your state.  Look up Stop Common Core on fb for your state and get plugged in on what to do next.  Please share this link with teachers and this one with your church friends and pastor.

By the way--here's some pictures of some of the books being considered for adoption in Alabama--is it in your state?

If you had to choose one of your rights in the First Amendment which one would you give up and why?
