Why Are Heroes Needed to Save Children from Common Core State Standards?
America is called the "Land of the Free and Home of the Brave". Why is that? Could it be because in its very beginning those who came upon its shores were indeed very brave and they were seeking to live in the land that was free. In William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation-their children was one of the main reasons many came to America.
Chapter IV of Of Plymouth Plantation (reading this excerpt will make you want to read more of what they were dealing with--for such a time as this...)--"But that which was more lamentable, and of all sorrows most heavy to be borne, was that many of their children, by these occasions and the great licentiousness of youth in that country,5 and the manifold temptations of the place, were drawn away by evil examples into extravagant and dangerous courses, getting the reins off their necks and departing from their parents. Some became soldiers, others took upon them far voyages by sea, and others some worse courses tending to dissoluteness and the danger of their souls, to the great grief of their parents and dishonour of God. So that they saw their posterity would be in danger to degenerate and be corrupted."
They braved the unknown and sacrificed much for the love of their children. Hundreds of years later we have benefitted greatly. But alas today, most of America's parents are asleep to the dangers their children are facing. But awaken they must so they can be the heroes so necessary for their very own precious children. Professor Sandra Stotsky who was on the National Validation Committe of Common Core said it well--you don't keep giving poison to children no matter how much you've invested in buying the poison--that is her warning to Superintendents who use the excuse of how much money they have already invested in Common Core. Also the other true expert on National Validation Committee was the Math Expert-Professor Jim Milgram and he said that psychologist was involved and indeed the outcomes show it (hear interviews with these two experts below). In video of clinical psychologist is a very powerful warning of the kind of people that will be raised by these runaway standards. The Common Core standards biggest violation (and there are many) is that it takes away parental authority. So get informed parents because if you didn't know--you will never gain it back and who will suffer most? The child in front of your very eyes. So take time out of your very busy schedule-study and do your homework--most Superintendents,Principals and Legislators haven't and it's proving dangerous for America's children.

National Sexuality Standards?!
On page 9 under "Guiding Values and Principles"
"Instruction by qualified sexuality education teachers is essential for student achievement."
Wouldn't that be the parents? Who decides who is "qualified"?
"Students need opportunities to engage in cooperative and active (I underlined those two words) learning strategies, and sufficient time must be allocated for students to practice (I underlined that one too) skills relating to sexuality education."
What does that mean? Something like this?
And I just have to highlight this principle:
Students need multiple opportunities and a variety of assessment strategies to determine their achievement of the sexuality education standards and performance.
President Obama’s new budget, submitted a few weeks ago, eliminates all funding for any abstinence education programs and directs the funding to US HHS to establish yet another new contraception program!
This is the Obama policy with sex education: Eliminate abstinence programs and direct the money towards sexually explicit sex education for middle and high school students.
Millions of Obama administration dollars have been funneled into SC to promote shocking sex education materials and to support those that oppose abstinence-until-marriage programs.
I pray more people will study and support Martha Roby's Bill to defend State's Rights:

Take the time to smell the stench of Common Core amidst the flowery speeches and resolve to make a difference and may it be as in Isaiah 54-
13 All your children will be taught by the Lord,
and great will be their peace.
14 In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you;
you will have nothing to fear.
Terror will be far removed;
it will not come near you.
15 If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing;
whoever attacks you will surrender to you.
16 “See, it is I who created the blacksmith
who fans the coals into flame
and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc;
17 no weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the Lord.
