What Happens When Teachers Get A Glimpse of Their Future--What Planners of Common Core Hope Teachers Don't Find Out Until Too Late--Teachers Lose When Children Lose
Hear this from three education experts--two of which were on the National Validation Committee of Common Core and they have found it to be very deficient to the point that it is considered dangerous for children. Teachers need to listen to these top experts (look up their accolades) and heed their warnings.
Obama and his Department of Ed have launched a full scale plan using taxpayer money to nationalize education. And since the destruction is within the mind of a child-- it is easy to ignore the effects of Obamacore aka Common Core (here is a Common Core collage of excerpts from interviews with Professors Sandra Stotsky and Jim Milgram, Charlotte Iserbyt, Alice Linahan, Christel Swasey, Becky Gerritson, Jackie Virga, Col. John Eidsmoe, Ken Freeman,--you can make copies on CDs to share).
There are many parents already troubled about its effects in even as young as Kindergarteners (here's link of what is being forced upon one so young). And then here's a fb post from one parent whose heart is broken for many (the death of dreams toward exceptionalism?):
Here is what another mom experienced today in her child's classroom:
I had a real Common Core eye-opening, personal experience today when I volunteered in my youngest daughters kindergarten class today. I was asked by the teacher to pre-assess them on addition/subtraction. We are nearing 4 weeks in school and I was surprised of my task. She gave me the option to not do it since she knows how I feel but I decided to go ahead. I can't even explain the rising of tears and emotions when 75% of the children looked to me for answers and were totally confused. Most have never seen addition/subtraction problems and my hear broke every time one said "I can't do this" or "I don't understand". Assessing children on things they haven't even been exposed to is WRONG! It sets them up for failure right at the beginning of school and the look of discouragement on their faces...broke my heart! Why shatter their spirit so young when they haven't even discovered the true love of learning? That's NOT rigor, that's plain inhumane!
But another class that is falling as victims at the same time are the teachers. Many of them used to love their job. It brought them joy to see the gleam in the eyes of children when they finally get what the teacher has worked hard to teach--that love for learning. It also brought them joy when they saw a development of kindness and goodness toward fellow students when stories were read that promoted that Golden Rule. The teaching profession was just marvelous in the eyes of many teachers, parents and definitely to students. Then came Common Core...little by little the joy is leaving their profession.
This link is to one mother's story to give a glimpse of how joy was snuffed out...
Many educators keep trying to convince themselves that's it's going to get better--that it's just a matter of time and they just need a better approach... hence more training etc. etc...
And then there are more of those that finally tell themselves that it is just too much and maybe it's time to get out. For those that want to know what happened to their teaching profession, here is an interview with one teacher who had been at the top and then was brought low by the very people that at one point commended him for being such fine teacher. If you are a teacher, please listen and realize you are not the problem. However, it is also time for you to realize that "you" can be part of the solution.
Here's another food for thought to make you realize this had been planned a long time ago.
Sometimes truth hurts but God is able to help us when we hurt and He certainly loves the little children. By the way, there is help for you if you feel like you've been squeezed too hard. Set yourself free and help God's children. Remember the Founders ended tyranny by asking God to be part of the equation and please know God can overcome anything the other side throws your way(just be sure to be on the right side of God).
