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.

The Face Of The "Untested Common Core" Rigor On a 7 Year Old Who Is Also A Cancer Fighter--Why Must She Also Fight To Learn Right?

If your child is experiencing more stress due to math, english etc and you want to know more about Common Core--please call 334 422-4224 helpline--please be sure to leave a message and we will contact you.

Why do we fight against Common Core--the above picture says it all.   Wish we did not have to.  Wish it was all good and excellent as it is being promoted by Superintendent of Ed, Arne Duncan, Bill Ayers, Linda Darling Hammond, David Coleman, Lou Gerstner, Bill Gates etc. etc. (those names should have been enough cause to pause.)  But the harsh reality is it should never have been allowed to  be placed in schools.  It is untested and the results of the "pass it so we can know what's in it" mentality from the likes of Nancy Pelosi is predictable.  Unfortunately, that line of thinking has already given us Obamacare and no amount of tweaking and fixing of the implementation can stop what is basically a tortured mess called Common Core aka Obamacore.

There is enough information out there to destroy the promotion of college and career-ready standards but the most damaging aspect is the reality of its destructiveness to the children whose parents have been taken out of the loop.  Parental involvement is out of the picture when states agreed to the copyrighted Common Core and so now parents must fight to get it back.  Governors, Legislators need to get it--Parents Will Never Give UP.  They need to re-think and heed the warnings:

  • Joint Statement of Early Childhood Health and Education Professionals on the Common Core Standards Initiative ---Issued by the Alliance for Childhood March 2, 2010 www.allianceforchildhood.org "WE HAVE GRAVE CONCERNS about the core standards for young children now being written by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers."
  • Mental Health Concerns Regarding the Common Core Standards
    Joan R. Landes, M.A., AMHC
    No child-development experts, psychotherapists or mental health clinicians helped to
    draft the Common Core (CC) standards. The inherent risks of standardizing vulnerable children were in no way addressed. The frightening high-stakes assessments have already stressed teachers and students into clinical mental health disorders.
    CC demands early cortical specialization which leaves major areas of brain activation
    dormant. The heavy emphasis of CC upon left-prefrontal cortex executive functioning later handicaps the students for higher-order thinking and behaving because other large swaths of brain functioning haven’t been activated through sustained emphasis. It’s like training a child for 10 years to play the trumpet, then suddenly asking him to play baseball – it is very difficult because he specialized too much, too early.
    CC fosters curricula and teaching strategies which are developmentally inappropriate.
    Numerous examples exist of CC aligned curricula which require young children to participate in “group think” which leads to peer-dependence. Other examples exist of the use of behavior/attitudinal modification techniques in the primary grades to alter children’s values and habits.  These mental health interventions are dangerous in the hands of untrained school-teachers and have no business in a school that seeks to appropriately develop skills and impart knowledge.
    Approximately 20% of junior high and older students have suffered a “severe” mental
    illness including depression, eating disorders, suicidality, self-mutilation, substance abuse and trauma-induced reactions. The extra stressors imposed by high-stakes CC assessments, unproven teaching strategies and inflexible requirements will induce further emotional and physical bleeding in these high-risk kids.
    CC standards ignore current psychological research and drags education back to the
    industrial production practices of the 1910s. National standards prohibit meaningful customization of education. Instead of designing flexible, personalized education milestones, CC imposes heavy-handed, monolithic decrees more suitable for a manufacturing assembly line than for the cultivation of unique individuals. Expect kids with learning disabilities to suffer even more under this regimen.
    CC exploits the children of America as guinea pigs in an unethical social experiment that
    no profession or government entity would tolerate. No studies have shown that national standards increase educational success. Furthermore, CC standards have NEVER been subjected to any sort of peer-reviewed research trials. Without years of field-testing, the risks of the unknown should never be foisted on our vulnerable, defenseless children. The FDA requires more testing of the food color in Kool-Aid than has been required of Common Core.

I know we are fighting a big battle where the resources of this world is being poured like never before.  Common Core is destructive because it is a Giant Lie and it can only be defeated with TRUTH.

God is good, He is letting truth reach the hearts and this photo proves it.  Please share and make a difference--save the precious children!
