More and more people are looking at what to do against Common Core. They are also learning that Charter Schools is not the answer as it is like Common Core (CSCOPE in Tx.), taking away PARENTAL AUTHORITY and that is not acceptable. Sooner or later School Choice will be pushed as The Choice but already experience has shown that more private schools are aligned to Common Core and certainly Charter Schools will so there is really no such thing as School Choice.
It is time to make a stand. Public education has been broken down because we have not been involved. We have trusted, or been too apathetic or too busy. Many reasons and some good, led majority of Americans to be uninvolved. But no longer can we afford it. This quote ought to wake most parents up--
Many of us have long known that not only the teaching of immoral sexual practices in school but the teaching of those things at younger and younger ages has been specifically targeted to evade parental values.
This video is a must watch because "It's Perfectly Normal" (approved supplemental book in Illinois for 10 yr old and yet not fit for prisoners) and other books permeating on school shelves and/or online will lead to more sexualization of your kids. They are being led to the path of addiction in this case sexual addiction (perversion) under the lie of children's need to know.
I learned from a national group named--CURE that there are many books from Pre-K on up which is really part of an anti-bias curriculum. So we have to get beyond the lie that this is not happening (you will when you watch It's Perfecty Normal). The books we read in the past are now being removed and replaced with newer books--as after all if you want to change America--it begins with the mind. And now with schools letting children read their Accelerated Reading books online--who knows what children are reading? Shockingly many of the books our children have access to read in school and/or online have very sexual overtones and are very filthy. I can't even name them. Please go to CURE's website to get more info on them.
How can we fight it?
- With many prayers. Please cover the children daily--before they go to school and before they do homework and before they go to bed. Pray over them and let them hear or if they are old enough to read God's Word (even a paragraph is good). There is something very healing about it and very soothing. Reading the Holy Bible led to deeper, higher, thinking skills for our founders. And as Professor Sandra Stotsky who is the foremost Academic on ELA (the ELA expert that was on the National Validation Committee and would not sign off on Common Core)--it is like reading Shakespeare and she says it's great to let them read it!!! Bring a praying friend with you at the meeting. Ask Pastor if it's ok if you pray first to open the meeting.
- Give him a copy of Liberty Council's list of what churches can and cannot do
- Join a Stop Common Core group in your state (they all have a fb page) such as this one for Alabama. Go to Cure for help in finding them.
- Churches can share information and parents need to know--so they can defend their child!
- If your church would like to help homeschool--be a part of Operation Jericho
Example of how you can talk to the Pastor (food for thought):
First ask the Pastor if he remembered how parents could go to their local school boards if they had a problem with what was being taught in school and they usually say yes. Tell them that is no longer the case. Share with them that there was a Race To The Top Application for Fed grant $$ that was given to all states around Nov 2009. Because states were desperate for money most applied within two months. In the application, they would get points for agreeing to certain things--most importantly that they would give up their own state's standards for what was called Common Core Standards (which were copyrighted and you can't change anything can only add up to 15%).
Let Pastor read a minute the front of brochure. Then point to the part where I quote the experts on the back such as Prof. Jim Milgram and Prof. Sandra Stostky (who I say the whole country should be listening to the most.)
Then tell Pastor about how they want us all to think this is just about academics and I point to the brochure and let them read the words about the National Sexuality Standards--"Students need opportunities to engage in cooperative and active learning strategies, and sufficient time must be allocated for students to practice skills relating to sexuality education."
I read out loud to them the part on the brochure about Planned Parenthood wanting to be our children's sex experts. And I follow with the inside of brochure on the observations from Mental Health Therapist.
We have seen miracles as if the Pastor was prepared ahead of time. I think of Habakkuk 2:1-4 as if the Pastors had been waiting for this time:
I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Try it and be surprised--but always cover it in prayer first and have someone praying over your meeting. I have a feeling God has been talking to the Pastors and their hearts are ready to hear from you. They need to hear from someone in their flock! Please don't wait--let it be you--God makes all the difference and will delight you with His help. May the Lord bless you. It is time for America to seek God and ask for His forgivenes. He is good and His love endures forever...
Hear the word of the Lord, you Israelites,
because the Lord has a charge to bring
against you who live in the land:
“There is no faithfulness, no love,
no acknowledgment of God in the land.
2 There is only cursing,a]">[a] lying and murder,
stealing and adultery;
they break all bounds,
and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
3 Because of this the land dries up,
and all who live in it waste away;
the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky
and the fish in the sea are swept away.
4 “But let no one bring a charge,
let no one accuse another,
for your people are like those
who bring charges against a priest.
5 You stumble day and night,
and the prophets stumble with you.
So I will destroy your mother—
6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.
“Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also reject you as my priests;
because you have ignored the law of your God,
I also will ignore your children.
After this --hope you will go to your local school board next. God is great and will be with you. And tell them about what's happening with New York (hear this about a Superintendent that spoke up)--it's gonna be a tsunami and it's coming to your state:
Praise for the LORD's Benefits
|1||Bless the LORD, O my soul:
|2||Bless the LORD, O my soul,
|3||who forgiveth all thine iniquities;

|6||The LORD executeth righteousness
|7||He made known his ways unto Moses,

|9||He will not always chide:
|10||He hath not dealt with us after our sins;
|11||For as the heaven is high above the earth,
|12||As far as the east is from the west,
|13||Like as a father pitieth his children,
|14||For he knoweth our frame;
|15||As for man, his days are as grass:
|16||For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;
|17||But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting
|18||to such as keep his covenant,
|19||The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens;
|20||Bless the LORD, ye his angels,
|21||Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts;
