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.

National Federation of Republican Women Resolution To Defeat National Standards--Pass On To Your State--Call Congress To Defund Common Core

NATIONAL FEDERATION OF REPUBLICAN WOMEN RESOLUTION
Defeat National Standards for State Schools
Passed Unanimously at the NFRW36th Biennial Convention
Kansas City, MO – October 1, 2011
WHEREAS, The national standards-based “Common Core State Standards” initiative is the centerpiece of the Obama’s Administration’s agenda to centralize education decisions at the federal level;
WHEREAS, The Obama Administration is using the same model to take over education as it used for healthcare by using national standards and boards of bureaucrats, whom the public didn’t elect and can’t fire or otherwise hold accountable;
WHEREAS, National standards remove authority from States over what is taught in the classroom and how it is tested;
WHEREAS, National standards undercut the principle of federalism on which our nation was founded;
WHEREAS, There is no constitutional or statutory authority for national standards, national curricula, or national assessments and in fact the federal government is expressly prohibited from endorsing or dictating state/local decisions about curricula; and
WHEREAS, The Obama Administration is attempting to evade constitutional and statutory prohibitions to move toward a nationalized public-school system by (1) funding to date more than $345 million for the development of national curriculum and test questions, (2) tying national standards to the Race to the Top charter schools initiative in the amount of $4.35 billion, (3) using the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) to pressure State Boards of Education to adopt national standards with the threat of losing Title 1 Funds if they do not, and (4) requesting Congress to include national standards as a requirement in the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary School Act (No Child Left Behind);
BE IT RESOLVED, That the National Federation of Republican Women vote to encourage all State Federation Presidents to share information about national standards with their local clubs; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That State Federation Presidents ask their members to (1) contact their State Boards of Education members and request that they retain control over academic standards, curriculum, instruction and testing,  (2) contact their Congress Members and request that they (i) protect the constitutional and statutory prohibitions against the federal government endorsing or dictating national standards, (ii) to refuse to tie national standards to any reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, (iii) defund “Race to the Top” money, and (iv) prohibit any more federal funds for the Common Core State Standards Initiative, including funds to assessment and curriculum writing consortia, and (3) spread the word about the threat of a federal government takeover of education.

Defund Common Core and the NCLB Waivers--Also HowTo Defend Parental Rights When Even Homeschooling Will Not Be Safe

Plans for national take-over of education is happening due to perfect storms and perfect partnerships--the only thing that can put a kink in their plans is if you the parent finds out and shares the truth(they were hoping you'd sleep through this storm).  Go to this website and see the complete picture and share with your legislators--after all, they are supposed to listen to "We the people", right?  It takes a lot of e-mails and calls so make yours.
http://truthinamericaneducation.com/category/race-to-the-top/


Players:  Here's a link to find out who some of them are (try not to get sick as you read through the article and the education trips) .  It takes a lot to pull the wool over our eyes when it comes to our kids and under the guise of improving our childrens education--who can resist?  Certainly most states in these economic times can't resist when the Obama administration is having competition for millions of dollars.  And now the offerings of No Child Left Behind Waivers to lure desperate states?

When free trips overlap with commercial purposes--"The commissioners stay in expensive hotels, like the Mandarin Oriental in Singapore. They spend several days meeting with educators in these places. They also meet with top executives from the commercial side of Pearson, which is one of the biggest education companies in the world, selling standardized tests,..."

 

Why Common Core and RTT must be defunded:
No. 1 Reason--Unconstitutional---Parental Input through local school boards will be a thing of the past.
No 2. Reason--Abe Lincoln's warning--"The philosophy of the schoolroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next."  
Here is where logic plays a part--warning from Mrs. Donna Garner
Fact:  We know that the Obama administration is pushing the social justice agenda.
Fact: We know that Kevin Jennings( now stayed in the Obama administration long enough to make sure the social justice agenda (particularly homosexuality) was put into the USDOE’s 10-page manual.
Fact:  Once the CCS get implemented in English and Math, all of  the other school subjects will follow (including Science, Social Studies, and Health).
Fact:  Teachers will be forced to teach whatever is in the CCS curriculum and assessments because of the national teacher evaluation system tracked by the national database.
Conclusion:  CCS will contain the social justice agenda, and teachers will be forced to teach it.  
Because I have tracked the development of the Common Core Standards since before Obama even took office, I have an extensive file. What I have seen is that the Obama administration tells the locals “not to worry” and then proceeds right on down the path it has set for itself.
I, for one, object very strongly to the social justice agenda that will be forced upon our public school students when those decisions should be left up to our elected state and local officials to make. 

(Kevin Jennings has moved on now to promote "Be The Change"--but the groundwork has been laid.)

And if you are still in doubt read this from the Washington Post:
ICYMI: A federal takeover of education
WASHINGTON, D.C. | October 3, 2011 -By George Will
Obama Gives States a Voice In ‘No Child’
— New York Times, Sept. 24
Many Americans, having grown accustomed to Caesarism, probably see magnanimity in that front-page headline. Others, however, read it as redundant evidence of how distorted American governance has become. A president "gives" states a "voice" in education policy concerning kindergarten through 12th grade? How did this quintessential state and local responsibility become tethered to presidential discretion? Here is how federal power expands, even in the guise of decentralization--read rest.

A few in Washington are starting to speak up and the National Federation of Republican Women have passed a Resolution to Defeat National Standards--hope you will also by calling your Congress (make sure to contact the leadership too--202 224 3121).
