Ask each how can he trust Tommy Bice in light of the "ruse" played on parents of Alabama. Can everyone send a fax to Governor Bentley--(334) 353-0004--Kindly Ask Him To Help Get Rid Of Common Core! Each Day A Child Is Mentally Abused.

Dear Governor Bentley, Del Marsh and Mike Hubbard and other Legislators that are Pro-Common Core:
What Happens When Trust Is Lost?
What happens to the so-called friend (Governor, Legislators) that's near you and allows your children to get hurt? This is what Alabama parents and really many parents across the country are having to decide. The fate of their children lies in who will help them change the education system.
Common Core Standards, which now many people know-- take away parental authority in education. Local school boards are now just rubber stamps with someone out of state controlling the standards. State School Boards signed away that authority for federal money.
Voters are watching current state leaders which appear to be willing under the disguise of improving the future work population married with agendas--(something in the order of dear old Russia--just more techie).
And they don't blink an eye in throwing parents (and their parental authority) "under the bus."
Citizens are asking governors such as Governor Bentley in Alabama and their legislature, to let the children get out of these untested, unproven, state budget-robbing Common Core standards that are very detrimental.
Please don't ignore the parents--like Pharaoh ignoring the cries of the children of Israel. Common Core is like poison, as Prof Sandra Stotsky (invited by CC folks to validate Common Core and she said NO) said, no matter how expensive the poison supply, it must be stopped.
Thank God for all the Conferences/Discussions about Common Core--people are taking notice and truth is being unleashed. This picture is of 1-18-2014 Conference in Dotha, Al.
Why are parents so angry about Common Core?
- It has taken the joy out of learning, replaced with anxiety and tears. Sooner or later the child figures out that he/she is no longer important. It is the test that's important.
- It has taken the joy out of teaching as now many teachers are leaving the profession unable to bear what they see happening to the children they love.
- Children are treated as guinea pigs by developers (Bill Ayers and Linda Darling Hammond for example) to see how to best influence the future mindset of our children--calling the killers of hard-working Americans on 9/11 as "Freedom Fighters". They use every method available and with today's technology--there are plenty of ways to gather data subtly or not to help develop approaches and/or means to influence.
- Troubling negative mindset of the developers that they would tout the Bluest Eye as a National Example of what they consider as "good reading" for children.
- Developers not heeding the warnings of Mental Health experts and therefore many of the teachings are very confusing, manipulative and destructive as it did not follow the best approach to develop the minds of children.
- "Education Goldmine" has clouded the thinking of many decent people to sell out the children in lieu of perceived profits and/or power.
- Most importantly, parents which used to be the most important part of education are now ignored and have no recourse for problems they are seeing with their most precious children who are living the nightmare results of the so-called rigorous Common Core standards.
In Alabama for Governor Bentley and the Legislature to leave the fate of Common Core to the leadership of Tommy Bice the Superintendent of Ed, is like watching a crime --when you have something you can do about it. Stephanie Bell and Betty Peters, our two board members proven to expose corruption, have clearly pointed out the "ruse" that was performed by Tommy Bice Nov 14, 2013 (as if we no longer were under Common Core).
Tommy Bice rescinded the Memorandum Of Agreement (MOA) with the owners of CC--when he already knew there was a legal memorandum in Feb 2013 that told him the MOA was no good and that it was superseded by Alabama College and Career-Ready Standards.
However, Governor Bentley, Del Marsh, Mike Hubbard--we are still able to read and comprehend truths (something Common Core may destroy in future generations.)
And we hope you will take the time to read the definition (which contains the National Standards aka Common Core) because as more parents find out about the ruse--there will be no going back and one way or another we will with God's help set the children free.
As one mental health expert have said a generation that can think independently is free. The bottom line should not be making the best workers for companies but "freedom loving people that think independently". Surely you want that for your children as well...
Here are to do list for those wishing to get rid of Common Core:
Ask each how can he trust Tommy Bice in light of the above info about the "ruse" he played on parents of Alabama.
Call, fax, email, write letters to governors, legislators, local and State School Boards.
Needd you to shine the light on truths--make it to be a daily task to do something to either call, fax, email one or more and preferrably make it a daily job to help melt the phone lines of these people. Too many have forgotten they are there for WE THE PEOPLE--it is time they understand.
Attend conferences that share truth as truth is so powerful it can set a nation free.
Of course please give this to God in prayer daily.
And let's do it the way George Washington did at the start of this nation--get on our knees. May an awesome-loving God, forgive us and heal our land and send like he did in the time of Moses---DELIVERANCE. As more parents see the mental health trauma of these rigorous standards--the more we will grow and Stop Common Core. May God bless you and your family.
