I do not believe in or follow standards written by folks possessing little or no real education. This means you - “Eddikation”, “Political’Science’”, “Studies”, and other worthless degree possessors.
I prefer to call it Commie-Core.
Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963
#17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
This ping list is for the other articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

The keyword for the FREE REPUBLIC HOMESCHOOLERS FORUM is frhf.
Give me your children when they are young and they will never turn away from what they are taught is truth and how wonderful the government is for them and how government protects them and cares for them. (a bit off the famous quote but close enough to get the point across).
Socialist’s will be turned out and they will not know they have been brain washed.
God help America and let not evil prevail. We pray for thy mercy, forgiveness and help in America, in Jesus name , amen.
And of course private schools and homeschoolers clearly had no input when their state adopted this garbage! I am so upset with my state for being pulled into this. :(

Just say No. Do not comply. Tell the school your kid isn’t going to be attached to a machine so they can data mine him on the spot, and they can all go to hell.
Let’s have a dual system where kids are traditionally or classically educated and another one with this common core abomination and see who does better.
Let the kids who are using common core take the SAT and ACT. Let students who are classically or traditionally educated use some other test developed by administrators and teachers of classical education.
Start colleges that use a classical or traditional curriculum.
And sue the Bill and Linda Gates foundation up the wazoo.
I’ll take Commie Core for $500 Alex. :-)
This is scary stuff!
Personally Identifiable Information
..... will be ‘extracted ‘from each student, which will include the following data: parents names, address, Social Security Number, date of birth, place of birth, mothers maiden name, etc.
according to the SLDS brief,
“Sensitive Information will also be extracted, which delves into the intimate details of students lives:
1. Political affiliations or beliefs of the student or parent;
2. Mental and psychological problems of the student or the students family;
3. Sex behavior or attitudes;
4. Illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating, and demeaning behavior;
5. Critical appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents have close family relationships;
6. Legally recognized privileged or analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians, and ministers;
7. Religious practices, affiliations, or beliefs of the student or the students parent; or
8. Income (other than that required by law to determine eligibility for participation in a program or for receiving financial assistance under such program).
Students personal information will be submitted to a database managed by inBloom, Inc., a private organization funded largely by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The fact that Common Core Standards require childrens personal information to be provided to a database that can be expected to sell or share the data to unspecified companies is worrisome to many parents and educators.
It leads to total control and total tracking of the child, said Mary Black, curriculum director for Freedom Project Education, an organization that provides classical K-12 online schooling. .....It completely strips the child of his or her own privacy.
Common Core, along with Agenda 21 will be the undoing of this country.
The Socialist movement in our Educational system continues....
Though educational grants tied to Race to the Top and now Common Core, ....the federal government is doing what is expressly prohibited by the Constitution:
... directing,.. supervising... and controlling... the curriculum, and dictating its direction.
Government commandeering of education is a States Rights issue..... If the federal government has enough money to bribe the states to adopt its policies with taxpayer money, then the government is clearly overtaxing the American people.
<.....the big concern for home schools and private schools is that if the adoption of the CCSS leads to a national curriculum and ultimately national testing it will pressure them to teach their students according to the standards as well.
.... Recent statements from the College Board announce that they are making the move to changing the SAT to reflect the CCSS as well.>
From the article.
..... If the SAT is based on one curriculum, this move will seriously affect private school and home school students who take the SAT.
..... This may also cause colleges to accept only students who have an education based on the CCSS.
Essentially, the future is wrought with questions for homeschoolers and privately educated students if the Common Core Standards are nationally implemented.
<......”Common Core is the ultimate liberal bait and switch.
.... Obama, the ultimate transformation president, has baited the states with Race to the Top federal education funding. .....
...... States have become dependent on the federal funding and in this time of economic distress, have little opportunity to either raise state taxes or find other ways to raise funding for education (to separate themselves from the Race to the Top).
...... While the government has the states dependent on federal funding for education, it has made the switch.
The Obama administration has switched to Common Core standards..... With these standards, and especially with the teaching of informational texts rather than classics which involve analysis and critical thinking,..... The Indoctrination of Americas Youth will proceed with WARP SPEED!
The Father of Communism, Vladimir Lenin, said: Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Common Core appears to have all of the earmarks of the old USSRs programming system for children with several new innovative and chilling twists, of course.
History has shown that state-run information control, which begins with education, has always lead to disastrous results.”.....>
Did you mean fraught with questions?
Our children deserve an America not a 1984 World. we must see what is coming and stop it now!!!
