Kentucky Files Bill to Repeal Common Core
Breitbart - Big Government ^ | January 19, 2014 | Mary Chastain

Posted on 01/20/2014 7:34:38 AM PST by don-o

Kentucky State Representative Tom Kerr (R-Taylor Mill) has filed a bill to repeal Common Core, House Bill 215.

“Common Core takes the control of local schools out of the teachers and parents that are involved with the children and their education,” said Rep. Diane St. Onge, R-Lakeside Park, one of 10 Republican legislators to co-sponsor the bill.

It isn't likely to pass with a Democrat-controlled House and governor. Kentucky was the first state to implement Common Core and the Democrats still support the controversial education standards. Representative Derrick Graham (D-Frankfort) chairs the House Education Committee and doesn't foresee the bill passing.

Kerr said there should not be federal intrusion into education standards and such issues should be handled on the state level.

No worries for Team Obama. A federal judge will tell Kentucky it must obey Il Douchebag.

I'm heading up a group against Common Core in my parish. Here's some of the info we've been looking through:

Common Core Information Links Prominent Catholic scholars --- 132 of them at last count ---co-signed a letter which was delivered to every bishop in the United States, expressing grave concern about Common Core as a threat the Catholic identity of parochial schools, and the Judeo-Christian values which are at the root of Western Civilization’s culture and heritage:

http://files.meetup.com/1387375/Letter%20to%20Catholic%20Bishops%20on%20the%20Common%20Core%20F.pdf

“Common Core Debate Intensifies Among Catholic Educators” (Nat. Cath. Register)

http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/common-core-debate-intensifies-among-catholic-educators/

Two groups in Nashville have lead the charge against Common Core either because they are concerned about its questionable (secular) educational standards, or its overall threat to Religious and Constitutional liberties: TN Against Common Core. tnacc.net (Karen Bracken) and TN Eagle Forum tneagleforum.org (Bobbie Patray). On a national level, the whistle-blowers are Heritage Foundation and CATO Institute.

The ObamaCare of Education: “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it”?

TN agreed to accept Common Core Standards in January 2010 before they even had a draft (March 2010), let alone the Final version (June 2010). Here is Common Core Public License -notice protected by copyright. These cannot be altered in any way
http://www.corestandards.org/public-license

Attachment Above- TNFirst to the Top Executive Summary. Notice that the Standards mentioned are Common Core Standards. This Law was signed on January 18, 2010. The Common Core Standards did not come out for approval until June 2010. How did our State Legislature know what they were in January 2010?? How did the State Board of Education know what they were? In addition at the top of page 3, it talks about our State Longitudinal Data System and other areas it can pull from. What will stop them from incorporating more data points, collecting more personal and family information about students and their families, without their parents’ knowledge or consent?

HERITAGE FOUNDATION:

http://blog.heritage.org/2013/06/23/common-cores-nationalizing-tentacles-sat-act-and-ged-alignment/

There are plenty of secular reasons why Common Core standards reflect, not “deeper learning” and “state of the art learning strategies” as they claim, but muddled, experimental methodologies, and goals hovering dubiously at the lowest common denominator.

NATIONAL SEXUALITY EDUCATION STANDARDS: Look at bottom of pg. 6 and you will see Common Core State Standards involvement. If you look at who was involved in their makeup, you see Planned Parenthood everywhere.

WHO’S BEHIND COMMON CORE:

It is important to know that here in Tennessee, the TN DEPT OF EDUCATION received 3.6 million dollars from Gates, SCORE- Bill Frist/ Jamie Woodson Organization received 1.8 million dollars, and the Fordham Institute was given 6.7 million from Gates and asked to grade Common Core. National PTA received 1 million dollars and Chamber of Commerce has received from Gates to promote Common Core. It is hard to stay objective when you are getting money to promote. Remember Gates spent millions to create Common Core w/ Feds, Partner w/ Pearson who own the Educational Textbooks, and gave 30 million dollars to David Coleman to align SAT w/ Common Core Standards. I included a few articles below.

THE BIG PLAYERS ARE: FEDERAL GOVT, BILL & MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION, ELI BROAD, WALTON FOUNDATION

2 SHORT VIDEOS by the architects and planners of Common Core:

David Coleman, president of the College Board and creator of the Common Core State Standards, talks to data analysts in a conference in Boston on May 31, 2013. Coleman wrote Common Core Standards and is now at SAT aligning the College Admissions Testing.

Linda Darling Hammond (who was Obama's first choice for Education Secretary and an associate of William Ayers, now acclaimed “education expert”, formerly “Weather Underground” terrorist bomber. Hamond was very influential in Common Core Standards and is in charge of one of the 2 National Tests. She is at Smarter Balance, where TN choose to go with the PARCC Tests. This video will show you the mindset of the push for standards.
