POLICE MEET GEORGIA PARENTS OUTSIDE SCHOOL FOR OPTING CHILDREN OUT OF STATE TEST
Breitbart ^ | April 17, 2014 | by DR. SUSAN BERRY

Posted on 04/17/2014 2:00:12 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

On Wednesday Tracy and Mary Finney of Marietta, Georgia were met by a police officer outside their children’s public school and informed they were trespassing on school property because they opposed the school’s process of testing all children.

The Finneys, whose children attend West Side Elementary School, had decided to opt their children out of Georgia’s state test, the CRCT.

~~~snip~~~~

Meg Norris, an organizer of United Opt-Out Georgia, told Breitbart News she is “shocked” at how the mandates to test children are being enforced in Georgia.

“It’s happening in schools all over Georgia,” Norris said. “Even children who are autistic must be tested.”

“Because of federal mandates, they are putting children through this,” she continued. “One child missed the first day of testing and the entire class was refused ice cream, leading to that child being bullied by his classmates.”

Norris explained that this year is the final year Georgia’s CRCT is to be used. Next year, the test is to be replaced by the Common Core-aligned PARCC assessment. “They say the CRCT was aligned with Common Core,” she added, “but I don’t see any evidence of that. As far as I can tell they’re teaching using the Common Core standards, but using the old CRCT to test the children.”

Norris, a former teacher, said she taught the Common Core standards for 18 months and could see what it was doing to her students. She added that Common Core has become a major issue in the elections this year.

“I just won’t vote for any politician who supports the Common Core standards,” she said.

More tax money wasted. Like they don’t have real criminals to catch?

The cops should be fired. I’m getting sick of all these a-holes “following orders”. And then they whine like libs with “it’s my job. I need to feed my family” crap.

Screw their families.

We will unfortunately need to see a lot more of this to break through the wall of stupid that led so many otherwise normal people to support it and things like it.

The tempo of resistance may have to pick up, but hopefully it will be peaceful, let the authorities use violence like Bull Connor did in Birmingham.

Make sure their violence is video recorded from as many angles as possible and widely distributed.....

you know they’re happy little nazis when they say we’re just following orders. like that exonerates them from any personal responsibility or moral thought.

zero-tolerance IS nazism - rules are rules, just following orders.

But its not called bullying when the government does it on behalf of a federal or internaional authority that wants to use Agenda 21 infoctination to convert your children into progressiv NWO citizens. It damn sure would if the police were there to force FFRF protesters at a nativity scene, right?

"It’s like we need another Bundy Brigade every 10 minutes."

In fact, we do. We, as citizens, ought to literally up in arm en masse at the entirety of this government, from top to bottom. All citizens, all the time. That is the eternal vigilance the Founders warned us we would need.

Benjamin Franklin is famously quoted, in response to a woman's question regarding the type of government we had been given, "A republic, if you can keep it."

If we can keep it, indeed. It's time we all started being keepers of the Republic in the manner the Founders would have prescribed and in the manner patriots recently demonstrated for us at the Bundy ranch.

Well then vote for David Pennington for Governor in the GOP primary on May 20th. We need to get rid of Raw Deal.

What she really means is that kids belong to the State i.e. the Feds, just like in communist countries.

Government is getting more oppressive every day and it is not a sure thing that it will change even if we got a more “conservative” guvmint in the future.

Common Core certainly says that kids belong to the state.

The next step will be to outlaw all non-public schools and put all students under the control of the unionized education bureaucracy.

“One child missed the first day of testing and the entire class was refused ice cream, leading to that child being bullied by his classmates.”

Matthew 18

1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Eric Holder: Banning Homeschooling Doesn’t Violate Fundamental Rights

Those of us who homeschool should be concerned because the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, in the government’s arguments essentially said that he believes that a law that bans homeschooling would violate no fundamental liberties.

Homeschooling is the worst of all because it says you DO own your kids and the feral government doesn't.

The “otherwise normal people” will never admit being played
the ignorant fool. They will never admit, even to themselves
they were duped into this. Better to just discard them and
ignore their existence and defeat them in every aspect.

I totally believe these parents are within their rights to refuse having their children tested. However, I don’t believe the school should have to provide special accommodations for their kids while they’re not taking the test. I wouldn’t think the kids can just be left unattended during the hours of testing.

I have a PhD in Education. Curriculum and Assessment is an area I know about.

OK now that I have established my credentials I am going to express my professional opinion

I believe that any parent, anywhere regardless of location who sends their child to a public school is guilty of child abuse. This is not a religious thing because public schools are are just as bad for the non-religious as the religious. They are as bad for children of liberals as conservatives. Your kids are better off dropping out of high school, getting a GED and a job than graduating from a public school. Home school, private school, even a service like K12.com are better options.

I am not very welcome at education conferences

If you’ve every listened to Ron White, he will tell you that he was in debate in high school, but he didn’t last too long. When he didn’t have a counterpoint, seems he responded to a fellow debater with the words, “Weeelll, phuuuuuk yew!”
