Have you heard about Common Core? The chilling truth behind these new national educational "standards" will terrify you. Common Core represents the latest and most comprehensive step in the drive toward complete government control of our children's education. Join us for a special presentation exposing the truth about Common Core and the ongoing struggle to roll back its implementation. Our speaker will provide examples of how Common Core threatens to further undermine, weaken, and centralize public and private education in our country.

I know why common core needs to be destroyed, I just have a suspicion about the unions in the pit of my stomach. Common core was tailor made for them and I don’t trust them one bit.
I’m very torn on this.
If they were for motherhood, I might have to rethink my position.
Parents know best.
It’s the data trove being collected on every student that should be the main concern and parents don’t have a clue . . .education has been dummied down as far as it can go. . .there is nowhere but up. Then add insult to injury there will probably have to be translators in every classroom paid by the taxpayer. Several years ago in one district in our area there was one student (child of illegals) who was provided a private Spanish speaking tutor to accompany him in all of his classes. . .the teachers didn’t even have a copy machine that worked in the building.
They either want an exemption (like Obamacare) or a payoff or they want conservatives to suddenly turn to support Common Core because the union opposes it.
We’re not that stupid. Common Core does suck...see the movie:
Didn’t hitler say he already had the kids?
