I call on all retired teachers and administrators to Fight for our children's future. Keep education decisions local not federal.

1 year 1 month ago

With a federal education system, what is stopping future administrations, aka presidents from changing the curriculum at whim, with the stroke of a pen? We don't know what kind of presidents we might elect. Could be evangelical conservative christian OR a secret muslim, we DON'T KNOW.

What is going to take place is not what our constitution has been standing for in these last few hundred years, and seems to follow the agenda of few who have taken the control of all.

Help us in Virginia -- we need help figuring out how the Virginia SOLs (standards of learning) are implemented. They are tightly aligned with Common Core, but somewhat different. They tell us that the standards are "better," and maybe they are. But, what's happening with the data?

Have you had any response? On this video from Freedomworks: FreedomWorks On Tap "Common Core Fails", they state that Virginia is one of 5 states that has not adopted Common Core.

Hi Shelly. I suspect that you are in a low population area, as I am here in S.E Washington State. As Administrator of VFCI, I just joined FW Stopping C.C. and also requested an alliance, as well as signed the petition.

I'm in the Studio City, CA area... are there any others in my area who want to find out more about Common Core? Why don't the educators want parents to know the content?

1 year 1 month ago

The teachers and principles have been forbidden to discuss this with parents and the public. You know there's something amiss when these edicts are passed down from the top.

I tried to talk about it with the Principal at my daughter's school and he basically tried to tell me that CCSS would promote a deeper learning. CA standards are high, it's a shame that the state will lower their standards to adopt common core.

I think that a lot of these educators are in the dark about Common Core. It may be that your principal isn't any more informed than many of these teachers.

I missed it :( Thought I'd RSVP'ed but didn't get call and forgot about it. Will it be archived so can get the info talked about?

Being in Texas, I don't have to worry as much as other states, especially since the backdoored program CSCOPE has been identified for nullification. I hope, however, I can be of some use for any other state's efforts.
