Standing against big government and for the people!
In the last few weeks, both Heritage Foundation and Rasmussen have posted poll results showing that a great majority of Americans have little or no knowledge of Common Core or what it means for the American education System. In a nutshell, it is the final step in both turning control of our supposedly state run Public Schools over to the federal government and removing the last vestiges of local control.
There are many people across the country attempting to fight this take over but not nearly enough to be successful. I'm posting the information and links shown below in hopes that more people will become familiar with the loss of freedom and parental control which lies just ahead for our once free nation.
Just over a week ago, a grass roots effort by hundreds of thousands of Americans, forced the House of Representatives to listen to the people and vote to De-fund Obamacare. It will take a similar effort, at both the federal and state levels to prevent a take over of our children's education.
I pray that with everyone's help this monstrosity can be stopped.

Common Core ~~~ You Tube Video Links

In Georgia a group of teachers and former teachers has posted the following group of 5 videos on You Tube, (originally 10 shorter segments compress into 5) so there are multiple topics within each of the 5 separate videos.
In the right hand side bar for each part, you will see many additional links to other videos concerning CC.
The actual CC standards can be found at the "cut and Paste link" below
Only the standards for English and Math have been finalized so far. But all other areas will be following as time goes by. They make for rather dry reading and are lengthy so it helps to get some overview before tackling the standards themselves.
Also, as the 5 part video above make clear, Common Core is the latest in a progression of federal programs that have been increasing Federal control over our educational systems ever since the Carter years when the federal Dept. of Education was established.
Equally troubling just this month, the Chicago city school system added another segment to Common Core. Sex Education in all classes K through 12. I've gathered some information on this including the companies involved. It's been interesting to learn the close ties they all have with Planned Parenthood.
If this is at all of interest to you, let me know and I'll post some links in a separate Blog post.
