Help Fight for the Full Withdrawal from Common Core #StopCommonCore 2/3/15

Parents across the country are fighting tooth & nail to remove & repeal the entire common core program from their states.

In CT the movement is more active in the southern suburban towns than in the northern towns ... the urban parents do not seem to be knowledgeable about what common core actually is & the northern parents appear to be too busy to question exactly what is going on

The governors race last year showed that support for the 3rd candidate running (Republican Joe Visconti who ran as a petitioning candidate against Democrat Gov. Malloy & Republican Tom Foley) was due in large part to his support of repealing common core.

Repealing common core seems to be a national election issue which the local elections in CT has not yet picked up on.  
When will the parents in CT start fighting for their children's education & demand that common core be stopped?

Core of the Problem: The Real Agenda Behind Common Core

This video is a compilation video which explains problems with Common Core & some of the people & agendas behind those who are promoting the program

The children in the urban areas where there is already an "Education Gap" are targeted for the lesser quality education with this program the gap is WIDENED.

The shysters while lying to the parents with their wording clearly designed to confuse what it actually happening with the test results & downplay the fact the there are parents who have figured out there is a serious problem & are fighting back.

These parents are fighting to both keep their children out of the data collection testing. These parents are fighting to get common core removed from the school systems in CT.

The worst fear for the proponents of these tests & program is that enough parents will wake up & say NO! Why you ask; because that will remove the money train for those who are paying the shills which are promoting the testing & the common core program... 

These corporate guys are getting paid millions so their paying 6 figures to the men & women to do their experiments on our children for them is a very worthy investment. 
What is a few thousand dollars over the course of the year to pay for some low level sales people to promote common core to the uneducated parents? 
There are among us teachers, administrators, school board members who have gotten "special training" on how to sell common core to the parents & get paid each time they go out to a group to promote common core. Be warned they will not tell you that they are being paid to promote common core... 

But these same people will refuse to show up to public forums where there are questions from the public or educated people that know the full story of common core on the panel. In fact in each of the forums where the shysters were invited to speak they have always been a no show because they know they can not defend what they are doing to our children.

VIDEO: Teacher says he helped write Common Core to end white privilege

 Campus Reform brought to our attention Dr David Pook who is profiting from the common core connections. 

While the private school that he teaches at refuses to use common core because it's inferior to what it teaches; Pook states his intentions in working on common core is to "end white privilege".

How is putting forward an "inferior education" going to "end white privilege" or uplift minorities? 

How does making everyone that can't afford to go to private schools equally ignorant help the Blacks & Latinos in our already failing schools?  

How is getting rich on the increased taxes of the working class while oppressing their children in horrific substandard schools not slavery by another name?

The Case Against Common Core

As we head into the new school year isn't it time that as parents & grandparents we do some research into what is going on in our schools?
The lessons being taught are not what we had when we were children in school & the changes are not good if we want our children to have better lives than we do now.

#BeYourChildrensVoice & tell our school board & elected officials at the state to get our children out of this program that is designed to fail our students by giving them a substandard education while stealing our taxes to enrich the people who are pushing these tests
