Your educational freedom is under attack

Should Barack Obama and federal bureaucrats determine what your child is taught?They think so!Enter the national Common Core Standards system.

This system is an effort by special interests and the federal government to eliminate state and local control over standards and testing via the creation of a NATIONAL CURRICULUM.

Embedded in the 2009 Stimulus Bill, as a program called “Race to the Top,” states were monetarily bribed to pass Common Core, and most did.

The Common Core takes away local authority to determine what your children learn and who teaches to them.All fifty states must refuse membership in the two testing consortia: Partnership for Assessment of College and Career Readiness (PARCC) and Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) which are central to the Common Core.The problem is that state legislators across the country are supporting implementation of Common Core.

Thankfully I have some good news amid the bad.

Bills have been introduced in a number of states to stop ObamaCore in America.

Please contact your State Senator and State Representative right away and insist they defend state sovereignty from federal interference by refusing to participate in the national Common Core Standards!

There is no doubt that the public school system in America is broken.ObamaCore adds fuel to the fire by dictating that every school system follow a one-size-fits-all approach to education.

First created by Jimmy Carter and the Congress in 1979, the U.S. Department of Education has been working toward one goal:

the centralization and absolute control of your child’s education by federal bureaucrats in Washington.

Common Core is simply the latest iteration of the DOE’s war on children.

The Common Core subjects all students to a set of standards, which are laced with unproven methods and techniques, and which subvert independence in curriculum choice.

There is absolutely no constitutional basis for national standards, national assessments, or national curricula.

If the Common Core is adopted, you will have no voice in determining educational standards for your children.

Common Core will cost millions and millions of dollars in each state to implement and administer —

one state estimates it will cost up to $300 million!

. . . and you just know big government politicians will use these costs to justify massive tax increases!

Contact your State Senator and State Representative and insist they defend state sovereignty from federal interference by refusing to participate in the Common Core!

For Freedom,

Jason Laird
Executive Vice President

P.S. The Common Core will dictate such things as educational content, development, and testing.

If the Common Core is adopted, your state will cede all authority over education to the federal government.

Contact your State Senator and State Representative right away and insist they defend state sovereignty from federal interference by refusing to participate in the Common Core!
