It was nice to see a good turnout of people wanting to learn more about Common Core at the meeting hosted by the Conservative Republicans of Southern Johnson County.  Thank you to a friend who shared these pictures.

Tonight: CWA’s nation-wide “Facts on Common Core Conference Call”

THURSDAY JUNE 27 at 7:30pm CDT (8:30pm EDT)
Concerned Women for America’s nation-wide “Facts Common Core Conference Call”

Calling all parents and grandparents! There is a power grab unfolding within your local school system. And it’s time you know the truth.

Over the past three years, the Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has been quietly working to seize control of the American education system without any input by the states. As a part of President Barak Obama’s stimulus package, Race to the Top grant money was earmarked for education initiatives in the states. Tied to this money is the progressive Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSS) and the results could be devastating to parent’s rights and our respective states’ education system.

It is imperative that you understand the CCSS initiative and how it will affect your child’s classroom.

Please join CWA’s nation-wide “Facts Common Core Conference Call” on June 27 at  7:30 CDT (8:30 p.m. EDT), as CWA’s Executive Director, Kenda Bartlett, moderates the discussion on exactly what is the CCSS, the program’s origins and the steps you can take to educate yourself and others on the Common Core.
Expert guests will include:

• Joy Pullmann, Heartland Institute
• Dr. Sandra Stotsky, Common Core Validation Committee Member
• Richard Innes, Bluegrass Institute

Please don’t miss this unique opportunity.

Call (760) 569-7676, and enter the participant access code 303989 to join the conference call.

Most states adopting CCSS did so to be eligible to compete for federal funding. To have a chance at that money, recession-racked states agreed to adopt the CC standards and the aligned national tests sight unseen. Only five states did not sign on to the CCSS; so unless you live in Alaska, Nebraska, Minnesota, Texas, or Virginia, this will affect your school system.
