The Final Nail in the Coffin: The Death of Freedom in Our Schools
26 August 2014 | Share on Facebook
Those of us who were educated pre-Common Core knew to put up a fight over the ever encroaching martial control of our hometowns. For the generation that is growing up at risk of being hauled straight from their classroom to prison for crimes such as 'cursing' and joking about hunting dinosaurs, things may be different.
If the government isn't told to step away from our schools soon, today's children WILL grow up with only the information the government wants to provide, and fearing the disproportionate consequences for even perceived disobedience.

Bobby Jindal sues Obama admin over Common Core
August 27, 2014 By Katie | Share on Facebook
Governor Jindal of Louisiana, alleges that Common Core violates the tenth amendment, which protects state's rights and he is doing something about it. Why the Obama admin in particular?
Before the president "hijacked" the legislation, Jindal supported it. It was supposed to be a set of guidelines regarding what students should know at each grade level, that states were welcome to use, or not.
Jindal now feels that Obama is using it to push his personal agenda in the classroom by dictating every bit of the curriculum.

As if Common Core wasn't already doing enough to ensure that education is the last thing on the minds of school administrators everywhere, some terrifying new standards are being introduced.
The company that controls the SAT's and AP tests has decided to change the way U.S. History will be taught to include "International Perspectives." Perhaps too many, as a full third of the new curriculum was not designed by Americans.
The new curriculum almost seems to paint the U.S. as the bad guy...

Religion must go against Common Core or something.
There's little a group of teenage boys can do when a teammate is lying injured on the field during a high school football game. This group decided to pray.
The offended atheist brigade says that they're offended because an adult helped lead the prayer- despite that adult being a local pastor, with no connection to the school, who was invited by the team as a volunteer.

Mayor: Adult Illegal Aliens With 'Graying' Hair Enrolled in Public Schools
August 27, 2014 | Share on Facebook
The DOJ has instructed schools not to attempt to verify, or even question, the ages of foreign students who are not legal citizens.
Mayor Kennedy of Lynn, MA. is finding out firsthand why this is a problem. Illegal immigrants with gray hair and wrinkles are enrolling in public schools en masse in her district, claiming to be between 14 and 17 years old.
They're getting away with it, and there is nothing the schools can do about it. How long will they be able to keep up this charade?
