This is a huge indicator that there's so much the American public will not see. Long and short--House members must vote NO to ESEA rewrite bill. Call them at 202-224-3121 and Paul Ryan Speaker Paul Ryan’s contact info: @SpeakerRyan Phone: 1-608-224-3121. Surely, they're hearing it's affecting even the Presidential Candidates and will certainly affect members hoping to be elected.
Here's an excerpt from the rewrite and keep in mind who will really be in charge with defining the terms they are using like--"may include programs, ac-
tivities, and courses necessary to provide a
well-rounded education'--when it's a bill okayed by Obama.
Page 163: 6) ...is based on a comprehensive needs assess-
ment of the entire school that takes into account in-
formation on the academic achievement of children
in relation to the challenging State academic stand-
ards, particularly the needs of those children who
are failing, or are at-risk of failing, to meet the chal-
lenging State academic standards and any other fac-
tors as determined by the local educational agency.... (any other factors? ?)
On page 164: ...including each of the subgroups of
students (as defined in section 1111(c)(2))
to meet the challenging State academic
‘‘(ii) use methods and instructional
strategies that strengthen the academic
program in the school, increase the amount
and quality of learning time, and help pro-
vide an enriched and accelerated cur-
riculum, which may include programs, ac-
tivities, and courses necessary to provide a
well-rounded education; and
‘‘(iii) address the needs of all children
in the school, but particularly the needs of
those at risk of not meeting the chal-
lenging State academic standards, through
activities which may include--
‘‘(I) counseling, school-based
mental health programs, specialized
instructional support services, men-
toring services, and other strategies to
improve students’ skills outside the
academic subject areas;
This is soo bad that Phyllis Schlafly warns--If you oppose that liberal agenda, tell your member of Congress to vote no on the bill to reauthorize federal control of public education.
'A prime purpose of public education is to teach children "who we are" as Americans, but the definition of "who we are" has been hijacked by liberals. Obama has used "who we are" to promote everything from Syrian refugees to the Dream Act to closing Guantanamo, and even Speaker Ryan recently said we must increase the number of Muslims allowed into our country because of "who we are."
In Tennessee, where tens of thousands of Muslim refugees have resettled, state standards for social studies require middle school children to spend three weeks studying the tenets of the Muslim faith.
Schools cannot teach anything positive about Christianity, but seventh-grade students were writing that "Allah is the only God" and "Muhammad is the messenger of God."
In Georgia, students were given a fill-in-the-blank exercise: "Allah is the (BLANK) worshiped by Jews & Christians." Students were penalized unless they completed the sentence with "same God" as the correct answer.
The AP U.S. History Standards are guidelines for how public schools are teaching school kids "who we are." APUSH presents American history as the migration of various people coming into conflict with each other, and treats the English settlers who founded our country as just one group of migrants (white Europeans) who are guilty of oppression against Africans, Indians and Mexicans.
As Frederick M. Hess pointed out in a recent article, liberals view schooling primarily as a way to combat poverty and racism, undermine traditional family values, and trash American heritage and heroes." Read more
....Too many red flags to indicate this is going beyond academics. Our lesson from Common Core 101 Was it isn't about helping children!!! CLEAR indicator was when it first came to each state-their governors signed away their state's standards before the draft of Common Core was published. It was touted then as what's best for children!!!
What's really best for children is to let parents get their rights back. We The People are now awake and a Tsunami of Informed Parents (with Gods help) will be changing the D.C. landscape soon.
Here's article from again the same ploy--use Governors, --control from early childhood to workforce!
Here's the announcement and link to bill:
WASHINGTON, D.C. | November 30, 2015 - Today bipartisan leaders on the House Committee on Education and the Workforce and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions released the final legislative text for improving K-12 education and replacing No Child Left Behind. The final bill is being released after legislative proposals passed separately by the House and Senate in July and embodies the reforms agreed to by members serving on a joint conference committee earlier this month.
