The Common Core Standards are dangerous. Jane Robbins of the American Principles Project is featured in this awesome video series called “Stop The Common Core.” Embedded below is the first of five videos on the subject. You owe it to yourself, your kids, and your grandkids to watch all five of them:
I know the video doesn’t fit perfectly in my WordPress template so click full screen and listen without distraction. You need to hear what Jane has to say. There are five videos and they should play one right after another. If the link doesn’t work, please visit the American Principles Project or Truth In American Education website and watch them there.
I used to work for the American Principles Project and my friend Shane still does. They are doing great work calling out those who would disenfranchise States and (more importantly) parents and are doing a good job calling on teachers, parents, and other citizens to stop and think about how truly dangerous this movement is. Let me know what you think. It’s not too late to turn back this dangerous agenda and your sharing of this video, your willingness to talk about it to friends and family, and the sharing of these videos on social media and other websites will go a long way!
I don’t need unelected bureaucrats and D.C. based nonprofits determining my child’s education standards and curricula. I don’t want my child’s quality of education determined by the prevailing national political winds and at a level of government inaccessible to parents and local schools boards, administrators, and teachers.
Watch the videos. Share them. Act.
