Common Core has been touted as an attempt to standardize education in a manner that provides a mobile populace consistent training throughout the country in public
schools. The reality, though, is that at its best, it is a one-size-fits-all educational model that is imposed throughout the nation. This model of education does
not traditionally work because it neglects the inherent differences in the needs and abilities of students in learning. More troublesome, however, are the imposed
national testing, the psychotropic testing and thought-altering processes built into the derivative curriculum and testing. Indeed, many
teachers report that they have been instructed not to even review what the children are being tested about. Why? What don't they want the teachers to
This is part two of our discussion on Common Core. In this month's meeting, members of the Faithful Christian Servants ministry will answer pointed questions about the
effects of Common Core, both short and long term, on our society as a whole and on individual children. We will also discuss real strategies that can be employed
to defeat it. During this meeting, we will discuss:
- What are the Common Core standards and why do they want Federal educational control?
- Where did Common Core come from - who's behind them?
- Why did the Common Core creaters copyright them so nobody could change them?
- What was the back story behind the deals and compromises made to get it adopted?
- Common Core includes psychological testing of our kids every time they're tested.
Why? Who is mining the data?
Plan to attend this meeting with
your spouse so that you can each gain a clearer understanding of this effort and its impact on your family, homeschooling or not.
Learn just why the standards are flawed, the curriculum is poorly written and incomplete, the testing is intrusive and inappropriate. Understand why just the fact that data
mining is happening represents a subversive and dangerous reality. Invite a friend to come (with their spouse) - they'll be glad you did!
Faithful Christian Servants is a group of Christian parents, grandparents and concerned citizens, who come
from varying backgrounds. The group is made up teachers, business owners, and medical professionals who were brought together by mutual
concerns regarding the educational reform sweeping the nation known as the Common Core State Standards Initiative. As a group, Faithful Christian Servants has
conducted extensive research on the current reform and its implications. Based on the findings, the group felt moved to educate others about the nature and
scope of the changes taking place in our schools
