Recently, America's textbooks have sometimes included misinformation such as stating that America was not a republic but a democracy when it is, in fact, a democratic republic.
At least one textbook has stated that one role of our government was to “socialize the young” while the truth is that the family naturally and appropriately fills that role. These are
clearly wrong, but current educational winds threaten to warp the facts in order to impact the next generation. The most obtrusive effort
to rewrite the American experiment is Common Core, which has been sweeping the nation.
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
In this month's meeting, members of the Faithful Christian Servants ministry will introduce and discuss Common Core and how to defeat it. During this meeting, we will discuss:
- What exactly is meant by the term Common Core?
- What is the impact of Common Core on the effectiveness of school training and curriculum?
- How does Common Core affect a homeschooled child?
- How can I stay involved in the effort to have Common Core repealed in California or wherever I live?
- How can we help alert public school counterparts about this initiative and its affect on individual
children and families?
Plan to attend this meeting with
your spouse so that you can each gain a clearer understanding of this movement and its impact on you, homeschooling or not.
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
