So please help it is not hard and parents and teachers need to fight this to have input over education standards vs being under Washington control Here is a list of resources the enemy do not want you to know and the majority of the mainstream media has kept hidden!!
"Right now, they're really focused on the academic standards. This one is much newer. We have to build understanding of the concept first." He went on: "We're not first up to bat, and I'm not troubled by that. The Common Core movement is right to start on the things where there's already widespread agreement. We're way down the road."
Seriously? A high-ranking administration official is telling us that the common standards being financed by $350 million in Race to the Top funds "start" with academics but will eventually encompass "school climate" standards too? Jennings raises further red flags when he concedes that we have not determined "the definition of school climate," though he says it "does not include air conditioning" but does include kids feeling "emotionally safe." Maybe it's my cynical streak, but that sounds like a summons to social agendas, culture clashes, and political fisticuffs. In other words, the stuff that sinks standards.
Mr. Jennings' remarks raise concerns about the old bait-and-switch. If he is speaking for Secretary Duncan and the President, they seem to have been less than truthful so far when discussing their vision for common standards. If not, a President seeking bipartisan comity might want to encourage Mr. Jennings not to suggest that the Department is covertly planning to drive a massive 48-state effort into a familiar ditch...or to turn it into a Trojan Horse."---
and with Arne Duncan as head of Education who pushed for Chicago to have their first gay high school---how can parents in Alabama afford to be ignorant..

No other bill can give local control but HB254 and SB190 as anything else including HB84 called the Flexibility Act should not be confused to give parents local control and must be passed in this session as 2014 is too late. Read the bills for yourself. Here is link to removing Common Core Bills (HB254 and SB190 and HB84-Flex Act on very end of article). Of outmost priority is to get HB254 to get out of Education Commmittee to be allowed to be voted on. Please call and or email your below legislators and you must contact each Education Comittee members so the bill does not die. Bills to supposedly give local control have been misused see this link so we need to compare first. But First things first--get out of Common Core and then we can work to make other bills to make it better but please put passing HB254 and SB190 a priority today as otherwise parents will no longer have control of their children's education in 2014. Remember legislature ends in May so make this pass now by making your voice heard. Please share.
