Help Stop Common Core in Arizona-New Website Presents Truth about Common CoreSubmitted by johnjen on Sat, 02/23/2013 - 10:32
Hello DP members in Arizona and everywhere else--but specifically Arizona!
This is an announcement of a new informational website which will give you real information about the insidious program called "Common Core," which Arizona (and 48 other states) stupidly "adopted" in 2010.
What is "Common Core" you ask?
Common Core is "No Child Left Behind" on steroids. Common Core is "Race to the Top" on two steroids. Common Core is nothing less than the complete and total nationalization of our school systems--incorporating inferior "standards" which will continue the dumbing-down of our children, a state "longitudinal database" keeping tabs on our children's grades and other personal info, and national standardized testing (replacing the AIMS test with something worse--PARCC and SBAC).
Your esteemed governor (sarcasm) along with superintendent of public instruction seem to think it's just fine and dandy to continue to take money from the Feds to implement such 'great programs' ... because it's "for the children" and will make them "more college ready." Oh, and it's tied directly to Agenda 21.
Here's a new website which has tons of information compiled about Common Core in Arizona so that you can know the truth.
If you are a parent in Arizona you WILL be affected by this--in multiple ways even if you haven't been already.
For people outside Arizona this website will still be very useful to you. If you are a parent anywhere and you don't know what "Common Core" is, you'd better do some research so that you can join the fight to stop it!
