"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

Common Core State Standards Explained.

Just one reason to oppose federally funded standards that are REALLY not "state led"
The American Principles Project, Concerned Women for America of Georgia and stopcommoncore.com have prepared a five part youtube series about the Common Core State Standards.  Attorney Jane Robbins provides historical information about the standards, how they are not "state led" and how they will lead to a nationalized curriculum.  
Share this video series with your local school board and elected officials.  Since we are all "common", what Ms. Robbins says about CCSS in Georgia probably is true in your state as well.

  1. John A. Stormer's book, "None Dare Call it Education," published in 1998, by Liberty Bell Press, should be required reading for every student, teacher, administrator, and board member. This book told why our schools are failing and what should be done about it, to help our children. Schools haven't gotten any better since that time.
