Common Core: America You Are In Terrible Trouble

Common Core: America You Are In Terrible Trouble

Tonight I am writing about ways to improve this nation’s education of our children and youth. I have been researching this area that I have not thought much about for many years.

Now, having focused my reading in this area, I am stunned and appalled at the massive incursions that the Federal Government has made into what, according to Constitutional Law, is supposed to be the exclusive province of States, communities and parents.

Governors generally appoint State Education Boards and communities generally elect their local Boards of Education. You may think that the community Boards of Education have a great say in the curricula and other workings of local schools, but they do not. They must follow the mandates of the appointed State Boards.

The Federal Government has made millions of dollars of available to States that adopt the Federal universal Common Core curriculum, testing, and  an exhaustive data collection system which gathers very personal information about students and their families. These data are then funneled to the Federal Government to use as it sees fit.

In the light of recent Federal NSA and IRS abuses of citizens, this is a prelude to unimaginable control and persecution of American citizens.

The Common Core curriculum is educationally regressive, even by today’s shameful standards. Common Core’s mandated goals are specifically designed to accommodate the market place and its mandated teaching methods are often unwieldy and, in some cases,  they are frankly bizarre.

The Federal Government is fearfully well-advanced in terminating State,  local and parental sovereignty in the matter of educating their own children. Furthermore, through cash awards (or threatened penalties) the Federal Government is imposing draconian Common Core data collection mandates and forcing States to help usurp parent’s and families 1st Amendment rights to privacy.

On the  matter of progressive and tyrannical Federal advancements into our educational system, I have personally been asleep in the wheelhouse, and so have most Americans.

I regret to admit that I am deeply shaken at our American Constitutional Republic’s debilitated and near-death condition. Perhaps the most successful way to peacefully destroy any socioculture is to gain control of its children.

I implore you to educate yourselves about the Federalized control of America’s educational systems though the imposition of Common Core on all of our children.

For most, our remedial self-study about the imposition of Federalized uniform education on America will take some time and effort. But this work, along with very powerful political resistance to Common Core, is essential to the survival of our way of life.

    Usurpation of states rights have accelerated at an alrming rate since the 1960’s.Though not knew ,in so far as the federal government slowly methodically gaining more control,lessening state rights since the Civil War,the trend is an abomination of our Bill of Rights.This is just another segment of our society belonging to the states that have incurred the intrusion of the fedsThere is plenty of evidence that the demise of our Constitutional Republic isn’t along party lines,all share the blame that now reside in our congress.In our 200 plus history we are witnessing the worst congress ever joined.They have been successful in fracturing,splintering the people of this great country that would now take divine intervention to correct.Keep up the excellent research Moe,I dare say what ever future endeavor you wish to undertake you’ll find the same results-Huck.

      Huck, I regret that I am unable to argue with you on this matter. I am listening to an excellent audio book on the life of Thomas Jefferson, in which the press of the Federal Government to dominate States Rights is well documented in his time. The progressive dominance of centralized power over all American citizens is a fact and it has now reached a tipping point of acceptance or rebellion (hopefully rebellion at the ballot box and not in the streets). God Forbid acceptance. Moe

      I appreciate your visiting my blogs. Thanks so much for the reference. It is now on my Kindle and I will start to read it this weekend. This is the second reading suggestion you have given me. If it is as good as the first, I will greatly benefit from it.

      Best Wishes, Tom
