Here are two very informative documents.
The first is a PDF (see attached) of the “Common Core Facts” compiled by Sandra Stotsky, Professor Emerita of Education Reform at the University of Arkansas and a member of the Common Core Validation Committee (who declined to sign off on these new standards).
The second is a link to another document that provides a thorough historic timeline of the development of the Common Core State Standards, along with the activities that Bill Gates is financing at the United Nations and it’s connection with Common Core, and Arne Duncan’s statement on advancing the sustainability movement through education as key to our economic/ecological future. (The statement on the front, and on the back, referencing the 2008 Stimulus, should be the 2009 Stimulus).
IMPORTANT: Please check out and attend this educational action event to be shown in more than 650 theaters across the country (at least 11 locations in KY) on July 22nd (rebroadcasted on July 29th), to experience a live national night of action against Common Core. Please go to: www.wewillnotconform.com and plan to attend. Buy tickets and bring your friends. This is a chance for anyone who’s tired of sitting idly by as the federal government continues its takeover of our schools to come together and do something about it.
We’re looking for volunteers at this theater event to have people sign their name and e-mail address in order for them to stay informed and to help support our KY bills for repealing Common Core.
Recently we have added a lot of new names to our e-mail list and please send me names and e-mail addresses of others you know would appreciate receiving updates on what’s happening with the fight against Common Core. Also, feel free to forward this e-mail to your list of friends and associates.
Get involved. Thanks,
