Common Core Funds The Muslim Brotherhood
Last Evening on our FB page, we posted an article about Pearson, the company that has the contract for the KPREP testing in grades 3-8 in KY, and their connection to terrorist organizations.
Carrie Cox, a friend of KACC, wrote an article this morning in ANM News showing more connections between Pearson Education and terrorist organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood http://anmnews.com/common–
Carrie also points out that on the first page of Pearson’s website www.pearson.com, it shows a Muslim woman in a hijab looking at a computer with the heading “21 Century Education”. We hope that when you read the article, you will be as upset as those of us at KACC. Our children are being educated and tested by those with known ties to terrorist organizations and it’s a bitter pill to swallow.
We asked everyone last evening to call your school superintendent and your legislator and tell them that your child will not take a test from a terrorist organization. We would like to take it one step further.
We want everyone to call Senate Education Committee Chairman Mike Wilson at 1-502-564-8100 x 717 and House Education Chairman Derrick Graham at 1-502-223-1769 and tell them that if we don’t get a bill to preclude the KY Dept. of Education from contracting with entities that have known ties to extreme organizations, our only choice then is to have our children OPT OUT of the KPREP test.
We are not telling anyone what to do, but opting out of testing maybe the only way to “stir the pot”, so to speak. We get calls and emails daily about children coming home crying about the testing and the pressure to score high.
Remember money is involved in the testing. If your child opts out, the school and others get a zero for the score. That translates to no federal or other organizations monies. They probably will try to go after you and your child with many different threats. If you read this article there is a line in the second last paragraph that states. The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that parents possess the “fundamental right” to “direct the upbringing and education of their children. They can not take that away from you.
Best of luck. We all must do our part to end this nonsense. We will have other ideas as the year goes by. Let us know how your phone conversations went by emailing us at kentuckiansagainstcommoncore@
