A stop sign that says STOP CSCOPE sign.“Homeschool, Private, Public School Students & National Database”

by Donna Garner

4.15.13

 I hate to say that I told you so, but “I told you so.”  (Please go to the World Net Daily link from 4.13.13 posted at the end of this e-mail – “Homeschoolers and private school students alarmed at plans to track all students.”) 

 

 I began warning the country about the federal takeover by the Obama administration of the public schools way back on12.11.09 — “Children and the Future of Our Country” – by Donna Garner —http://www.educationnews.org/blogs/7704.html

 

Naturally, I was vilified and accused of being a conspiracy theorist.  Over and over again, I explained that the Common Core Standards/Race to the Top would produce:

National standards  →  national tests  →  national curriculum → teachers’ salaries tied to students’ test scores  →  teachers teaching to the test each and every day  →  national indoctrination of our public school children  →  national database

 

Soon other alert Americans began to see the approaching “train wreck,” and experts far more articulate than I started speaking out.  Here is an Anti-Common Core Standards resource list that contains some of the most outstanding ones:  

LIST OF ANTI-COMMON CORE STANDARDS RESOURCES – COMPILED FROM 12.11.09 THROUGH 4.14.13

Then on 2.24.11, Henry W. Burke and I wrote a comprehensive report with documentation that explained in detail exactly how the Obama administration was nationalizing our public schools “Lets Get Off the National Standards Train” by Henry W. Burke and Donna Garner –http://alinahan.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/lets-get-off-the-national-standards-train-2/ . 

 

We who saw what was coming were not crazy then, and we certainly are not crazy now. The only difference is that now that it is almost too late, people all over the country are beginning to wake up and realize the eminent danger that is almost upon our children and the future of our nation.

 

ACTION STEPS:

#1:  We have begged Congressmen to shut down the funding for Common Core Standards Initiative/Race to the Top. So far, they have been totally aloof, ignoring the obvious.  Please help us get their attention.  It will take thousands and thousands of American citizens contacting their Congressmen to get them to take action. 

#2:  Also, please sign any and all petitions that take a position against the Common Core Standards/Race to the Top.  There is strength in numbers of people:

#4:  Learn more about the tremendous financial cost to state taxpayers the Common Core Standards will put upon your state.  Sometimes appealing to people’s economic concerns will get their attention:  “States’ Taxpayers Cannot Afford Common Core Standards” by Henry W. Burke, 10.15.12 —http://educationviews.org/states-taxpayers-cannot-afford-common-core-standards/

    Your justification for connecting CSCOPE to the Common Core standards is wrong. Project Share is a TEA resource that is hosted by Epsilen. Here is the link to the press release from TEA explaining the partnership:
    http://www.tea.state.tx.us/WorkArea/DownloadAsset.aspx?id=7059

    Epsilen is a national company that hosts other projects, too, and given that the vast majority of states have adopted the Common Core standards, Epsilen is working with them.

    CSCOPE and superintendents are not lying when they say CSCOPE is not affiliated with Common Core. CSCOPE Instructional Focus Documents and Exemplar Lessons contain links to state resources, one of which is Project Share. All of the resources on Project Share Texas are aligned to the TEKS, not to Common Core standards.

  2. I am horrified and beyond shocked this is going on in Texas!! I sincerely had NO idea about this, and as a grandmother whose grandchildren are in public school here in Texas, I will start fighting this here!! I am shocked that Rick Perry and our state officials are NOT fighting this being implemented here in Texas schools!! what is REALLY going on, and WHY are they being silent about this!! Perry who is always so anti-Obama anything(or big government anything), WHY is he NOT fighting this, and all of a sudden totally quite about this?? WHY IS IT ALL BEING DONE IN SECRET NOW? HUMMMM
