Expose the Core of Common Core

Posted on: August 05, 2016

Freedom First Society supplies a unique and vital perspective missing from the national “debate” over Common Core.

In our campaign DVD, Getting to the Core of Common Core,  Idaho Chapter Leader Mrs. Julianne Young points out that Common Core is just one recent manifestation of a much bigger agenda that has plagued education for decades. And she insists that the real threat driving Common Core cannot be defeated without addressing the bigger picture. (View on YouTube.)

Unfortunately, “Conservative” leadership addressing Common Core generally adopts the narrow, reactive focus Julianne Young warns against, as though Common Core were an isolated problem.

The nationwide momentum behind Common Core, supported by billions in federal money, has properly alarmed many Americans, even though they see only a small part of the picture.  Our urgency and imperative is to introduce them to the bigger picture, so the entire subversive education agenda and the forces behind it can ultimately be defeated

Excellent candidates for sharing the DVD include: 1) “conservative” members of local school boards; 2) local citizens who have expressed concern over Common Core; 3) home-schooling parents; and 4) parents who have children in government schools.”  Also view and share links to the video on YouTube.

Federal Control No Rose Garden

“Rotten to the Core” (Boston Herald, 2/28/10) FFS: This devastating critique of the Common Core project for national education standards comes surprisingly from the Boston Herald Editorial Staff.  Nevertheless, it misses the key point:  The federal government has no proper role, constitutional or otherwise, in providing funding to education and prescribing...
