Your Children, Obama and the UN
Antoine is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Tuesday, April 14, 2015. Our dear friend, Ant Antoine, is at the breakfast table this morning. He comes bearing delicious, warm and flaky croissants and gallons of cafe au laits. He has asked for the pleasure of your company this morning. Antoine has never been a fan of the Common Core initiative which seeks to establish national standards for education. The standards established by Common Core are often much lower than those already implemented in many schools. The end result will be the dumbing down of America's children. President Obama and Bill Gates are behind the movement every step of the way. The Obama administration is trying to nationalize education. This is just another step in the quest for government control of our children, our lives, our choices and our future. Please join us for breakfast so that we may discuss this further. I am anxiously awaiting your arrival.
Thank you all for joining me this morning. When it comes to Common Core, some people are rolling up their sleeves and fighting back. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is one of those fighters. The Governor wants to stop the nationalization of education and his efforts are strongly supported by parents, teachers, student and taxpayers. The more information parents and teachers gather about Common Core, the more is the push to disband it. Those who have examined its goals find Common Core to be severely lacking in quality. The end result will, no doubt, be the dumbing down of America's students across the board. In March, Indiana became the first state to get rid of the curriculum. Oklahoma and South Carolina followed suit. As awareness of Common Core increases, so does the desire to opt out of the program.
Tests, Tests, Tests
Common Core has testing at the heart of the program. There is a whole lot of testing going on, but not much teaching. The federally funded national testing program known as "Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers" is the focus of entirely too many school days. First the students have to learn how to use the computers in order to take the tests. Then they spend several days taking the PARCC's only to re-take the exact same tests a few weeks later. Reading, writing and arithmetic fall by the wayside during this time and students and educators are not liking any of it.
It's the Money, Honey
It always comes down to funding. States and districts that choose not to follow the national standards are penalized monetarily. In many cases, the standards were adopted because of promised money coming from the federal government. This is big, bad government at its worst. The last thing this nation needs is the federal government running the education complex. That job is properly left to the states, local school districts, educators and parents. The program is now being referred to as "ObamaCore." The end result won't be any more promising than is Obamacare. Parents and teachers are sick of the federal government's meddling in their lives and they are going to have to unite and stand up to the government's intrusive arm. They are also going to have to reject the government's bribes in the form of funding. Let's hope they are committed to the task.
The United Nations Weighs In
If things weren't bad enough, the UN is behind a Common Core style global education scheme. This august body of dictators are determined to change the values of humanity as part of its "Education for All" initiative. The Obama administration is totally on board with this effort. I am quite sure that none of you are surprised. Not surprisingly, the UN is seeking $22 billion per year in taxpayer funding to meet their lofty goal. The fact that the UN has a very different view of what educational goals should be does not bother President Obama. The UN's agenda seeks to change (there is that word again") attitudes, values and behaviors." They are seeking to build a sustainable new world and your money and cooperation are needed to achieve this global vision. President Obama and his Education Secretary Arne Duncan are squarely behind the effort. Duncan happily referred to UNESCO as a global partner in the quest to shape young minds. There has been talk lately about the Obama administration's gathering of information about school children. This is all part of the global effort to equalize the world. The Nazi's understood that if you want to control the world, you start with the children. Please stay on top of this and fight like crazy to stop this ugly mission. These are your children. They belong to you. They do not belong to Obama or the UN.
Let's go children of America
The day of reckoning has arrived
Against you tyranny's ugly flag is raised.
