Common Core – Growing Big Brother in the Classrooms

Michelle Malkin’s article “Who is Tracking our Children” should raise a huge red flag of distress to each and every parent in this country. This is downright invasion of privacy and deliberate abuse of companies against children and parental rights. And a stepping stone to cutting out parental say in education.

Governments spying, lying and conspiring against its citizens seems like a fantastic action movie for Hollywood. But this is no longer Hollywood, nor is it a motion picture. Today, this is real, and it’s even in our schools plaguing our children through many tools.

Technology: Under Common Core Standards certainly comes at a hefty price to privacy and parental rights. With schools coming under severe scrutiny because of RFID chips in ID badges and most recently, iris scans of children without parental consent, we have to ask who is really watching out for the best interest of our children when they are in school. Even the US Dept of Education’s Grit Report from February 2013 has listed sensors that will monitor our children including but most certainly not limited to Facial Expression Cameras, Posture Analysis Seats, Pressure Mouse, and a Wireless Skin Conductance Sensor .

Data mining: What is done with the information, who has access to it, and how long can these companies and/or our government hang onto and use this information against us? One must ask why do we need to collect all these data points, and why from children. One word comes to mind: Control. Someone has decided that in order to “Control” our children, they need to know every single aspect of their lives, their parents’ lives in order to “Control” every piece of every person’s lives. This is not the workings of a free society. Our educational rights as parents are quickly dwindling away with Common Core. If we wish to have any say in our children’s educations, we need to understand Common Core and Data mining and we need to inform all parents, school boards, legislators, and the media of these heinous and criminal acts against our children, us and our nation’s future in the world.

Yes, CCSS is in Minnesota!

 

Your Kids

As that erie famous saying goes….”They’re Heeeerrrrrreee”, so is Common Core, regardless of what some other “official” sites may state. Common Core Language Arts was approved by Pawlenty in 2009 through the stimulus. Minnesota said yes to Common Core English Language Arts , if you have a child that attends a public, private or charter school for that matter and you’re wondering if they’ve implemented Common Core, simply give them a call and ask.

Interestingly enough, they will tell you…only the language arts portion. However, if your child’s school has rolled out STEM, you should know that the makers of STEM have partnered with Common Core to align their curriculum to the new standards and all that goes with it.
More to come!
