Subjecting Your Children to Common Core Could Be Child Abuse

At the October County Board Meeting the county school board approved a plan submitted by Nevada County Superintendent of Schools Holly Hermansen to hire a Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Common Core Teacher Experts, a School Safety Coordinator and a Behavior Specialist, with some Local Control Funding. 

These positions are all intended to provide a greater level of county office support to all of our schools in Nevada County wrote Holly Hermansen in a letter defending her position. 

All across the nation parents are rising up to challenge the implementation of Common Core, which is my estimations is filled with bad science, fake history and total disregard for the factors that made this county great. Is it liberal indoctrination aimed at creating another generations of low information voters or Democrats. 

In New York, the first state to implement the Common Core, parents of all political stripes are protesting against standards that parents and teachers say have been set far beyond students’ abilities.  The new Common Core school standards have resulted in a 30% drop in student test scores in New York state-wide.  Dumb students or poor teaching methods? 

Why do Nevada County schools need the advice of a common core teaching expert?   If teachers toe the liberal line and do not asked unapproved questions and every thing will be just fine. Why do teachers need the advice of a behavior specialist?  To help them answer the students questions as to “why am I do this crap?” Or, is the behavioral specialist for the teachers, to help them over come their distaste for Common Core?   The school safety coordinator must be to help repel the angry parents who are dealing with increasing home work assignments, incomprehensible math assignments, and reading matter devoid of fiction,  focusing instead on non-fiction liberal propaganda, promoting a progressive agenda.

If you are not paying attentions on what is going on in your children schools you should be. When your children grow up,  and they cannot get into a good university or find a well paying job, they may sue you for child abuse for allowing them to be subjected to Common Core.

    I was already a victim of the progressive education ideas. In the 1950’s they pushed the idea of word recognition reading instead of phonics. It hurt me more than the average person because in the 4th grade I was switched to a school where phonics was taught. With word recognition I should have still been learning reading but in the new school reading classes were done but spelling was still taught. As the result, I couldn’t read or spell and only learned to read because I spent my lunch hour in 5th and 6th grade in the library teaching myself how to read.
    I can now read but do from time to time stumble over words and spelling because I didn’t know about phonics till much latter in life.
    Something the Progressives don’t understand is that people have different ways of learning. Some people are able to learn by understanding the theory of how something works (me). Other can just pack the facts away in their head and other learn best hands on and may be better off with a trade school environment than a book environment.
    Now the progressives are not just limiting their action to reading but are instead taking on the whole education process. I feel very sorry for the next generation of children who will go through what I when trough and like me will think they must be dumb for not understanding the world because of a faulty education.
    A book has been published on the subject but it is also online and can be found here
    If you poke around chapter 3 you will learn more. I haven’t got into the book yet because I have a paper copy ordered that should get here tomorrow.

    No common core here.

      Looked over their reading list and while there are many good books on the list, I do question having one “Mein Kampf – Hitler”. That is a book that I think should only be read after you have a well defined set of values – something that I am not sure many college students have.
