A growing number of state governors are realizing that they were duped, hoodwinked, conned or whatever you want to call it, by socialist educators into approving and implementing the Common Core Standards. In 2009, the National Governor’s Association (NGA) authorized a group of supposed educators to work together to establish a set of educational standards that could be used in schools across the nation.
In 2010, the Common Core Standards were established and approved by the NGA and the majority of states signed on and began implementing the national standards. The governors trusted the people they tasked with creating the Common Core and what those people reported back to the governors.
Once some teachers and many parents started to learn just what those trusted individuals had built into the Common Core Standards. Socialism, anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-Judaism propaganda was woven through the new curriculum. It also promotes homosexuality, pornography, rape, incest, pedophilia and Islam.
Maine Governor Paul LePage admitted having second thoughts about his state’s implementation of the Common Core Standards. Indiana Governor Mike Pence went even further and helped lead a movement that ousted Common Core from the Hoosier State. The Williamson County School Board in Tennessee also moved to eliminate the dangerous teachings contained in the Common Core Standards.
Arizona is about to join the ranks of states to wise up to the harmful brainwashing program known as Common Core. Last week, the Arizona House of Representatives passed HB2190 by a 34-23 vote. The measure establishes a program to repeal and replace Common Core Standards and to return control of education over to state and local governments and school districts.
Brad McQueen, a public school teacher in Tucson and former Common Core insider is now very outspoken about the dangers of Common Core. He explains what Arizona’s HB2190 does:
“HB2190 is a comprehensive bill that seeks to remove all facets of the Common Core from Arizona including the federal learning standards, the data suctioning systems, and the assessments and returns control over education back to the state and local level.”
“The bill removes the Common Core standards and returns to Arizona’s previous standards for two years while an independent committee of parents and educators who are accountable to the legislature reworks the state’s learning standards.”
“The State Board of Education must also hold hearings in every legislative district in the state to gather input from all stakeholders whenever the learning standards are changed. The Common Core standards were adopted by most State Boards of Education around the country without hearings or input from parents or educators in 2010.”
“The bill has multiple layers of protection regarding sharing student data and continually reaffirms the rights of parents to control who sees their children’s data. HB2190 also forbids the state from joining any testing consortium that would require ceding of control over Arizona’s statewide test.”
Socialists nationwide have already launched their campaign to scare Arizona politicians and parents into keeping their comrade producing curriculum. They have taken to radio, newspapers, television and other forms of media, all being paid for by a number of organizations that have strong socialist ties.
Not receiving as much attention as HB2190 is HB 2246 protects parents’ right to opt their kids out of state testing. This bill also passed the Arizona House and both bills are on the way to the Senate. Hopefully the Republican controlled Arizona Senate will have the integrity to stand up for the rights of Arizona parents and students and pass both bills and send them to the governor’s desk to be signed and put into law.
