Concern(Ed) Parents Protecting
Dreams of their children.
We are NOT misinformed.
We know what the (CCSSI)Common Core State Standard Initiative is and we REJECT it!
This Initiative of reforms includes untested standards, privacy issues created through data mining, unconstitutional mandates for adherence to a national curriculum and a standardized test (PARCC).
All are in direct violation of the rights of parents in the State of Louisiana. According to the Louisiana Children's Code Preamble: "Parents have the paramount right to raise their children in accordance with their own values and traditions; that parents should make the decisions regarding the educational, moral, ethical, and religioustraining of the child."
We will NOT SUPPORT any

citizen of Louisiana and VOTER.
Stop Common Core in Louisiana
CCSI was written by inexperienced people with no credentials and it is a rewriting of other failed programs such as outcome based education. It was hoisted onto states through "bribery" with Race to the Top taxpayer dollars. It is an attempt to frustrate children so much, they cannot possibly learn.
A question on CC homework for an 8 year old: Solve the following problem using the vertical written algorithm, your place value chart and number disks. Bundle a ten or hundred when necessary. Show your work. 42+79
Why not just say 42+79=? instead of scaring the poor child and parent with all the algorithm, chart, number disk nonsense that you must include to get the answer correct?!!! Do NOT give away our state sovereignty by caving to receive federal dollars. Insist the Feds give us our taxpayer dollars with no strings attached and let us decide what we will teach our children locally and with parental involvement! Children belong to their parents, NOT the government!!
Education is about creating free minds not manning the workforce.
