More pressure is mounting locally on national curriculum guidelines known as “Common Core.”
710 KNUS is airing senate testimony given by a mother, Sarah Coburn, with students in the Adams 12 school district. Coburn reads from a book, “The Bluest Eye,” which she says is included in the suggested reading list from Common Core guides.
Below is the second hour of the Dan Caplis Show on 710 KNUS. Coburn’s interview with Caplis begins at 6:25, and the recording of her testimony can be heard starting at the 14:30 mark (with a small introduction of the audio). Warning: The recorded testimony from Coburn includes adult language of a frank sexual nature.
Last week, the Colorado Senate rejected a bill that aimed to slow the implementation of Common Core on a party line vote.
Audio is a little long, and at the 14:30 you'll hear the woman's testimony, it worth listening too.
Some reviews about the book on Amazon.
It's amazing to me that we have so called "conservatives" such as Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee supporting Common Core! Ney York and other states are rejecting Common Core! All sounds very sick to me.
I can only suggest that these two guys don't understand the content of common core past the idea that it is a national standard (which they assume to be a good thing). The devil lives in the details.
They better get themselves informed if they don't!
Interesting, Gris. Tweeting this one out!
A group of teachers in my area is advocating that third and eighth grade students opt out of the March testing mandated by Common Core. One of those teachers did a brief talk at a local meeting tonight. She said that government is data-mining from these kids, and it is set up to go on for 20 years! This data may be merged with other data, such as conceal carry licenses, family issues, medical issues, and finances.
She suggested the parents contact the school superintendent, inform him that your their child is opting out of Common Core testing, and ask two questions: the first is, what arrangements are made for students who opt out, and second, will my child suffer any ramifications (such as being cut from various extra curricular programs) as a result. She also stressed that the student must not sign or put his name on the test ~ that launches the data mining!
