It’s time for all believers to hit their knees in prayer and pick up their cell phones and call the number of those on the education committee, led by Rep. Ron Highland. On Friday, that committee will decide the fate of Common Core in Kansas and the future of our children. Public Schools in Kansas don’t need to be put into a cookie press to turn out little worker bees.
We want good solid curriculum put together by Kansans. Common Core is destructive in so many ways.
Have you checked out the way they want you to do math?
It’s time to pray, and call. Activate your prayer lines, and ask the Lord to stop Kansas from Common Core. HB 2292 is a good bill, and endorsed with its strong constitutionality by our own Secretary of State Kris Kobach. You can call your local representative and tell them HB 2292 needs to pass to save Kansas children.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach sent out the attached letter calling for the immediate passing of HB 2292 – the Local Control of Kansas Education bill! He addresses the complete Constitutionality of the bill and recommends it passes out of the Education Committee favorable.
For SOS Kobach to name the bill and call for its favorable passage goes way beyond the Constitutional issue. He effectively takes away all the poor arguments and excuses being passed around by those that have said the bill was poorly written and unconstitutional.
He would not call for passage of a poor bill and he would know because he has written and helped write some of the strongest Constitutional bills in Kansas like the 2nd Amendment Protection Act!
CALL THE MEMBERS OF THE EDUCATION COMMITTEE NOW AND DEMAND THAT THEY PASS HB 2292 the Local Control of Kansas Education Act!
With your help, we can expel Common Core from Kansas schools and ensure our children grow up with an excellent educational system that puts children, teachers, and parents first.
Call these representatives immediately, and tell them it’s critical they support a strong HB 2292 bill now!
Tennessee high school student spoke from personal experience when he gave a highly critical speech onCommon Core at the Knox County School Board meeting earlier this month. (see video below). Ethan Young, a senior at Farragut High School, recited the history of Common Core, beginning in 2009 when the National Governor’s Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, partnered with a nonprofit funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
He said in his recorded speech that while the initiative “seemed to spring from states,” it was developed by educational testing executives and only two academic content specialists, neither of which approved the final standards.
“I mean, how convenient calculating who knows what, and who needs what,” Young said. “I mean why don’t we manufacture robots instead of students?”
A “standards-based education,” Young said, is ruling the way teachers are teaching and students are learning.
“If everything I learned in high school was a measurable objective, I haven’t learned anything,” he said.
“Somewhere our Founding Fathers are turning in their graves, turning and screaming, and trying to say to us, that we teach to free minds.”
Kansans against Common Core are not going away, simply because our legislature passed this law last year.
