It’s a “Would You Believe It” Wednesday for those of us fighting Common Core and the CCSS Machine (meaning all those groups/programs/resources, etc. which are also Common Core regardless of the name). I do hope all this week, you’ve been finding the recap theme to be helpful. Today’s is going to be devoted to 3 of the most visited 2015 articles which have really surprised folks.
Note: the jpeg picture you see above is one a fellow anti CCSS warrior created that I’ve shared before. It captures the essence of what many of us feel about CCSS. It’s been one of the top commented on pictures I’ve featured.
January 2015 started you off with this top viewed article:
Showing you, the ICAP (Individual Career and Academic Plan), how its’s connected to IEP (Individual Educational Plan), the Council of Chief State School Officers and so many other parts of the Core. Be sure to read not only the article, but the comments that were posted following the article.
In February of this year:
I shared the research, links, and related information with you about ‘career readiness’ in other countries and how it is being used in America. If you aren’t familiar with CCR (college and career readiness), it’s another part of Common Core that’s been given a new name so it appears to be un-related to CCSS. However, when you look beneath the surface, you quickly find AIR (American Institute of Research), The Clinton Global Initiative, and many others.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I shared with you:
This article details the plan for global Common Core (or Common Core-like) education through the year 2030.
It ties the UN, UNESCO, the Gates Foundation, and others together. Not too surprising if you’ve fought the CCSS Machine for awhile, but if you’re new to the battle, this is a vital piece.
Yes, there are many other ‘Would You Believe It ‘posts, however, I’m keeping this brief for you today. Why? I’m inviting you to listen in to my guest appearance on the Women on the Wall national conference call. The WYBI-worthy topic is the Higher Education Act and how the upcoming re-authorization plays directly into the plans of the CCSS Machine. I’ve been able to comb through 3 related documents, as well as the actual legislation to find the connecting dots. To access the call (which will be archived), call 302-202-1110. Use the access code: 702165. The call is free. It begins at 9:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time (that’s 8:3o PM for Central Daylight Time; 7:30 PM for Mountain Daylight Time, and 6:30 PM for Pacific Daylight Time). I truly hope you’ll be listening in,as what I have to share is vital to our students, our citizens, and our country’s freedoms. When you listen, you’ll see how these Top WYBI articles relate to what’s in store for our nation.
