Have you heard about Common Core?

The first time a friend mentioned the Common Core to me I thought to myself that’s too bad and went about my business, oblivious to how Common Core was going to affect my family in the years to follow…

…Lattice homework 101. My oldest son struggled with it for quite sometime and I didn’t know how to help him. Instead of having family time after school we were pouring over school work until bedtime. It wasn’t until my husband stepped in and taught my son how to multiply double digits the “old fashioned” way- that he then understood.

Since then I’ve heard more people talking about the Common Core. This time my ears perked up. Tell me what it is again? I listened and then I went to Common Core’s website and read about it myself. I became increasingly alarmed. As I researched the depths of this Core, the first thing that came to me as a parallel was a book I’d read by Andy Andrews titled “How do you kill 11 Million people” where Hitler lured people to their death by smooth talk and lies.

And here with the truth that I’ve discovered I was horrified by this thought… are we unknowingly leading our children into a trap? It may or may not lead to a tragic end, but are we believing lies about the standards that are being taught to our children?

Whether you are a parent of not, I encourage you to educate yourself about the Common Core.

Ask questions. Seek the truth. Take a stand.
