Common Core and Catholic Schools Week #stopcommoncore #commoncore

Stop Common Core Illinois

Catholic Online –

by Rev. Peter M. J. Stravinskas, Ph.D., S.T.D. is the Executive Director of the Catholic Education Foundation.

PINE BEACH, N.J. (Catholic Online) – I pen these thoughts in the lead-up to Catholic Schools Week 2014, whose theme this year is: “Catholic Schools: Faith, Knowledge, Service.”
As you might suspect, the Catholic Education Foundation has been very involved in the national conversation on the Common Core Initiative.  Kindly allow this editorial to bring you up to speed on the topic from both the purely secular point of view, as well as from the specifically Catholic angle.
I want to begin by making what should be a self-evident assertion: Catholic educators are not adverse to high standards and academic accountability.  Indeed, we have been the perennial bearers of both throughout this very dark period of American education, now spanning more than fifty years.  As a Mormon teacher…

New York: Parents Launch Common Core Math Homework At Governor – @NYGovCuomo #CommonCore

Stop Common Core Illinois

What is Common Core –

New York parents  are launching their children’s Common Core math homework  – AT Governor Cuomo.

Mark Ferreris, a leader in Stop Common Core in New York State, came up with the idea of sending the children’s homework to the Governor.

Current EVEntS – Valerie Jarrett To Validate Another Polarizing Pouch of D.C. Poop

It's the Women, Not the Men!

Ms. Jarrett was born in Iran, her parents are black, her great-grandfather was Jewish, she speaks fluent Farsi, she is a committed leftist, dates Muslim Ahmad Rashad and is Obama’s senior adviser. Gee, what a surprise.

Female, black,  Jewish, liberal and dates Muslims. Any one of those individual traits would define a typical Obama’ appointee, but with Ms. Jarrett, Obama has found his perfect appointee, as she rolls them all into one.

Valerie Jarrett’s title is Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs. Quite an amorphous mouthful. So, what exactly does she do? Well, depending on how you look at it – everything or nothing. Jarrett has an “all-access” pass which gives  her the authority to show up at ANY governmental agency meeting, including the highly restricted National Security Council meetings. She routinely shows up at meetings about the economy, the budget or any other congressional, military or committee…
