Good News! The Florida Senate has isolated the IT requirements imposed by PARCC and have intelligently deduced the strain it will put on their school budgets and existing technology infrastructure. This is a small, yet significant successful battle in the fight to stop Common Core. We need the multiplication of these types of victories in every county of every state!

Here is the Florida Senatorial document:

Common Core: Nationalized State Run Education (Reprint)

 
 
The following isa reprint of an article from Education News by Dean Kalahar on April 10, 2013 and can be found here: http://educationviews.org/common-core-nationalized-state-run-education/
 
 
Common Core, the new federal education standards, may look delicious; but before you take a bite out of the apple, it might be a good idea to know a razor is inside.
 
 

URGENT URGENT US Dept of Ed Draft Document

OK….when they look at you like you have a tin foil hat on your head……take some of this information with you. It is 126 pages. I have not read through the entire document (YET) but what I have read is enough to blow off the top of your head. I have highlighted some stuff. KIPP (Charter Schools) has a CHARACTER REPORT CARD on Page 39. So for now start on page 39 and work your way through to page 45. Remember FERPA laws were changed last year and I am sure not one parent is aware that permission to share information about our children no longer requires parental consent. Obama just slipped all these new changes in and I don't believe any parents were ever asked their opinions about these changes. And where was our Republican Congress when this happened?
