Yahoo.com: Detroit Public School To SUSPEND KIDS If Parents Miss Common Core Test Meeting
“Teachers at Coleman A. Young Elementary in Detroit, Mich. sent a letter home with children last week threatening the little kids with suspension if their parents do not show up to a parent-teacher meeting. In the letter, the taxpayer-paid teachers described the meeting as compulsory for parents, reports local NBC affiliate WDIV-TV.
“Neither the meeting nor the comments regarding ‘student suspension’ were made out of ill intent, but rather to express the level of importance of students’ progress,” school officials explained, “as they prepare for the upcoming M-STEP test.”
Fox News: 8th Grader Suspended for Informing Classmates of Standardized Test ‘Opt-Out’
“A New Mexico eighth-grader said on “Fox and Friends” she was suspended from school for letting her classmates know that they could opt out of the state’s new online standardized test. 12-year-old Adelina Silva printed out the forms from her own school’s website and was rewarded with a trip to the principal’s office.
The school district released a statement, saying, “Santa Fe Public Schools supports a parent’s right to opt his or her child out of state-mandated standardized testing … no students in the district have been disciplined for supporting or promoting this district policy of a parent’s right to opt their child out of testing.”

NY Times: As Common Core Testing Is Ushered In, Parents and Students Opt Out
“A new wave of standardized exams, designed to assess whether students are learning in step with the Common Core standards, is sweeping the country, arriving this week in classrooms in several states and entering the cross hairs of various political movements. In New Jersey and elsewhere, the arrival has been marked with well-organized opposition, a spate of television attack ads and a cascade of parental anxiety.
Colorado’s Board of Education voted in January to allow school districts to skip portions of the state tests, only to be told by the state’s attorney general that it did not have that authority. At a testing information session for parents in Sparta, N.J., according to a local news report, an assistant superintendent repeatedly said: “I’m not here to fight with you. I am here to give information on the mandate.”
While some superintendents have condoned or at least tolerated the opt-out movement, others have not. William Petrick, for example, schools superintendent in Little Falls, New Jersey, said his district would handle refusals “the way we handle any other disciplinary issue.”

Thousands of parents, grandparents, and those who care about education, have been in the trenches for a long time, fighting the Common Core Corruption Curriculum. We have recently made great strides in waking up a lot of people to the evils of CC. The masterminds of it all, is Bill Gates, and his wife, who believe in eugenics and other forms of evil. Common Core is run by multinational corporate elitists and a government that is too big , too controlling and does not give a rip about our children. Apathy is what brought us to this point in government.… Read more »

This country is long over-due to take a stand against this evilness and tyrrany that’s being forced upon the American people. They are most definitely attempting to make us their mindless, robotic drones to do with as they please. I think Bill Gates is a computer robot himself – I read that his children are not being fed this Common Core gargabe. They are not our masters!

How does it happen that the Fed.Gov. thinks they have the authority to dictate how we educate our kids? The STATES make these decisions,but even THAT is too Big Government. People may not know exactly what they want taught to their kids,but they damned sure better know what they DON’T want. They need to protest Common Core at a County level,at the offices of their School Districts AND at the State levels at the State Department of Education. Start Petitions,tell ’em you,and ALL the OTHER Parents who want a GOOD,wholesome education for their kids,are considering Legal action,since CC is NOT… Read more »

At one time, I was considered a conspiracy theorist. I knew, the same as others, that education had become indoctrination. It is from the university level down to Pre-K. It was long ago established that Bill Gates is accountable to UNESCO. Pearson Publishing is accountable to its shareholders. The shareholders number about 24 power players; such as the Libyan Investment Authority (LIA) and past and present state’s governors (not all, but many). Then there are the everyday educational whores, such as the Boards Of Education, who pimps away our children’s education. Pearson is the dominant educational publisher, which supplies the… Read more »

Acts of civil disobedience create change in unjust systems: Boston Tea Party, Suffrage, Civil Rights, Vietnam War. Today = Parents Rights. And just like all the above movements, we will prevail. It is ingrained in our history and no matter what the governments and districts say, parents will stand against them to preserve our rights and protect our children. I sign your paycheck each time you take money from mine. You work for me. Just remember that, especially when it comes time for me to vote. If you are not representing my voice, you will be out of a job.

Dave: The reason everyone must fight against Common Core, is because the government (if not stopped) will require all “home school” students, to take the yearly required state test, which will be geared to “Common Core Crap”. We are also fighting to have the state’s yearly required test, to be eliminated as a requirement for home school. Sadly, some people have been bought off in private educational institutions; including, Christian schools. Common Core is a cancer growing from our corrupted government and trying to take over every facet in education. The heat is turned up now on all legislators and… Read more »

Common core is a logical follow on to Outcome Based Edukation, designed to bring all down to the lowest common denominator. In one of George Carlin’s rants he said it best, They want a population just smart enough to follow orders and push buttons but not smart enough to ask questions. I was talking with a couple of town cops at a local coffee shop who said they took their kids out of public middle/high school saying the kids are not being taught the basics that we were but indoctrinated into a socialist utopia, classes in diversity, primitive tribal customs… Read more »
