Get Mad At Bill Ayers Who Is Hoping You Won't Notice He's Building Antifa Right In Your Schools (What Else Would You Expect A Supposed Former Terrorist To Do?)
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
When Betty Peters, former member of Alabama State Board of Education, told us of the Common Core State Standards Initiative-- she literally had to shake some of us to understand what she was trying to say. She was shocked that she was being asked to accept something that she has not even seen in place of our Alabama State Standards. We were in the middle of national rankings, really shooting upwards and even states like Massachusetts wanted to see our Reading Initiative that was having excellent results and lowering the achievement gap. We even had an elementary school (George Hall in Mobile) that was predominantly made up of Black students, that won a Dispelling the Myth Award. It was a national award as they were doing excellent work in academics and narrowed the achievement gap. But, after Common Core State Standards Initiative that school plunged to the bottom in Alabama. Of course, many in the Ed bureaucracy thinks since grades are going up that we are doing better (we know it's a gimmick as facts show kids can't even give change..sad). Well let's name a few of the people you can thank along with the increase in thuggery that you are seeing across the country. Here's a few articles to read but you can find so much more.
When we first fought the Common Core State Standards Initiative, a mental health counselor (30 yr veteran in mental health field) looked at the books and said "You remember the Arab Spring? These are the children it's going to raise-- kids that are easily triggered, easily manipulated.

Here's something for you to look at the timeline of changes in made in Alabama education--this is from Mike Parson's (SAVE) Save Alabama Values in Education. Please download and share with your friends discuss during Thanksgiving and Christmas along with the download about the need to Vote NO on March 3, 2020 vote on Constitutional Amendment 1.

SAVE ALABAMA’S VALUES AND EDUCATION
In 2011 Alabama Department of Education (ALDOE) highlighted it was overall 25th in the national education standing according Education Week Magazine.
In 2012, in exchange for No Child Left Behind waivers from the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE), ALDOE was REQUIRED to: 1. transition to CCRS, 2. develop and administer Assessments, 3. develop and implement guidelines tied to the Assessments for local teachers and principal evaluations, and 4. develop and implement a State-based system of differentiated recognition.
In 2012/13 ALDOE implemented Math/ ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS)/assessments. ALDOE was allowed to add up to 15% additional state specific standards and renamed them Alabama College and Career Ready Standards
Note 1: The Math & ELA CCSS were also used extensively in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical documents.
Note 2. Various concerns: never vetted, mental issues, national standards
Note 3. Who was really in charge of selecting the curriculum local or state?
Note 4. Standardized lesson plans aligned with the standards
Note 5. In 2013 the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) was removed. This exam was the backbone of maintaining integrity and the credibility of the Alabama High School Diploma. I believe this was done to ensure the appearance of a successful transition of the education system.
Note 6: In 2015, ALDOE changed the approach to discipline: “Implement a Positive Behavior Support or other related student and school culture program to support the student ownership of their actions that includes alternatives to traditional disciplinary sanctions.”
Note 7. Data is collected from the assessments. How is the data used? Please continue reading.
Comprehensive Counseling and State Model for Alabama Public Schools (Counseling Plan), the glue that brings it all together, accomplishes two goals:
#1 Goal: Socialism
Counselors used the data to place students on a career pathway in grade 8. The following are quotes from the Counseling Plan which demonstrate State/Federal control/influence over student career pathways:
- “Counselors for Grades 8-12 must guide students in the development and
Annual revision of a four-year educational/career plan” pg. 1
- “Ensures that each grade 8-12 counselor guides students in the development
and annual revision of a high school four-year educational plan” pg. 22
- “Ensures that each counselor demonstrates accurate and appropriate
interpretation of assessment data” pg. 22
-“Ensures that each counselor provides equal access and appropriate placement
for all students by utilizing test data and” pg. 22
#2 Goal: Indoctrination
The following are examples of competencies (values/beliefs) that are introduced to students during a grade-cluster timeframe and reinforced through the 12th grade:
Competency (Indoctrination) Grade-cluster.
Type of competency which impacts parental religious beliefs
“Respect alternative points of view” 3-5 pg. 19
Types of competencies used to program students into complying with counselor’s Placement
“understand that work is an important and satisfying means K-2 pg. 18
of personal expression”
“use assessment results in educational planning” 6-8 pg. 16
For the last five years we have had a declining student population in public schools. We are bouncing all around last place in national educational standing according to National Assessment of Education Progress (see attachment). By 2017, we were 45th in the nation.
Bottom Line: CCSS + ASSESSMENTS = DATA to place students on pathway and Competencies are used to indoctrinate children at an early age so they conform to the processes.
