Forum: Uncle Sam intrudes further

Updated: May 25, 2014 3:51PM



The Common Core academic standards are being implemented and will treat every student in the country the same way and at the same pace. It is basically a national curriculum for all K-12 students in all public schools, religious schools, private schools and even for students who are taught at home.

Common Core came into being not through legislation in Congress but was created by individuals who want to have complete federal control of what our children are taught in school.

It would be wise for everyone to learn what Common Core is truly about. Never surrender your rights as parents and your children’s education to the federal government.
