Greetings my fellow Warriors against the CCSS Machine. By now you know I am 100% opposed to the Common Core, the Career Technical Education arm of the Common Core, the College and Career Readiness arm of the Common Core, and every OTHER connected entity of the CCSS Machine. Today’s “From the File” Tuesday article is a special visual edition. Why? Congress is back in session..which means votes could come ANYTIME between now and the next break (or, votes could come after the first of the year). Regardless of WHEN the votes happen, the fact is that BOTH the HR5 and the S1177 will be among those bills voted upon!
Since our time is NOW to let our voices be heard, we must use EVERY available means possible. Call the legislators who represent you. Write the legislators who speak for you. Use social media as a tool to send a visual message that speaks to your legislators! Below are suggestions of appropriate visuals you can use (complete with captions). Use what you choose, customize the captions or create memes from them, I really don’t care..just use them to send a message your legislator won’t soon forget about HOW important it is to KILL the HR5 and theS1177!
Here’s one to address the constant assessments:
Here’s one sure to wake up a Congress member. If they value their jobs, they need to know this truth!
Here’s one to show your legislators that ANY human is NOT ‘capital’. CCSS, CTE, and all that’s connected reduce ALL citizens to this debased capacity. We MUST speak up!
Here’s a ‘classic’ of mine. I found these lapel pins on Zazzle. I’ve worn mine to every event I can where education is discussed. Quite effective all by itself.
Below is one of the latest visuals I’ve used to help raise awareness of how vital keeping our students away from the CCSS Machine it is.
Here’s an ‘oldie but goldie’ that’s been on the Internet for quite a while. It’s still very powerful.
Here’a s visual which is used by the pro CCSS side to suggest how much ‘choice’ there is in an aligned educational system.
Below, is an appropriate visual. Why? The U.S. Gov’t created this to show us how great competency based education (that’s stackable and will follow the student wherever they go in life) can be. We can use it to show them our students are MORE than ‘chunks’!
The CCSS Machine disrespects special needs students and teachers 100%!
Regardless of where your student’s K-12 years were spent, with the enacted HR5, S1177, and the upcoming re-authorized HEA (Higher Education Act), ALL students will enter the TSP (Talent Supply Pipeline).
Much evidence has been produced to show exactly how private, faith-based, and home educational choices are ALREADY being aligned to the CCSS Machine. STOP the indoctrination, anti CC Warriors!
Lastly, Anti CC Warriors, let’s let Congress know we DON’T want our communities CCSS/CTE/CCR aligned!
