For this first Monday of October 2015, I am giving a shout out to anti CCSS warrior moms nationwide. I have a special spot for the Moms and grandmamas throughout NC. I have had the honor of standing with them, helping them, and most importantly, joining them in their disdain for all things connected to the CCSS Machine.Before I share with you what NC fightin’ mamas have done, check out these fightin’ mad moms from other states.
Here’s a quote from my dear friend, Rachel. She lives in NY. She runs a business, manages a huge anti CC group on Facebook, and thinks nothing of being a booming voice against the anti-Americanism going on in the classrooms.
“My hubby tells me that I am angry a lot and my best friend tells me that I am “not the same person I was four years ago”. I told them that Common Core has made me the person I am today. I HATE COMMON CORE and what is being done to our children.
I LOVE OUR NATION AND OUR CHILDREN. So does God. I pray like I do every morning…. “Please God, give us the miracle needed to rid our children of Common Core”, amen.”
If you’d like Rachel’s attitude, check out her group, ‘Choose to Refuse Common Core’ (see: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CHOOSETOREFUSECOMMONCORE/)
If you are new to fighting CCSS, you may not know about one of the first anti CCSS Facebook pages I joined. Called ‘Moms Against Duncan (MAD)’. The 5 leaders of this dedicated group are all fantastic anti CC warriors I trust without a doubt. Together, they are a force like a tidal wave. Here’s a quote by Teri, one of my favorite GA moms, “The front line in the battle to Stop Common Core is in the STATES! Congress, State Legislatures and Parents were by-passed in the hurried adoption process!” Check out the MAD moms and dads. (see: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MomsAgainstDuncan/)
These are just two of the many ‘moms’ groups warring against the Core…
NC Fightin’ Mamas:
My fellow NC moms are quite something. They have been faithful in attending hearings, meetings, and standing up to school officials. They have demanded justice. They have produced evidence of data mining, inappropriate lessons, and been forthright in their disgust of the state leaders who have knowingly embedded every aspect of the CCSS Machine into our preK through 12th; post-secondary, and workforce areas. These moms, many of whom I have met, don’t hesitate to tell it like it is.
However long it is determined for me to be a resident of NC, I will carry on being deliberate in this mission to wagw war against the CCSS Machine.
We know many mamas and grandmamas like our NC moms. If we don’t have Warriors like these, we are doomed. We need MORE moms, mamas, dads, papas; citizens of all kinds! Know a dedicated anti CC person or group? Let me know! It’s always a great day to meet new folks/groups fed up with the illegally based education reform! Let’s all become ‘patriots’ for our students. (fyi: did you know there’s a Facebook group named “Patriots Against Common Core”? See: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AMERICANSAGAINSTCOMMONCORE/)
