What should your response be when you are told that it is a great idea to nationalize our public schools by putting control over our children’s minds into the hands of the federal government?

What should you say when someone (including the Obama administration) tries to convince you that the Common Core Standards Initiative (CCSI) is going to bring world-class standards to the public schools in the 45 states (plus D. C.) that have committed to them?

What action should you take when you look at the following website and find out your local public school intends to apply for the CCSI funding (Race to the Top) that will come directly from the USDOE to the local district?   http://www2.ed.gov/programs/racetothetop-district/detailed-list-of-applicants.pdf

To help the public to navigate through the CCSI “troubled waters,” I have compiled a long list of various noteworthy, fact-based, anti-CCSI articles that have been published since the inception of CCSI by the Obama administration.

At the top of the Anti-CCSI Resource List, I have posted links to two articles in which Mitt Romney verbalized his position against the Common Core Standards Initiative (Education Nation Summit, 9.25.12).

Please make your views known at the ballot box on Nov. 6, 2012, and put pressure on your Congressmen to defund CCSI and Race to the Top – the sooner the better!
