This is a perfect representation of liberals, who see failure after failure right before their very eyes, and somehow continue to ignore it.  It's the most willfull, woeful denial of reality ever.

How about teaching an appreciation of the Constitution and how amendments are actually made!

TODAY: FEDERAL COURT TRIES U.S. DEPT OF ED. FOR DESTRUCTION OF FAMILY PRIVACY/CONSENT   1 comment

Today is big.
The federal district court in Washington, D.C. is hearing arguments today from Khalia Barnes and Marc Rotenburg of the Electronic Privacy Information Center in support of nationwide student privacy, in support of parental consent laws, in support of protective definitions of terms.
So, who on earth is on the opposite team? Who’s actually arguing against student privacy? Drumroll….
THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.
Yes, really.

EPIC to Defend Student Privacy Rights in Federal Court
On July 24, EPIC President Marc Rotenberg and EPIC Administrative Law Counsel Khaliah Barnes will present arguments in federal district court in Washington, DC in support of student privacy. In EPIC v. Dept. of Education, No. 12-327, EPIC is challenging recent changes to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) that allow the release of student records for non-academic purposes and undercut parental consent provisions. In 2011, EPIC submitted extensive comments to the agency opposing the changes. After the Education Department failed to modify the proposed regulation, EPIC filed a lawsuit and argued that the agency exceeded its authority with the changes, and also that the revised regulations are not in accordance with the 1974 privacy law. EPIC is joined in the lawsuit by members of the EPIC Board of Directors Grayson Barber, Pablo Garcia Molina, Peter Neumann, and Deborah Peel. For more information, see EPIC: EPIC v. The U.S. Department of Education and EPIC: Student Privacy.

The big question is, why isn’t this gigantic, unbelievable story being covered by the mainstream media?
It’s not important enough? People don’t really care about the privacy rights of children? Parents don’t really care that their parental consent rights have been undercut by the U.S. Department of Education? It’s no big deal that the U.S. Department of Education redefined terms that include “directory information,” “educational agency,” and “authorized representative,” –loosening and widening each term to make students’ privacy easier to hack?
No big deal?
Shame on the mainstream media for blacking this out in favor of non-news, celebrity scandals and trumped-up racism stories.
Share, share, share.

This story is just that…a story. How about factual evidence to back up the claims against Common Core? People could come to a better decision if you didn’t quote and only use USOE’s info as the whole truth. I say you scrap this article and go back to the drawing board and put the facts down rather than a watered down version that only tells one side. We have enough of the one sided conversations going on from USOE, let’s start sharing the hard facts!

Face Forward is a great cause and Corinna is one of those people that cares deeply about others and who is always looking for a way to make the lives of others, especially those around her better. I hope that people take time to thank the individuals at Face Forward for the great work they do as well as all those who participated at the event last night. It is so nice to see so many people willing to stand up for a good cause.

subject and lesson completely and wildly age inappropriate and boring for little children it is the perfect example of the way these standards will use English Language Arts to indoctrinate.
Under the cover of ELA the supporters who seek to push their own political agenda can have children reading documents about climate change, same sex marriage, and other political firestorms, slowly indoctrinating them to the bias of these pieces.
And to boot, not only are these standards developmentally inappropriate education wise, they are emotionally inappropriate! Many of the lessons in one Common Core suggested ELA book are emotionally manipulative and instruct small kids to learn to use very emotionally charged words like “demand” and “nag.” It encourages kids to disrespect their parents and in doing so, I believe, try to separate them from that parent.
Little children in the first grade will be conditioned and learning all about age inappropriate things. And when do they learn the real stuff? What about the stuff that gets you through just about every aspect of daily life?
Basic grammatical skills will get you more in real life than knowing what components make up a civilization.
