EDUCATION REFORM IS THE CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE OF OUR GENERATION

by

Chasidy White
Tuscaloosa, AL

"I absolutely believe that education reform is the Civil Rights issue of our generation.  This is why we cannot compromise in regards to Common Core.  Would Rosa Parks have compromised?  No...she didn't say "ok...I'll give up my seat on the bus on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, if we can compromise on Tuesdays and Thursdays."  
 
When something's not right, it's not right, even if everyone in positions of power tell you it is.  We must stop Common Core because we have to protect our future.  But it takes all of us, working in a massive strategic effort, if we want to stop this.  
 
During the Civil Rights movement, a teacher named JoAnn Robinson is a name most don't recognize.  But her role is legendary.  It was JoAnn who made the hand-made copies to distribute to citizens, advertising the very historic Montgomery bus boycott.  Without JoAnn's door-to-door conversations with everyday citizens, the movement would've never gained momentum to help the nation and the world see what was going on in Alabama.  
 
You are all JoAnn Robinsons.  It's the door-to-door conversations that will help us rise up to stop Common Core.  It will be parents who will lead this movement.  There has never been a more important time for parents and teachers to join together to stop Common Core and corporate education reform.  This is not a party issue, it's about our kids.  All of our kids.  
 
In Alabama, Common Core is paired with Plan 2020, which includes race-based standards.  I don't know how I can look students in the eye and explain race-based standards.  There have been many corporate education reformers try to validate these new accountability standards in Alabama.  Let me be very clear...Race-Based Standards are Race-Based Standards are Race-Based Standards.  We absolutely cannot support this.  Corporate education reformers do not know what is best for OUR kids.  And they are ALL our kids.  
 
We are in the middle of a new Civil Rights movement, and we must join together to

Stop Common Core

 once and for all."

 


Stop the Common Core Standards Initiative (CCSSI).

Stop CCSSI from linking student failure to teacher jobs.

Stop CCSSI from deciding if children will be college or trade bound.

Stop the millions of tax dollars that will be spent by the state to support CCSSI.

Stop the accumulation of private student/family information gathered by schools (public/private/homeschool) for federal data banks.

This is not a left vs right issue.

It is not a Republican vs. Democrat issue.

It is a propoganda vs. truth issue.

 



"If fully enacted, the Common Core of Standards will be the culmination of a process that began in earnest immediately following the Second World War, with the goal of producing a nationwide, attitude-changing curriculum that molds public opinion. A victory for CCS may well finish off the Founders’ “grand experiment” in self-government and self-determination because it would further institutionalize, for the foreseeable future, progressivism’s core philosophy: that socialization (or “teamwork”) is more important than facts or context, and that political correctness rather than accomplishment is the key to success in a Nanny State."

David Coleman on the Common Core

Though the states agreed to Common Core thereby creating the idea that Common Core is state-led,  it is believed that David Coleman actually engineered the standards in this reform.  Do research on Mr. Coleman. 

He is NOT for the children.  He and other current reformers are gaining power, money, and control of American education.   The authority of education is through parents.  Parents are being pushed aside and do not have a voice.  AUEE works to inform parents and give them a voice.  We work to inform teachers and give them a voice. 

 Click on the highlighted words above and listen with your own ears what he has to say.
