Common Core - We hear about it everywhere, meetings taking place and articles written in papers coast to coast, north to south. There seems to be no middle ground, once people learn about it they are either for or against, there is very little middle ground. But what is it exactly? What is its real purpose? Truthfully, I don’t know. I’ve heard everything from it being the federal government’s solution for a failing education system unable to prepare our students to compete in a global environment to it being a part of UN Agenda 21 designed to indoctrinate our children to become dumbed down worker bees for a new global government. I’m sure the truth lies somewhere in between, but where? How shall our youth be taught in our schools and under whose direction? When the other sections on history and civics are released will our country be changed forever? Maybe we can find out at our meeting, dig out at least part of the truth so we are able to make intelligent decisions. Be prepared to participate and learn from experts on both sides of the issue. The truth is out there, it’s our duty as citizens to find it.
