Common Core - Get Educated!

Have you heard of Common Core yet?

If not, you need to.


Common Core is our government's attempt to centralize education and indoctrinate our nation's kids, and it's actually in violation of three laws (surprise, surprise). Even though most of you reading this are or will be educating your children at home, we all need to know about Common Core; it's already affecting homeschool curriculum.

Please watch this very informative short video from Stop Common Core to learn more about this insanity:

Websites With More Information

Cheeky Bums Blog - This post explains Common Core very thoroughly.

Cheeky Bums Blog - This post tells how Common Core will affect homeschoolers (excellent read!).

The Educational Freedom Coalition - Click here to see which curriculum companies have aligned themselves with Common Core.


Truth in American Education - They have a recent post with links about the 400 data points that the government is collecting on each child in public school. Insane!

Betrayed - Why Public Education is Failing - Fantastic article about math standards! Really, go read it!

The Washington Times has a great post about Common Core and the GED (as well as sample writing prompt from the test implying that the 9/11 hijackers were poor Afghans who were just a product of their unfortunate environment. I'm totally serious.)

Let's not keep our heads in the sand about this, friends!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this. Last Saturday I just had a fellow homeschool Mom ask me if I had heard about Core Curriculum. I had heard the term floating around, but had no idea what it was. Now I can be informed.

    1. Isn't it crazy, Jessica? It's almost too twisted to be true, but they say that truth is stranger than fiction. I hope more people learn about the dangers of Common Core and spread the word. Thanks for stopping by, Jessica!

  4. I posted your article on my Facebook page called "Parents and Educators Against Common Core Curriculum in Colorado" Please stop by. I love to see folks like you doing your part to get the word out. So I want to send people to your site to read the info you've gathered. I get over 2000 visitors a day so I expect many will check your site out. Keep up the work....there's a lot to do!

    1. Thanks for posting my article, Anonymous. It seems like lots of people are still in the dark about Common Core, so anything we can do to spread the word is wonderful! Thanks for your hard work!

  5. Melody, I want to pin this so it's obvious what it is. Would you consider adding a little graphic so the pin will catch people's eye and make them want to click through?

  6. Oh my...this is scary! I feel like everywhere I turn around there is some kind of information on how the government is working against us. Whether it's education, the food we eat, healthcare...and the list goes on. It could be a little depressing. Instead of letting it get us down, though, we've got to take a stand on what's right and definitely pray for the Lord's help! Thanks so much for sharing this...I'm definitely going to post the link on facebook! God bless~Stacey

    1. It is scary, Stacey, but you're right to remember that God is in control. That thought gives me peace when I think this country is going insane. Thanks for spreading the word, Stacey!
