Below I'll give some links to information relating to Common Core and why we consider it a threat to our children. Then there will be two Vortex links: the first is a summary of Common Core and its infiltration into our schools. The next is taken from the Mic'd Up program, where Voris interviews Father Peter Stravinskas.
The Sept.-Oct. issue of Defend Life has an article, "Common Core 'Lite': Coming soon to a Catholic school near you," which gives an overview of Common Core, and presents strong evidence that the Archdiocese of Baltimore is implementing it in its schools. Attempts by Defend Life to learn whether Common Core is being implemented by the Archdiocese of Washington schools were unsuccessful. The article is on Defend Life's website, DefendLife.org.ReplyDelete
Thanks so very much for addressing common core in Catholic schools (bad enough it will be in government run schools). Although my children were blessed to attend and graduate from a Catholic Liberal Arts High School (www.thelyceum.org), I do wish to address the absurd idea of common core in our diocesan schools. Every piece you provide assists my case. Additionally, the Foiunder, former Headmaster, current Dean of Academics of The Lyceum has a blog that you may enjoy concerning Liberal Education and its necessity. It is, www.thelyceum.org/weblog/2013/09/15/ohioans-against-the-common-core/#comment-15123.ReplyDelete
