This Page Explains the Basics of Common Core


Common Core is Unconstitutional and Illegal

The CCSS for K-12 schools are designed to replace local and parental control over education with centralized, top-down control and violates the tenth amendment to the US Constitution, which states:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”

CCSS are also in direct violation of three federal statutes: The General Education Provisions Act, the Department of Education Organization Act, and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.


What is Common Core?

Common Core is the National Education Standard's Initiative that 46 States, the Department of Defense Education Activity, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the American Samoa Islands have all adopted, sight unseen. Puerto Rico has not adopted the standards.

National Standards:
National Standards focus on effort and empty skill sets and not on ability.

Science and Social Studies standards are on the round table for approval right now. Common Core approved literature is full of sexually inappropriate content and political indoctrination.

Data mining:
Data mining is sourced from school registration information and the national assessment's test data. They source over 400 data points on our children and the data is kept for life and shared with Government entities.

Next Generation Assessment Tests:
PARCC - Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. (PARCC will be assessed several times a year and will replace TCAP)
SBAC - Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

These assessments are very costly to implement and maintain and are time consuming. They also force our teachers to teach to the test.

College Entrance Exam Reform:
ACT/GED are currently being aligned with Common Core, which means that private schools, charter schools, parochial schools and home schools will be affected by this alignment with Common Core.

SAT/PSAT are pending alignment.

Who Does Common Core Effect?
Public, parochial, private, home schools and IB programs. This will also have a drastic affect on the taxpayer.

Who Developed Common Core?
Two private trade organizations/D.C. lobby groups developed the Common Core Standards.
1.  National Governors Association (NGA)
2.  The Chief Council of State School Officers (CCSSO)

Standards are owned and copyrighted by these groups and changes to standards cannot be made except through these organizations.

Why Did Colorado Adopt Common Core?
Colorado adopted CCSS in order to receive a portion of the "Race to the Top" stimulus money offered by the Federal Government.

Colorado received $17.9 million and also received a "No Child Left Behind" waiver as part of the bribe.

What Is So Bad About Common Core?
It is unconstitutional education without representation. Governors and the State Department of Education made the decision without the voice of "we the people". This creates a lack of local control in our education system.

Common Core in effect gives total control of our children to the US Government and the United Nations through centralized education. It is a move towards Agenda 21's "Global Education for All" (Chapter 36) which reads as: "...changing the world economics to a more sustainable global economic society."

Common Core is very costly to implement at approximately $16 billion.
