Dear Iowa Patriot,
Common Core is a massive acceleration to the federal government takeover of education and a major step toward total state control of our children.
For decades, America’s educational standards have been in decline, with each generation of leaders being less prepared and less educated than the ones before it. And the downhill spiral started when the federal government first started interfering.
The federal government is dictating the testing standards for all of the states. In addition, the government has added a radical data gathering and tracking system through Common Core.
Schools can now collect information from students on political affiliations, mental and psychological afflictions, religious practices, parental income, and illegal, anti-social, or sexual behavior - to name a few topics. This record will follow your child throughout their school years and beyond.
Please sign the petition below and demand that our state legislators support the repeal Common Core in Iowa.
Iowa Campaign for Liberty
Whereas: Determination of educational testing standards and curricula has always rightly been a function of local school boards and parents; and
Whereas: Common Core establishes a top-down, one-size-fits-all approach to educating children, which removes local and parental control; and
Whereas: The various states were bribed into accepting Common Core, being promised federal grant money if they complied; and
Whereas: Common Core creates an additional vehicle for gathering sensitive data on Iowa students and their families which will follow them throughout their school years and beyond.
Therefore: I demand that my state legislators support complete repeal of the Common Core Standards in Iowa.
