In 1838 Noah Webster, the father of American education, expressed the purpose of schools was the advancement of the Christian faith:
In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children under a free government ought to be instructed … No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.
Whether you believe in Jesus Christ or not, until he was given the old kick to the curb in 1963, when prayer was tossed out of American government schools, education was at or near the highest quality on earth.
The word common is erets in the Hebrew it means, nations, way or world.
Core means the central innermost part of, the most essential part of anything.
My husband has always said that this indoctrination system called the NEA is the worst enemy of our nation. With those definitions in mind is this agenda in education really essential to the innermost part of our children's development? Common Core is a one size fits all system designed o massively dumb down our children and all future generations. We no longer care about reading, writing and arithmetic. We want to save the planet, the owls and the turtles while teaching them that killing the children is choice and not murder. We want condoms on banans and recycle bins on every curb. Cursive writing is being removed so that our children wont be able to sign contracts or documents it will all be digital.
