Oppose Common Core

Common Core Standards (CCS) is a vampire planning to suck the freedom out of the American people and the brains out of our children.
On March 14, the Pennsylvania State Board of Education (with Gov. Corbett's dark approval) voted to rip their vampiric teeth into parents' jugulars and inject CCS venom into English and math. It sets into motion nationally mandated common course standards for all K-12 students so that education will be standardized across the country. This effectively eliminates the ability of parents and local school boards to influence content standards to suit local needs, turning us all into lifeless socialist zombies.
State Rep. Paul Clymer, R-Bucks County, House Education Committee chairman, has been refusing to hold hearings on the dire consequences of CCS. Go to nopacommoncore.com and thenewamerican.com to learn about this evil curriculum. Contact Clymer at 717-783-3154 to demand that he end his dark insolence and allow us to speak against this attack on our parental rights through advertised public hearings!
Fly your Gadsden rattlesnake “Don't Tread On Me” flag today and take action to preserve freedom in education and end this vampiric attack on us and our children.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
