Opting Out Could Stop Common Core

by Richard Stump on Common Core in California

Hello, everyone.

I have been told by those in the legal profession that if five per cent (5%) of parents OPT OUT their children (which is their right to do) from Common Core Testing, the school is required (by Common Core’s own rules) to stop the testing.

As I guess you all know, there are good things in the Common Core program, but those things can be implemented by a school district WITHOUT resorting to the things parents are concerned about.


#1) There is too much of it! Which takes away from instruction time. And it almost ‘forces’ teachers to ‘teach to the test’ because the TEACHERS ARE BEING EVALUATED ON THE RESULTS OF THESE TESTS.

#2) Included among the ‘usual’ questions you might expect on tests, the Common Core mandate requires PSYCHO-METRIC testing!

What is ‘psycho-metric testing’? These are questions designed to learn the student’s FEELINGS and TENDENCIES. These questions have nothing to do with the subject being tested but they are included in EVERY TEST the student takes from Kindergarten to 12th Grade.

The information gained in ‘psycho-metric testing’ is sent to the federal ‘government’ where it will stored and analyzed thereby creating a LIFETIME PROFILE of the person which can be used by the ‘government’ in granting or refusing anything it wishes.

Like admission into the armed forces.
Admission into elite universities.
Selection for particular employment.

The ‘government’ has no restriction in sharing this information with anyone it chooses. Which can lead to

Lost employment opportunities.
Blocking career choices.
Blocking education choices.

The concerns about Common Core testing are many, but I promised I would keep these emails short.

Therefore: if you have any specific questions, please send them to me.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – Deuteronomy 4:29-31 (NIV)

"But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in distress and all these things have happened to you, then in later days you will return to the Lord your God and obey him. For the Lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which he confirmed to them by oath." 3-7-16

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Donald Trump from”Crippled America” (Posted on 3-7-16)

"But then I realized I couldn't stand what I was seeing. I couldn't believe the hypocrisy and inaction of Washington 'insiders' who wanted to keep the gravy train flowing in their direction, while outside the beltway, Americans were suffering and they were rightfully angry about the lack of leadership and creativity. . . . It begins by creating millions of good jobs for hardworking Americans."
