Taking Back America By Taking Back Our Schools

Question to all of my friends here on the Education Action Network:


How do you think would be the best way to really get through to parents?  In other words, what is one of the major hot buttons that we can press on to really wake them up?  Is it the fact that teachers are being brought up on charges for sexual misconduct?  Is it the fact that students are marginalized for having conservative values?  What is the one hot button topic that you think will really impact ALL parents?


I am currently soliciting ideas because this is a subject that we can all grab a hold of and sink our teeth into!  Let’s kick this football around a bit.

Please send me your ideas, so we can begin attacking this issue in the right direction.

Maybe parents losing control.

I agree with Karen.  Getting parents to understand they are being eliminated from the equation and the government will have control of just about every aspect of your child's life - except maybe putting them to bed at night - and that may even be challenged with overly intrusive data mining.

Thanks a lot Karen and Carol;

As a matter of fact-that is exactly what they are striving for.  Read the following article:


But lets not stop at the elimination of parental rights, what are some of the other hot button issues that will get parents to wake the hell up?

Losing control should be #1, but indoctrination (destroying the moral code) #2.

Comment by Carol Clesceri on June 19, 2013 at 9:11am

I strongly agree.

Also, privacy issues relating to the Longitudinal Database

Comment by karen gevaert on June 19, 2013 at 6:46pm

Yes, that will be #3

Harry,  What are you referring to when you say the "Longitudinal Database"?

Comment by JM Horne on June 19, 2013 at 7:20pm

I was also thinking about the war on American culture. 

It is very obvious that anything that is pro-American these days is shunned.  Did you see the recent article where Jared Marcum, 14, has been criminally charged for refusing to remove a T-shirt with National Rifle Association’s logo and hunting rifle.  Regardless of how you feel about gun rights, the boys T-shirt is a very obvious expression of a recognized constitutional right and constitutes political speech.

JM, Common Core Curriculum includes data mining and collecting of student info from the time they enter school to the time they enter the workplace and that info is stored in what they call the Student Longitudinal DataBase. Everything imaginable is stored there - including bio-metrics and psychometrics. It's truly Orwellian. This will surely lead to the stratification of society so that your database will determine what you can and cannot aspire to in life. The info will be readily available to pretty much whoever wants it.
