Our Declaration of Independence has something to say about Common Core.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Common Core destroys Happiness… Therefore according to Thomas Jefferson, We The People have the obligation to destroy it… “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive to the pursuit of Happiness, IT IS THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO ABOLISH IT….”
This test is terrible and must be replaced… We, the People have the obligation to make the decisions our children are unable to make.
Are we Somalia? Are we Saudi Arabia? Are we Iran? No? But it sure looks that way when gazing at our state’s Department of Education.
We The People need to opt our children out of the Smarter Balanced Assessment,… because our Declaration of Independence demands it of us all!
