Subject: Breaking News-Indian River County parents want answers
Breaking news out of Indian River County Florida-
I was contacted tonight by a group of parents wanting answers.
This quiz(survey) below was given to Ms Kendrick’s 7th grade civics class last week at Storm Grove Middle School in Indian River County.
The students were told that they could not take this Quiz/Survey home, they had to complete at school. One student felt that they must consult with “his or her” parent and did not feel comfortable filling it out. In other words the student had to “smuggle it out” as described to me. (child is afraid of getting in trouble and we will can not disclose identity of child)
After you read this quiz/survey, as a conservative parent you will be appalled by material being taught. Parents are outraged at the way the questions are presented.
See teacher’s weekly agenda to notice that this assignment is CCSS aligned.http://teachersites.schoolworld.com/webpages/sgmscivics/masterisn.cfm?subpage=1764110
Parents want an explanation to why a “civics” (a study of the theoretical practical aspects of citizenship, its rights and duties…) curriculum aligned to Common Core State Standards is being taught? The FL DOE had been emphatic that CCSS is only going to be thought in English Language Arts and Math only. Secondly, parents want to know “who” approved this curriculum material being taught?
Parents and members of the community are planning to show up at the IRC School Board meeting to ask for this material to immediately be removed from “OUR” children’s curriculum.
Perhaps parents should also ask about this too…
The “agency” National Governor’s Association, (NGA) is the state governors. They formed the non-profit, they leave their state and meet in the district of U.S. (a foreign owned corporation and foreign jurisdiction like a foreign country) with immunity, created the standards, and then go back to their states and pass the bills they write together. This is how “uniform” state acts get passed. They all pass the same thing, pretending to be independent.
In my humble opinion, this is fraud and treason. —Arnie Rosner.
