Some students are not attending school today as part of a parent-organized protest against Common Core.
Common Core is a national set of standards for education. Most states have adopted the curriculum, but some are reportedly backing out. The standards are not federally mandated, but the U.S. Government is
bribing offering increased funding to states that adopt the curriculum.
Critics say the standards have not been tested for effectiveness and implement a “one-size fits all” approach that doesn’t consider individual learning styles. Some have also expressed concern about the age-appropriateness of the content.
The protest is reportedly occurring in at least 16 states today and has become a political movement on Facebook. An organization called “Say No To Common Core,” says National Don’t Send Your Child To School Day is “intended to raise awareness of their concerns and put a stop to the new standards, demanding evidence-based standards that are locally controlled and no more data mining of our children.”
The protests were planned to coincide with American Education Week. In addition to keeping students home from school, parents who object to the Common Core standards are participating in public protests at state capitol, local school district offices, and local parks.
ABC News in New York reports:
Bob Crout’s child attends a public school, and he isn’t a fan of the Common Core standards. He said, “It sets them up for failure in life, instead of making them successful.”
Critics say that taking children out of school for the day is a bad idea, but supporters of the protest disagree:
“Any opportunity to see that we as normal citizens have a voice, that’s always an educational opportunity to me,” said Tina Wilson. She homeschools her children, but is concerned about the impact the Common Core standards will have on the teaching materials she uses.

Volusia County Florida Common Core Islamic Indoctrination Protest "Rescheduled" for Monday, November 18th
by Janna Brock
18 November 2013
Monday, November 18th is the day protesters will storm the Volusia County school board meeting in Deland, Florida. Hamas-CAIR is leading the opposition to protesters. Interestingly, the regularly scheduled school board meeting was set to take place on November 5th, but was rescheduled after the "district was contacted by the U.S. Department of Justice just prior to the board meeting was to begin at 4 p.m., said Nancy H. Wait, spokesman for Volusia County Schools." Obviously, Hamas-CAIR alerted the U.S. Department of Justice to stop the school board meeting, but the protesters still showed up, even though the meeting didn't take place. Now, it's scheduled for Monday. What kind of tactical diversion will Hamas-CAIR use this time to stop it?
Common Core Islamic Indoctrination is as real as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west. Actually, Monday November 18th is “National Don't Send Your Child to School Day” in protest of Common Core. So the protest in Volusia County over the "World History" Islamic jihadist high school history textbook is timed perfectly with this nation wide event. Close to 200 people have signed via Facebook on the page titled “Protest Rally against World History Curriculum in Volusia Public Schools.”
A line on the Facebook page set up by Rick Sarmiento and Earl Tony Ledbetter states, “We cannot allow our local, state and federal governments to take away our Christian heritage and indoctrinate our youth with that of one religion over all others. This is AMERICA for God’s sake!”
Common Core Islamic indoctrination is more than overt. It is fact, and it is by design. The textbook "World History" has one chapter solely devoted to Islam. There is no misrepresentation of intent. The intent is to proselytize. To even suggest otherwise is a boldface lie. When no other religion is given a chapter in the textbook and Islam is given 32 pages of praise and adoration, there is serious evil at work. The next step would be to give the students the Quran and call it "World History."
Hamas-CAIR is the organization behind the masquerade. When it comes to Common Core Islamic indoctrination, they are more than directly involved. They are the culprits. And they are also the one's issuing threats and warning the Department of Justice about protesting, as in the thwarted November 5th protest to coincided with the "cancelled" school board meeting.
"The nature of this information raised substantial safety concerns. Upon evaluation of this late information, the district determined that a short-term postponement would permit additional security measures are in place to ensure the safety of the students, public and employees at the meeting. While the district does not comment on security procedures, there was no specific threat of violence in this matter,” Nancy Wait Said.
“Our employees’ safety is a priority. I am going to review the textbook over the next two days,” Wright said before she would comment on the content that has upset some of the county’s residents.
For the record, people are upset about Common Core Islamic Indoctrination, disguised as a history textbook, and Hamas-CAIR strong armed the school district, via the Department of Justice, into calling off the meeting.
The textbook is one of the primary history books used in Florida schools. Nancy Wait also noted World History was one of three state-approved textbooks that met the state’s criteria for the adoption process.
This demonstrates the power of the Islamic lobby in American education, and the twisted, erroneous, and full on indoctrination purposes of Common Core. “Jihad may be interpreted as a holy war to defend Islam and the Muslim community, much like the Crusades to defend Christianity,” the textbook in question states. "World History" also declares "Muhammad as the “Messenger of God.” This is jihadist recruitment material; a call for ordinary American students to wage Islamic jihad, and to bow down to Muhammad.
“If the Muslim culture is taught as a segment in history classes (like Christianity, Catholicism, Judaism), I don’t see any problems with that. Our children need to learn about racial, religious and cultural differences. I think in this day and time, we all could stand to take a lesson or two in these areas,” Slater said.
If this doesn't qualify as anything less than the Muslim religion being taught in schools, then nothing else should qualify, but it is doubtful that the school district or "higher ups" will see it this way. If Hamas-CAIR does any threatening, they'll surely crater. And since that is all the "civil rights" organization does, there is no question they'll be waging war in every way they can to shut people up.
“The United States Supreme Court has clearly held that reference to religion in public school courses is constitutionally permissible for information rather than indoctrination purposes. For example, the study of world history is incomplete without reference to the role of religion in human development,” Wait said.
The November 18th meeting guidelines are listed below.
In order to accommodate all those who want to speak at public participation time during the Nov. 18 school board meeting, Wait said the following guidelines have been established:
Members of the public who wish to speak to the board will fill out a yellow public participation card prior to 4:30 p.m.; no additional cards will be taken after 4:30 p.m.
Bravo to all of those speaking and taking on the evils of Common Core Islamic indoctrination. This is an evil that must be thoroughly extinguished or America has NO chance of surviving. That evil is spreading like wildfire, engulfing everything in its path.
