We all know the old saying, "If mom isn't happy, no one is happy." But what do moms think of the federal takeover of our education system through Common Core standards?
Phyllis Schlafly, conservative stalwart and founder of the Eagle Forum answers that question and more. As we reported earlier, Common Core standards are
tied to the gathering of in-depth personal data on every child including scholastic, health and behavior (including sexual), and even home life all the way through college.
Schlafly sees a parallel in the collection of data with Chinese Communists,
who as a way that totalitarian state kept control of its people would be to store personal information "in a manila folder that was ultimately turned over to his employer when he finished school."
Although federal laws supposedly prohibit the collection of intimate personal information and the building of a national database on students, but as Schlafy points out, The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) "have been amended to weaken privacy restrictions. Databases on students can be collected by states and then exchanged with other agencies and states, which effectively achieves a national student database."
+ + Common Core: Preying On Our Children
Syndicated columnist Michele Malkin writes that, despite protections guaranteed by FERPA, "the Obama administration is paving the way for private entities to buy their way into the data boondoggle."
<#First_name#>, whether you're a mother, a grandmother or not, you should be seeing red over such an egregious violation of personal and privacy rights -- and the fact that it's being done to our children is perhaps the most despicable of all!
