What is “Common Core” ?

The United States of America was founded on a balance of power between state and federal government. The Founders of our nation knew how quickly a powerful central government can turn tyrannical. From a Founding Father perspective of how dangerous consolidation of power is, putting the education of our children and “all future generations of children” into the hands of one centralized controlling power is foolish at best. For that reason alone, The Constitution Party of Florida does not support Common Core. Apparently, there are many more reasons not to support Common Core as well.

There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
James Madison



“Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.”
Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788

  • I find good information and advice from your articles and posts. Thank you.

  • Any common core program has to stay with the State controlling it. However, I would like to make a suggestion for your consideration: The success rate for our students really depends a lot on the education level of the student’s mother. Single parents, welfare, student drop outs, teen pregnancies, drugs, etc..this cycle needs to be broken….so..why not concentrate on female students in our junior high classes with a program like this: offer them the birth control implants to use through high school graduation and pay them to do it. But, their money would be placed in their educational account for use to attend college . Cycle broken.
