Thought Provoking Thursday: Becoming Common Core – Why Not?

Just in case you are not knowledgeable of Common Core or is affected by it already in some way via having some public schooled children then I’ve gathered some information for you to read at your leisure.

These links are NOT to alarm you but you educate you.

If you nor I are educated then we will fall to *fear and worry* because we simply do not *know* nor *understand* what Common Core is all about.

We can pay *royally* if we fail to possess knowledge and understanding (as much as possible) on this subject.

Scripture teaches us that above ALL OF OUR GETTING………we should get an understanding!

I do not condone, stand behind nor support any of these sources of information I’ve linked below.

I’m ONLY providing these resources so that YOU can gather information and be informed.

Please eat any *meat* and spit out the bones.

Meaning, take what you think to be pertinent information on your journey and throw out anything that is of a bogus nature and that is not pertinent to your journey towards understanding Common Core.

I would appreciate any feedback or further enlightenment you may have on this subject.
