Common Core State Standards (aka CCSS) has enormous negative impacts on the proper education of ourRead More children. As it is implemented into the public schools, the Standards will require testing (e.g. SAT's and college entrance exams) follow the strict plan - so, even if one chooses Home Schooling or private education facilities, children desiring higher education will need to be prepared for the changes imposed by CCSS. Also, there is an extensive "data mining" facet that will intrude on almost every area of a student, and his/her family's, life in very intimate and intrusive ways. Check this out very carefully.

We could really keep kids safe by requiring them to wear body cameras and putting tracking devicesRead More somewhere in their clothes until they turn 18. Keep Our Own Kids Safe is a loosely knit group of people that really have our kids best interest in mind when they allow government to violate the Constitution.

Heaven forbid our precious little cherubs don't have a little stress applied to them in life.Read More Parents should protect our precious little cherubs so that way they can grow up and see what real life is and completely fail. The only thing I will say that favors eliminating homework is that they need to eliminate homework from public schools because the public schools are failing and why continue pumpimg more garbage into our kids while they are at home.
