Our subject tonight is Common Core, the latest government fad in education which, unfortunately, is much worse than a fad. Common Core allows the federal government, with the help of many compliant states, to control our children and determine just exactly how those children are prepared for a very difficult future. Common Core doesn't offer opportunity for kids to identify their God-given talents and pursue the dreams that come from that realization. No, Common Core dictates what that future will be from the cocoon of a bureaucratic setting operated as a crony-capitalist venture. It's just another case of where politicians curry favor with select businesses in order to receive campaign funding for the next election cycle and it's found nearly everywhere in today's America. And American education businesses participating can earn huge sums from the production of widely ranging and expensive educational materials.
Tonight, my friend Meg Norris from Georgia, a founder of the Georgia Opt Out program and a seasoned professional in the teaching of children will again join us on the show to discuss what is going on in the Peach State to stop this program. Whether you live in Georgia or not, her comments will be valuable to any parent or teacher, and yes, even students, in determining exactly what is going on in the local community and how they can influence it for the good of our most precious asset, our children.
