We have been reporting the failure of America’s government schools who now follow UNESCO’s worldwide Common Core.  You read that right: Common Core is a UNESCO program, and is supported by Microsoft.

As a result, American government schools are failing our students.  Fifty percent of American graduates cannot read, write and do simple math. Bill Gates admitted its failure. More money is his answer.  We all know that the only thing that will affect change is a return of the curricula back to traditional education, WHICH WAS A HUGE SUCCESS.

OK, so the schools are failing, who cares? What does that mean to me?  Why should I care?  Due to the extreme push for diversity, positions are filled following a racial quota, not ability. Our government positions are filled by diversity using racial lines not ability; therefore, the high standards and pride in work ethic are no longer important. Functionally illiterate people (people taught to be illiterate) are below average, so standard requirements are also lowered. Employers are finding workers are not qualified.  Too often, ignorant people make costly mistakes which could pose safety hazards or damaged products.  Instead of addressing the real issue, poor quality education, employers are forced to lower standards to meet population quotas often imposed by government through grants, subsidies or directives. Too often lowered standards pose a danger to the people they serve.

Will they still be elite after quotas have changed their academic rating?

These are just a few examples.  What we don’t see is what goes on in the actual office where common sense (no longer taught in school) does not exist, so porn now shown on government computers during work hours is acceptable.  Lying is acceptable, Emailing during work is acceptable.  All of this amounts to billions of dollars lost due to incompetence.

According to the CDC, American suicide is up 25% since 1999. Instead of asking why more meds are given to depressed people—often causing more depression, while root causes are ignored.

Depression has multiple causes. Some are:

•    an individual forced into a controlled environment
•    not being able to express themselves as individuals
•    anti-depressants
•    ignoring natural psychological and physical needs
•    not belonging
•    loneliness (devices replacing friends)
•    lack of responsibility
•    lack of morality
•    life without meaning or purpose
•    lack of common sense
•    inability to logically draw conclusions in problem solving
•    inability to reason (thus drawing wrong solutions)
•    frustration having no future or destiny.

All of these are key triggers often leading to anxiety and depression.

Depression can lead to violence and or suicide.  Sadly all of these key skills have been eliminated from schools, which now teach our children what to think, not how to think.

Common Core forces a child to think in a box with little hope for a future not in line with the predetermined government goal. Common Core is based on the premise that people are stupid and the “smart academics know best”.  To rise against their desired response often causes a child to be bullied or act out just to make their ideas known. Drugs, massive piercing, drinking, murder, terrorism, suicide are often the result of feeling hopeless.  Common Core manipulates emotion and eliminates individualism, forcing a child into groupthink, not innovation and creation. Emotion become dominant with no logic reason balance.  A person can only think of one thought at a time. By forcing overuse of right brain function (emotion) the left brain (logic and reason)  become dormant from lack of use.   Today, aside from being functionally illiterate, too many people are motivated by a trigger that unleashes unbridled emotion too often resulting in violence or suicide.


Continuing to do the same thing over and over, expecting different results, is insane, as we have heard over and over. Common Core, Whole Word Reading, Eureka Math, Evolution all assist in diminishing the capacity of America’s future. Yet we ignore the facts and continue to push this horrid programs filled with errors, omissions and bias.

Have we learned nothing from years of failing grades?

Why are we forcing America’s children to follow a failed program?  Education based on collectivism not individualism, training not education and values not facts, according to the brilliant educator Shirley McCune, is to change and alter the society.  This is not education. It is indoctrination. She promotes outcome based education.  Our children’s destiny will now be chosen by a computer.   How many more generations of Americans will we lose to this indoctrination called education? [Link]

According to Heather Mc Donald, Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, colleges are now forced to select students on the basis of Diversity.  This does not produce the best and brightest.  The danger in science she states is escalating as students study irrelevant subjects like diversity, race and minority affects on a variety of issues NOT SCIENCE.  If STEM students are selected by diversity not ability who will invent the next Widget, or cure? [Link]

I have a challenge.  Since Common Core was thrown at us without proper vetting (no test run) and violates many educational codes and statutes, why not have at least one school in each district teach traditional education?  You will be shocked at the results.

If nothing is done, how many more agencies and businesses will fail putting the public at risk?  Do we now get to choose our doctor, mechanic, air traffic controller, police based on color of skin or ability to do the job? The choice is ours.

What’s in your school?  Will you Join Floridacitizensalliance.com? Will you check your school? Your child’s work? Correct mistakes challenge texts for bias? errors? omissions? Join Us.  America’s future is in our hands.
