The two organizations are the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
Neither one of these organizations are in compliance with our Constitution.
“The National Governors Association (NGA) is the bipartisan organization of the nation’s governors. Through NGA, governors share best practices, speak with a collective voice on national policy and develop innovative solutions that improve state government AND SUPPORT THE PRINCIPLES OF FEDERALISM.”
The U.S. Constitution, on the other hand, is diametrically opposed to federalism. Instead, it granted specific powers to the federal government, severely limiting those powers to only those areas which might be better served at the federal level than the state level. As reemphasized in Tenth Amendment, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
As for the CCSSO, they developed Common Core. Yes, I’ve read through “The Common Core State Standards: Insight into Their Development and Purpose,” written by David T. Conley, co-Chair of the Validation Committee. I’ve seen many of the “outstanding” examples of Common Core’s blithering idiocy, if not massively liberal/left/socialist bent (broken, actually) and can’t help but wonder if this rampant communism is unique to the CCSSO or if it’s endemic throughout the entire U.S. educational system? Regardless, much of the crap found in Common Core stands firmly AGAINST the principles in our Constitution.
What the CCSSO fails to realize is that our Constitution isn’t an advisory. It is the LAW, “the supreme Law of the Land” (Article VI). When Common Core teachers that which opposes our Constitution, CCSSO becomes guilty of teaching our students to violate the law. CCSSO is fostering criminal activity.
It is for precisely these reasons why so many states have already rejected Common Core, and why so many more states are in the process of formalizing their rejection.
I was educated in the school systems of three states: Florida, Louisiana, and Virginia. My school system in Northern Virginia was by far the best, and fully prepared me for college and life. They were so good, in fact, I was able to retire at age 45, yet have chosen to go back to school, and will soon be graduating with honors.
Virginia has already formally rejected Common Core, and both Florida and Louisiana are in the process of formally rejecting it. I live in Colorado, which is also in the processes of formally rejecting it, despite the fact our Governor, John Hickenlooper, is the current Chair of the National Governors Association, and a drooling advocate of this educational cesspool.
