Parents and Teachers Across America Unite

Parents and teachers across America are uniting against Common Core.  Common core is partly education without representation, but it is also social engineering.   If you care about your child/children, and what goes into your child's/children's mind take a half hour to view the movie.     Here is a movie called Building the Machine at
