Imagine the following scenario:
Your children from kindergarten through high school are being taught based on a nationalized standard curriculum that was developed by complete strangers in Washington, D.C. Your school has no say so in what is being taught or how it is taught. Your state legislators had nothing to do with its implementation, and therefore your voice was never heard.
Now consider that everything your child does is being tracked. Imagine there are points of data that are being collected on your child and shared with the federal government. Data such as their medical history, disciplinary records, religious affiliation, bus stop locations and times.Imagine that even
though you thought parental rights gave you the power of consent for this data to be collected and shared, in fact you really have no say in the matter.
Imagine that your local school board and your teachers have no control over the curriculum being taught in the school. Imagine that you are a homeschooler and you find out that college readiness exams such as SATs and ACTs have been changed to conform to this new nationalized curriculum being
taught in the public school.
Imagine an educational system that had been commandeered by an overreaching federal government to determine what and how
your children will be taught; and that it is all part of a plan to create the work force of the future. You as a parent have been removed from the equation because after all, it takes a village to raise a child…right?
Now, read back through those previous scenarios and remove the word “Imagine”. It is not hypothetical or conspiracy or something that only happens in the movies. It is real; it is happening; and it is more than likely already being implemented in your state and local school district.
