Texas Mom Exposes ‘Illegal’ Practice of ‘Common Core’ in Local School System

In what some have called the “Obamacare of Education”, Common Core is not only illegal in Texas, it’s a failure.

KATY, TX (INTELLIHUB) — Back in June, Gov. Rick Perry (R), Texas, effectively signed HB462, banning the practice of CSOPE/Common Core in the Texas educational system, but now one local mom is speaking out.

Local resident, mother and activist, Laurie McFarling has been raising awareness about the globalized indoctrination programs for some time, in an all-out push to end the sponsored madness spewed forth by globalist entities such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Council of Governors and others such as Bill Ratliff, Microsoft lobbyist and a member of the Texas Board of Education. The fight has not been easy by any means and in many respects is being fought entirely on a local level.

McFarling has recently joined forces with other concerned moms on Facebook, Texas Against Common Core, who are now actively scouring all local Texas independent school systems for evidence of related illegal conduct which some feel is Hitlerian in nature. “Most of us who lived through this Hitler era remember how British Prime Minister Chamberlain gushed how great Hitler’s Youth Corps was, much like those who support Common Core today”, Donald Conkey of the Cherokee Tribune wrote.

Make no mistake the way Common Core is set up, it will allow the government to literally regulate history, inserting and/or pulling bits of information from the curriculum at anytime McFarling explained in a phone interview with Intellihub staff, going on to make a point to mention how they are now teaching “revised history” in Texas schools. She said that “a simple Google search proves it”, referring to her child’s local school district.

Despite the government’s propaganda and the programs enormous budget made up of  U.S. taxpayer dollars, it has been blocked in Texas by the efforts of good people like McFarling. However, now the question is: will the law be enforced?

It’s also important to point out that Common Core is also a national and international effort, not limiting the indoctrination efforts to just Texas. In fact Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has recently taken some heat from the tea party on the issue.

Most like journalist Kyle Olson are fed up with Common Core. To some, the lesson plans are quite repulsive.

One of Common Core’s 3rd Grade agendas portrays President Barack Obama essentially as a Messiah. Olsen wrote, “In one passage, a young Obama sees beggars and wonders, “Will I ever be able to help people like these?”

“Hope hung deep inside of him,” the book adds.

Another excerpt from the book reads: “Before dawn each morning, Barry rose – his mother’s voice driving him from dream land. ‘Time for learning English grammar and the Golden Rule. Be honest, be kind, be fair,’ she taught him.”

The story continues: “One morning, he slipped on the name he’d been born with. The name of his father, Barack. For the first time in his life, he wore it proudly – like a coat of many colors.”

Uh oh – another Obama-inspired Biblical reference in a government school! But there’s no controversy here. Leftists will use God and the Bible, in instances such as these, when it appropriately fits their propaganda purposes.”
