What planet do some of these Representatives and Senators come from? Along with the governor they tried to strip the Superintendent of Public Instruction’s (SPI) ability to do the job the voters elected that person to do in 2013, and 22,000 Wyomingites signed a petition to keep it an elected position, the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled the debacle SF-104 unconstitutional, and here we are again with HJ-2 and SJ-5 calling to amend the constitution to eliminate the SPI as an elected official by the people.
“In reading the entire NGSS document, suspicions are confirmed that these national programs are merely the latest pipe dreams of the ‘Educational Industrial Complex’. This becomes remarkably clear when we evaluate the NGSS in terms of the influences of the ‘social’ (soft) sciences. Quantitative analysis is often seen as being too limiting or restrictive, while impressions, opinions and the ever-present ‘feelings’ are much more ‘human’ and ‘social’.” ~ J. Nations
Jim Nations provides a very good analysis of the dangers of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and why it should not be adopted, or more specifically, to oppose HB-23.
“The most malicious attacks on Christianity come from within our public schools and universities. The year 1963 was the beginning of the end for a Godly America. Madelyn Murray O’Hair, a left-wing atheist, with close ties to the American Communist Party, filed a lawsuit against the school board of Baltimore.”
“The National Education Association (NEA) attracts thousands of delegates to its annual convention in Washington, D.C. Topics of conversation and debate generally have nothing to do with education, but instead have to do with things such as socialized health care, global warming, and pro-choice rights. The NEA wants amnesty and free college tuition for illegal-immigrant students. They lobby against English as our official language and advocate diversity in the classroom – ‘diversity’ being the code-word for pro-gay indoctrination. In 2009, teachers even wore buttons that said, ‘Gay rights are civil rights.’”
“Just last week Gov. Mead defended Common Core on a radio talk show, stating ‘Wyoming students have to have some standard to work from.'”
“His statement rang hollow to the tens of thousands of hours Wyoming teachers worked to create our own state standards over the last two decades — standards unique to Wyoming but now being flushed with the advent of a federal curriculum.”
