Pass Local Leadership
In Education Act

The Obama regime is now blackmailing states into accepting its one-size-fits-all socialist education model known as Common Core. Obama is withholding federal education funds from states that pass laws rejecting Common Core.

"Communist Core," as we call it, is a new curriculum (new since 2010) which is saturated with Big Government, no-rights-for-the individual brainwashing education standards. It was designed by some of the brightest communist minds in the world and its goal is to transform American children into mindless robots who will obey federal officials without objection.

Once states realize the dangers of Communist Core and try to pull out, Obama's federal education bullies step in and threaten to withhold federal funds from local school districts.

Your help is needed to stop Obama's blackmail!

Send FaxGrams to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee today and demand that they pass the Local Leadership in Education Act, S. 144.

S 144 was written and sponsored by Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID). The bill prevents the federal government from blackmailing states that choose to abandon Obama's Communist Core education standards.

Obama's curriculum has been adopted fully or in part by 44 states. As usual, Obama's tactic is "my way or the highway." The federal government is blackmailing the states that have rejected his commie education standards by withholding federal funds.

This is unjust and Obama's one-size-fits-all education model does not work for American schools. On top of that, the standards are so bad that the federal government has stopped conducting surveys among teachers to see how many are opposed to Communist Core.

Sen. Crapo's S 144 prevents the Obama administration from imposing any curriculum on any state, which puts control of schools back in the states and local communities, where it belongs. Senator Crapo has a very good constitutional voting record and a long history of standing up to Obama. He has our support and he deserves your support as well!

S. 144 would undermine Obama's brainwashing Communist Core education standards and put control of public schools back into local communities where it belongs. Send your FaxGrams to the Senate today in support of this bill!

We are strong supporters of private Christian schools and homeschooling. The public school system is a broken mess that will only keep getting worse, so long as Obama is allowed to continue blackmailing states into accepting his communist education standards.

The evidence speaks for itself. Private Christian schools and homeschoolers score significantly higher on all standardized or other tests, while America's public school students are falling so far behind that kids in poor countries like Viet Nam are now outpacing us.

We believe that Christian parents have the first responsibility for educating their children, just as Timothy was in the Bible. Paul points this out when writing, "And from infancy you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Jesus Christ."

We want to see the public schools eventually brought back to the level of Christian schools and homeschooling, and that means ripping control away from Obama and giving it back to local communities and parents.

Send your FaxGrams to the Senate today and urge them to pass the Local Leadership in Education Act! Take away Obama's blackmail-and-brainwashing powers!

Dear Chairman Alexander:

Many states are now realizing the dangers that Common Core standards pose to individual freedom and educational attainment. These idiotic standards are so indecipherable in many cases that the Department of Education has stopped surveying teachers to determine whether they support or oppose it (support among teachers dropped 30-percent from 2011-2013). A majority of American parents are now opposed to Obama's standards.

Examples from across the country are popping up which illustrate the fact that Common Core curriculum actually discourages the idea of individual freedom. The math questions are inexplicable and teachers are given little or no instruction on how to teach these "new" methods.

What is especially disturbing is that when states decide to pull out of Obama's Communist Core standards, the federal government begins threatening to withhold funds. Blackmailing states into Obama's one-size-fits-all communist education standards is WRONG!

Control of local schools and the curriculum and standards they use belongs in LOCAL hands. States and local communities should be able to decide their own educational standards without being threatened and bullied by Obama. It is unfair to bully and blackmail states that decide they can do a better job of educating their kids than a group of communist bureaucrats in faraway Washington, D.C.

I urge you to support and pass the Local Leadership in Education Act, S 144, immediately. The federal government should not be forcing standards on states through the use of threats and blackmail. This act will put educational decisions and standards back where they belong -- in local communities and states. Pass this bill NOW!
