Today the Bluegrass Institute participated in an event hosted by the Christian Home Educators of Kentucky (CHEK) to raise awareness of the potential threats to Kentucky’s educational sovereignty created by the state’s adoption of Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
These standards are a one-sized-fits-every-state educational curriculum to which the commonwealth acquiesced before the standards were even finalized. Not only is it concerning that the feds coerced states like Kentucky – prone to accepting every federal carrot dangled in front of their noses – into accepting the standards, the efficacy of this curriculum is also under dispute as at least five of the 29 members of the CCSS validation committee refused to sign on in support.
What: Christian Home Educators of Kentucky Conference, a lecture on the perils of the Common Core State Standards
Who: Dick Innes, Educational Analyst for the Bluegrass Institute
When: Saturday, June 14 at 11 AM
Where: Valley View Church, Conference Room A. 8911 Third Street Rd. Louisville, KY. 40272
So come on out and learn about this important issue.
