wolfsheep

We MUST take a few moments today and contact our Wyoming delegation!  There are TWIN bills being voted on today that will do more harm than the good!   They claim to fix No Child Left Behind but reading closer it actually does MORE harm to our children’s education! These are TRULY a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing!

Senator Enzi CALL (202) 224-3424 and  ask him to VOTE NO on S1177

Senator Barrasso CALL  (202) 224-6441 and ask him to VOTE NO on S1177

Representative Cynthia Lummis CALL (202) 225-2311L ask her to  VOTE NO on HR5

Below are the REASONS we want them to VOTE NO!  Detailed information can also be found at the API 21 Pointed List.

 HR 5:

  • Cements the unconstutitional Fed Master- State Servant relationship
  • Attacks parental opt out movement – kills parental opt out rights
  • Hacks off religious freedom and autonomy for any private schools that receive federal dollars for any of their programs
  • Pretends that federal FERPA hasn’t been shot full of holes and depends on FERPA for privacy rights (what privacy rights?)
  • Fails to require parental consent for state data mining of children’s personally identifiable data
  • Creates unelected committees that have real power over state citizens who did not elect them
  • Fails to provide enforcement for autonomy which means there won’t be any state autonomy
  • Extends federal tentacles and data collection to preschoolers
  • Reinforces socialist alignment of schools to workforce, putting economy first without regard for students
  • Retains federal testing mandates

 S1177 does:

  • Pretends to protect us from federal overreach with redundant, nonhelpful language
  • Aligns us to “college and career ready” standard which ARE Common Core, federally defined elsewhere
  • Cements the unconstutitional Fed Master- State Servant relationship
  • Mandates that States answer to the Feds even on altering state standards
  • Retains federal testing mandates
  • Adds to the list of programs a state must consult and aligns with workforce (socialism) program
  • Dictates types of testing
  • Forces out the parental opt out movement
  • Narrows the definition of “mental health” and “school climate” that reduces student religious and political expression
  • Probes into psychological data collection on children without parental consent
  • Fails to require parental consent for state data mining of children’s personally identifiable data
  • Extends federal tentacles and data collection to preschool
