The Florida Citizens Alliance (FCA)has been in the forefront of combatting Common Core and objectionable materials that plague the classroom like an unstoppable virus. FCA have issued a new report that every family should read titled the Florida Curriculum Assessment. The 11 page report describes six categories of objectionable materials:
- English Language Arts
- Reconstructed History and
- Advanced Placement US History (APUSH)
- Religious Indoctrination
- Political Indoctrination
- Common Core Math Methodologies
Rep. Lee is sponsoring HB 989 that will require all county school districts to make materials available for families to review. The bill in being considered in this current legislative session and just in time because there are some materials in place that should not be in schools. Here are just a few quotes:
English Language Arts:
“English 3 :Florida Collections– by Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt Published-2013, is a collection of short stories. The overwhelming content of these types of stories and victimization, racism and bigotry are not teaching our children to be good citizens, but victims of an oppressive culture and with moral values that “anything goes”.
These materials are available beginning with 6th graders:
“One Example: Title: Beautiful Bastard, Author: Christina Lauren
“He leaned close enough to bite my shoulder, whispering, ‘You fucking tease.” Unable to get close enough, I quickened my pace on his zipper, shoving his pants and his boxers to the floor. I gave his cock a hard squeeze, feeling him pulse against my palm. He forced my skirt up my thighs and pushed me back on the conference table. Before I could utter a single word, he took hold of my ankles, grabbed his cock, and took a step forward, thrusting deep inside me. I couldn’t even be horrified by the loud moan I let out – he felt better than anything. ‘What’s that?’ he hissed through his clenched teeth, his hips slapping against my thighs, driving him deep inside. ‘Never been fucked like this before, have you? You wouldn’t be such a tease if you were being properly fucked.”
“Modern World History, 9th Grade Teacher Edition Year: 2013
Author: Holt McDougal Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
The most objectionable portions of the book were the sections on the American Revolution and Founding Principles. In the discussion of the Articles of Confederation, the commentary distorts the extensive back and forth between the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists
-no mention of the 13 colonies declaring their independence as 13 independent Nation States, each with powers of the other nations states of Britain, France, etc.
-no mention of the US Constitution being a legal document that created the federal government
-No mention that the federal government was a product of this legal compact and not a signer or ratifier of the compact. -No mention that this legal compact delegated only 18 well-defined and very limited powers in Article 1, sec 8
– Minimal mention of the extensive debates that led to the Bill of Rights and particularly why we have a 9th and 10thamendment.
– Grossly miss-represented the Federalist position/Stating “colonial leaders eventually recognized the need for a strong national government” –Not true- our Constitution was carefully crafted to limit federal government powers!”
