Events and Activities



The 2016 legislative session started last Tuesday and so far our Parental Rights bill has not been scheduled and it does not have even one co-sponsor.  If this bill is important to parents you must get people to call their TN House Representative and Senator and ask them to vote YES for HB1268/SB1298  AND ask them to sign on as a co-sponsor.  We want this bill passed as written.  We do not want them to water it down to the point that it accomplishes nothing.  And believe me there are members of our General Assembly that DO NOT want this bill to pass (Harry Brooks is one of them).  The OPT OUT accommodation conflicts with the unconstitutional ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act).  Please know 2 things.  1.  Common Core is not and will not be gone in TN.  2.  ESSA does not give control of education back to the states.  Here is just a very short brief idea of how Sen. Alexander deceived us AGAIN.  In a stunning interview Arne Duncan described how he and his team hoodwinked the members of Congress to pass this legislation and the deals made behind closed doors.  His Chief of Staff Emma Vadehra told a group of state education committee chairs that ESSA will embed college and career (Common Core aligned standards) into law and they do not expect any states to get away from the standards.
