Chamber conducts “private” meeting about Common Core, parents forced to stand outside and protest
A protest is planned this Friday as once again a closed meeting is being conducted inside a taxpayer funded (yes the COC is partially funded with taxpayer revenue) venue about Common Core away from the general public.
If this does not convince you that something sinister is happening you will never be convinced of it. This is the second time in as many weeks that “private” meetings are being held and the public is not being invited about Common Core.
It is obvious that this is a deliberate attempt to slide an agenda into place without parent or school board influence or input. Corporatism and Nationalism of our schools are one of the biggest mistakes that can be made that affects our children.
The subversive and covert actions by these sinister organizations with a hidden agenda is surely enough to convince you that something is up and you are not supposed to know about it.
Here is a support letter from the Chamber of Commerce as it relates to Common Core.
Corporate America and Big expansive Government is now running the show and the direction of our schools. School board influence is dwindling and parents can no longer direct decision making. This is a very sad statement.
A message from Karen Bracken of Tennessee Against Common Core, tnacc.net .
On Friday, November 22, 2013 the Cleveland/Bradley County Chamber of Commerce will be conducting a closed meeting for members only about Common Core with representatives from SCORE. We plan to conduct an anti-Common Core rally outside the meeting.
We are speaking with Channel 12 and Times Free Press to cover the rally. SO PLEASE grab your neighbors and join us on Friday, at 8:30am. We suggest parking by Starbucks. We will all gather there and then walk to the area where we will conduct our rally (the Chamber office is located in the same shopping center as Starbucks). LETS SEND A HUGE LOUD message to the Chamber and to SCORE.
The Cleveland Starbucks is located at 653 West Inman St., Cleveland, TN. Throw a coat on the kids and bring them with you.
Please share this information with neighbors, friends and relatives in the Bradley County area that might be interested in supporting our efforts. Thanks.
