Synthroid® is prescribed across America for adrenal, thyroid and endocrine disorders of all types.
Common Core State Standards compliant high stakes tests (and all of the expensive accompanying computer programs, texts and other publications, teacher assessment programs, school funding, and the legislative mandates) are prescribed across America for educational disorders of all types.
The educational needs of children are very complex and individualized.
Now, let me get personal. My wife and I recently encountered six friends with widely different specific symptoms and diagnoses who are prescribed Synthroid®. My own longtime prescription for Armour® contains T3 and T4.
“The thyroid hormones, triiodothyronine (T3) and its prohormone, thyroxine (T4), are tyrosine-based hormones produced by the thyroid gland that are primarily responsible for regulation of metabolism. Iodine is necessary for the production of T3 and T4.”
My prescription insurance company has just had my pharmacist call me to let me know that Armour® is no longer a “preferred” drug. The insurance company wants me to take Synthroid® which is cheaper. Previously, Synthroid® did no good for me. Synthroid® has only T4 – no T3. If I insist on Armour® which has both T3 and T4 I will have to pay more than double what I had paid previously. Fierce profit making forces have the two drug companies that produce those two prescription medications locked in a financial battle.
All of the students that I have had over my 34 year career had individual needs that were more complex than any of the chemical constituents of these medicines. An endocrinologist for a medical prescription and career teachers and educators for educational requirements prescribe for those needs.
The insurance industry exists to make profits.
CCSS exists to make profits.
Common Core State Standards is a licensed company (CCSSO is the sole owner and developer of Common Core State Standards.) that makes profits from public education taxes for all of the associated multinational corporations and their investors worldwide who are part of the growing Education Industrial Complex. Nearly each state has it’s own brand of CCSS compliant tests.
Major tax free “foundations” are heavily financially invested as they feign social solving abilities beyond the abilities of world experts in education. Since the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was basically the founding money for CCSS, and since the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundations financially support, via grants, the educational news of nearly all major media outlets, including NPR and PBS, the Education Industrial Complex has a major voice in public opinion about CCSS.

Nationally prescribed CCSS compliant high stakes tests for your child…
CONCLUSION: One size fits all is nonsense. It’s all about the money.
Go to a specialized endocrinologist for prescriptions and combinations of medications for your own specific needs.
Opt-Out, refuse and boycott your state’s high stakes test by going to United Opt Out to find letters and information for your child’s state.
