Dear Parents, Teachers cannot protect your children from well financed abusers.

I truly admire Peggy Robertson, and you should, too. Why?

As an active teacher she openly admits that it takes parents to stop the dismantling of public education by Corporate Education Reform multinational investors disguised as social reformers attempting to help children. High stakes testing of any brand name that complies with Common Core State Standards (CCSS) harms our children.

Peggy RobertsonHere is an excerpt from her “must read and share” article:
What is happening is evil, cruel and abusive. Refuse the tests and deny the corporations the profit, deny the district, state and federal government your child’s data (which they can share with corporations), deny the publishing companies the opportunity to create more common core products. Without the data, the profit ends and we have an opportunity to reclaim our public schools, our profession. We have an opportunity to do what is right for all children.”
Peggy Robertson

As a mom, Peggy sees students from the perspective of both sides of the desk and from the standpoint of a parent/teacher who wants wants the best from a teacher/parent. (You do the mind reversals involved with this!)

She is one of the founders and driving forces behind United Opt Out, the sole writer of the incredible Peg with Pen blog, and a driving force in the actual betterment of public schools.

As a loving parent/teacher she witnesses the actual harm and empathizes deeply with the entire abusive situation of high stakes testing.

As a human being she admits her limitations.

3rd gradeThis particular article simply must be shared from parent to parent to parent. Please don’t wait until the child you never thought would be harmed is harmed. Parents must help all children if they wish for others to help their own child.

Crush the multinational corporate and foundation investors before they crush your child. How? Refuse to keep financing them and their outwardly philanthropic foundations which are mere disguised greed sucking out obscene profits at the expense of your child.


Personal Note: There is growing concern about the impact on the hardest working, most capable children suddenly labeled as “losers” by the rigged numbers generated by CCSS compliant tests even though all children are harmed by stress, labeling, etc. Children suffering from depression and threatening to give-up or to inflict self-harm is growing. Please do not wait until you are faced with tragedy.
