More Parents Choose Homeschooling Due To Common Core

As Common Core champions like Jeb Bush, Bill Gates, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce continue to attack parents, teachers, and taxpayers for what they claim are “myths” spread about the centralized standards initiative, many parents across the nation are not convinced.
They are refusing to subject their children to the stress, pressure, and confusion associated with the Common Core by opting out of the assessments aligned with the standards, or by withdrawing them from school and choosing homeschooling instead.
WHNT 19 News in Alabama reports a growing number of families making the decision to withdraw their children from school in order to homeschool because of “confusion,” “chaos,” and stress related to the Common Core standards.
“It [Common Core] has caused chaos in our house, and it’s not worth it,” said Lori Peden, who has withdrawn two of her children from McBride Elementary in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. “The teachers are not comfortable teaching it. They’re frustrated. Parents are upset, kids are not making good grades. That’s what I’ve seen.”
Peden said she never had plans to homeschool her children, but did so after she observed her son struggling with Common Core math assignments in which he was required to find and learn up to half a dozen different pathways to the same final answer, an endeavor that created confusion and constant stress.


School district to mother: No Common Core opt-outs, let us humiliate your kids
By Robby Soave.
An Ohio school district told a worried parent that she wasn’t allowed to opt-out of Common Core testing for her kids–and then it forced the kids to be weighed and measured as part of body mass index testing.
The angry mother, Sarah Lewis, said her request to opt her kids out of any school-sponsored Common Core testing was vigorously rejected by Celina City SchoolsSuperintendent Jesse Steiner, according to The Heartland Institute.
“[O]n the recommendation of legal counsel, I am rejecting your request for your child to ‘Opt Out’ of any and all testing,” wrote Steiner in an email to Lewis. “Your child will be expected to follow the same educational procedures as the rest of the student body.”
Lewis opposes implementation of the Common Core standards, a controversial set of curriculum guidelines and standardized testing currently being implemented in most states.

Hello Folks,

"Common Core" is just one of many reasons to home school your children, if you can:

Yeah, I totally agree with you that more parents choose homeschooling their kids. Another reason behind it is that the kids who go through early childhood education will significantly score well in academic education. I also trained my kids using fun and interactive activities. I used online teaching resources like http://www.kidsfront.com/word-picture-match.html for getting ideas for them.

Your experience and your input about home-schooling is appreciated, hasel. Thank you.

The site you link to for early childhood looks pretty good at first glance. One thing I look for in home-schooling curricula is whether or not it is Christian based ever since I heard that around 75% of them are just that: Christian indoctrination. Is that really what impressionable, White children need in their most formative years?

So, in the Word/Picture Match section it was good to see for the letter X there is an Xmas tree:

Unfortunately, in another coloring book section tagged Religion we find this:

[MLK, Jr. Day] is celebrated as day of service. People from all ages will come together and work for improving lives, bridge social barriers and establish national equality across nation.

All home-schooling curricula should be carefully evaluated as to their suitability for racially conscious home-schoolers.
There is bound to be at least one that is acceptable on every level. If not, then, with the help of no nonsense White home-schoolers, the National Alliance will come up with our own that fits our pro-White belief system.
