As I have been championing for the last week, we all need to get educated on the ‘Common Core Curriculum’ before we start debating the pros and cons. So, I brought it up at the May 13, 2013 School Board meeting — as a request, after I was told by them what I can or cannot do in ‘Public Input’. That was fine. All I required was to make a request. That was duly noted. I want Jane Cormier to also do a presentation at that same meeting so that the school administration and her can sort out where they stand relative to each other. Jane’s husband, who is a School Board member, was very much in support. So this is all good.
Since the supposed ‘fact’ that the ‘Common Core Curriculum’ mandates that students wear a federally-monitored biometric bracelet was brought up at Jane Cormier’s Saturday meeting, I demanded that Devanee, who is being homeschooled, be provided with one — since I do not want her to be the only kid in Alton that was left behind. The Principal and Superintendent ‘deny’ any knowledge of such bracelets. How can that be? Is it possible that the biometric bracelet is a red herring? We will find out, though the meeting might not happen till July or August when most parents are enjoying the vacation. But, I will get to the bottom of this biometric bracelet issue.
As I said at the meeting, I am surprised that they are talking about a bracelet. Why don’t they just implant a chip? Kids will not be able to tamper with it.
