What do you know about Common Core Standards that BJU is now using?
I am a public school teacher of 25 years and for the last 7 years, homeschooling. The Common Core standards, developed by federal govt and corporate entities is a dumbed down system. Only two educators were invited to review or validate the writing of the standards, highly-respected Dr. Sandra Stotsky from Massachusetts and Dr. Jim Millgram, Stanford University and on the governing council of NASA. Neither educator signed off on these standards stating that they will put children 2 years behind present expectations. The standards are one-size-fits-all and have jumped from public school to homeschool through companies that have chosen to rewrite their curriculum to include Common Core and all of its anti-American and anti-religious propaganda.
I hope I have sparked a little interest in understanding something about the educational approach your children will receive with Bob Jones. Perhaps you will want to read and become more informed about CCSS. If you’d like more information, please connect with the Parents and Educators Against Common Core Standards at their website or on facebook. You can also go to The Educational Freedom Coalition website or on facebook to find out which curriculums has rewritten their books to include Common Core.
