# DEMAND BETTER

 
Last October hundreds of parents spoke out in opposition to Common Core.  It was just weeks before the election and the School Committee, including Mayor Gatsas, wanted this issue to go away.
The Board voted 13-1 to create Manchester's own Academic Standards. Mayor Gatsas promised:
After spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on their development, these new Manchester Academic Standards are nothing more than Common Core in disguise!!!  Two outspoken members of the NH Board of Education have confirmed that Manchester Academic Standards are basically Common Core!!!
 

http://anhpe.org/2014/07/10/manchester-cant-find-much-not-to-like-about-the-common-core-and-thats-a-problem/

 

Under Common Core parents and students will get:
  • Inferior quality standards compared to many other tested and proven standards.
  • Parents lose decision-making authority over their kids education.
  • Huge loss of local control for both parents and locally-elected school board.
  • Federal government data collection on our kids from kindergarten to the workforce.
Why did Manchester spend $100,000 and waste 2,000 teacher hours re-developing the same Common Core standards that parents do not want?  Why deceive parents by re-labeling them Common Core?
 
If this is not what you want for your kids or grandkids, or if you think that your tax money was wasted, please let the school board hear from you on:

  • What is Common Core? 
  • Is a national curriculum a good idea?
  • Why do we need online assessments? 
  • Is this going to be expensive? 
  • Why is the federal government funding  student databases, containing 400 data points on each child in order to track him from pre-school through the work force?

Common Core’s impact: The first picture of my daughter I ever hated

 

February 12, 2014

 NEW YORK - I’m a photographer. This is my daughter…and this is the first photo of her that I have ever hated.

Common Core tears

You may have already seen this image today. I posted it this morning on my business page and after returning from a session out in Syracuse, it has been shared over 400 times. I want to take a moment to explain this image so as those who do not know me, can understand how this image came to be.

I am a photographer, a hobby farmer, a child advocate and a mother of 3 elementary-aged children. This is my middle child in the photo … she is 7 and is in 2nd grade. My kindergartner and my 4th grader were already finished with their homework and had left the table. I had brought my camera in to work on my white balance skills while shooting in low light as I had a session the next morning to prep for.

After checking her work, I had found 2 math problems were incorrect. I tried to help her understand where she went wrong through her process but I don’t understand it myself and was not much help.

 

I told her to forget about it and we’d try again tomorrow but she became very upset that she could not get the answer and kept trying and trying to fix it. She is hard on herself as she very much wants to excel in school and not be pulled for extra help all of the time. I was talking to her and clicking my camera as I changed settings … it’s something that is very common in our household … and that is when I caught this image.

My daughter is incredibly strong.  My daughter is a 4-year cancer survivor.  She is a fighter with a resilient spirit.  It crushes me to see her cry; to see her struggle.  My daughter deserves a happy childhood.

Please know that 5 minutes later I had convinced her to leave the homework behind and go snuggle with her dad on the couch and watch some Olympics coverage. She is not neglected. She was not abused or left alone to cry. And this photo was not staged.

2014 NH Families for Education Incumbent Voting Ratings

2014
NH Families for Education
Incumbent Voting Ratings


Incumbent ratings were based upon specific 2013-2014 roll call votes.   House members were evaluated on 5 roll call votes on education bills.  Keep in mind that all five bills were voted upon during a single session day, so some members were "absent" and thus have no score.   Senate members had too few critical education bills that were acted upon with Roll Calls. Voice votes are rampant in the Senate.

HOUSE Roll Call Votes:

  1. HB 1239 relative to implementation of new  educational standards. This bill requires the state board of education to report on the fiscal impact of implementing the college and career readiness standards, also known as the common core standards, and prohibits the board from implementing any new common core standards until the board performs a fiscal analysis and conducts a public hearing in each executive council district.
  2. HB 1262 relative to student assessment data privacy. This bill restricts the collection, storage, and sharing of student assessment data by the U. S. Department of Education and the N. H. department of education, allowing school districts the ability to protect personally identifiable, private student data.
  3. HB 1432 delaying implementation of certain statewide assessments and studying the effects of delaying implementation of certain curriculum changes in the public schools.  This bill would delay the implementation of Smarter Balanced assessments by two years.
  4. HB 1496 relative to the objectivity and validity of student assessment materials. This bill provides that a school districts shall not be required to administer any assessment which is not valid and appropriate, or which cannot be objectively scored.
  5. HB 1508 terminating state participation in the common core educational standards. This bill restores local control, by terminating state participation in the implementation of Common Core, allowing school districts to decide whether or not to implement Common Core.

Student Information and Certain Student Data is Not Merely the "Product" of Education -- It's Actually "Property"

By Laurie Rogers

If data is just a "product," it is a thing individual to itself, which can be bought and sold, as a tea cup or a pair of shoes. The powers seem to see it that way, something they can use and market -- rather than as something inherently ours, which no one can take from us without our permission. Our personal data is being taken from us without our permission -- often without our knowledge, without a warrant, and in the face of our objections, but we have the right under the Constitution to keep property that belongs to us. If people take our property without our permission, the courts call that "theft."

In my view, the lifting of personal data is an affront to our right to be secure in our persons and effects, which makes the data collection in conflict with the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."


Not all of the data being collected is pertinent to student work, or even to the student. Data is being collected ON the student, and ON the student's family and even on the family's outside relationships and history. It isn't work; it's intrinsic to a human being. It's intrinsic to people who are not technically part of the public school system. That is a part of being secure in our persons.

Is it an actual theft and redistribution of personal property? I think so. I wonder if a court – even such a court as one might find today – would think so. I think it could be successfully argued by someone reasonably well versed in constitutional law.
