Statements from Early Childhood Health and Education Experts who warned, Common Core was not appropriate for Early Learners: http://www.allianceforchildhood.org/sites/allianceforchildhood.org/files/file/Comments%20from%20signers%2003_18_10.pdf
Will these school boards ever learn that they don’t score any points by arresting people who merely want to be heard?
GILFORD — The man who objected to one of his 9th grade daughter’s reading assignments at a School Board meeting last year is suing the local police lieutenant who arrested him and removed him from the meeting.
WATCH TO THE END!!!!!

How many more warnings from professionals will it take before our elected Representatives say: ENOUGH. NO MORE?
One teacher called this CHILD ABUSE. Parents better wake up!
For those of you who have been wondering what happened to William Baer, the Gilford NH man who dared speak up to the school board regarding the pornographic material they were requiring his daughter to read in honors class, all charges have been dismissed.
Read about it in William’s own words… Court Order William Baer December 2014
There is nothing wrong with learning about water shortages and how to mitigate them, if you are planning on becoming an engineer who deals with that sort of thing.
But in middle school and high school, the UN influence is very clearly being promoted in Bedford: they seek to politicize the children and get them to serve the UN’s agenda and its Millennium Development Goals, their worldwide plan for wealth redistribution.
“Just because we don’t have a water shortage here in New Hampshire doesn’t mean that many parts of the world aren’t dealing with water issues,” said science teacher Heather Brunelle. “We tell them all the time, these are going to be the big debates of the next century, over water access, water rights, and the next big global wars will be over water access.”
The faculty hopes this newfound awareness their students have will have a lasting impact, and possibly inspire some to pursue the Peace Corps or other volunteer endeavors.
Volunteer endeavors? What about supporting ones self?
Education is no longer about being successful enough to support oneself, but how to intervene on behalf of private agendas, even those of groups who are NOT our government.
We bet most of the parents and taxpayers in Pittsfield and Manchester (two Annenberg partners in NH – there is also a Youth Organizers United in Manchester) have no idea they need to deal with a PR Firm created by an NGO/foundation out of UNH (Carsey Institute) to filter their communication to the various school boards.
The legality of this is questionable. The truth of the matter is, these “ideas” are NOT coming from the people or the parents, but from the foundations themselves. Most of the parents in these areas likely have no idea that the law is being overridden and their rights are being usurped.
The next new fad is “Restorative Justice”.
Previous nonsense. “Student Centered Learning” (or, letting the inmates run the asylum).
This “disarmament” poster was used in a school in Connecticut and shows more unconstitutional ideas being served up to our children.

GILFORD — The town of Gilford continues to want to prosecute the “disorderly conduct” case of Billy Baer, a parent who dared to stand up and speak out at a school board meeting about the inappropriate reading material that was assigned to his daughter. (Search for Baer on this blog for more background info)
The school board ordered him to be removed by police and charged.
Even after a motion to dismiss was made by the defendant’s attorney, the Gilford school board continues to want to prosecute. It’s one thing for the school board to ask a cop to remove somebody from the meeting, but why on earth would the town continue to prosecute it instead of just dropping the case?
This is the message they apparently wish to convey to parents: If you dare speak out against material that is inappropriate, pornographic, or politically biased, and in this case the material was all of the aforementioned, you will be censored and punished.
For those of you who have seen the video of what happened, it was fairly clear that Baer’s was a minor interruption if anything, and he hardly warranted being arrested.
