Common Core could be the future of your children's education, but the majority of parents in America probably don't know a whole lot about it.
Did you know, for instance, that as part of the educational curriculum, a litany of "data points" are set to be mined?
Kyle Olson of the Education Action Group said on TheBlaze TV Thursday that these points include "blood type, voting status of their parents, religious affiliation, their income...things that have nothing to do with their children's education."
Olson was part of a group of parents, lawmakers, and concerned citizens who attended what was described as a "national strategy session" on TheBlaze TV about how to best explain and prevent the implementation of Common Core.
"Common Core is kind of nebulous for a lot people," David Barton explained. "They know what it is, but they can't define it...What are the key points that will resonate with most Americans?"
One parent, Tammy Slaten, explained that when she started informing herself about the curriculum she sent an email to other parents in her child's class.
To her shock, she was "called to the principal's office" where she was told to stop, and to not ask the teachers what they think. More than that, the principal allegedly told her that they are state employees and whether Common Core is "good or bad," it is their priority.
"You take that attitude and combine it with data mining and what does it suggest?" Barton asked.

But how can concerned citizens stop the implementation of Common Core, an education program that removes control from the parents and communities and turns it over to the state and federal government?
State Senator Margaret Dayton (R-Utah) said it needs to be reiterated that the program violates the United States constitution.
One parent put the issue in another perspective: "Do you want the same government that has given us Eric Holder, Benghazi, [the] IRS enemies list, Fast and Furious, ObamaCare -- do you want that government to take control of what your precious child is going to learn in school?"
