Common Core: Academics or Indoctrination?
Guest Speaker: Randy Osborne
The Common Core standards are national education “reform” standards portrayed as state-led and voluntary that are being implemented by Washington DC trade groups funded by the federal government and unaccountable, private foundations. Join us as we learn how this will drive curriculum choices, student advancement and every aspect of your child’s school and personal life.
Our guest speaker Randy Osborne is a political consultant for Victory 360, a lobbyist for Acclaim Strategies and Eagle Forum, and is director of education for Heartland Research, as well as Florida Eagle Forum. Randy has developed an educational and get out the vote network with over 300 area churches and has spoken in over 200 churches about various topics, including the Church’s interaction with government and developing a Christian worldview. He received a BS degree from Tennessee Temple University in business administration with a minor in Bible and a BA from Western Illinois University.
