Rick Scott will be in Fort Myers doing a fundraiser at
the Marina at Edison Ford, (2360 W 1st St in Ft Myers 33901.) We will be going to protest Common Core and show him that we take our children's future and their education seriously and that we reject this top-down education model that is void of free market competition and accountability.Common Core is part of a federally backed “payoff” which allows the participating states to become eligible for funds under the Race to the Top program, a massive earmark contained within the federal government stimulus packages.
Please circulate this, bring friends, family and signs.

"The information collected will be more than sensitive; much of it will also be completely unrelated to education. Data collected will not only include grades, test scores, name, date of birth and social security number, it will also include parents’ political affiliations, individual or familial mental or psychological problems, beliefs, religious practices and income.
In addition, all activities, as well as those deemed demeaning, self-incriminating or anti-social, will be stored in students’ school records. In other words, not only will permanently stored data reflect criminal activities, it will also reflect bullying or anything perceived as abnormal. The mere fact that the White House notes the program can be used to “automatically demonstrate proof of competency in a work setting” means such data is intended to affect students’ futures."
