"DEEP DIVE" - Find Out About COMMON CORE JULY 20TH 9:30 a.m.

“Deep Dive” at the Estero Community Center on JULY 20th Find Out About COMMON CORE

We are lucky to have Dr. Karen Effrem in our SWFL area (Port Charlotte). Check out her website: . Included in one of her articles on the website is a link to an article put out by the Department of Education discussing the tools they are considering using to get psychologic information from your children.  Once you view it, you may wish to keep a copy of the article she mentions as a source document: Promoting Grit, Tenacity, and Perseverance: Critical Factors for Success in the 21st Century I’m pretty sure your neighbors, friends and family would be very interested about this…Start informing them now.

Come to the “Deep Dive” at the Estero Community Center on JULY 20thfor a 90 minute presentation by Dr. Karen Effrem. The SWFL Citizen’s Alliance is sponsoring this event.  This is a by invitation only meeting.  At one time it was open to the public and I put a 'save the date' invitation on the 9/12 website.  For that reason, you are sort of 'grandfathered' in to be able to attend this event.  You MUST reserve your spot to be able to attend the event.  You can either call me, Kathy Doan, at [masked] or e-mail me at [masked] to reserve.  It will be on a first come, first served basis.

Call, e-mail or write your Florida Representative & Senator, School Board member or county commissioner to to tell them you want them to be at this event! Get the message out. We will be calling them to invite them personally, sending them an invitation plus following up with another phone call to find out if they will be attending.

At this point in the debate, citizens are no longer satisfied with their representatives not being knowledgeable on Common Core and the implication on our families and our future...

In Liberty, Kathy Doan

    The job of spreading the word about the dangers of Common Core is just beginning. Please see our web site and help us visit or contact legislators, write letters to the editor and get our organizations mobilized to move some legislation to STOP COMMON CORE! Thanks to all who attended!

    I left feeling very informed about a topic that will essentially effect the direction that America is turning. It is frightening to see the under lying agenda brought forth, yet it is encouraging to recognize and see people who are taking a stand to derail this train.
