About

Christian, conservative mom.  Hopeful America will be restored but realistic that it will never happen unless we stop the progressive indoctrination currently taking place in schools nationwide.

Every year, thousands of brainwashed youth graduate high school and register to vote, believing the lies their trusted teachers told them — that there is no God, that America has never been about freedom, and that people like Obama are the answer to our prayers.

I believe Jesus is the answer.

I do not advocate for public schools to teach religious doctrine (including my own). However, I have the right to teach my religious beliefs to my children; and no teacher, school or politician has the right to trample those beliefs.

Before you leave, please see my Take it Back! page for information on which public schools in the U.S. are actively indoctrinating and suggestions on how to start taking back education in your state.

If you do not have children in one of the schools listed on this site but your state is implementing the national Common Core State Standards, liberal indoctrination is coming your way.

Read about indoctrination through Common Core and the radicals behind it at Common Core / CSCOPE / CES Connection and at Name Names: The People Behind the Largest Progressive Indoctrination Movement in the U.S.

Please share with your friends and family and ask them to share.

  1. Oh? America is about freedom, but we have to believe in your god? How do you reconcile that?

  2. Really? They impose a position on religion? Other than that public schools have no place for promoting religion, they don’t have a position on it. I can say that as an educator who has worked in CES schools. As for parental authority, what exactly does that mean? Should we not teach students to think critically? To ask questions? To challenge ideas? These are key to a good education, but some parents don’t like their children to learn this because it means they (the parents ideas) will be challenged.

    Ideas that can’t be challenged and defended are not worth keeping.

    • Critical thinking is great — if students are given truths and actual facts to think on. Not lies and extreme bias. I don’t have a problem with critical thinking or questioning or students coming to their own conclusions when presented with real unbiased truth. I do have a problem with educators pushing communism, humanism, atheism on children. That undermines parents rights to raise their own children and instill their own morals and beliefs. Exposing kids to things that are opposed to a parents religious beliefs also undermines parental authority. I’m sure there are good educators in CES schools but it was created and still largely functions with a mission “to cultivate in its students qualities of character and citizenship… to be active participants in a democratic society”. Whose idea of a democratic society?? The commumists and maoists who work with and speak and teach in these schools? Many people have many different ideas of what constitutes a ‘democratic society’. Not your job to shape my child into YOUR idea of what a good citizen should be. There are examples of educators violating the constitutional rights of students and parents on this site. This post contains several examples. https://danetteclark.wordpress.com/2012/11/18/where-occupywallstreet-really-began-obamas-hand-in-the-movement/

  3. In this country, it seems that one persons truths and “actual facts” are another person’s lies. How many CES schools have you taught in? Can you cite specifically what about the principles of CES schools is BS?

  4. It has nothing to do with the 9 (10) principals, Mark. See my last response – I added to it. By the way, thank you for being civil with your comments.

  5. I never said you have to believe in my God or that public schools should promote my religion. By law, public school educators are not allowed to impose a position on religion, one way or the other. The Coalition of Essential Schools does not adhere to that law, and in other ways undermine parental authority — both violations of the student and parents’ constitutional rights.

  6. mark entime seems to be a troll, he uses alinsky rules. “blah blah blah, i know you are but what am I?” so sad.

    thank you danette keep up the good work. keep trolls away from our children, they are creepy!!!!!

  7. A lot of people have overactive imaginations. You are sadly mistaken in a great deal of what you post here. So much for helping all children learn and compete in a free market. Thank God there are private schools. Wait, many protestants are fearful of Catholic doctrine too, especially Texans. After all those bad Jesuits brought southern slaves and Mestizo’s to Christ, which forbid them from being enslaved. Do your homework, and look a little deeper into history. By the way, my very conservative, Christian professors indoctrinated me into the deeper truth of the Civil War, and American History. Separation of church and state mean anything? I believe Jesus is the answer as well, and thankfully we have alternatives to the public school system. We have our homes, our book, our churches, our synagogues, our right to live and love as we believe. You would achieve a greater Godly impact by turning your attention to what is really educating and raising our children, and believe me, it is not our school systems. It is amazing how much time all this blogging research takes. Parents these days spend more time on the internet, using their cell phones, etc., then reading to their children.

  8. Not that it’s any of your business (although many leftists do seem to think how people raise their children is their business) but this website is a culmination of research I have gathered in my spare time over the last 4 years. I am just getting around to writing about these people and tying in CSCOPE because I have been very busy raising my children. Now, what does separation of church and state have to do with anything on this site?

  9. By the way, I’m not a Texan

  10. In answer to most of your statements: This is not a Christian nation. It is pluralistic, and anything that espouses “Christian” values (by name) in public education or in our government is, by nature, wrong. Not just illegal. Wrong. And the Common Core is by no means liberal. It is a one-size-fits-all prescriptive measure for teachers to follow. I find it alarmingly conservative in its approach to ideas and unimaginative in its process. It was developed by conservative bureaucrats,

    Talk to a teacher. Teachers (regardless of their political or religious leanings) are quitting in droves since they are not being treated as professionals and forced to teach repetitive, weak lessons on repetitive, weak standards that revolve around repetitive, weak tests (and lots of them). Successful schools don’t give endless tests. Everyone knows that.

    Maoists in schools? Please. And atheism, humanism? Where did you get that? Do you know what that means? Nothing is being forced upon students by teachers or the bone-headed corporate-educational complex called Common Core except a poor education that is insulting to the majority of teachers in this country (and rejected wholeheartedly by teachers’ unions nationwide). Conservative thinkers are always mandating magical cures with moneyed influence behind them. Let teachers teach.

    I’m a liberal educator, tired of rants on right and left about Common Core. It’s simply a bad set of rules mandated by states to teachers, paid for by corporations and Bill Gates. Our governmental functions and our political actions are too influenced by rich corporations and individuals. That’s the problem with Common Core. And, overall, that’s the problem with democracy today. The plutocracy is feeding the inequality of representation and distribution of wealth in this country.

    Our democracy is founded on one simple thing that only 34% of the registered voters in this country do: VOTING. If 100% of registered voters actually voted, and stealth money was forbidden in elections, watch what would happen. It may surprise you, but the revolution in this country will come from the LEFT, from the people who know what the responsibility of a representative government is: to provide for the common welfare of its people. To do so means balancing the scales of racial, financial, and societal inequality, including religious tolerance. The middle class, regardless of its political views, needs to stand up and be counted. Racist, plutocratic, and bought-and-paid-for politicians (Mitch McConnell comes to mind) need to be sent home.

    Rants without solutions and without a thorough understanding of what democracy really is disturb sme. You’re awfully disturbing in the your narrow and ignorant views of how things work or should work in your imagination.

  11. Screw your moderation. Is this an open forum?

  12. It doesn’t seem like those who rant about the Common Core have taken the time to read any part of the standards. Now if only Dannette Clark, or our elected officials on both sides of the isle, could meet the following 11th and 12th grade standards. If not, then simply enroll in some sort of charter/private school that only looks at the world through one single lens…because that’s what public education and developing an informed citizenry is all about I guess.

    And now for some standards…
    The CCR anchor standards and high school grade-specific standards work in tandem to define college and career readiness expectations—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity.

    Comprehension and Collaboration:
    CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.11-12.1
    Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 11-12 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
    CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.11-12.1.A
    Come to discussions prepared, having read and researched material under study; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence from texts and other research on the topic or issue to stimulate a thoughtful, well-reasoned exchange of ideas.
    CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.11-12.1.B
    Work with peers to promote civil, democratic discussions and decision-making, set clear goals and deadlines, and establish individual roles as needed.
    CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.11-12.1.C
    Propel conversations by posing and responding to questions that probe reasoning and evidence; ensure a hearing for a full range of positions on a topic or issue; clarify, verify, or challenge ideas and conclusions; and promote divergent and creative perspectives.
    CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.11-12.1.D
    Respond thoughtfully to diverse perspectives; synthesize comments, claims, and evidence made on all sides of an issue; resolve contradictions when possible; and determine what additional information or research is required to deepen the investigation or complete the task.
    CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.11-12.2
    Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) in order to make informed decisions and solve problems, evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source and noting any discrepancies among the data.

    Evaluate a speaker’s point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric, assessing the stance, premises, links among ideas, word choice, points of emphasis, and tone.

    SINCE WHEN IS THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS CONSIDERED PROGRESSIVE?

    • Since when is ELA a class on the democratic process? The answer: Since progressives hi-jacked a course meant for the teaching of reading comprehension, spelling, and composition and turned it into a course that “looks at the world” politically and morally, which you just proved by referencing “the democratic process” with regard to CCSS ELA.
      More specifically, for example, since Deborah Meier, Linda Darling Hammond, and several other self-identifying progressive educators, through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium, identified an “accomplished English language art teacher” as follows:
      One that “instills in their students the desire and the ability to use communication skills to participate in the democratic process through such activities as writing editorials, commenting on blogs, and creating letters to public officials.” “Teachers help students identify opportunities to explore, promote, or defend the causes with which they identify.”
