Although we are late to the game, we have picked up speed in the battle against Common Core faster than we ever imagined. Many of us had been hearing about Common Core for a long time but, like most, thought it all sounded so great. I had tried to approach FreedomWorks over two years ago about Agenda 21 and how it will affect education. I thought FreedomWorks would be interested in helping with my national Agenda 21 group from the perspective of education. I knew there was a plan put in place from the Clinton years to circumvent our education system and then again with the No Child Left Behind Act, but did not connect Common Core because of the lack of details and information. I first became involved when people in my national Agenda 21 coalition started telling me about CSCOPE in Texas. In December 2012 I started reaching out to others in Tennessee and some were coming to me about Common Core. I then, as did many others, started a crash course in Common Core. I created a presentation, set up a website (Tennessee Against Common Core) and started talking to my national Agenda 21 group about Common Core. Another member of our team set up a Facebook page (Stop Common Core in Tennessee). What really opened my eyes to Common Core was an article I read about Bill Ayers and his involvement with Common Core. That was the point that I said there must be more to this than we are being told. And boy was I right.
