NATIONAL TEXTBOOK ACTIVIST: EVERY GOVERNOR IN AMERICA SHOULD FOLLOW LEAD OF FLORIDA GOV. RON DESANTIS IN REPEALING COMMON CORE FROM THEIR STATE’S PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.
(Nashville, TN) –February 12, 2019 –Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN) Founder and President Laurie Cardoza-Moore today issued a statement praising the decision of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to sign an executive order to repeal Common Core and remove inaccurate and biased textbooks from the state’s public school system. After elected officials in Florida falsely told citizens that Common Core had been repealed, Governor Ron DeSantis, fulfilling a campaign promise to Floridians, says Common Core has to go!
“In September of 2017, PJTN met with then Congressman Ron DeSantis of Florida to educate him about the propaganda and indoctrination in U.S. schools,” noted Cardoza-Moore. “Congressman DeSantis was shocked at the numerous examples of the inaccurate and biased textbooks that were wrought with history revisionism and did not reflect the values of our constitutional republic. At that time, Congressman DeSantis assured me that he would look into this growing threat in America's schools. Additionally, PJTN and Florida Citizens Alliance have been active in educating Florida citizens about the growing threat of Florida's Common Core state standards and the K-12 propaganda that does not teach critical thinking to our students, but instead teaches them what to think.”
She added: “Common Core has long represented the federal government’s illegal intrusion into public education. In 2012, PJTN launched a campaign to expose and remove an anti-Semitic textbook from a Tennessee school district that was being used in school districts throughout the U.S. That textbook was not only anti-Semitic, but also anti-American, anti-Israel and did not reflect the Judeo-Christian values our nation was founded upon. Pearson, a British-based textbook publishing company, is the architect of Common Core and publisher of the anti-Semitic textbook. As of today, 41 states have adopted Common Core.”
Additionally, several other Pearson textbooks have been found to be in violation of our U.S. and state constitutions favoring the religion of Islam over all others. Pearson has since acquired ownership of more than 80 textbook publishing companies in the United States and now claims a monopoly share of instructional materials delivered to K-12 students in America’s school system. This could prove disastrous on the future leadership of America.
“This is frightening,” noted Cardoza-Moore, “considering that Pearson shareholders include the governments of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Libya and Turkey. Combine this fact with Pearson’s use of leftist professors to re-write everything from American history, to the values of free enterprise and speech, to our Judeo-Christian foundation, leads to the reality that we are losing our children and grandchildren in a sea of disinformation and political and religious indoctrination fueled by Common Core.”
Cardoza-Moore says she is challenging the governors of every state to follow Governor DeSantis’ courageous leadership in Florida by dismantling the Common Core system once and for all, advocating for a massive reset to a classical approach to education, educational standards and instructional materials.
