They met with Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey.
These spiritual leaders read aloud to him some of the Common Core suggested exemplar text for high school students.
(Legislators, remember when TN Parents tried to send you the some snippets from The Bluest Eyeby Toni Morrison, but the government email filters wouldn't even allow it to get to you because it was so profane? We had to add all sorts of **** to get it through to your inboxes. But it is a perfect example for high school juniors to read??? The same people that wrote the Common Core standards think so).
Anyway, Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey turned red in embarrassment and finally said, "Stop! I don't want to hear that cr*p!"
Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey then pledged his word, as a man of INTEGRITY, that he would not only get Common Core and PARCC out of our public schools in TN, but as "a man of INTEGRITY," he told those 12 Ordained Ministers that he would go even further than the House bill that had just overwhelmingly been amended to delay it 2 years. He would do even better than that. He said multiple times that "I am a man of my word. I am a man of integrity."
Those men of God believed and trusted Ron Ramsey. So did Rep. Womick who was told that the Conference Committee was including the delay of Common Core & PARCC and including strict wording to protect our children.
or a deliberate move by the Governor's puppets to force them to keep quiet?
until the last day of Legislative session. Today.
TN Parents won't keep quiet. We'll broadcast loud & clear which liars need to be voted out of office. They have lost our trust. We'll broadcast which politicians voted against our children.
Legislators: when you go home, exhausted after this Legislative session... will you be able to sleep at night knowing you have sold out our children to corporate interests?
