Dear Friends,

Want to start an emotional discussion? Ask people what they think of "Common Core."

The new federal education standards being advanced by the Obama Administration are of great concern not only to parents and teachers but all who fear big government intrusion in American education. As President Eisenhower said years ago, federal aid to education leads to dependence by states and localities on Uncle Sam and also to Washington-based control of what's taught. His prophecy is coming true before our eyes.

FRC has just published three new studies of Common Core that will help you understand what's really happening and what's at stake. Written by our talented Common Core Coalition Manager, attorney Sarah Perry, you can download these relatively brief but thorough and carefully-researched documents at no cost:

Ten Things to Know About Common Core

Common Core State Standards: Mathematics

Common Core State Standards: English Language Arts & Literacy

Parents, not the government, are entrusted by God with the education and care of children. FRC is committed to keeping it that way, and we value your partnership with us in this effort.

P.S. Be sure to watch a presentation by Arina Grossu, Director of FRC's Center for Human Dignity, on the current state of euthanasia initiatives in the U.S. and how you can oppose them.
