CLOSED | GIVEAWAY – Inside the Common Core: Its Creation and Effects

giveaway

School Choice Week (SCW), as I’ve mentioned in my previous post, is coming up next week: January 25-31. SCW provides an unprecedented opportunity, every January, to shine a positive spotlight on the need for effective education options for all children. 

And in light of this, we’re using the week before it to help promote Building the Machine (a documentary on the Common Core) and shed light on the creation and effects of the Common Core. With the Common Core directly affecting many public school students and having the potential to affect homeschooled students, we believe it is important for parents to be educated on this issue as they seek to choose the best schooling for their child.

A few great ways that YOU can participate in sharing about and educating yourselves on the Common Core is by:

CC - GIVEAWAY

To spread the word further about the Common Core, we’re giving away 5 copies of the Building the Machine DVD.

GIVEAWAY

Building the Machine DVD introduces the public to the Common Core States Standards Initiative (CCSSI) and its effects on our children’s education. This DVD set (the original documentary, bonus parent interviews, and six supplementary episodes) tells the Common Core’s story in the words of leading educational experts, including members of the Common Core Validation Committee, along with parents, teachers, and a social worker.

This DVD is sold in the HSLDA Store, along with other inspirational and educational resources for you and your family!

ENTERING THE GIVEAWAY

All you have to do to enter this giveaway is to leave a comment below (or email charity@hslda.org) with the reasons why you value the freedom to choose a school for your kids! Once you’ve commented, you can also choose from other optional steps below to gain more entries into the giveaway. These extra options will increase your chance of winning and further spread the word about the Common Core!

In the end, it is my desire for you to watch the film and decide for yourself where you stand on these issues. The choice is up to you, and we believe you should be well educated on the matter to come to a conclusion.
