If Democrat Assemblywoman Margaret Markey has her way, all public school students in New York will be required to undergo repeated mandatory psychological evaluations. As proposed, Markey’s bill would require that families allow their children to be subjected to such testing twice in elementary school and twice in secondary grades.
Introduced last October, the disturbing proposal was referred to the education committee on January 8, 2014. The bill, AO 8186, would amend current law requiring physical health examinations to include the following language:
EACH SUCH CERTIFICATE SHALL ALSO STATE THAT A PSYCHOLOGICAL EXAMINATION WAS PERFORMED AND THAT THE CHILD IS MENTALLY FIT TO PERMIT ATTENDANCE AT SCHOOL.
Additionally, each student’s entire health history must be made available to the school district upon request. This news interview* (video) provides background.
Those who are paying attention are aware that the Obama administration’s implementation of the Common Core left-wing “standards” include propagandizing American students. The scheme also enables data mining of student information, including out-of-school activities and their parent’s political involvement and religious beliefs.
Since the name Common Core has become so incendiary, Arizona’s Gov. Jan Brewer and Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal have deceptively collaborated to re-christen it “Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards,” in an effort to make it more palatable to the unsuspecting.
Many will remember this shocking video of a father merely questioning the implementation of Common Core getting hauled out of a meeting by security — and arrested! The left is in this for the long haul and will not only go to any lengths to silence dissent — they want to control our children from the earliest ages. Obama has stated America needs to start enrolling 4-year-olds in all-day pre-K to ensure children are “better prepared for the demands of the global economy” and to help parents save on “child-care costs.”
