If you are here at LAF because you have certain convictions about family, education, the foundations of your freedoms and liberties, than this film is why you are here. THIS, is why you are here. Submitted by a concerned reader, a young one at that, who still hopes, who still knows why we’re here and what we are called to live and fight for. If you aren’t going to watch this, if you can’t make yourself watch this, if you don’t have time to share this then look around and question why. This is the sort of film that will make you look in the mirror and ask yourself what you stand for. Comment, and share.

From one of our readers comes a plea for the rest of us to educate ourselves about what we’re really up against with the Common Core curriculum and initiative.

Hello LAF,
My name is D*****, I’ve been following your blog since I was 16 (I’ve just turned 18). I am emailing you about the Common Core, everyone should know about this. It isn’t just harmful to public schooled kids, but also to private schooled, home-schooled, and even the freedom of other people. I urge you to PLEASE watch this video (link below) when you get an opportunity and spread the word! Christians especially need to stick together on this, we’re in a spiritual war and must fight together, uplift and comfort one another. And since I have the chance, I must also thank you for starting and maintaining the LAF blog. It has definitely given me some hope that there are other true believers out there.
God bless,
D*****

But Common Core is more than dumb math strategies, the exposure of moral depravity, and ambiguous literature studies and it has everything to do with homeschool families as well as those who are utilizing government schooling.
