The Honorable Pete Sessions
Chairman of the House Rules Committee
United States House of Representatives
2233 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, D.C.  20515-4332

Dear Chairman Sessions:

This correspondence is in reference to your letter of February 1, 2016 which states, “The Every Student Succeeds Act includes major reforms that will stop Washington from imposing Common Core or any other academic standards on states.” 

Senator Lamar Alexander has stated that ESSA repealed the Common Core mandate while you have stated that Common Core has been defunded by the Omnibus Bill.  However, a Common Core mandate has never existed for the federal government but rather for the states. Neither of you is being truthful with the American people.

Congress has repealed the No Child Left Behind Act only to replace it with a far worse centralized control of education -- Every Student Succeeds Act

Congress has admitted that Common Core now will be federal law and that it is not about academic learning but rather changing the beliefs, values, behavior, and worldviews of students.  In a nutshell, the government is conducting psychological profiling of our children.

GOP’s ‘Christmas Miracle’ for President Obama

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. | January 11, 2016 Education Views

The American people have voted in massive numbers for Republican congressional candidates over the past several elections. Yet nothing has changed in Washington. GOP leadership and establishment Republicans once again betrayed their constituents as they voted to codify Obama’s radical education agenda into federal law.

Common Core Embedded in ‘No Child Left Behind’ Reauthorization

By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. | July 6, 2015 Education Views

On July 7, 2015 the U.S. Congress begins the debate on bills to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Act, currently known as ‘No Child Left Behind’ (NCLB).  The 792 page Senate bill, “Every Child Achieves Act of 2015,” clearly moves the U.S. toward nationalized education.  The bill is an unconstitutional, invasive, and expensive expansion of federal control of education.
