NJ Parents! Take Charge of What the NJDOE Wants to Teach Your Children!

Last week, Senator Steve Oroho (R) and Senator Mike Testa (R) introduced a Senate Concurrent Resolution objecting to the obscene Sex Ed standards adopted on June 3, 2020 by the NJ Department of Education.  This new learning standard obligates all public schools to require 13-year-old students to define and describe several explicit sexual acts not related to intercourse. Schools have until 2022 to fully implement this new learning standard but may choose to start immediately. Sexual activists at Planned Parenthood and Garden State Equality applaud these new standards. As they ardently celebrate the systematic sexualization of children, we must equal their energy to praise Senator Oroho and Senator Testa for their leadership in opposing this learning standard and supporting parental rights in education. Please read Senate Concurrent Resolution 129 below and call their offices to express your gratitude. Tell their staff that you want to thank them for sponsoring SCR129! Senator Steve Oroho: (973) 300-0200 Senator Mike Testa: (609) 778-2012   SCR129: A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION opposing the State Board of Education revised New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Comprehensive Health and Physical Education on sex education. WHEREAS, Parents, as their child’s first and most important teachers, work hard to instill...

US Bishops advocate for emergency aid for Catholic schools – Vatican News

US Bishops and Cardinals call for ten percent of emergency education funding for scholarships to aid Catholic and non-public schools amid the ongoing crisis. By Fr. Benedict Mayaki, SJ Bishops in the United States have appealed to Congress for emergency aid to Catholic schools in the next federal Covid-19 emergency relief package. “As you come together to consider additional aid to help Americans through the crisis, we implore you to ensure that the education needs of all children are met, including children in Catholic and other non-public schools,” the Bishops appealed. “All schools and all children have been severely affected by this pandemic,” they noted. Therefore, “we ask for your support and leadership to provide assistance that specifically includes the non-public school community.” The letter issued on Thursday was co-signed by USCCB President, Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley of Boston, Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York, Cardinal Blasé J. Cupich of Chicago, Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin of Newark and Bishop Michael C. Barber of Oakland, the USCCB Committee Chairman on Catholic Education.

NJ Public School Curricula: Parents, Do You Know What Your Children are being Taught?

GO TO THIS WEBSITE TO FIND OUT MORE AND TO REGISTER FOR EVENTS: Schools are not the same today as they were forty years ago and will most likely not be the same in forty more years as we find them today. However, the task of the teacher will forever remain consistent and constant – shape the way the child views the world. Public education should be a viable and affordable method of education for families of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs. The curriculum should be fact based, neutral, and tested for academic excellence and accuracy. But tragically, as I stated in a previous email, public school is becoming less attractive to morally conservative families. Therefore, we have organized a Home School Interest Panel on Thursday, August 13 at 7pm. This will be a live webinar featuring Darren Jones, attorney for the Home School Legal Defense Association and Greg Golden, president of the North Jersey Home School Association. I will be moderating the panel as we discuss the following: Legal requirements in the state of NJ for compliance Laws and best practices regarding record keeping and grades for graduation Home School students acceptance into colleges and trade schools Diverse curriculum choices for different age groups Groups for...
