Connections Academy/Choice and Charters

“It’s clear we here in Maine are being led down the road to destruction with what we now refer to in education restructuring as “taxpayer funded corporate private schools”. The Maine Heritage Policy Center will have two speakers on July 31 celebrating Friedman Legacy Day which they do every year. You know, the free market crap? The two speakers are Heidi Sampson (Maine State Board and also a member of the Charter School Board) and Amy Volk, state Rep. for Scarborough and Board Chair for the Maine Connections Academy (conflict of interest for sure) which is the virtual charter school opening this fall. Sampson and Volk are against the Common Core. My question is are they that stupid to not know that both Maine Charter schools whether brick and mortar or virtual use the Core. Connections academy is in forty states and the curriculum comes from Pearson which is Common Core (call them if you doubt 1-800-783-3668). Sampson ran around the state speaking against the Core and even held a rally in the state house which I attended and my state Rep Ellie Espling gave a speech in support of the event. The answer to my question is a simple No. The Common Core is a diversion used to bring in Corporate Private Schools using tax money with no accountability and they know it! Elected form of government is at risk!

Every taxpayer needs to know the agenda…….no local control and taxation without representation. Please forward to your list and take a close look at these attachments.”
