Common Core updates

May 26 Mon - Happy Memorial Day

The new Common Core imposed by federal beaureacrats, would weaken our state's education system, which is already the strongest in the country. The Massachusetts Teachers Association (M.T.A.), which represents 110,000 teachers, recently elected an Anti-Common Core President, Barbara Madeloni, on May 10th. A clinical psychologist-turned-teacher, Madeloni was elected 681 to 584.

This vote shows that even the liberal education establishment is beginning to understand how bad Common Core is, but the message hasn't reached Beacon Hill power-brokers. Recently the legislature voted along party-lines to continue funding and implementing the Common Core. Every Republican voted to defund it, and every Democrat voted in favor.

The MA Dept. of Education is holding informational sessions on Common Core. This is an opportunity to voice your concerns and get answers to your questions. Please consider attending the one nearest you, and invite your legislator to attend!

Dale O’Leary, author of “One Man, One Woman, A Catholic’s Guide to Defending Marriage”, (available at Shower of Roses in W.Boylston), has written a well-researched, thorough and compassionate defense of our Church’s teaching that marriage is a life-long union between one man and one woman. I continue quoting from this work to assist our outreach to our brothers and sisters who have Same-Sex Attraction, SSA.
“For most people. This process of sexual identification proceeds without a problem, and by age three, if asked, ‘are you a boy or a girl/’ the child will look incredulous, as though the questioner must surely be blind, and reply confidently, ‘I’m a boy!’ or ‘A girl, of course!’.”
“As children grow, they find they have more in common with children of their own sex than with children of the other sex. Same-sex friendships become extremely important as the child consolidates his sense of masculinity or her sense of femininity. At this stage, familiarity leads to friendship, whereas complementarity – feeling essentially different from another person – creates mystery, which some believe is the foundation of romantic attachment. In adolescence, sexual desires appear and become associated with that mystery.”

Jun 29 Sun afternoon MCFL 28th Annual Walk for Mothers And Children, on the Boston Common, Parkman Bandstand. Registration: 1:30 pm, Walk starts: 2:30 pm, pre-register/make a donation

Mark Fisher, Candidate for Republican Nomination for Governor of Massachusetts, will be on the Primary Ballot this September 9th. The MA Republican Party platform reads that they believe every abortion is a tragedy, while the Devalue Democrats want our taxes to pay for abortion. The clear Pro-Life vote is in the Republican Primary Sept. 9.

The Democrats own this state, but that means they own all the problems. They can't blame Republicans for anything! Now, I'm going to make them own up to all the problems they've created."

Please help me carry the fight to them with an online donation or a donation to the "Committee to Elect Fisher"
mailed to 13 Elm St. Auburn, MA 01501. Let's show them that we're in this to win it!

Looking forward to meeting you on the campaign trail.
Mark Fisher
Candidate for Republican Nomination for Governor of Massachusetts
