Parent Arrested At School Meeting For Speaking Out

“Parental frustration was mounting as our questions were still going unanswered.”

One parent, Robert Small, decided to stand up to the panel and get some answers…


 

“Parents, take control. We’re sick of this. This is not a CNN political game. This is a public town hall… Listen, don’t stand for this. You’re sitting here like cattle. You have questions. Confront them. They don’t want to do it in public… Parents, you need to question these people…”

-Robert Small, parent, arrested for speaking out and questioning the establishment

Questions from the audience of about 160 people, which consisted of parents, PTA members, teachers, and school administrators, were submitted ahead of time to the Superintendent of Baltimore County Public Schools – Dr. Dallas Dance, and Lillian Lowery – Maryland Superintendent, regarding issues relating to “Common Core”, the new federal curriculum for Maryland schools.

 
Although Common Core was adopted by the Maryland Department of Education 3 yrs ago,

in exchange for a quarter Billion dollar federal incentive grant through “Race To The Top” which is conditioned upon adherence to Common Core,

parents weren’t informed until after its implementation. There was no transparency or even the courtesy of notifying parents much less consulting them.

 
Parents are up in arms, and a meeting was held to supposedly address the questions of parents. During the meeting, it was realized that the questions which were submitted – were to a large extent re-worded or were not being addressed at all. One parent couldn’t stand the charade any longer and stood up at his chair to demand an answer to his own question.

His question was, “I want to know how many parents here are aware that the goal of the Common Core standards isn’t to prepare kids for full-fledged universities, it’s to prepare them for community college…..Parents, take control. We’re sick of this. This is not a CNN political game. This is a public town hall… Listen, don’t stand for this. You’re sitting here like cattle. You have questions. Confront them. They don’t want to do it in public…. Parents, you need to question these people….Do the research, it’s online.”

This question prompted immediate action by the panel as a security guard forced him out of the room, where he was apparently subsequently arrested.
