HUNTLEY AREA TEA PARTY
and Bruno Behrend
“Common Core: What we need to know”
One of the more hotly debated subjects in America right now is the subject of Common Core National Education standards; and sadly too many of us know very little about Common Core and its dangerous impact upon our children, our families, and our future here in Illinois.
The Obama Administration has incentivized states to accept national education standards—called Common Core—with billions of taxpayer dollars in federal grants and waivers from the onerous provisions of No Child Left Behind. States that have agreed to adopt Common Core, including Illinois, have relinquished authority over the content taught in local schools to national organizations and bureaucrats in Washington.
Common Core is also a serious intrusion into our private lives as it removes the ability of parents and teachers to direct academic content, and it will have a harmful effect on the educational choices available to families.
Teresa Stremlau is an ordained minister who founded “In His Precious Name Ministries” in 2006. Her business career spans over 40 years in office and accounting management, however, in September 2012, she retired to step out into full-time ministry.
In Spring of 2008, she found herself driven to educate herself in political issues. One area that concerned her was how the federal government had manipulated the education system to implement a program called Common Core State Standards. Ms Stremlau has much to tell us.
Bruno Behrend, J.D., is a senior fellow for education policy at The Heartland Institute. He is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, where he earned his degree in Finance. He earned his J.D. from IIT-Kent College of Law in 1990, and is licensed to practice law in the state of Illinois.
After decades of research, education, and dedicated activism for school choice with very few legislative victories to show for it, the time has arrived when genuine breakthroughs are finally about to occur. People are beginning to wake up and are anxious to know more today.
Come and learn important facts about Common Core: the impact and lasting effect that is coming upon us in Illinois, what alternatives are available and happening in other states across America. Knowledge and its applications here are critical to our survival as a free nation.

TEA...Taxed Enough Already! We are a non-partisan group of concerned citizens, based in the Huntley area, part of a national network of Americans dedicated to core principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets. We support policies that lead to balanced budgets, smaller government, job creation in the private sector and a reduction of national debt to relieve the burden of the next generation.
We serve the communities of Huntley, Algonquin, Crystal Lake, Hampshire, LITH, and Woodstock. Our driving conviction:
It is important to change....otherwise, we will get where we are going!
As a coalition of citizens, we are committed to advocating and promoting policies at federal, state and local levels consistent with our core principles. It's all about policies, not politics.
