The Fedora Chronicles Radio Show Number 54: Common Core
My first interview is with Dr. Duke Pesta: the Academic Director of FreedomProject Education, has made numerous speaking engagements all across the country and over the radio, warning parents, teachers, and government officials about the dangers of Common Core.
From the bio on his website - Dr. Pesta is an engaging and animated speaker, whose experiences as an educational reformer, university professor, high school teacher, and the administrator of an online home school curriculum uniquely qualify him to address the current state of education in our country. Dr. Pesta has delivered over 400 talks on Common Core in 40 states. He has been interviewed on radio and television over 1500 times, including places as diverse as the United Kingdom, China, Canada, and Mexico.
My second interview is with Ann Marie Banfield who began working as Cornerstone’s Education Liaison in 2009. As an education activist, she took her decade long research on education to Concord. Working with experts in education from across the country, she offers valuable insight into problems and successes in education. She holds a B.A. in Business Management from Franklin University in Columbus Ohio. Ann Marie and her husband have three children and reside in Bedford, NH.
Freedom Project - or better or worse in our media driven culture, the best ideas only gain a foothold if presented and disseminated in media-savvy ways. Far too often, the winning message of conservatism loses ground because so much of our media is in the hands of progressives. At FreedomProject Academy—our online Classical school—we have already experienced tremendous success offering parents an educational alternative free from public school spin and indoctrination. Recognizing the urgent need to impact culture beyond the world of K-12 education, we proudly unveil FreedomProject Media: a venture that brings education, information, and inspiration to audiences of all ages through original programming, educational media, and current events-oriented content.
Cornerstone - Cornerstone is dedicated to preserving New Hampshire’s traditional values, limited government, and free markets through education, information, and advocacy. Our vision is to create an environment in which strong families—the foundation of our society—can lead New Hampshire into a new era of prosperity and strength. To this end, we address a wide variety of issues, each of which have a unique impact on New Hampshire families.
