Join the Fight to Stop Common Core

 

    In 2010, the State Education Department secured Race to the Top Funding from the U.S. Department of Education.  In exchange for $700 Million in funding, the state education department made various commitments related to educational standards, testing, a teacher evaluation system, and data collection. 

    As part of this, the Common Core Standards were adopted—without legislative approval—and the implementation of such has been nothing short of a disaster.

    As the father of twin, school-aged children, I understand the need to prepare our kids for success, but not at the expense of a quality education. I don’t want to see my girls lose their love of learning at such a young age. It’s time to stop Common Core for the sake of our education system, our educators and our children.
