If you’ve attended any of the school board sponsored cheerleading sessions on Common Core or read through their website propaganda, you may be looking for information that addresses the concerns.
Here are some great YouTube videos and websites that lay out the case against Common Core and provide basic information on the issues and the standards.
You won’t get a sense of the issues by reading the standards, but I’ve included a link to them as well so you can read them first-hand. Note that most of the issues are over what is possible/probable in the future as the standards and content morph, but are not able to be controlled or changed locally. Parents, teachers, and even state school boards are powerless to control education once they’ve implemented Common Core. The only hope is to reject it.
Parents and taxpayers need to take a stand as individuals and organized citizen groups to let the school boards and legislators know that we want control of our kids education.
