Committee should pass Senate Bill 136 and rethink Common Core Standards
Denver – Americans For Prosperity – Colorado State Director, Dustin Zvonek, is available for questions regarding tomorrow’s vote on Senate Bill 136, which would require the state to delay adoption of the Common Core standards and study the issue more closely.
“Common Core was developed using a top-down approach,” said Dustin Zvonek. “It was pushed onto Colorado with too little debate and no parental input. We don’t want Washington, DC to write our education policy. We want time to debate what the best academic standards and tests are for Colorado.”
“People may disagree on why the Common Core isn’t right for Colorado this year. But we all agree that this process has moved too fast with too little input from Colorado’s educators and parents. That is why Senate Bill 136 should become law and why we need a one-year delay of the new Common Core tests.”
