ACTION ALERT: Defund Common Core!

May 24, 2013

Common Core is a set of national educational curriculum guidelines that opens the door for the federal government to dictate every school’s curriculum. Kansas legislators will soon consider a budget proviso that prohibits your tax dollars from being used to implement this new program.

Watch this short video explaining the problems with Common Core standards.

Common Core is estimated to cost the states $15.8 billion in the first seven years after its implementation. Common Core takes control away from state educators and it simply repeats top-down, Washington-driven strategies of the past that will only result in more money being spent on more failure.

Please contact your legislators today and urge them to vote to defund Common Core in Kansas!
