"Concern from conservatives has reached a boiling point, leading the Republican National Committee last week to adopt a resolution condemning the standards."This has action clearly upset Jeb Bush.
The Foundation for Excellence in Education, founded by Mr. Bush and a strong voice in favor of Common Core, is accusing the RNC of having “no real debate on the issue” and caving to fear and paranoia.Clearly, grass roots activism is making making an impact.
"More than 100 parent groups and other organizations held a “Twitter rally” this week to galvanize opposition to the standards. Pundits such as Michelle Malkin and Glenn Beck are leading the charge against Common Core, and that effort is spurring action in state capitals."Jeb Bush is doubling down and determined not to let parents decide the standards for their children. Just days after the rally, Jeb Bush wrote a glowing testimony of lead architect of the Common Core, David Coleman.
He is the kind of leader who gives me hope for the future.Grassroots activism that puts Jeb Bush and the GOP on the defensive gives me hope for the future, not David Coleman!
Keep the pressure up. We're winning.
Michigan's bill HB 4276 to prohibit the implementation Common Core has proponents worried because homeschoolers have lawmakers phones "ringing off the hook."
Ohio decided not to fund the PARCC assessments associated with Common Core.
Many states are also considering the Next Generation Science Standards in the next month. Let your state lawmakers and school boards know you do NOT support their implementation.
You can also call your US Senators and ask them to support Senator Grassley's fight against funding Common Core.
Every effort makes a difference.
