Citizens for Traditional Values has put together a great one page resource that is your one stop link to everything you need to know to get up on Common Core quickly. Some of the information is specific to Michigan but it the general info is pertinent to every state. Great to pass along in an email or on Facebook.
There is a Stop Common Core in Michigan Facebook page too.
I'll be speaking on Common Core in Lansing, next week at the INCH Convention. If you are a homeschooler, Common Core and related standards and assessments will affect you too.
And if you're not from Michigan but want to find out where to get connected in your state visit Truth in American Education.
Get informed and get active. We're making a difference.
The President of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten, called for a moratorium on Common Core tests. She's a proponent of the standards but this may help slow the process down and allow for more examination of the standards. A good sign.
