URGENT ACTION NEEDED!
Contact our State Board of Education members and encourage them to support the recommendations of the Academic Standards Review Commission.
Reliable inside the beltway sources have leaked information to Common Core Warriors that the Gates Foundation and other nameless, faceless, unelected,unaccountable entities have joined forces to flood our State Board of Education with letters urging them to disregard the recommendations from the Academic Standards Review Commission regarding the State’s stance on Common Core.
This is an effort to undermine the efforts of the Academic Standards Review Commission before the report is filed! The ASRC has been operating for over a year fulfilling the charge given them by the General Assembly under Senate bill 812, which was to Repeal and Replace Common Core.Obviously these for profit entities are fearful that the Commission Report will not be favorable to their self serving interests and bottom lines.
Please contact our State Board of Education members and encourage them to seriously consider the recommendations that will be put forth on December18th. I have included their e mail contact information.

The decision will be made very soon on CommonCore. If we don’t get rid of this bad education now, we are not going to be able to, because it is being written into many state and national laws. Federal government has quietly taken over state education, unconstitutionally, and without any legal authority.
I also ask that you write your Representatives and Senators and share your thoughts on this attempt to undermine this process to repeal and replace Common Core.
