What Can You Do For Liberty Today?
Say NO to Common Core in Pennsylvania today! Sign the petition here.
Please contact the following people and ask them to hold House Education Committee hearings on Common Core:
E-mail the Secretary of Education Ron Tomalis at email@example.com
Ask these questions of your Representative and Senator
- Ask to see the cost analysis on Common Core. What will this cost us and where the money is coming from? According to the Pioneer Institute, full implementation in PA will cost $650 million.
- If you, the parents, or taxpayer, are unhappy with the standards how can they be amended?
- Ask to see the scientific studies upon which the academic foundations of Common Core rest.
- Ask to opt your child out of the data tracking system (P20w Longitudinal System). What is the process?
- Ask if they would be willing to introduce a bill to halt Common Core in Pennsylvania and give local control to districts to set their own high standards?
What can you expect?
Some legislators may tell you we’re “locked” in and there’s nothing that can be done. Don't stop asking! Tell them Pennsylvania is not locked in because other states have legislation to remove Common Core from their state.
What can you expect?
Some may tell you we’re “locked” in and there’s nothing to be done. But don’t stop asking! Tell them Pennsylvania is not locked in because other states have pieces of legislation to remove common core from their state.
The website www.nopacommoncore.com has developed an excellent fact sheet to debunk the PDE “white paper” that many of our legislators are using to support their position on Common Core. We encourage you to download it and send to your legislators.
Please download this one-page flyer on Common Core developed by the York 912 Patriots Education Committee. Distribute this flyer to friends, neighbors, legislators, educators, etc.
