Bait & Switch - When Hopes for CC Repeal Results in Loss of More Parental Rights-Vote No on Constitutional Amendment For Appointed Board March 2020
Very troubling when parents who have earnestly fought for good education find out how legislators have in essence--lied again. A Common Core Repeal SB119 was passed rather quickly in the Senate in March but it was not passed by the House Ed Committee under Terri Collins. Senate passed another Common Core Repeal Bill that was badly worded and looked like Common Core here to stay, but that was the wording that would satisfy Terri Collins. We were told it would repeal Common Core but calls were made asking Legislators to not pass as it sounded like a bait and switch. Turns out that was the case. Here's an article that shows Bill SB397 was not about repealing Common Core but truly getting total control of education and the appointed board would decide to keep the Common Core Standards or not...duh!! Can legislators imagine why parents are mad? Nine years of untold number of children harmed and these families were just thrown under the bus. I guess for these legislators it was too much to think that parents without Phd's know best. Parents are litmus test of good education and it is time legislators remember that fact.
Hope everyone reads and shares with their legislator. Here's some videos to help get up to speed if you are new to the fight.
