"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

List of Common Core Corporate Sponsors and State Chiefs

Common Core Chief State Officers had 2013 Legislative Conference March 17-19 in Washington DC.  It's interesting that it is listed as a legislative conference as state legislatures (and Congress) have had no idea on what these state chiefs and private interests have decided for states and local school districts.

On page 2/48 of the conference material (the first page) it states CCSSO is:

Supporting states in transforming education systems and policies.

Translated: a private trade organization is crafting plans/mandates that states must follow to receive federal funding.  It's supporting states in telling them how CCSSO will develop education and how the states then need to deliver the CCSSO mandate.

Read through the document. Find out who is selling out your state sovereignty on the state level and what private corporations are making money from the CCSSO/Department of Education takeover blueprint of public education.

If you think local school districts and states should have the right to transform education systems and policies and not consortia and private trade organizations receiving stimulus funding tied to federal mandates, sign the petition to rid Missouri of common core state standards.

  1. Finding our Pa Biz Council supports and lots of companies, conservative and liberal alike, are sponsoring and supporting Common Core. Why? I've asked and they say it's a rigorous program that will advance our students. Why don't they get it?
