Oklahomans - And Others - Against Common Core State Standards

July 25, 2012 by jenni

STOP IMPLEMENTING THE COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS AND RETURN TO LOCAL CONTROL OF OKLAHOMA EDUCATION!

The Common Core State Standards present a takeover of public education by a small group of individuals. This takeover will change the way that teachers teach, parents interact with their schools due to loss of local control, and present students with a narrow range of studies and increased standardized testing. Oklahomans must maintain local control over public education, therefore, we reject the Common Core State Standards.

We reject the homogenization of public education and ask our state legislators and officials to reject the Common Core State Standards.
