different reasons, this is a time, where Americans need to come together and stop Common Core Statist Standards. There is power in numbers, and I am happy to have any teacher, parent, grandparent, administrator, and/or union member join the fight. Regardless of the reason, reasonable folks not employed by Pearson or receiving Foundational money recognize how bad CC is for our nation. BTW, testing through the consortiums, another unfunded mandate, has been a disaster thus far. Pearson screwing up as usual (antitrust issues will arise) and other tech issues. Huge expense, and the testing to evaluate our kids & teachers is a debacle so far. So much so, that the leader of one of the largest teacher's union is calling for a halt.
