Note From Heather Crossin :
We are making huge headway. Not only is the anti-Common Core movement growing by leaps and bounds across the country, but Indiana has joined the growing number of states withdrawing from the Common Core PARCC assessment program. Here is a link to some recent news coverage of Governor Pence’s and Superintendent Ritz’s decision to withdraw from PARCC. http://www.indianasnewscenter.com/news/local/Pence-Common-Core-Needs-Overhaul-217832311.html
While this is awesome news, simply pulling out of the federal testing consortium doesn’t free us from Common Core. The fact is that Common Core in the classroom is marching on in many schools this fall. We need to let politicians know that Common Core with an Indiana Common Core test won’t cut it. The standards themselves are rotten to the core! Tomorrow many qualified experts from Indiana and around the country will speak to this fact.
If your schedule does not permit you to attend, you may wish to watch the live feed of the hearing, which you can access at this link: http://www.in.gov/legislative/.
