The Alabama state legislature: Pass Bills to repeal the adoption of Common Core

    1. Petition by

      Alabamians United for Excellence in Education

It is imperative that the Alabama State Legislature guarantee student privacy and local control of education by rescinding the unproven, experimental program known as Common Core State Standards Initiative (aka College and Career Ready Standards). The Common Core States Standards Initiative is a federal mandate which takes away state sovereignty and autonomy and gives control of Alabama Education to the US Department of Education. Its adoption must be repealed.

To:
The Alabama state legislature
Pass legislation to repeal the adoption of Common Core

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      My daughter has gone from a happy, enthusiastic student, to a defeated little girl who dreads school, now that she has entered a school that uses the Common Core curriculum. The amount of time that we have to spend working at home is ridiculous.

      Every night my child is in tears because his homework makes no sense. This curriculum has NO real-life application practicality. Our children are not taught their multiplication tables, but taught "how to figure them out." I cannot, in my wildest dreams, fathom how we are preparing our children for anything more than a life of mediocrity. I want my child to excel. This program does not allow that.

      CC violates at least 3 federal statutes including the one establishing the dictatorial DOE. Legislators foresaw the potential top-down menace and prohibited feds from prescribing curriculum.

      Why do we ignore the LAW? Elitists want to create little robots thru CC.
