Support HB 2621 Rally - Wednesday, February 19th

One week ago…

Kansans gathered at the Capitol in Topeka to rally in support of HB 2621, and to attend the House Education Committee hearing for the bill.

There were people who attended from Garden City, Hays, Salina, Wichita, Dodge City, Manhattan, Wichita, Pittsburg, Manhattan, Lawrence, Topeka, Olathe, Spring Hill, Lenexa, Shawnee, Gardner, Leawood, and many other locations.  Kansans who took time off from work, found childcare, and covered travel expenses.

The room for the hearing was full, and the overflow went outside into the hall.

There were so many speakers, about 70 total with 30 supporting HB 2621, that time  allowed for presenting testimony was limited to only 90 seconds.  Those testifying did their best to make their messages as concise as possible.  Excellent testimony was presented in opposition to Common Core (Kansas College and Career Ready Standards).

The time quickly passed, and the hearing was over.  The bill was not discussed by the committee, and it was not voted on.  That means there is still work to do!  PLEASE:

  • Continue to contact the House Education Committee members and tell them to STOP Common Core and support HB 2621

  • Continue to contact your own Kansas Representative and Kansas Senator and tell them to STOP Common Core and support HB 2621

  • Continue to contact the Governor’s Office

  • AND PLEASE – Continue to share the truth about Common Core (Kansas College and Career Ready Standards) with friends, family, neighbors, etc.  It is so important to encourage others to get involved at the local level!

THANK YOU to everyone who attended the rally!

THANK YOU to everyone who attending the hearing, submitted testimony and presented testimony!

THANK YOU to everyone who made phone calls and sent emails!

THANK YOU to everyone who has been following, sharing, posting, praying and supporting the effort to reclaim education in Kansas!

THANK YOU!
