Common Core is for the birds!

You may (or may not) have heard about the current news surrounding Kansas and the lesser prairie chicken.

Kansas will join lawsuit over federal listing of lesser prairie chicken as threatened

Kansas will join a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over listing the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species, Gov. Sam Brownback announced Friday.

“The federal government made this decision despite concerns raised by the states directly affected by this decision,” Brownback said.

“This is an overreach by the federal government and is another example of the Obama administration aggressively and unnecessarily intruding into our daily lives.”

Wouldn’t it be nice if our Kansas Legislature and Governor Brownback were leading on the issue of Common Core in the same way?

Pushing back against the federal overreach, and the loss of local/state control of education that Common Core brings to Kansas.
Kansas can do much better than Common Core!

We hope the chickens are on the prairie – and not in Topeka.

The legislative session will soon be over.

The time to reclaim Kansas education is now.

STOP COMMON CORE!
