***UPDATE***

KACC would like to send a special thanks to Representatives Joseph Scapa and Tony Barton. In addition, we would like to thank Dr. Duke Pesta for coming to speak to the House Education Committee today. Finally, to all of you grassroots warriors out there, thank you!

Now, for some awesome news…we passed our REPEAL COMMON CORE BILL OUT OF THE HOUSE EDUCATION COMMITTEE!

The battle has begun in earnest, so please prepare yourselves for more activation and whatever else we need to pass this bill, without amendments, on the House floor. The bill number, for a couple of reasons, has changed back to HB2292, so if you make any calls of thanks or to encourage your representatives to get on board, use HB2292 and remember, “WITHOUT AMENDMENTS.”

We will keep you up to date with things to help with and what the schedule is as it becomes available, but for right now, it is a time for a quick prayer of thanks and a promise to see this through.

Thanks!
KACC

There was a great turnout at the rally, great speakers in support or HB 2292 – including Dr. Mary Byrne and Ze’ev Wurman, and there were over 60 written testimonies submitted in support of HB 2292.  The House Education Committee heard the proponents of HB 2292 first, and then listened to the opponents.  No vote was taken in committee yesterday, and we do not have a scheduled time or date when/if that will happen – so please, keep emailing, calling and writing the House Education Committee, your own representative and senator, and Governor Brownback… NOW is the time to STOP COMMON CORE in Kansas!  

Thank you_apple
