CALL TO ACTION – WEEK 4
LEARN & SHARE

We hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Christmas!

Only two weeks until the start of the next legislative session on January 13th, 2014.  We need every concerned Kansan to help spread the truth about Common Core and participate in the effort to restore local education in Kansas.

This week we want you to LEARN & SHARE about Common Core!
We are often contacted by people who are opposed to Common Core, but say they are not comfortable discussing it with others.  That is very easy to understand!  The entire package of Common Core is very complicated and can seem overwhelming. That is why this week we want to provide you with some great links for information – basic to very in-depth.

Please take time to learn more about Common Core.  After you spend time doing your own research about Common Core, share with friends and family.  Many people have still not heard about Common Core, and it is so important to share the truth and make them aware of the changes happening in education.

Here are some great papers, articles and videos to help you learn more,
AND SHARE with others!
