Guest speaker, Alisa Ellis will speak on the history and truth of Common Core and its impact on our children and their education.

Alisa Ellis is a mother of seven ranging from pre-K to 10th grade. She and her husband reside in Utah. She holds a Bachelors of Science in Family, Home and Social Sciences. In the Spring of 2011, she became concerned with apparent change in her children’s curricula which prompted her to spend countless hours researching Utah’s education grants, governing documents, and the detailed development of Common Core. She could not ignore what she discovered. Alisa is now asked to speak at public forums across the nation, Utah legislative meetings, radio appearances and more.

Megan King is a Kansas mom, and co-founder of Kansans Against Common Core.  She will be presenting updates and information on the latest in the efforts to STOP Common Core (Kansas College & Career Ready Standards) in Kansas.

*This meeting is being hosted and organized by a concerned group of parents taking action in the Kansas City area.  If you would like to contact them directly, or need more information we would be happy to put you in touch with them.

Grassroots Activists – For parents, taxpayers, teachers, legislators. We’ll talk about everything in our activist kit, answer questions and get you networking.

Non-Public Schools (Catholic/Private/Home Schools) – Whether or not CC is in or coming to your school, you need to know what to watch for and how to keep the quality education you are paying for or providing.
