OCTOBER – Articles & Updates

  • Un-Common, Not Core – by Cynthia Walker “The reform mathematicians who put together Common Core are ignoring cognitive development. My Common Core pre-algebra students are hurried through the arithmetic review and taught the coordinate system. They graph lines and parabolas. They do transformations, exponents (including zero and negative exponents), and a truly horrendous percentage of percentage problems. The homework can be finished in an hour if the student’s parents can afford to hire a BS mechanical engineer to sit at his elbow and remind him when he takes a wrong turn. Otherwise, he is up ’til midnight. Students work hard at tasks beyond their strength; they flounder; they fail; they learn that math is no fun.”

“This is a post from Stop Common Core in Mississippi on Facebook that currently has over 1,200 shares.

Is this happening in your state?”



“As with most initiatives created by those convinced government is smarter than individuals, this system is predicated on the notion that nationalization is the only way to create a level playing field for all involved. Teachers can’t be expected to help ALL students equally, but a federal mandates will solve that problem nicely.
NONE OF THIS IS AMERICAN. None of it. As Phyllis Schlafly explains,
Designed on the German system, the Tucker plan is to train children in specific jobs to serve the workforce and the global economy instead of to educate them so they can make their own life choices.

Get creative!


We are often contacted by individuals from across Kansas who think that no one is listening, and they are not sure how to spread the message – Stop Common Core (Kansas College and Career Ready Standards).

Time to think outside the box to spread the Stop Common Core message!
Here are just a few ideas…

BILLBOARDS – Large, small, or even a yard sign.
BARNS – or silos.
BOOKMARKS – Hand them out wherever you go!
BROADCAST – Television and radio – have you contacted your local stations?
BLACK AND WHITE – Newspapers, bulletins and flyers – write, post & share.

We are also working on a NEW page on our website – Connect Locally – to help you connect with others in your local area.  We truly believe one person can make a difference, but working with others is very helpful.  Let us know if we can help you connect – kristin@kansansagainstcommoncore.com.

Keep it up Kansas!
Let’s get creative and #StopCommonCore.

This is not the time to give up, because
Citizens are Winning the Common Core War – Missouri Education Watchog
So take heart! Keep up the fight and start using that social media to get the facts out about Common Core. Tweet this article with the disheartening news from the ed reformers. Let your legislators know how support for the “state led” standards that bypassed the legislators and citizens in those states is diminishing and we won’t quit until the CCSSI disappears into the history books as a failed education reform and attempt at corporate takeover of public education.
