Stop Common Core Goes Viral

Social media is a powerful tool in the hands of grassroots activists. It is astounding that our voices can be heard around the globe without ever leaving the comfort of our own home. The rise of social media has presented a new platform for expressing our ideas and influencing others.

Losing Literacy

Until WWII, American children learned to read by utilizing phonics. Words were not learned by memorization but rather, children learned that each letter had a corresponding sound. When put together with other sounds, a word was made. This method had proved to be extraordinarily successful since America’s founding and two centuries beyond. It was this method that allowed Benjamin Franklin to be a proficient reader before ever stepping foot into a classroom.

The U.S. Education System: What Went Wrong? Part III

A great thing about being American is that if you are unhappy with how things are run in one state, you are free to move to 49 others.  The same goes for businesses. If you are unsatisfied with one company, you can take your money to another establishment.

The Common Core Fight is On in Tennessee

Common Core is awfully unpopular for something that’s supposed to be so great. State after state is trying to keep academic freedom alive, and Tennessee is joining that list. Hearings have been held in the Volunteer State, and the fight is on.

Common Core Destroys School Choice

An important part of why many parents favor school choice is it increases the chances their kids will get into a good college. Private school students and homeschoolers regularly score higher on college entrance exams than most public school children.

Testimony by Stacy Shore, Missouri

My journey to fight Common Core started before I knew what it was. It began when our school district started a pilot of the Common Core curriculum when my son was in the 3rd grade. My curiosity became heightened when he would come home with 5 word problems, and we would work those problems together… with a standard algorithm, get the right answers, send it back to school, and have it come home with all answers counted incorrect. I would call the teacher confused why all of his problems were counted wrong even though they were right. The teacher notified me that no longer was the “right” answer the objective. Math was all of a sudden about the process, not the answer. And so my journey began.
