Call to Action: Federal Defund Common Core effort underway

10 Republican U.S. Senators recently submitted a proposal to eliminate the U.S. Department of Education’s forced mandate on states to implement Common Core.

You see, federal funding is tied to Common Core adoption.

This new proposal will fully eliminate that requirement in the FY2015 budget.

But as always, Establishment politicians are in the way–and that’s where you and I come in.

Right now, lawmakers in DC are crafting next year’s budget bills.

A subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee is reviewing education spending and will make a final decision on whether or not to include this language.

Please contact the following U.S. Senators today to call on them to eliminate the forced Common Core mandate on states.

Jerry Moran (R-Kansas)
(202) 224-6521

Richard C. Shelby (R-Alabama)
(202) 224-5744

Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee)
(202) 224-4944

Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina)
(202) 224-5972

Mark Kirk (R-Illinois)
(202) 224-2854

Mike Johanns (R-Nebraska)
(202) 224-4224

John Boozman (R-Arkansas)
(202) 224-4843

When you call tell them to:

Include this proposed language in the Fiscal Year 2015 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Bill.

After you call, take a minute to let us know what the results were by clicking here.

If we can win on this issue we can effectively free all states from any federal coercion on Common Core implementation.

Please take a quick moment today to make phone calls into DC to send the message to these Senators that we demand they eliminate any forced federal requirements to implement Common Core.
