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)
Richard C. Shelby (R-Alabama)
Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee)
Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina)
Mark Kirk (R-Illinois)
Mike Johanns (R-Nebraska)
John Boozman (R-Arkansas)
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.
