Oklahoma Votes To Repeal Common Core…


Statehouses across the country have begun to wake up and see Common Core for what it really is; a nationalized education that hinders education on the local level. Oklahoma has joined the growing number of states who: are actively trying : to stop federal education to save their schools from the dumbing down and brainwashing of their children.

Common Core OK says no

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Senate on Tuesday passed a bill that would repeal a controversial set of academic standards known as Common Core.

House Bill 3399, by House Speaker Jeff Hickman, R-Fairview, and Sen. Josh Brecheen, R-Coalgate, passed by a vote of 37-10. The House could move to accept Senate changes or reject them, sending the measure to a conference committee.

The measure calls for the State Board of Education, chaired by State Superintendent Janet Barresi, to develop Oklahoma standards. Barresi in the past has supported Common Core.

Oklahoma adopted the Common Core standards in 2010. It was among 45 states to do so.

Common Core outlines what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade level. The initiative was developed by the National Governors Association, which Gov. Mary Fallin serves as chair.

Critics say the standards remove local control and would result in additional testing. They also fear it is a national plan for education.

My child and his friends have begun to complain how easy school is. Not that they don’t have homework, but that they don’t feel like they’re learning anything. Common Core keeps kids tied up with complicated and confusing busywork without actually giving them any substance that stretches the mind. You too can stop Common Core from turning our next generation against learning by contacting your local representative and asking them how they are fighting to stop Common Core in your state.
