Disgusted by the information about Common Core relayed by speaker Lauri Day to citizens Monday night, one man stood up to ask, “What can we do to fight this?”
“Well, we don’t have time to soft soap it, like they did. We need to call our legislators, school board and the media about it. Remember the Republic? It was given to the people and we have to reclaim it,” she said.
Calling it a “race to the middle,” a jab at the race to the top program, “I have a gut feeling it is all about anti nationalism,” Day said.
StopCommonCore.com explains they are pushing back nationwide. “Patriot activists, as they discover the truth about the Common Core, are ramping up efforts to reclaim local control over education. Movements are afoot in Colorado, Georgia, Maine, Missouri and New Hampshire. The issue received extensive attention in prominent author Stanley Kurtz’s new book, “Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities” and national education commentators are be beginning to marvel at the Common Core pushback. The undercover effort to impose the common Core is beginning to wither in the light of day.”
