The expansion of federal government and its intrusion into our children's education has got to stop. Our DESE cannot seem to ingratiate itself enough to the USDoE. Our State Board of Education and legislature turn a blind eye to the coming fiscal crisis that DESE is creating. Our children's privacy is being invaded while their humanity is being stripped away by government bureaucrats who refer to them as human capital and treat them as raw material to be processed by the state for its own economic purposes.
Our two goals are to
1. Take control of education out of DC and private corporation's hands and return it to our local communities, and
2. Protect our children's privacy by restricting government's ability to collect and share information about them.
Please visit the Resource page to learn more about the Common Core State Standards and the Longitudinal Data System. We hope to soon have a petition you can sign to the Governor, State School Board, State Superintendent, Attorney General, and Legislators letting them know we want out of Common Core.
