House Education Committee needs to hear from you-Common Core and charters

The House Education Committee needs to hear from us! We have been told by mulitiple sources that they are being flooded with emails from anti-common core and pro-charter voices. As for Common Core Kansans have been involved in drafting the curriculum. We have talked to many teachers who support it and say that it will allow them to teach the way they used to teach. It will allow them to encourage …higher level thinking, analytical and writing skills that are so very important. The State of Kansas also promised to adopt Common Core as part of its waiver to get out of the increasingly unattainable goals of No Child Left Behind. If we don’t adopt Common Core, we believe we will be back to NCLB and AYP. Common Core will standardize the curriculum so that children cover the same topics in the same year. This will be beneficial for students who move states during their academic careers. Textbooks and lesson plans are still left to individual districts and teachers. Furthermore, the SAT and ACT are being rewritten to incorporate the Common Core curriculum, and if we don’t adopt it, our children may be at a disadvantage in college admissions. Here are the email addresses: ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’; ‘’
