Member of an Oklahoma District Public School Board Speaks Out About Common Core

Thompson Spier, member of an Oklahoma public school district board, has written a screed covering his thoughts on Common Core. We posted his opinions on our Facebook page, where it received 7,164 views, 102 shares and 14 comments. Clearly, Mr. Spier has spoken words from his heart that touched many. Please share this information with your own school board members, and of course your legislators, who MUST remove Common Core from state law in order to provide the local control for which Mr. Spier pines.

September 14, 2013 by Anonymous

Recently, we've taken to developing memes - pictures that represent a set of ideas - about Common Core. Sadly, many parents are either too busy or disinterested in reading about the real problems associated with Common Core on their own, but they might if a picture sparked their interest. I've pasted in a couple below, but if you'd like to copy and paste any of these images into emails or onto Facebook or Tweet them out on Twitter, please go to our Pinterest account where all our current memes (plus explanations for all) are pasted.
