Our country’s education system is not working. Even those who created Common Core agree that our public education system is flawed, but the problem is that Common Core advocates decided the answer was more government control and intervention. They got it so wrong.

More government control and intervention will not help our children gain a better education. 

  • The federal government should not be involved in creating standards that are implemented by our states. Instead, parents, teachers, school districts and local communities should be making these important decisions for our children.
  • Our children need to finish school with both the values and the knowledge to work hard, serve their community and prosper. Those ideals won’t come from the federal government, Common Core, No Child Left Behind, or even from standards being set at the state level. This will happen when parents have control over the education of their children.
  • With Common Core we see a loss of parental and local control, the waste of millions of dollars, a move towards a nationalized curriculum, and pre-k through college data mining.   
  • We need a broad movement to put parents back in charge of the educational system, and fighting Common Core and other top-down education reforms is a good start in the right direction.

If you agree that Common Core is wrong for our kids, wrong for our schools and wrong for our country, then add your name below.  

Let's fight for parental control in education!

I think Pastors all over the US should send her their sermons. Bombard her with thousands of sermons. We have to protect and uphold our Constitution. God Bless America!

  • We know the First Amendment says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

  • We know that the First Amendment is one of our most precious rights as Americans, and we won’t allow it to be trampled upon.
  • We believe that the efforts by the City of Houston to subpoena materials from pastors across the city is a violation of that right.
  • We stand with these pastors and not just because of religious reasons.  We believe that regardless of one’s religious or political views, this kind of activity by any government in this country is extremely alarming and must be stopped.
  • We believe that the constant drumbeat to weaken our First Amendment is real, and we will stand with Republicans and Democrats to stop it.
