ANTI-CC LAWSUIT FILED BY 17 STATE REPS AND JOINED BY PARENTS:

The contentious battle over WHO will control education in our schools moves into the courtroom this week. On one side (PRO-CC) is BIG GOVT, BIG BUSINESS, Senator Vitter , and other groups funded by Bill Gates....... on the other side is Gov. Jindal, and "the People" and groups who know that the CCSSI is a collusion among the elite that will NOT be good for our children, our state, or the country.

The lawsuit initiated by 17 LA lawmakers (filing as LA citizens) will be heard this Friday, Aug 15 at 10 am in Courtroom 10D of the 19th Judicial Court, 300 North Blvd, Baton Rouge 70801
(For more info on the lawsuit...see our previous post http://www.meetup.com...­ )

WE, the anti-CC activists, have had some great successes this year..... probably one of the most significant was convincing Gov Jindal to join us in the fight against CC. Apparently, he now understands what this initiative is all about.
Watch this great short speech he just gave explaining WHY he issued his Executive Orders to get us out of CC standards and testing. He makes a great case:

PHONE: ( 225 ) 342 - 0991
Secondary Phone Number: ( 866 ) 361 - 1121
EMAIL: http://www.gov.la.gov...­

Unfortunately, Senator Vitter chose last week to come out IN FAVOR OF CC IN LA and thus rain on our parade (so to speak). Several STOP CC activists (including me) have had personal phone calls from Sen. Vitter over the last week. He is clinging to his SUPPORT of CC and in our opinion.... is NOT very interested in the FACTS or changing his position. Personally, I believe the Senator is probably contacting us so that he can "check off the boxes" and say that he has spoken to many on BOTH sides of the issue. You can see my review of Sen Vitter's statements and our conversation here: http://www.meetup.com...­ (scroll thru multiple posts.....)

UPDATE ON THE CC LAWSUITS.....PRO AND CON:

I was in the courtroom on Friday ( with 3 other STOP CC activists) for the lawsuit filed by our 17 heroic legislators who were seeking a preliminary injunction of the CC standards in Louisiana. Unfortunately, Judge Kelley ruled AGAINST us so no injunction....yet!!

The judge did say that a permanent injunction is still a possibility if that case if filed. Rep Geymann et al are considering . The judge also said this decision was NOT commentary on whether CC standards are "good" or "bad".....hmmmm, perhaps he doesn't want to get into THAT debate. The really disappointing thing about this decision is that it essentially approves the BESE adoption of CC standards WITHOUT the checks and balances used in previous policy changes ie PUBLIC review using the APA (Administrative Procedures Act). The APA would require public notice and a 90 day review of the standards in the LA Public Register. This is a very dangerous precedent to set!!

Superintendent John White did his usual tap dance and proclaimed the standards to be merely "aspirational benchmarks" BUT then out of the other side of his mouth talked about how devastating any changes in "standards" would be to education in LA!!! We all know that we are locked into following these standards 100% and that they will be ENFORCED via accountability measures using PARCC high stakes testing...... they are certainly MORE than "aspirational"!!!

Here's a great review of this lawsuit....and the others pending in LA regarding CC.

PLEASE THANK THESE 17 LEGISLATORS AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO KEEP FIGHTING.....
