About Common Core

On April 10, 2013, at the Spring meeting of the  Republican National Committee (RNC), a resolution to oppose Common Core was passed unanimously by the national Board.

Now, Republican Executive Committees across the country are to follow suit and stand united on issues as passed nationally and in the Republican Platform.

Wednesday evening, June 26, Volusia County REC passed the resolution rejecting Common Core for Florida Schools.

Let's voice our desire for the Pinellas REC to stand against Common Core also.

The link below takes you to the resolution passed by the National Republican Committee.

Let's print and bring a copy and arrive early to hear the discussion by House Representative Kathleen Peters and Senator Jeff Brandes on Common Core and Florida.  Bring your friends, teachers adult children, all who care about our education system.

Resolution:

    1st of all neither speaker was as informed as the listeners. second tell me why would one of the speakers not want to be video? Won't mention any names, but did not answer one question let the other speaker catch all the hard balls during Q & A.

    We had more Intelligent people from 1946 to 1976 in this country then ever before. So what happened?
    We didn't spend lots of money except on Black boards and school books. A building to house us in while we were made to do math long form. We didn't have computers the internet, smart phones or calculaters.
    We had chalk and a math problem we had to figure out
    What did that get us? Well we walked on the moon for one.

    I agree 100% with your assessment. This is what we are up against on so many important issues. Low information decisions being made on complex topics.

    It was disappointing that the constituents seemed to be more informed than our representatives. I appreciate their effort to discuss this concern but for something as important as this is, I feel like the state is succeeding in sneaking this in the back door. Our children and families deserve better.

    I am not able to attend most of these meetings. Is there a video or other means of information that I can be of use????? I'm very concerned with this common core education and do not want to see it anywhere in this country ... among most of the idiocy that is being implemented. Thanks and please let me know.
