Debbie Higginbotham will give a presentation on the facts concerning the Common Core Initiative. Common Core are a set of standards that were funded through the Race To The Top stimulus money that forces the same standards on all children across the nation. It has been proven, more than once, that a one size fits all standard does not work and loss of local control over anything is a loss of freedom for the people.

Mrs. Higginbotham gives an excellent presentation of what Common Core is about and why we should all be concerned. These standards will give the Federal government unprecedented control over Florida education, the methods are untested, there are serious concerns over data mining of students, and very few lawmakers or school board members have done their research on this subject. Come and get the facts.
