CALL TO ACTION: COMMON CORE MEETING, HARRISBURG

We have an opportunity to stop the Common Core agenda at the regulatory review level. The IRRC (Independent Regulatory Review Commission) is currently reviewing the PA Common Core Standards. They have stopped regulations in the past and it is essential that citizens provide input to encourage them to stop Common Core.
TOP PRIORITY: Send the IRRC your "testimonial" against PA Common Core Standards to Mr. David Sumner, Executive Director of the IRRC. Email: [masked]. In your email reference IRRC No. 2976. The deadline for receipt is 10AM, Tuesday, Nov. 19. Let the IRRC know why you oppose the Standards. They are especially concerned about cost of implementation and fiscal consequences.
Key talking points: How much is this going to cost? Stop it until we know. How will this be funded? This will lead to tax increases in local districts. Don't approve unfunded mandates. Why is this being forced on PA schools when it is untested. School districts are already financially strapped. Don't add to their problems.
For more information go to: [masked]
Also, contact your own state legislators and Governor Corbett at [masked].
