Action Alert:  Oppose Common Core
If we oppose Common Core, we must contact members of the Education Oversight Committee right away and tell them we oppose it.  they meet today.
Pull out of the Common Core testing because S.C. cannot afford it; neither can these other states that have already pulled out:  Pennsylvania, Alabama, Oklahoma and Utah
Here is a copy of a letter sent to members of  the Education Oversight Committee.

Members of the Education Oversight Committee  (EOC)   It is suggested we just copy and paste the addresses in our address box, and send to these committee members:
