Don't Let the Commission Vote for Money and More Taxes for Common Core

Monday the County Commission is going to vote on giving half a million dollars to the school system to support Common Core and the PARCC test. Don't let them do it. Call your commissioners today.
This amount will be enough to lead to yet another tax increase. Stop it now, before it goes into effect.

Your taxes will go up with Common Core. Don't let the county commission fund this.

And what happens in a couple of years when the testing standards and methods change again? More money?

Exactly. If you don't call your commissioners and they vote for the money, you are allowing them to vote for a tax increase because they will have to increase taxes.

Why wasn't this already in the budget instead of asking for additional funds now?

Common core should not be implemented. They are trying to teach kids to conform to one type. No kids learn or think alike. The no child left behind didn't last. This should have never started. Now even if you don't get the right answer that is okay as long as you can tell why you got it. In the real world this doesn't work. What are you going to tell your boss when you come in late or not do the job needed? Are you going to say oh sorry my answer is just as good as anybody else. Doesn't matter if it is your answer or not.
Parents need to stand up and get this out. The kids are not getting the education they need to succeed in college. Those not going to college need to be trained for their job. Put money in a training facility to help the kids succeed not teachb them to rely on others.
