Endorse the Message

Our hope is that the work we have completed here will be a message that Stop Common Core efforts nationwide can endorse and utilize. This is not a member organization. The information contained in our report on the HOME page is the result of months of effort by volunteer participants.

If you represent an organization which supports the multi-partisan statement of opposition to the Common Core State Standards Initiative, please EMAIL the name of your group to be added to a list of supporters, and share with others you think will be interested in joining this multi-partisan effort to articulate a shared vision for a system of education in the United States that produces mature thinkers and sustains a free society, in opposition to the CCSSI.

We, the undersigned organizations and our members, support the multi-partisan statement of...

We oppose the CCSSI because it continues the failed education reforms of the past and violates privacy rights as it builds a system for centrally managed student training for the future workforce of the “Global Economy.” This central goal will dismantle liberal arts education, which most contributes to the development of mature thinkers who are prepared to thrive in any chosen life path and sustain a free civilization.
  1. We oppose the philosophy of standardization built into all federal education initiatives, including the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
  2. We oppose high-stakes testing.
  3. We oppose a national student data system.

The desire to protect our children's education and future is not a partisan, party line issue. Education must remain local with parents, school boards, and teachers remaining the primary drivers for educational improvement. The future of our country and families is literally at stake. Working together to defeat Common Core is the best solution. For this reason, we support Left-Right Alliance for Education.

Thank you for your website. I have always said this is not a left or right issue. It is not a Democrat or Republican issue. It is a propoganda vs. truth issue.

As Director of Alabamians United for Excellence in Education, I stand with you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for starting this group. We need this to show as I have stated from the very beginning, it is not a Right or a Left thing, but a final push to "dumb down" our children to be nothing but followers in "brown shirts'!

CCSSI has gathered support from those who will make money off of our children and through the back door process give total control of the education of our children to the Federal government. The Constitution does not even mention education. The Founders felt strongly that the education of our children should be the responsibility and control of and by the parents. Educations primary intent was to teach our children how to read and their main book was to be the bible.

Please let me know if our group can be of help and please let me know how we can take part in your list of bloggers.

In the struggle to return our kids' education to the true stakeholders (rather than shareholders) we can expect no less than the end of partisan divisiveness, which is solely kept alive by the corporate media attempting to distract our eyes from their crimes. It's time we take a step back, look at each other through new eyes, and realize that we are not as different as we've been told to be. We all love our kids and want them to grow up in a free, sane, and happy America.

I am a Special Education teacher going into my 23rd year of teaching. I have worked in a variety of settings from inclusion to self-contained. The current educational practices of high-stakes testing, one-size-fits-all Common Core Curriculum/ Standards, privatization of schools and teacher/ education bashing is a record low in my career.

I have seen many different programs and curriculums come and go over the past 23 years, this is by far the worst way to go about educating children.

I want to do what is right for my students and my own daughter and CC and all that it brings with it are NOT the answer.

Glad to see this organization come together, especially at this time. WI is in the midst of deciding whether to go forward with CCSS or to cease its implementation.

  1. This alliance will boost the movement to a whole other level. There are certain principles that the CCSSI can be agreed upon by all AMERICANS to eradicate the Initiative from our State.

  2. The Common Core a Initiative will extend and build on the failed education policies of No Child Left Behind. As an experienced, highly qualified educator I oppose attempts to standardize our children with an outdated method of consequential accountability that perpetuates a culture of failure. I fully support your message and understand the importance of a collaborative voice in this effort.
