CWA of GA responds to recent news articles on the Common Core

CWA of GA responds to recent news articles on the Common Core
By: CWALAC Staff - 8/22/2013

On August 21, 2013, Gov. Nathan Deal asked the Georgia State Board of Education to do a review of the Common Core standards. In addition, the Governor asked the school board members to begin developing Georgia’s own curriculum standards for Social Studies which are not currently a part of the Common Core standards. Click here for more information.

While Concerned Women for America of Georgia continues to be encouraged that Gov. Deal is listening to Georgia citizens on this critical education issue, there is still work to be done. In 2010, former Gov. Sonny Perdue and former State School Superintendent Kathy Cox shackled Georgia students with the untested and unpiloted Common Core standards and their aligned national tests through the Race to the Top grant. This egregious sidestepping of the General Assembly must not happen again.

CWA of Georgia believes that state legislators must step up to the plate and pass legislation to withdraw Georgia from the Common Core standards, any national tests, and the intrusive student data-tracking system. Only then will Georgia be totally liberated from the Common Core scheme.
