Your Action is Needed: “Dear Colleague’s” are being circulated on the Common Core State Standards

Your Action is Needed: “Dear Colleague’s” are being circulated on the Common Core State Standards
By: CWA of North Carolina - 5/1/2014

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) are circulating a “Dear Colleague” letter in their respective chambers to the leaders of the Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education in the Senate/House Appropriations Committee.

This letter emphasizes the need to include language in the next Fiscal Year 2015 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations bills to ensure parents are able to keep accountable those who are making decisions for their child’s education. Language is also needed to ensure that those decisions are made at the state and local level, not the federal level or by the U.S. Department of Education.

The letter also clarifies that funds appropriated will not be used to develop or implement the Common Core State Standards developed under the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Weinstein complained to Air Force Academy Superintendent Michelle Johnson, the Bible verse was erased from the leader’s whiteboard … and an American soldier’s religious liberty was blatantly denied.
