  • Thank you for making this petition.

    A month ago I knew nothing about common core, and now i realize that it’s so much more than an education initiative. it’s a sly assault on freedom made with pretty words that result in loss of local control over educational standards, testing, privacy and values.

    educational decisions are meaningless without political freedom to change those decisions as we see fit, to raise our standards even higher if we see fit, and to spend our precious educational dollars where we see fit –not as federally orchestrated mandates tell us.

    for those who like the new standards, please realize that by cutting ties to cci and SBAC, we lose nothing– the standards are in public domain and we can use whatever works for utah, but let’s do it with our own state sovereignty intact, and not under the thumb of the common core initiative.

    just say no to common core!

“I believe that the school is primarily a social institution. Education being a social process, the school is simply that form of community life in which all those agencies are concentrated that will be most effective in bringing the child to share in the inherited resources of the race, and to use his own powers for social ends. I believe that education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.” — John Dewey, My Pedagogic Creed, January 1897
