Petition to Stop the Common Core

The Common Core standards are an inferior set of standards which negatively impact teacher evaluations, school accountability measures, instructional techniques, curriculum, funding, interventions for low-performing schools, and college entrance tests.

As the ability of states to influence education policy diminishes under Common Core, so does that of individual parents and teachers. The Common Core Initiative must be ended to restore the authority over education to those closest to the child.

The Common Core initiative violates children's privacy by allowing the federal government to access personally identifiable data collected through the Common Core-aligned assessments.

The Common Core State Standards and aligned assessments will further exasperate children and teachers by doubling down on a high-stakes testing culture.

Christy Hooley, teacher, Wyoming

"I spent the school year compiling research on the pros and cons of the standards and quickly came to see that Common Core was doing far more harm to our education system than just what I was seeing in my own classroom."

Lee Hunter, parent, Ohio

"The teacher tried to help, I could tell she was trying to do her best – but analyzing the situation – it all boiled down to the only difference this year was the content of what was being taught."

Erin Tuttle, parent, Indiana

"In 2011, my child's school adopted a Common Core aligned math textbook. Students were confused by the instructional techniques being taught and parents were frustrated that their concerns were being ignored."
