The next course of action would be to contact the members on the education committee and strongly urge their support of this bill.  They expect a Senate companion bill to be filed soon.

    Awesome! Common core is a federal and corporate takeover of public education. It is developmentally inappropriate and has been criticized by many in the education field. The only ones for it are getting paid. I want to hide my children from these people. Plus they want any and all data they can amass on each and every kid in America. (they already got the adults thanks to NSA). Time to kick Common Core to the curb. Its garbage.

    Excellent. My adult children got an excellent NYS education without common core. I’d like to allow my grand children the same advantage! Ax this sucker program!
