Kansans Against Common Core sent me an update over the weekend about efforts to revive HB 2289 that was shot down in the Kansas House Committee on Education back in March.
Senator Susan Wagle, President of the Senate has stated her opposition to Common Core at a presentation she gave on Friday.
This is good news! There is still a possibility of stopping CC in Kansas before the session ends in May, but it is very important that we are calling, writing, emailing and being present at BOE meetings, Town Halls, and other events – at both your local community level and the state level.
PLEASE contact Senator Wagle and the Senate Education Committee members. Ask them to pass HB2289 (even though it didn’t make it out of committee in March, it can be voted on to reconsider) and to defund CC in May.
