We hope to have a large turnout so grab your friends and family, make some signs (respectful and appropriate please) and head to Topeka! This is the first day the Kansas Legislature returns to start wrapping-up the session, so it’s a great day to let our opposition to Common Core be heard. We hope you will join us at the Capitol!

We have been working very hard over the last several months, many of you much longer, to spread the truth about Common Core and help return Kansas to locally controlled education. We appreciate your support in these efforts, and have been amazed to see the continually growing grassroots support to return to local/state education and STOP Common Core in our state.
