WASHINGTON, D.C. (WDAM) - This is a news release from American Principles in Action
American Principles in Action launched a new initiative today that will work to engage parents and get them involved in the fight against the Common Core. The website, ParentsAgainstTheCommonCore.com, will serve as a resource for parents and will also help to educate them and engage them in the fight against the national Common Core standards.
Emmett McGroarty, Executive Director of APIA Education, said, “The momentum against the Common Core standards continues to build every single day. Over the past year, five more states have pulled out of the Common Core and 13 states have downgraded their participation or withdrawn completely from the national tests. This happened entirely because of the grassroots efforts of the parents who refuse to cede control of their children's education to government bureaucrats.”
“The Parents Against the Common Core initiative is designed to engage parents and other concerned citizens on the issue and educate them on the specific problems with the Common Core,” McGroarty continued. “We will continue to work with parents, teachers, legislators, and other citizens in the fight against the Common Core. Our children deserve better than these standards and the future of America depends on something better than the Common Core.”
