Common Core State Standards talk set for Wednesday November 20

leave a comment »

Empower yourself by learning about the consequences of Common Core Standards. The event will take place at The Osage Center on Wednesday, November 20, 2013, at 6:30 PM in Room 2A, 1625 North Kingshighway, Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Join presenter Stacy Shore and Concerned Woman for America of Missouri (CWA) for a lively discussion outlining these education standards and their impact on our families, communities and state.

Education is not a “one-size-fits-all” process devoid of input on the local and parental level. Standards do not make students smarter.

Prescribing the same standards to all states ignores the fact that some students learn different subjects at different paces. States can have different educational priorities and environments.  The standards outlined in the Common Core State Standards Initiative are too long, detailed, and cumbersome.

Common Core Standards diminish the rights of parents by removing the control they must have in deciding the best method for educating their children.  Local control of education must be enthusiastically encouraged and supported by the residents of a school district.  Everyone in the school district must understand this concept of local control; support local schools and oppose federal control over local control of education.

Everyone is welcome.
