Education in Alabama belongs to the people of Alabama, not the Federal Government.
Stop the Common Core Standards Initiative (CCSSI).
Stop CCSSI from linking student failure to teacher jobs.
Stop CCSSI from deciding if children will be college or trade bound.
Stop the billions of tax dollars that will be spent by the state to support CCSSI.
Stop the accumulation of private student/family information gathered by schools (public/private) for federal data banks.
This is not a left vs right issue.
It is not a Republican vs. Democrat issue.

"If fully enacted, the Common Core of Standards will be the culmination of a process that began in earnest immediately following the Second World War, with the goal of producing a nationwide, attitude-changing curriculum that molds public opinion. A victory for CCS may well finish off the Founders’ “grand experiment” in self-government and self-determination because it would further institutionalize, for the foreseeable future, progressivism’s core philosophy: that socialization (or “teamwork”) is more important than facts or context, and that political correctness rather than accomplishment is the key to success in a Nanny State."
