  1. 21 states including NJ, my state, have either introduced or passed legislation to rescind CCSS. What more do we have to do to convince the Governors and this administration that we DO NOT want this in our schools. I would like an answer.
  2. Jan, there are millions of marketing dollars being spent on the talking points (lies) of Common Core. I believe we have to be persistent and clear in speaking up to our Governors, our media sources, our school boards, our chambers of commerce, and other groups that are still advocating for this experiment on children based on substance-less talking points. It’s up to each of us. There is no other way. But it’s working, slowly. The truth is slowly seeping forward and people are realizing that truly, the Emperor of Common Core is wearing no clothes.

  3. Couldn’t hear the conversation clearly, and my volume was turned up as loud as it will go. Sorry —

  4. My experience was the same as Sandra Wickham from Colorado, I tried the volume at various levels, to see if it made any difference. I turned the volume all the way up and it didn’t matter. Much of what was said on both sides of the debate was so unclear, because of the speaker system, that it didn’t help me any. I hope that those in attendance at the meeting in Logan, got better reception and a clearer understanding of the issue, but thank you so much for all you do to keep us informed.
