Now that the origins and dangers of the Common Core scheme have been revealed, people are beginning to fight back on behalf of their children. In the year since FPE’s first video exposed the government overreach and crony capitalism that drive Common Core, much has transpired.
We will discuss the current state of the fight, identity new threats–including coming Science and History standards–and update efforts to remove Common Core from state to state. And, with 450 talks in 41 states behind us, we also offer some perspective on the best ways to continue pushing back against this cynical ploy to manipulate the hearts and minds of our children.
