Ed, the law did not pass. We are now concentrating on electing school board members that will repeal Common Core.

What's new with the new law passed?  How many systems have indicated they will drop common core?

THANK all of you who have contacted your state board members and asked them to rescind their adoption of common core standards (also called national standards)
which will lead to a federal takeover of education, taking away the authority from parents, teachers and local school boards as to what our children will learn.  We
have learned that common core standards is more about indoctrination than enlightenment.  However, it has been difficult for some of our state school board members
to accept this.  They keep relying on a resolution they passed at the same time they adopted national standards, stating that control would remain with Alabama.
 
That resolution has been violated and does not protect Alabama.  Alabama is fully committed to the centerpiece of the Obama administration and unless the school
board rescinds its vote to force Alabama into nationalized education, our parents will no longer have influence over their children's education, teachers will no longer be
able to write/teach their own lesson plans, and the citizens of Alabama will no longer have education sovereignty under the Tenth AmendmentThe attached letter 
signed by legislators makes this clear.  Hopefully, those state school board members who have been repeatedly misled by state school administrators will now listen to 
their constituents and vote to rescind their November 18, 2010 vote.  I understand a vote by the state school board could come as early as October 13.  So please contact 
your individual school board member and ask him/her to vote to rescind the November 18, 2010 vote.  This is urgent!
 
If your senator or representative signed the attached letter, please thank them for having the courage to stand up for Alabama and our children!  
Many legislators were asked but so far only these 14 have put their names forward to keep education decisions at the local and state level -- not at the federal level!
 
Club Presidents, please forward this email to your members.   
 
You are once again making a dramatic difference by your contacts with state school board members.  Already schools are hiring new instructors to teach how to implement
common core (after laying off/firing many teachers because of a shortage of funds), and Alabama will be forced to spend millions of dollars to implement common core, given
the example of other states.  We don't have the money for this and we don't want more federal intervention into our lives!  Your calls, emails, and letters are most important!
 
Tremendous thanks!

Texas Gov.Rick Perry describes what it was and why Alabama Board of Education gave away it's Educational Freedom to the Feds.

Just got off the phone with Gary Warren. He said that today they added some provision to the bill that says state school board will keep control. He pointed out that all the school boards in state are for this. My guess is like it or not we are going to be stuck with it unless Gov Riley stops it.
