Minnesota Advocates and Champions for Children Mission

Little Girl in ClassroomOur mission is to inform the people of Minnesota about the federal education initiative, known as Common Core State Standards. Our task is to provide educational support through town hall meetings as well as assistance to school boards and legislative bodies. Our goal is to fully repeal Common Core State Standards and No Child Left Behind in Minnesota, through our grassroots call to action.

Yes, CCSS is in Minnesota!

 

Your Kids

As that erie famous saying goes….”They’re Heeeerrrrrreee”, so is Common Core, regardless of what some other “official” sites may state. Common Core Language Arts was approved by Pawlenty in 2009 through the stimulus. Minnesota said yes to Common Core English Language Arts , if you have a child that attends a public, private or charter school for that matter and you’re wondering if they’ve implemented Common Core, simply give them a call and ask.

Interestingly enough, they will tell you…only the language arts portion. However, if your child’s school has rolled out STEM, you should know that the makers of STEM┬áhave partnered with Common Core to align their curriculum to the new standards and all that goes with it.
More to come!
