10-14-15 – Truth For Our Time heard on at 10-11a.m. cdt, on www.webcastonelive.com. Dr. Karen Effrem from Education Liberty Watch and Florida Stop Common Core Coalition, and Jane Robbins from American Principles Project discussed the recent letter sent to congress (10-13-15) urging them to suspend work on reauthorizing No Child Left Behind.
The letter was sent to congressional education leaders responsible for crafting the bill – House Education Chairman John Kline (R-MN), Ranking Member Robert Scott (D-VA), Senate Education Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA)
In an impressive show of revolt, the six page letter has five pages of signatures from representatives of 180 groups in 45 states. Americans are pushing back against federal intrusion and overreach, the press release
This letter strongly urges suspension of work on this bill “until a new administration is elected that, we hope, will follow the rule of law and the Constitution regarding the proper federal role in education.”This request is being made because:“…for a conference report to be acceptable to this President, given the administration’s dangerous record in so many aspects of the ESEA and related statutes and programs, the report would be completely unacceptable to us and our membership – the millions of families, students, and in many cases teachers, such as the majority of those surveyed from Tennessee that oppose implementation of Common Core, of this nation who are affected by these policies.”…This is a powerful statement from grassroots organizations across the nation that we demand the elimination of federal control over education.”
Please take 2 minutes seconds to call your congressional delegation and tell them to vote NO on the ESEA reauthorization: 202.224.3121.
