Florida Parents Against Common Core is a Parent Led Grassroots Initiative to Stop Common Core in Florida.
Alert for Immediate Action
|Bills to be read by Education Committee|
We are in the final hours. Parents and Grandparents all across Florida have been in a battle the last 12 months to make our voices heard. We are very close to victory but we aren't done yet.
We only have 3 weeks left to get HB25 and it's companion SB1316 read in committee. If the education committee does not read these bills in committee, then they will be considered "dead in committee" and not even make it for a democratic vote in the house or senate this session.
We are asking for all parents, grandparents, and concerned Florida voters to contact our leadership. Our education committee chairmen Rep Erik Fresen, Rep Marlene O'Toole and Senator John Legg needs to rightfully give the parents the respect we deserve and stop ignoring our request.
If these bills do not get heard our children's education is in jeopardy. Common Core State Standards are not the highest and best standards nor have they ever been internationally benchmarked. They are an experiment that needs further review.
HB25 and SB1316 will call on public hearings in every district, a deeper review of the standards, and ensure quality secured testing.
