Petition Governor Pat McCrory to opt-out of Common Core state education standards

1,135 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Common Core is a progressive program that will dumb down our kids by chipping away at academic excellence in the name of fairness, diversity and social justice. It is nothing more than a federal takeover of school curriculum and standards across the country. Common Core’s standards undermine local control of education by forcing us to use their progressive curricular materials and forces untested, mediocre and incoherent theories on America’s schoolchildren. Governor McCrory, please take a long hard look and this program and get North Carolina out of it.

    Common Core is laced with Sharia doctrine besides confusing our students and parents. Parents are not able to help their children with their homework in most instances. Common Core creates a huge amount of excess work for Teachers and students.

    Keep control of our schools out of federal hands. Local control doesn't mean low standards.NC children deserve better than common core

    Bill Gates, one of the largest contributors, avoids "Common Core" education for his children by sending them to Lakeside Prep. I believe he wants what is best for his children, and therefore has chosen not to subject them to Common Core. How appropriate!
