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

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.


  • Nikki CC is an insult and an attack on the state's right to oversee education. Thank you for your consideration.

  • Tracy Stop dumming down our children. Let teachers actually teach and let students actually learn. It has always been done that way and has worked quite well!

  • Linda Dacar Please opt out of Common Core. It is an insult to our intelligence.
