THE PETITION We reject the Federal Government's intrusion into our education system and want control over what is taught in our classroom returned to our state and local school boards. • Common Core removes control of our state k-12 education standards from New Hampshire and puts it in the hands of private trade organizations who wrote and copyrighted the standards and who are not accountable to the public which pays for their implementation. • It allows the federal government to dictate the terms of our teacher evaluations. • It makes it practically impossible for local school districts to control their costs because independent consortia develop assessment tools which our districts must use. These on-line assessments are not only many times more expensive than our existing tests, they are a technical impossibility for many schools in our state who do not have broadband access to the internet. • Common Core Standards are not internationally benchmarked as marketed, nor have they been tested and found to be superior to existing state standards. They have never been tried before. Their implementation in 45 states amounts to a massive pilot program that uses our children as test subjects. • Common Core assessments ramp up the collection of personally identifiable data on our children. Through various agreements this data will be sent directly to the US Department of Education who has changed the Family Education Rights Privacy Act (FERPA) to allow this data to be shared with other government agencies and third parties without our knowledge or consent. • The architect of the Common Core Standards has vowed to align the SAT tests to these standards thereby pressuring homeschoolers and private schools to teach to these standards as well. Millions of children will be lost inside a one size fits all system designed to create equal mediocrity among the new “global citizens.”

    I support democratic public schools and I should be able to question and appeal my child's curriculum without punishment.

    Our school, Lisbon Regional High, blindsided parents with Common Core--never calling it CC, rather using words like new College and Career Ready Standards, taking kids into the 21st century, Rigorous New Standards, Internationally Bench marked. We were duped and lied to--but more than that, never asked. The best the SAU superintendent could offer at a school board meeting where parents went to voice concerns was "these standards have been around for a long time". Local control is gone.
    Common Core is a con job and so purposefully misleading in its implementation, many parents don't even know it is in our school. LRS is careful not to use the words CC. I only learned what it was by asking in a private email, directly to the superintendent, if the new standards were CC or something else? The SAU is fully on board and parents are an annoyance. Parents are replaced by government. In addition, at least in our school, they silence objections from students to the dumbed down standards by implementing Habits of Learning. My son complained, and although he got all 4s, the new "sort of" version of an A, would never make it on Principal's List again. He was too frustrated with the new system and said so. His Habits of Learning were the stick to coerce silence and be a good student. Freedom of Speech? Not for kids vocal about their dislike of CC. A letter to the Principal about what was happening? Unanswered. Did the local school board vote on this? Unanswered. Parents in our town have moved, began home schooling, or tried desperately to get into private schools. This is huge in our community and it appears, at least to the school, no big deal. The action plan appears to be: If you ignore parents, ignore student concerns, eventually they will be silenced and comply. The standards aren't going anywhere, and parents will give up. Thank you for your work on behalf of parents and students in our state.
