1,549 Signatures Goal: 150

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 know Maggie for years and if she is standing in the way of dumping Common Core she just lost my future votes . Her husband was head of PEA as I feel he was living in a bubble and out of touch with those of us in the real world perhaps Maggie is as well . Their children have had the benefits our sons and daughters may never have and to think they have a disabled child. I would like to hope she rethinks her stance on Common Core and how it is literally destroying our children's love of learning but disrupting family time and bonding. I will not ever support the government. Controlling so much of my life as I am disabled and already deal with endless government red tape. We must have a rally or form a group to stand and voice our opinions in a public forum peacefully . So much is happening in our world that is scary . Why can't our children love learning. That is the key to Winning the race not Common Core,

    I remember learning at school. Now my sons have hours of home work and are only 7 amid 10 and what comes hi,e is not taught in class so we mustnfiguremitmoit and we all end up,crying and thrn it is a call that your,child,need an IEP. Almost every parent ink ow is going down this road of pure frustration. Our kids are stressed out and so,are the parents. Kids no longer play outside after school,as they have loads of writing and math that is so,complex and the bar is so,high a few meet it as thrynhabebparents who,can hire tutors and no,child,is,left,behind? Really no,child laughs and enjoys learning anymore! Please do,something about,this. My son is 7 and not one teacher has taught him. To read. They expect him to learn after sitting in a chair for 6.5 hours and come home and read to me and fill out a form of how ,a,he hour per week he read and he had no basic training to begin with. I learned in kindergarten and we had one on one in the hall with a teacher for an hour per day and it was FUN! Math was FUN! Now my sons hate school and hate summer as they must study to prepare for common core ! Please throw Coomin Core I the trash where it belongs! Our childeren all learn differently and through passion and great teachers who are not yelling as they are stressed out! This must stop, assessments and tests are all my sons think about and THRY are too young to have such anxiety. ADHD IS A NY PRODUCT OF OUR SCHOOL SYSYTEM, kids are just so frustrated they would rather day dream or run or act out as classes are prison camps for 6.5 hours per day. My sons are smart and I can read at home with them but if I give them a book of Common core lessons THRY cry! Stop hurting our kids and their love of learning now!
