South Carolina adopted the Common Core State Standards with little or no input from its citizens. We oppose the standards on the basis of poor content and loss of state control over education. We oppose the spending of taxpayer dollars on a controversial unproven program that we believe will be detrimental to our state, our educational system, and our children.

Common core is not what I want for my kids. Keep it out of South Carolina!
My son is failing math this year and he has done fine in the previous years. These learning procedures really are just nonsense.
My child has a learning disability in reading comprehension and ADHD. He can not do the math. He is in danger of failing because the 4th grade math makes no sense to him. His resource teacher couldn't do the math. If the teacher can't do it how do you expect a child to do it?
