South Carolinians Oppose Common Core State Standards

82 Signatures Goal: 100

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.

    My son is failing math this year and he has done fine in the previous years. These learning procedures really are just nonsense.
