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 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?
Help stop common core.
Please, put a stop to Common Core in Oakbrook Elementary. Charleston, S.C. My children were all A students before C.C. Now they have C's and B's. Their self esteem and confidence have suffered greatly. Please help! M. Taylor
