Stop Common Core in New York State

2,354 Signatures Goal: 10,000

As a citizen and taxpayer of the State of New York, I petition the Governor, the State Board of Education, the State School Superintendent, and the New York General Assembly to take every action necessary to rescind the State’s participation in Race to the Top, the Common Core State Standards, any agreement to share student data with the federal government or any other governmental or private entity, any national-testing consortium , and any scheme (such as No Child Left Behind waivers) that requires such participation. New York’s citizens, who pay approximately $13 billion annually in state and local taxes for education, have the constitutional right to exercise 100 percent control over the content standards in our public schools through our duly elected representatives in the New York Senate and the New York House.

    I think it is so sad that the state would allow the emotional abuse of our children to go on. Having to worry that if they get wrong answers on a test may get their favorite teacher fired, one who has made such a difference in their academic career. Some kids just do not test well under these conditions, test the teachers abilities and leave our kids alone.

    My daughter has special needs and cannot comprehend this stupidity that is called common core. I dont even understand it sometimes and I now am researching homeschooling my child as a result. Is this the states way to have people fall out of school and take less paying jobs so the rich can get richer. Its totally stupid and for a child with special needs its torture. You MUST want children to fail!! I"m totally disgusted.
