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.
MY 6 YEAR OLD NO LONGER WANTS TO GO TO SCHOOL SHE IS FRUSTRATED AFTER THE LONG HOURS OF HW SHE HAS TO DO EVERY NIGHT

My grand daughter is in kindergarten , i'm appalled at what she is bringing home . The standards are highly inappropriate for five year olds. I am a special educator.
These standards will lead to a generation that can't even read the Constitution because it's written in cursive which will not longer be taught.
