Stop Common Core in New York State

2,426 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 can't help my grandchildren with their homework. I raised three children and one is a math teacher. I never had a problem helping them with their math problems. Children learn by memorization from the moment they are born when parents sing the same songs,repeat the same words and later as they grow to toddlers, they take great comfort in repetition. Memorizing the times table makes far more sense, considering children learn this way from birth to school age.
