As a citizen and taxpayer of the State of Minnesota, I petition the Governor, the Department of Education, the Board of School Administrators, and the Minnesota Legislature to take every action necessary to rescind and/or terminate Minnesota’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.

Common Core State Standards are inferior to Minnesota’s standards, serve as a vehicle for Federal control over local public education and make local control obsolete. Minnesota’s citizens, who pay approximately $16.5 billion annually in state and local taxes for education, have the constitutional right to exercise 100% control over the content and standards in our public schools through our duly elected representatives in the Minnesota Senate and the Minnesota House.
