1,888 Signatures Goal: 150

THE PETITION We reject the Federal Government's intrusion into our education system and want control over what is taught in our classroom returned to our state and local school boards. • Common Core removes control of our state k-12 education standards from New Hampshire and puts it in the hands of private trade organizations who wrote and copyrighted the standards and who are not accountable to the public which pays for their implementation. • It allows the federal government to dictate the terms of our teacher evaluations. • It makes it practically impossible for local school districts to control their costs because independent consortia develop assessment tools which our districts must use. These on-line assessments are not only many times more expensive than our existing tests, they are a technical impossibility for many schools in our state who do not have broadband access to the internet. • Common Core Standards are not internationally benchmarked as marketed, nor have they been tested and found to be superior to existing state standards. They have never been tried before. Their implementation in 45 states amounts to a massive pilot program that uses our children as test subjects. • Common Core assessments ramp up the collection of personally identifiable data on our children. Through various agreements this data will be sent directly to the US Department of Education who has changed the Family Education Rights Privacy Act (FERPA) to allow this data to be shared with other government agencies and third parties without our knowledge or consent. • The architect of the Common Core Standards has vowed to align the SAT tests to these standards thereby pressuring homeschoolers and private schools to teach to these standards as well. Millions of children will be lost inside a one size fits all system designed to create equal mediocrity among the new “global citizens.”

    STRONGLY am against Common Core along with all these ridiculous, non educational, no achievement measurement assessment testing that not only ask our children completely non subject related questions that should be illegal to ask our children due to privacy violations, but also for the simple fact that children should NEVER be asked any non academic related questions without a parent or legal guardian present.
    Our police department can't even legally ask our children (MINORS!) these things without our consent, so how is this legal to do through our school systems?! With 8yr olds?! If I wanted my children studied for attitudes and behavior, belief's and virtues, I wouldn't have it done through government resources! I also wouldn't be having it entered ONLINE. There are so many other horrible things going on with this entire Common Core system. Its wrong for our kids. Its wrong for our teachers. It doesn't encourage or result in our children being intelligent. After my children informed me about the invasive questions they were asked, and all the time spent in class not only taking these tests, but studying and prepping and practice testing for them... ITS INSANE the amount of time WASTED that could and SHOULD be used on education for our kids. Know the difference between what an assessment is, and what achievement testing is. One studies human behavior. the other tells you what they have learned. Classroom tests, grades, teacher evaluations...Those all can tell you this. Not these assessments.

    Common Core is psychological child abuse and needs to be ended.
