Please say no to SB 668 and SB 669 by Senator Crowe.
Every student in Louisiana deserves the highest caliber of education that we can give them. When they graduate, they should be equipped with the knowledge and skills to thrive in the 21st century and be able to compete with not only other students in Louisiana, but other students from across the country and world.
Louisiana made the decision to adopt the Common Core State Standards because they represent a high bar for learning and preparedness for college and careers. The Common Core aligned assessment proposed for Louisiana, the PARCC, will help educators, families, and students determine how much progress our students have made towards reaching this bar and how they are doing as compared to their peers across our country.
Our teachers and students have been preparing for these standards and for the PARCC for years now. They have made huge investments in technology, professional development, curricular materials, etc. To turn back now would cause a lot of unnecessary uncertainty and chaos for all.
As charter school leaders, educators, and supporters, we stand united in our support for Common Core and PARCC. Please do not jeopardize the incredible progress we've made and our students' futures-- Please say NO to SB 668 and SB 669!
