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'm a welder that deals with math and fractions all day. My son is in second grade and I'm having trouble understanding what he's trying to explain. How am I suppose to help my son if he needs help, if I don't know how to help him. Common core needs to go!

    The math common core is a way to stress our kids. The subtraction part of it is even worse!

    Who thought this style of math was good for anything other than taking a very simple math problem and turning it into a mass of confusion with no practicle purpose at all? This is redicous and useless and a waste of valuable time. Was there something wrong with subtracting 51-9 the old way? Why the need to force kids to reference 7 other steps to get the answer?

    Common Core discourages children, impairs teachers' creativity and frustrates parents
