Stop Common Core in Tennessee
As a citizen and taxpayer of the State of Tennessee, I petition the Governor, the State Board of Education, the State School Superintendent, and the Tennessee General Assembly to take every action necessary to rescind the state’s participation in Race to the Top, the Common Core State Standards Initiative, 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. Tennessee’s citizens, who pay approximately $8 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 Tennessee Senate and the Tennessee House.

Gov Haslam on Common Core
He states "Common Core has been proven to work."
Really? Where? Since they are so obsessed with data, "Show us the Data." It doesn't exist. Common Core was never piloted or tested. Anywhere.
