STOP COMMON CORE IN WASHINGTON STATE
As a citizen and taxpayer of the State of Washington, I petition the Governor, the State Board of Education, the State School Superintendent, and every other entity invloved in Public Education 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. Washingtons 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 Washington State and the Washington House.
