Whereas, the Common Core State Standards is an initiative designed by private corporations to profit from children in Maury County and all of the State of Tennessee. And,

Whereas, the Maury County School District must purchase the Common Core State Standards program, including the curriculum, books, teaching guides, workbooks, software, and testing from these and approved private corporations. And,

Whereas, the following federal laws specifically prohibit federal control and a national curriculum for all public schools.

The Department of Education Organizational Act, established in 1979, Section 103b

The General Education Provisions Act

The Elementary and Secondary Act enacted in 1965

No Child Left Behind Act of 2002.

The Common Core State Standards were developed in collusion, designed to circumvent the spirit of federal law, andthe name itself is a play on words in an attempt to deflect federal involvement. And,

Whereas, the Council of Chief School Officers and National Governors Association own the Common Core State Standards program. The State of Tennessee and Tennesseans pay tens of thousands of dollars in dues annually for Governor Haslam and Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman to belong to these private corporations. And,

Whereas, Pearson Foundation, a partner in this endeavor, has paid so far $7.7 million in fines, for arranging private junkets to Helsinki, London, Rio de Janeiro and Singapore with and for the Council of Chief School Officers. And,

Therefore the Common Core State Standards is clearly an undeniable case of crony capitalism or Corporatocracy, and must be opposed on face value alone.
