The Missouri Board of Education (DESE) adopted the national K-12 Common Core Standards in English and Math in 2010 in order to score points on a federal grant competition (Race to the Top) … a competition we did not win….money we did not get! As a result we now have the common core standards, and they are of poor quality.• They fail to prepare students for studies in science, technology, engineering and math.• They put our students two years behind their peers in high-performing countries by eight grade, and even worse for high school. • In English language arts, the Common Core severely de-emphasizes the study of classic literature in the favor of the drab and simplistic “informational” texts. It does this despite the fact that the overwhelming evidence is that children should be reading more classic literature.• Prominent child psychiatrists and psychologists have heavily criticized the standards as being age-inappropriate for young children.Material to be covered:1. The History of Common Core Standards – The Players, the Money, the Deception2. Missouri Statutes that protect Local Control of Education3.

A Message from Missouri Moms Against Common Core

If you want to come and be a part of the voice of those who oppose Common Core, plan to come to Jefferson City on Wednesday. There will be school board candidates, school board members, teachers, parents, concerned citizens, grandparents, and patriotic Americans/Missourians in attendance on Wednesday. Powerful voices from all different walks of life and political persuasion will be there to stand in the gap for our children and the future of our country. If you can come, you should try to attend. Many are already planning to be there, but the more the better. Make it a priority to be there if you can. Looking forward to being part of the solution that day! Hope to see you there.
