In the past week, Congress has come out loud and clear against the federal government’s involvement in pressuring the states to adopt the Common Core State Standards Initiative. HSLDA believes that the sudden flurry of congressional action shows that the tireless work of ordinary moms and dads all across the nation against the Common Core is finally starting to pay off.
Last week, Senator Lindsey Graham introduced S. Res. 345, a powerful resolution pushing back against the Common Core State Standards Initiative and specifically calling for the federal government to “not incentivize the adoption of common education standards or the creation of a national assessment to align with such standards.” You can read a press release here.
The resolution is already co-sponsored by senators Tim Scott (South Carolina), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Mike Lee (Utah), Ted Cruz (Texas), James Inhofe (Oklahoma), Thad Cochran (Mississippi), Roger Wicker (Mississippi), and Mike Enzi (Wyoming).
