Action Alerts

ILLINOIS:

There are now resolutions in both houses of the Illinois General Assembly which call for the delay of Common Core implementation and the PARRC standardized testing.  These resolutions asks that the Illinois Department of Education delay implementation to study the financial feasibility of Common Core and determine how funding can be achieved.

The ‘delay’ or ‘pause’ strategy has been used in several states as a first step in defeating Common Core.

There is also a bill which limits the sharing of student data without parental consent.

The Common Core System is not a law that can simply be repealed; it is a set of separate programs that were implemented by the Illinois School Board.

    I would hope that the legislature would simply reject the entire idea of CC. It is horrible and people in the state of NY among others are also already rejecting it. We need to do the same here in Illinois while we still can.

    School is ignoring us with our concerns. We are the “bad” parents hurting our sons education. My son loved math, tested above average and is now below average and cries almost every night doing his math homework he no longer understands. Hey, I don’t even understand 3rd grade math.
    HELP! get us out of CC!!!

    I noticed you don’t have the Harlem Consolidated School District 122 listed. It mainly serves Loves Park and Machesney Park near Rockford. The next Board meeting is June 16 at 6 pm at the Harlem Administration Center on Roosevelt Road. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of awareness of Common Core here. I’m a former teacher and currently a tutor. I put things on Facebook and contact representatives. What else can be done? I have two young children and don’t want them exposed to Common Core.
