An Overview of Common Core

Apple CoreThere is an enormous amount of information sharing going on about Common Core. If a site is working against Common Core in a state other than your own, don’t hesitate to take the time to look at what it has to offer. Because Common Core is the Department of Education’s attempt to nationalize schooling, you will probably learn some things that are applicable to current events and policies in whatever state you live.

I found the pamphlet below at Stop Common Core in Washington State. Many of these facts are in my posts on Common Core, but if you’ve only recently heard about Common Core or would like information to hand out to others, Jenn Jones, Jaime Munns, and Darlene Eulie of As A Mom have written an excellent overview, Common Core: Something Rotten in Education. You can download it as an eight-page PDF pamphlet or one-page flyer of the eighth page. Click the images below to enlarge.

UPDATE: Welcome New Readers! You’ll find a complete list of all my posts on Common Core here, as well as links to Common Core White Papers.  If you’re not familiar with Truth in American Education, make sure you bookmark it, because Shane Vander Hart keeps up with the latest news on Common Core and provides a central hub of communication and links, including a list of groups fighting Common Core.
