Find Your Legislators - and email or call them

Ask these questions of your Representative and Senator

  1. Ask to see the cost analysis on Common Core. Ask what will this cost us and where the money is coming from.
  2. Ask if you, the parents or taxpayer, are unhappy with the standards…how we can amend them?
  3. Ask to see the scientific studies upon which the academic foundations of Common Core rest.
  4. Ask to opt your child out of the data tracking system (called “Achievement in Montana” or AIM) and what is the process to do that.
  5. Ask if they would be willing to introduce a bill to halt Common Core in Montana and give local control to districts to set their own high standards.

What can you expect?

Most will probably tell you that it is too late.  Montana has accepted these standards and we are locked into them.  But that isn’t the whole story.  Many states are now deciding to opt-out of Common Core and the Student Data Mining Systems.  And these movements started and became successful because of people like YOU.

Common Core is set to be fully implemented by fall of 2014!  We do have time, but not much!  Montana has an opportunity to adopt truly high standards, and resist the intrusive federal government power grab.
