OK-SAFE, Inc. – From our friends at ROPE and across the state comes the call for a Day of Activism – Against Common Core at the OK state Capitol, on Monday, March 17, 2014. The event runs from 11 am to 3 pm, with free T-shirts going to the first 300 people.
Common Core State Standards (which should really be called Bill Gates’ Common Core National Standards) are the Obama Care of education reform. Opposition to these national standards is mounting across the country (see here, here, here, and here). Oklahoma’s opposition, and high level research on the facts of the issue, has been led by ROPE, along with courageous moms, key educators, and some better-informed legislators.
Our good friends at the Tulsa912 Project say they will be heading to the Capitol Monday with “like-minded groups, parents and concerned citizens. If you would like to carpool and caravan with others from the Tulsa area, we will meet at the Reasor’s in Jenks (446 S. Elm, Jenks, OK). Departure will be promptly at 9 am. If you have questions contact Peggy at firstname.lastname@example.org”.
