House Bill 2621: Nullifies the Common Core
Sponsors:
Committee on Education
Summary:

This bill declares portions of the Common Core standards "null and void," and prevents future enhancements to the Common Core from taking effect. The bill also establishes an advisory council to assist in the adoption and development of state standards.

HSLDA's Position:
Support.
Action Requested:

1. Please call your Kansas state representative before Wednesday. Use this link to find out who he or she is. Your message can be as simple as: “Please vote yes on HB 2621. It will get Kansas out of the Common Core mess and give Kansans the power to control their own educational destiny again.”

 This affects everyone, so it is not necessary to identify yourself as a homeschooler. 

2. Get connected with other groups that are working hard to get Kansas out of the Common Core.

Status:

02/11/2014 - Introduced in the House

02/12/2014 - Referred to the House Committee on Education.
