Stand Up Against National Common Core Standards

In the wake of No Child Left Behind, proponents of nationalized education standards developed the Common Core Standards Initiative. This program is quickly becoming a tool by the Federal Government that is estimated by some to cost taxpayers close to $16 billion nationally to implement. There are real concerns that full implementation of Common Core will result in a loss of local and state control of education.

Americans for Prosperity-Indiana is opposed to Common Core, and believes education policy is best left at the local and state level. We are concerned that Indiana is heading down a path of even more federal involvement in our schools. It is important to study this issue, and as a state determine what standards will best meet the needs of Hoosier students.
