Representative Bolin asking for SD citizen support against Common Core on Jan 29

January 27, 2014

NoCommonCoreThis Wednesday, Jan 29, South Dakota State Representative Jim Bolin (R-16, Lincoln, Union) has requested help from citizens to fight against Common Core. Here is a portion of the request as posted on the South Dakotans Against Common Core website:

Representative Jim Bolin was one of the first in South Dakota to expose this leviathan called Common Core. He, along with other legislators have worked tirelessly to educate the public and remove this beast from our state and schools. He has requested our presence in the South Dakota Legislature on January 29, 2014.
We will spend the day in the capitol and most importantly, be in the gallery for the House session at 2 pm. There will be the opportunity to lobby legislators face to face. We need you to share your experience as a parent and your child’s experiences with the Common Core with as many legislators as possible. This is your opportunity to speak with almost every legislator in one place, in one day. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
Representative Bolin has also asked if you could bring examples of the work your child is being asked to do that is aligned to the Common Core to share with legislators. We all saw Karen Lamoreaux testify before the Arkansas Board of Education regarding the 108 steps to do the math, and the impact that had.

Please wear a red shirt on January 29, 2014.  We will have buttons for you to wear.
Some have asked to be able to testify. There will be a House Education Committee meeting at 7:45 am. You can find the agenda of that meeting and what bills they will take testimony and vote on here. If you would like to testify regarding these bills all you have to do is sign up on the sheet in the meeting room at the beginning  of the meeting.
If you would like to bring your children, you are welcome to do that. Because this is a situation where you will be talking to legislators one on one, if your children are very young, please consider whether  you will be able to have a conversation with legislators if you have young children with you.

I will be unable to attend to this event; but I would urge others to attend and share their experiences with South Dakota legislators. This is a great chance to show elected officials that parents do care about their children’s education. For more information on this event see the full post at the South Dakotans Against Common Core website.

    I think the admin of this site is truly working hard in support of his web
    site, because here every data is quality based information.
