Common Core Question Goes to the Legislature
As you may have heard, the initiative petition to end Common Core in Massachusetts cleared a major hurdle late last year. With the help of hundreds of grassroots volunteers, the campaign submitted over 100,000 raw signatures to the secretary of state, over 80,000 of which were certified. This victory means the question will now be sent to the legislature.
The Legislature has until May 3rd to act on the question which has been given bill number H 3929. If the legislature ignores or votes down H 3929 we will need to help gather an additional 10,792 signatures beginning in May in order to make the ballot in November. We need your to help to ensure the legislature doesn’t ignore the wishes of the tens of thousands of parents who signed the petition because they want Massachusetts schools to remain #1.
The focus of the campaign over the next several months will be to encourage legislators to listen to the wishes of their constituents and pass H 3929. We need your help to identify members who support and oppose the ballot question so we can focus our efforts more effectively. Please take the time to contact your legislators and tell them to listen to the over 80,000 parents and educators who signed the petition and vote to pass H 3929.
