Heartland Institute to host Common Core event in Palatine Illinois #stopcommoncore #ccss

When an ideologically diverse array of the nation’s top education activists and experts comes together within the pages of a single volume to speak out against the Common Core State Standards and related initiatives in education, the magnitude of the issue couldn’t be more clear.

An engineer, a social worker, a local school board member, an education blogger, moms, lawyers, and academic researchers — each of the contributors to this book’s 18 essays sheds light on a different aspect of Common Core. Together the essays offer a highly informed and troubling picture of the dangers this controversial reform package poses to students, families, education, and society.

They also demonstrate that real dialogue and cooperation acro ss political lines are not only possible but, in fact, crucial, both in defeating false reforms and establishing true education pathways that honor students, parents, and teachers alike.
