Those who follow this blog regularly know I have been engaged in fighting and the effort to stop Common Core in North Carolina. I’ve been at this nearly two years now and we’ve got a set of bills floating around the legislature here. These bills have been conferenced on and look to be heading to the floor of both houses in the coming week or so before the current session ends. North Carolina’s legislature is close to returning a true education to its children and restoring sovereignty over education to our state.
I’ve done as much as I can to spotlight the struggle here in North Carolina and to have worked other activists in other states on our “Common” problem. Many people have been fighting right alongside me for this outcome. I think we might get a bit more of a spotlight on our fight as I will be taking their energy, determination and a little bit of what I learned from each of them with me when I fly to Dallas to take part in Glenn Beck’s Common Core call to action event:
