Dozens of protesters fanned out at the Capitol yesterday, trying to convince lawmakers to put the brakes on Common Core State Standards.
A coalition of groups working under the monikerFloridians Against Common Core Education is organizing rallies opposing the new teaching standards that are being phased in nationwide.
Florida is on schedule to complete its roll out of Common Core by the fall of 2014.
Dr. Karen Effrem is a pediatrician and president ofEducation Liberty Watch, a Minnesota-based limited government group that supports parents as the final authority over their child’s education.
“Common Core was adopted by the appointed State Board of Education. There wasn’t a single elected legislator or county school board member that had a voice,” Effrem said. “It is extraordinarily dangerous.”
