I would like to hear from people who have had an experience with any aspect of Common Core that illustrates a loss of local control. If you have seen real issues with what the standards, assessments, curriculum, and database tracking are doing to our schools and children, I want to know what’s going on in South Dakota. Please use the “contact us” link under the “about” tab to share. I will not share your personal information. Do know, that there is a good chance I will be publishing your comments, using your first name only. If you could also let me know what your relationship is to CC, such as parent, grandparent, teacher, school board member, legislator, etc. and where you are from.
