The state oversight of private and parochial education is likely to increase slowly, especially along the lines of uniformity in statistics and records, sanitary inspection, common standards of work, and the enforcement of the attendance laws. In particular, the attitude toward the control of the child is likely to change. Each year the child is coming to belong more and more to the state, and less and less to the parent. - Ellwood P.

Missouri Coalition Against Common Core
Today we are launching a website dedicated to this issue, Missouri Coalition Against Common Core. There, we plan to provide background documentation and support materials that you can take to your legislator, school board member, PTA/PTO, and others to show the path we are on and the need for our state to get out of Common Core State Standards. The longer we wait, the harder it will be to extricate ourselves.
We have loaded some of the background material on there already and plan to add to it daily. There will be a petition that individuals and organizations can sign stating that we want out of CCSS. Please visit the site, join so that you can get action updates and share the link with others.
