Here is a flyer to distribute re: Common Core to churches and friends and family in Alabama. Information is useful for anyone that want to study common core.
Video of Georgia Press Conference as to why they are pulling out. Common Core was not pilot-tested. You can really say Georgia and Kentucky were the places it was pilot tested and it failed their students. They were some of the first states to implement it and the fruits are rather ugly. This is what happens when there is no criteria to the standards as the interview with a city school superintendent in Alabama clearly indicates.
Here are front page links (apples on top):
