The U.S. Department of Education (Department) is offering each State educational agency (SEA) the opportunity to request flexibility on behalf of itself, ... This voluntary opportunity will provide educators and State and local leaders with flexibility regarding specific requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB)...Prior to submitting this request, Alabama teachers, leaders, college and university faculty, and lay citizens reviewed the Alabama standards and the Common Core State Standards and compiled the best of both into the Alabama College-and Career-Ready Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts,
Remember: Common Core State Standards are copyrighted-not owned by the state . "Compiled the best of both" means the copyrighted Common Core State Standards plus the state's specific standards(up to 15% and which will not be tested).No changes can by made by the states. There will no longer be the recourse for parents to help effect change through their school board. Please study and learn of the loss of parental input; the emphasis on testing, data gathering and psycho-analysis. Repeal Common Core while you can! It is worse than you think as the developers of Tx CSCOPE helped develop Common Core!!! This is so bad RNC just passed an Anti-Common Core Resolution!
