Cornerstone - Common Core Prohibition Reaches the Governor's Desk

Cornerstone Action

 Cornerstone would like to thank the New Hampshire Senate and House of Representatives for passing an important piece of legislation today. If signed by the Governor, will prohibit the state from requiring implementation of Common Core Standards.

Parents, students and teachers across New Hampshire sent letters and testified in support of SB101 based on the problems they are seeing in their local schools with the implementation of Common Core.  SB101 clarifies that Common Core is not a mandate on schools and that they are free to use better academic standards in their district.
Cornerstone urges Governor Hassan to listen to the people of New Hampshire and sign SB101 into law.  

Executive Director Bryan McCormack commented, "We are grateful that the House and Senate responded in favor of the testimony from numerous parents across New Hampshire. We can do better than Common Core and parents are not only seeing that but taking action for their families. We now hope to sit down with Governor Hassan and discuss the next step for this important bill."
