Today Senators Lamping and Emery and Representative Bahr held a press conference on the passage of HB1490 which returned local control of education to the state.
The ladies speaking after Rep. Bahr from the Missouri Coalition Against Common Core were Gretchen Logue, Mary Byrne, myself and Jill Carter.
The main message is that this legislation is just the beginning of a new direction in education, a rebuttal of big education and big business’s attempts to turn education into a profit center whose sole focus is to produce workers for tomorrow.
We have heard Michael Petrelli of Fordham has predicted this will just be a rebranding/renaming of the standards. We will be responding to his claim soon.
