ALERT: H.R. 5 – Student Success Act

AlertH.R. 5 is the Student Success Act. This bill has had a few versions, but the net-net of it is that it’s a vehicle to entrench Common Core for another 7 years, has an emphasis on high stakes testing usurps parental rights, digs into religious freedom and reduced local control.

If parents want to give input, now is the time. House Education Committee members, Representatives and Senators need to be contacted before this heads to a vote possibly on Tuesday, February 24th. Update: It looks like it might be Friday the 27th now.

For the record, John Kline is the Sponsor.
