Join the Fight to Stop Common Core North Carolina Catholic Schools

PetitionOver 1,000 concerned Catholic parents in the Milwaukee Archdiocese signed a petition to remove Common Core from their Catholic schools. Catholic parents are frustrated that school standards were changed without parental involvement or notification. Common Core standards threaten the independence and values of Catholic schools. The mission of Catholic Schools is to get children into heaven, not a community college. Common Core standards are untested experimental standards that introduce controversial teaching material. “We cannot experiment with children and young people,” exhorted Pope Francis. “Common Core is of its nature incomplete as it pertains to Catholic schools,” warn the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Since parent concerns have been ignored by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, they created a petition to inspire the four bishops in Wisconsin to remove Common Core from Catholic schools and follow the lead of the other bishops in the state who are decided against implementing the Standards. Concerned Catholic parents in North Carolina can take quick action by customizing this petition and asking the two Bishops of our State to remove Common Core from their Catholic schools. Time is of the essence. Let’s not begin another school with Common Core Standards that promote “moral relativism” and an “anti-religious bias.”

  • The children of North Carolina are unique and all different. Subjecting them to unnecessary testing and incorrect historical information is not in their best interest. Did we not learn anything from “NO CHILD LEFT UNTESTED” ? There is more than enough secularism in the public schools. Catholic schools should be concentrating on teaching the truth and the fundamental principles of our Faith!
