Adoption of the Common Core standards will be too costly for California

On May 14, I attended a Lodi Unified School District board meeting dealing with the implementation of Common Core state standards. I found out that our school board does not care what Common Core is going to do to education.

When I finally got a chance to speak, after sitting and listening for 2 1/2 hours, I was allowed three minutes and told to wrap it up. Funny how the trustees can talk as long as they want, and we, who put them in those positions, only get three minutes.

Common Core is to the schools what Obamacare is to health care. It is a costly national takeover of education. My hope is that parents are going to wake up and realize they will lose control of their children’s education if this unconstitutional mandate is passed. The cost is $1.6 billion for California taxpayers. $165,500 over five years per district.

The worst part is a national Longitudinal Database with all your child’s personal information. This will not be held private. Look up “Stop Common Core” online.

One of the school board members said this was a mandate and they had no choice. Good thing the patriots who fought during the Revolutionary War didn’t say, “Oh, it’s a mandate from the king, we have no choice.”
