October 10, 2013 - Humboldt SD

My School Says It’s Just Standards.
Isn’t That True?

Common Core
  • is a set of national K-12 standards that takes away local control of South Dakota Schools and shifts all control to the Federal Government in exchange for the promise of Federal Funds
  • gives the Federal Government and certain large corporations access to your child’s private personal and biological information for data collection WITHOUT PARENTAL NOTIFICATION OR CONSENT.
  • is a top-down approach to education imposed upon ALL South Dakota K-12 (maybe earlier) students in PUBLIC, PRIVATE AND HOME SCHOOLS by the South Dakota Board of Education.
  • was quietly developed by private entities, called “stake holders” which benefit them financially when states adopt Common Core Standards. These entities were not subject to sunshine laws or open meetings
