Common Core curriculum and testing is unconstitutional and impractical. Therefore, it should be removed from the education system.
The 10th Amendment clearly states that any power not given to the federal government by the Constitution is to remain the decision of the states. Education is not mentioned in the Constitution; therefore, the federal government should not take charge of education.
In addition, the estimated failure rate of students taking the Common Core tests is 60 percent or higher. Is the knowledge of students so low that three out of five fail, or is it that the Common Core testing system is broken?
HB 2165 would repeal Common Core curriculum and testing. I support this bill and would like you to do the same. I would like the people of this state to think about this issue and decide what is best for the students of Washington state.
