The Marietta Daily Journal – ‘Countering the Common Core’ coming to Cobb

MARIETTA — The grassroots pushback against the controversial Common Core education standards adopted by Georgia and 44 other states is showing no signs of letting up — and Cobb County continues to be at the forefront of the fight.

State Sen. William Ligon (R-Brunswick) will be coming to Marietta June 22 to speak at a Common Core panelist discussion organized by Concerned Women for America of Georgia and the American Principles Project.

The event, dubbed “Countering Common Core: You’ve heard the spin — now get the truth,” will include Ligon and several other speakers with expertise on the subject, organizers said.

Besides Ligon, other speakers in the lineup are Jamie Gass of the Pioneer Institute; Bill Evers of the conservative Hoover Institute; and Emmett McGroarty and Jane Robbins, both from the American Principles Project.
