The Marietta Daily Journal – GOP leaders join anti Common Core stance

via The Marietta Daily Journal – GOP leaders join anti Common Core stance.

This month the Republican National Committee adopted a resolution denouncing the Common Core State Standards, while Saturday local Republican districts, such as District 6, representing parts of Cobb, Fulton and DeKalb counties, followed suit.

“I believe it would be very wise for our education leaders to thoroughly examine all the ramifications of choosing to implement the Common Core curriculum and not be shortsighted to fill a budget shortfall,” said state Sen. Judson Hill (R-east Cobb), chairman of the Cobb Legislative Delegation.

Cobb GOP Chairman Joe Dendy said he believes the general public is unaware of the ultimate goal of Common Core.

As for the school board, “I would really ask them to be extremely cautious and do their due diligence in finding out about the Common Core curriculum and not take the word of the publishers because they’re just out to sell textbooks,” Dendy said.
