MA Rep. Jim Lyons files Amendment to defund CCSSSubmitted by sawx75 on Sat, 04/12/2014 - 10:54
It's been a while since I've posted, but we have been real busy building C4L here in Massachusetts. We have a great opportunity to fight CCSS with an Amendment to the state budget. We have a champion in Jim Lyons that was willing to file Amendment #67 to completely defund CCSS and PARCC. A Link to the amendment is here
There are other amendments out there, but they offer the politicians wiggle room to claim they are against common core. C4L and Educate TLC (through local control) have been working together to fight Common Core here in MA, and we finally have something to rally behind. If you live in MA, please call or email your state rep and demand that they support Jim Lyons and Amendment #67 to H4000.
Also, If you are still interested in attending a C4L county meeting, make sure you go to C4L and sign up. You will be alerted to when the meetings will take place.
When they kicked us out as delegates, they thought we would go away. We did not. We now have a State Rep in Leah Cole, and two more warriors for liberty in Paddy Dolan, and our former C4L coordinator Brad Wyatt running for State Rep. We have been quiet on the boards, but busy in the streets.
So please support Amendment #67!
