MA Rep. Jim Lyons files Amendment to defund CCSS

Hi everybody.
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!

Liberty Rising in Massachusetts!!!

C4L and ETLC are really ramping up the fight against Common Core in Massachusetts. (Full disclosure: I work with both ETLC and C4L in Mass)

The fight against Common Core in Massachusetts is strong and our success in defeating Common Core can have profound affect on the larger battle. Common Core proponents NEED Massachusetts on board. Massachusetts, through its own local control of education, has been ranked the #1 state in the country by leaps and bounds. Massachusetts also ranks 3-4 internationally. Massachusetts' success is exactly because of local control of education. Our success stands on its on merits, and in direct defiance of federally controlled education. Massachusetts is the trophy common core proponents require on their mantle piece. Lets take it back!!!

Representative Jim Lyons' budget amendment will FULLY DEFUND COMMON CORE IN MASSACHUSETTS. Lets get the word out and help support Jim Lyons' Amendment #67 to H.4000 - An Amendment in Defense of Local Education

Some more background on Massachusetts and Common Core can be seen in this video produced by Common Core opposition group "Educate Through Local Control" (ETLC)
