Join State Senator Josh McKoon and Sherena Arrington, recent guest on the Glenn Beck show, to learn why Georgians should oppose the Common Core in our public school system. Sen. McKoon will share information about his support of SB 167, legislation to withdraw Georgia from its participation in the Common Core.

Mrs. Arrington will speak on how the Common Core standards were foisted on the state of Georgia without any legislative oversight or parental input. She will explain how the Race to the Top agenda advances centralized educational control and workforce planning across the nation, both of which run contrary to the Republican principles of limited government, federalism, free enterprise, and the sovereignty of the people.
