Fla. parents join national day of protest against Common Core

Florida is one of 17 states where parents are planning to protest the Common Core curriculum by keeping their children home from school on Monday.

While no official group is backing the protest, grassroots organizers are promoting the protest on SayNoToCommonCore.com and through social media, including the Facebook page, “National Don’t Send Your Child To School Day… November 18, 2013.”

The website’s press release states:

This event is part of a national protest against the Common Core State Standards and it will take place in every state across this great country!

The eighteenth of November is significant to our movement, not only because this is the first day of American Education Week, but it is also Revolution Day!! Organizers are encouraging parents, students, teachers, and others to join the cause…

Please participate in this event and encourage everyone you know to do the same! We recommend that you keep your children out of school on November 18th and help us send a message to the federal government. We the people want evidence-based curriculum that is locally controlled and which does not require data mining our children. Instead of sending your children to school on November 18th, get your children out in public and raise awareness by educating others on the dangers of the Common Core State Standards!!!

Other states participating include New York, Connecticut, Michigan, Tennessee, Ohio, Louisiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Florida, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, North Carolina, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Alaska, according to The Free Patriot.
