Many homeschoolers across the country have pushed hard in opposition to the latest business/educational manipulations – Common Core State Standards. There is even a Facebook page invite for families Thinking of Homeschooling to Escape the Common Core. Currently in the news, some Michigan and New Hampshire parents are taking some active positions and watches on the latest federal move to centralize our children’s education.
Michigan’s state senator Howard Walker recently introduced a resolution [Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 12] exempting homeschooling families from any Common Core and associated assessment intrusions to their learning. In New Hampshire, homeschoolers and other families concerned about their communities’ education are also fighting back.
