Hello South Huntsville,
According to District 3 School Board Member Jennie Robinson, a pro-Common Core standards flyer has been distributed to throughout the Huntsville City School System, with the permission of the Huntsville City School Superintendent Casey Wardynski. Dr. Wardynski and Dr. Robinson believe that it is acceptable to use teachers in the classroom to distribute this flyer. The Huntsville City School system has taken the position that the flyer is not political. I know that I am not the only citizen who disagrees with that position. The Alabama Policy Institute has released a document titled the Common-Core-White-Paper which clarifies the arguments against Common Core standards. This website contains the best explanation I have seen with information regarding the opposition to the Common Core Standards. Eight US Senators, including our own Senator Jeff Sessions recently came out against the Common Core Standards. The Huntsville City School system is attempting to use our tax dollars to shape public opinion regarding the politics of education policy. The classroom should be dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and not be used to obtain the political ends of any individual or group. I have constructed this website so that you know how school administrators in Huntsville are using the time that your tax dollars are supporting. I encourage you to share my site with your friends and come back often, I will be updating the site as the situation changes. I will not let my tax money be spent defeating any citizen’s political ideology and I hope you join me by locating and contacting your state senators and representatives. Our lawmakers must put an end to the distribution of political propaganda in all Alabama classrooms.
