The calls worked! Tonight on the House floor, we witnessed the power of the individual – dedicated to the cause of liberty – bear fruit. Our just days old Action Item has been executed and won. The House voted affirmatively on an amendment to the budget removing the PARCC assessment references.
As with any potential shift in policy, there will be a multitude of solutions and offers coming from interested parties and organizations. We cannot allow another displacement of legislative authority to occur. Let’s remember what was accomplished with the House vote ~ 1) The PARCC assessment was not adopted via backdoor faux legislation buried in a budget bill and 2) We have sent the Common Core Standards back were they belong, to the legislature, where they can be completely vetted. It is the only means by which Ohioans have a voice and can hold their elected representatives accountable. We must stay focused and diligent as we weave our way through this process.
