Wyoming Citizens Opposing Common Core is a statewide, non-partisan group of parents, grandparents, teachers, students, community leaders and others all advocating for education. Our sole purpose is to end the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Wyoming.
We have found ourselves united by a mutual interest in preserving innovation, choice, local and parental control, and wise use of state resources in education. We also hold dear constitutional principles that are at odds with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards.
The Common Core initiative and the practices that will inevitably follow are a clear threat to our freedoms as citizens, parents and educators. It is our greatest hope that this website will serve as a useful resource for Wyoming citizens and legislators as they educate themselves about this issue. There is a tremendous price to be paid in freedoms, cost and privacy. We take very seriously our responsibilities in this undertaking, and we will do our utmost to be vigilant that the content we provide remains reliable and truthful.
It is no understatement to say that through the adoption and implementation of Common Core State Standards, we will ultimately lose state, local and parental control over our children’s education. Therefore, we urge Wyoming citizens to research this issue for themselves and begin to ask hard questions of decision makers.
