Its been a while since I’ve posted here, but please don’t mistake the lack of posting with inaction. Our petition to Bishop Barres has well over 500 electronic signatures! Great news indeed! But we believe there are thousands of parents, parishioners, grandparents and educators in our diocese and beyond, who are simply unaware that the Common Core (aka PA Core) has been introduced into our Diocesan schools. Therefore the petition remains open and we encourage more parents, parishioners, grandparents and educators to sign. The link to our petition is here!
We encourage you to sign and then use the buttons to share on Facebook and Twitter!
In the meantime, we are continuing the dialogue with the Office of Education and remain hopeful for a positive conclusion to our discussions.
