·       #5 Of Nine Apache County Republican Resolutions Passed This Spring:

 

STATE OF ARIZONA.

APACHE COUNTY REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE RESOLUTION

OPPOSING COMMON CORE

WHEREAS, high student performance and closing the achievement gap is

fundamentally linked to an overall reform of our public education system through

a strong system of accountability and transparency built on state standards; and

WHEREAS, the responsibility for the education of each child of this nation

primarily lies with parents, supported by locally elected school boards and state

governments; and

WHEREAS, in 2009 and 2010, the State was offered the chance to compete for

education funding through the "Race to the Top" program created by the U. S.

Department of Education (UED"); and

WHEREAS, the only way to achieve a score in the competition sufficient to

qualify for funding was to agree to "participation in a consortium of States that ...

is working toward jointly developing and adopting a common set of K-12

standards ... "; and

WHEREAS, the only such "common set of K-12 standards" existent at that time,

or since, is known as the Common Core State Standards Initiative ("CCSSI") and

was developed without a grant of authority from any state; and

WHEREAS, the CCSSI standards were released in June 2010, and to meet the

ED "Race to the Top" requirements the State had only 60 days to evaluate them

and agree to adopt them; and

WHEREAS, local education officials, school leaders, teachers, and parents were

not included in the discussion. evaluation and preparation of the CCSSI

standards that would affect students in this state; and

WHEREAS, citizens had no opportunity to review and comment on the final

version of CCSSI standards, and states were not offered an option to modify

those standards before their adoption; and

WHEREAS, no empirical evidence indicates that centralized education standards

result in higher student achievement: and

WHEREAS, adoption of the CCSSI standards would force several states to lower

the rigor and quality of their standards; and

WHEREAS, the National Assessment of Educational Progress national test

already exists and allows comparisons of academic achievement to be made

across the states, without the necessity of imposing national standards, curricula,

or assessments; and

WHEREAS, imposing a set of national standards is likely to lead to the imposition

of a national curriculum and national assessment upon the various states, in

violation of the General Education Provisions Act, the Elementary and Secondary

Education Act; and the Department of Education Organization Act and

WHEREAS, claims from the Common Core Initiative that the CCSSI standards

will not dictate what teachers teach in the classroom are refuted by language in

the standards as written; and

WHEREAS, common standards will lessen the ability for local stakeholders to

innovate and continue to make improvements over time; and

WHEREAS, when no less than 22 states face budget shortfalls and Race to the

Top funding for states is limited, $350 million for consortia to develop new

assessments aligned with the CCSSI standards will not cover the entire cost of

overhauling state accountability systems, which includes implementation of

standards and testing and associated professional development and curriculum

restructuring; and

WHEREAS, special interest groups can manipulate the vulnerability of the

centralized decision making that governs common standards and lower the

standards' rigor and quality over time to suit 'their priorities;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the APACHE COUNTY

REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE calls upon the State of ARIZONA to reject any

policies and procedures that would be incumbent on the state based on the

Common Core State Standards Initiative.
