Stop Common Core in Washington State was started by a couple of moms in Washington State who are concerned about the Common Core State Standards. Stop Common Core in Washington State has grown into a statewide, non-partisan network of concerned parents, citizens, voters, taxpayers, and organizations in the state of Washington. We might view education issues from different perspectives; however, we are in agreement that education and decisions regarding education in the State of Washington need to be restored to the local level.
The Underground Parent (TUP) is a new website went public in February. All content from the Stop Common Core in Washington State (SCCWS) has been ported over and merged with the content from an older site of the same name (TUP). The education reform issues being addressed are broader than the Common Core. That does not mean the Common Core and efforts to stop it are no longer important—they are as important as ever and will continue to be addressed. New posts and content are being made on the TUP site. The SCCWS site will be dormant but accessible.
