About

If you are concerned about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) that are being implemented in your schools in Washington State, then you’ve come to the right place.

You can read up on the CCSS by browsing the categories to the left and then check out our ‘Get Involved’ tab to find out what you can do. If you’d like to do more, please email us at stopcommoncorewa@gmail.com for more information.

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.

Update—Spring 2017

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.

If you have followed SCCWS by email, you are encouraged to sign up to follow The Underground Parent by clicking on the Follow The Underground Parent button in the narrow right column of the home page.

  1. Well done. Your site is balanced, well written, and a fair treatment of the Common Core Standards (CCS). Not only will the CCS hurt children and teachers, but a hidden goal is the excessive amount of money to be realized by big education businesses. These hidden motives for profit drive the political agenda to control our schools.

  2. Don’t agree!! My grandson is THRIVING under it. My daughter-in-law is thrilled with it!! That’s enough for me. Go see the videos on The Teaching Channel. Most people don’t even know what it does….

    Keep your minds open, people… search for knowledge… don’t take someone else’s word for it…

  3. Common Core math is boring, doing the same problem, for example, 6 different ways is making math boring to our young people. They don’t like math much anymore after this was implemented. I am a parent and we are against it! We like math, but not Common Core, which- I think should be renamed Common Bore! Useless drawing and doing the problem a million different ways is NOT helping anyone, especially anyone who used to like math! The kids motivation and enthusiasm is dying under this forced Common Core program. Get rid of it and bring back tried and true math!
