The Underground Parent

The Underground Parent (TUP) is a new website that just went public on Tuesday. 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. Items have been cross posted to both sites.  For a while, a note will be sent out on SCCWS when an article is posted to TUP but not SCCWS.  Eventually, posts will only be made to TUP while the SCCWS 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.
