HARTFORD, Conn. – A handful of parents — some of whom were wearing red T-shirts that read “Stop the Common Core in CT” — expressed their opposition to implementation of the Common Core State Standards at the state Board of Education meeting Wednesday.

The topic wasn’t on the agenda, but they spoke during the public portion of the board’s meeting.

“We will have wasted billions of dollars on children’s education on an experiment which is not supported by any real evidence that it will succeed,” retired teacher Kathy Cordone said.

Cordone does not agree with the Common Core standards, which were written by the National Governors Association, the Council for Chief State School Officers, and Achieve, Inc. Instead, she would like for the rules to be written by Connecticut teachers.

    Is there a serious issue here, or is this just another “evil government takeover conspiracy” from our tea party minded neighbors?

    And, those t-shirts speak volumes.
