WV Congressman McKinley – Defund Common Core

Filed in Events, News by on April 8, 2014



WV Against Common Core is proud to announce that our Congressman David McKinley has joined with fellow congressman to defund Common Core.  Congressman McKinley has added his signature to Congressman Steve King’s letter to block federal funding of Common Core.  The letter was sent to the leaders of the House Labor, Health & Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee.  Click here to read the full letter and signatories.

Congressman McKinley’s office released the following statement:

“Last week, Rep. McKinley signed onto a letter requesting that funds appropriated to the U.S. Department of Education could not be used to interfere with state decisions on academic content standards.  The states should take the lead in strengthening our schools and the federal government should assist if needed, not the Washington first approach that is currently taking place.  Decisions regarding a child’s education are the role of parents, not the federal government. That is why education policy should be made closer to home, by state and local officials, along with school administrators, teachers, and parents. It is the duty of a state to determine the best education policies for their children and the responsibility of the federal government to ensure the fair and equal administration of those policies.”

Thank You, Congressman McKinley!
