Statewide grassroots leaders ask Governor to call education special session

Education school apple
Grassroots activists aren’t ready to give in on their attempt to repeal Common Core and change the states education system. Today they sent the following letter asking Gov. Robert Bentley to call an education special session to take up the bill that failed during regular session.
Governor Robert Bentley,
We the parents and concerned citizens of Alabama respectfully demand that you, the Governor of Alabama, call a Special Session of the Legislature, and request that SB101 and HB242 be revisited. You have repeatedly expressed to grassroots leaders and concerned parents working to repeal the Common Core Standards, that you were also opposed to them. Support of Common Core will be a dark mark on your legacy, and will also severely damage anyone with future political aspirations.
You are calling for tax increases to balance the general budget, but you refuse to address the fact that Common Core will bankrupt the State of Alabama. No amount of federal dollars will stay this process.
The “Repeal Common Core Battle Cry” will not stop. It is rampant throughout our country. The children of Alabama will not be easily surrendered to the untested mandates of the politick.
We are giving you an opportunity to stand with us, the parents of Alabama, and prove you are still a man of your word.
We await your answer. Make no mistake, we are not going away.
