On Jan. 15, HB215 was introduced to nullify the Common Core curriculum in the state of Kentucky. (learn more about it here) It was promptly referred to the Education Committee where it will need to be passed by a majority before a vote is taken in the whole House.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! It doesn’t matter where in Kentucky you live, ACT NOW!

1. Call the House Education Committee Chair, Derrick Graham. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bill forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.

2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on HB215. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days.

3. Call Back – any NO or UNDECIDED – in 3-4 days. Ask if they’ve had a chance to review the legislation and what their opposition might be. Comment below or contact us at http://ask.tenthamendmentcenter.com with any information you get.

4. SHARE this information widely. By facebook, twitter, email, and more.

5. Write a letter to the editor. Look up your local newspaper and submit a letter to the editor voicing your support for HB215. It is essential to keep the educational system from being completely usurped by unaccountable, corrupt federal bureaucrats. Passing HB215 will make that happen.

6. Report Back. Tell us how your actions went. Click the button below
