Stop Common Core in Washington State was started by a couple of moms in Washington State who are concerned about the Common Core State Standards. Stop Common Core in Washington State has grown into a statewide, non-partisan network of concerned parents, citizens, voters, taxpayers, and organizations in the state of Washington. We might view education issues from different perspectives; however, we are in agreement that education and decisions regarding education in the State of Washington need to be restored to the local level.

Truth in American Education (TAE) is a national, non-partisan group of concerned parents and citizens. We view educational issues from different perspectives; however, we are in agreement, that the promotion and implementation of elements of the Race to the Top (RTTT) policies are misguided and harmful. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS), CCSS assessments, and state longitudinal data systems development along with associated privacy issues are being implemented nationwide with insufficient research-based evidence and insufficient public examination and discourse.
TAE Advocates formed to share information, network with other individuals and groups with similar concerns, identify initiatives that are unnecessarily disruptive, experimental, and without fact-based support, and develop positions related to these issues in the educational interest of our school children The primary focus of TAE efforts is to ensure students succeed by receiving the full benefit of a quality educational experience based on their individual and developmental needs.
Four individuals formed TAE in early 2011 as an information network. American Principles Project pays for TAE web hosting and domain renewal. Annually the web hosting costs are approximately $100 and the domain renewal is $14.95. Other than this, TAE accepts no funds and has no funding source.
TAE is a true grassroots network. It is not a foundation, a non-profit, or an organization. TAE has no officers, no employees, no staff, no offices, and no expenses (other than web hosting and domain costs). TAE has no funds, no budget, no bank account, and no system in place to handle funds. TAE freely provides and shares available information within our extended network and to the public.
