- 15. Jennifer Reynolds, Expert on Common Core, Speaks at Payson TEA Party Tonight!
Jennifer Reynolds, creator of Arizonans Against Common Core, speaks all across Arizona, educating communities and parents about the serious problems with Common Core. Ms. Reynolds also leads the Alliance for Sustainable Freedom. Tonight, April 4, 6:00-8:00 pm, she is the guest speaker at the Payson TEA Party, held at Tiny's Restaurant (600 E.

Here is a statement from former Arizona Senator Sylia Allen about Common Core:

Once Common Core Standards are completely implemented, the federal government will have total control of assessment tools and textbooks used in core subjects. Also a national data collection system called State Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) will be used to determine a child's educational opportunities.Click here to read more

The overriding message from Mr. Little was: Remain vigilant and do not allow Congress or the Arizona Legislature to pass anything at all that infringes on the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.Click here to read more
