“The attempt to implement Common Core was a disaster, but helping our kids reach higher standards is the right thing to do. That’s why we stepped in to reform the process, so students and teachers can succeed.”
Phil Steck knows our kids need to reach higher educational standards to succeed in the new high-tech economy.
But the implementation of Common Core caused unnecessary stress and anxiety for children and teachers.
Rather than force taxpayers to return billions in funding to the federal government by rejecting higher standards, Phil helped reform Common Core by:
- Delaying high-stakes testing and he’s working to eliminate it once and for all.
- Ensuring teachers and students have the necessary support and resources.
Phil helped secure an additional $1 million for local schools, helping to reduce the burden on taxpayers and ensure a quality education for our kids.
