Battle Ground States
Here are the states where American Principles Project is fighting the Common Core State Standards. The states in the red we have determined to be battleground states due to legislation that has been filed, hearings that have been held and a significant grassroots opposition. Indiana is currently purple because a Common Core pause has been enacted. Minnesota is also purple because they have rejected the Math standards. Blue states: Alaska, Nebraska, Texas and Virginia have initially rejected the Common Core. It should be noted that there are issues with Alaska and Virginia aligning their standards behind the scenes in order to receive a No Child Left Behind waiver. They may be determined to be battleground states in the future. The rest of the states are dark blue, they have adopted the Common Core, and there isn’t pending legislation -yet.
