Indiana homeschoolers, we need to stay vigilant on the Common Core front.  There are encouraging signs, but we must make sure we do not find that Common Core has only been repackaged.  We must maintain local control to have any choice in education.

Heather Crossin of Hoosiers Against Common Core has written a blog post on the latest regarding where we stand with Common Core in Indiana:
