Dr. Mary Kay Bacallao is Candidate for GA. State School Superintendent

If legislation could solve problems, No Child Left Behind would have been a success.

Let’s stop the Common Core attack and get us going in the right direction. Georgia can be # 1 in education, and I have a plan to make it happen.

If elected as Georgia’s State School Superintendent, I will:

Step 1: Scrap the CCRPI College and Career Readiness Performance Index because it is not accurate, reliable or valid. In the United States Constitution, our nation’s founders emphasized the need for accurate weights and measures. The CRCT was not designed to measure progress and the bonus points that use differing weights and varying measures invalidate the school rating scores.

Step 2: In order to satisfy the requirements of No Child Left Behind and help our teachers, we need to administer placement tests for reading, math, and writing. We can gauge progress with placement tests across grade levels.

Step 3: Review the analysis of Dr. Sandra Stotsky for ELA and my analysis of the math standards to select standards that are competitive. Provide recommended standards as targets and measure progress toward meeting the standards over several grade bands.

Step 4: Return control of schools to local school boards. They are much better acquainted with the needs and desires of the parents and community. Let them make as many decisions as possible.

Step 5: I will say no to the federal dollars. The programs that they support cost us more than the money we receive for implementing them.

For these reasons, I have decided to run for State School Superintendent. We can turn it around and come out ahead of other states and countries. By the wisdom and grace that God provides, we can increase parental and community involvement, keep our top notch teachers and school leaders, implement useful testing models, and select well researched competitive standards, because our students are capable of so much more than what Common Core requires.

    How can I help you get elected? There is no donate button on your webpage that I can find. I am the Mayor of a small town in the most republican county in south west GA. let me know what I can do. I live on a State Hwy in town and whoever has a sign in my yard generally wins our county. Thank you David Theiss, Ellaville GA 31806
