Last week the governor gave several interviews in which he stated that he thought Wisconsin could “do better” than Common Core Standards and produce “higher standards”. Still, it’s worrisome that after all the testimony about how Common Core Standards and the associated Smarter Balanced assessments are hurting our children that the Governor would not clearly state that Common Core must go. Be friendly, but let the governor know that you expect him to take definitive stand on Common Core.
Our call for Wednesday, December 4th will be to:
Governor Scott Walker
Phone: (608) 266-1212
Please call and email him with a message similar to the following:
“Governor Walker, I’ve heard you say some very encouraging things in interviews and in the press that Wisconsin can do better than Common Core and can create its own Wisconsin Standards, but you’ve stopped short of taking a clear stand against Common Core. Can you tell me if you are for or against Common Core in Wisconsin? Will you take a lead in pushing the legislature to dump Common Core?”
If you get a definitive answer either way, please let me know as that will affect our messaging going forward. Please make this call today! It’s of paramount importance.

Plenty of people are talking about how conservatives must reach out to the Hispanic community.
We’re taking action through Heritage Libertad–our Spanish-language website, which is connecting Hispanic Americans with conservative ideas that will benefit their families, their communities and their businesses.
Just as important, through Heritage Liberetad, we’re building a broader base of support for the ideas that are top priority to Heritage supporters.
Since launching in 2010, Heritage Libertad continues to flourish.
Online: Libertad.org offers easy-to-access Spanish-language research and simple connection to Libertad’s Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube pages. Libertad.org is also home to Cafe’ con Libertad, our Spanish-Language blog, which offers up-to-the-minute details on hot news topics.
In the Media: Libertad is building a permanent presence on Hispanic radio and TV. In 2012, Heritage Libertad was mentioned in more than 300 redio and television interviews that reached local, national, and international audiences.
