Broken Arrow and Owasso city councils are considering a resolution to support Tulsa regional Chamber of Commerce’s 2014 One Voice agenda.
The agenda pushes for more taxes to fund things like the museum construction, building a south Tulsa bridge and funding Common Core.
Many parents have a problem with this and they made their voices heard this evening.
FOX23 News spoke with many parents, and they all said the same thing Common Core is not for their children or for the city of Owasso.
"We’re here at city council because I found out last week through a public notice that there is something called One Voice agenda and part of that is funding the implementation of Common Core,” Owasso mom Kristal Picolet said.
Picolet used to live in Colorado with her family and her children went through the Common Core program in their schools.
"My kids have been the experiment, and I refuse to allow my kids to go back down that road again," Picolet said.
Picolet told FOX23 that the reason she's against it is because she feels like it's a one-size-fits-all agenda.
"I don't want my kids to feel like they are failures, when they are expected to do things that they are not capable of physically or mentally," Picolet said. "Like right now, my second grader is already pre-testing for the third-grade test next spring, so that's a problem."
Owasso dad Russ Dugger also has a strong opinion about Common Core.
"Common Core has been proven time and time again by more and more states that it does nothing but put our children behind," Dugger said.
Tuesday night, both Dugger and Picolet joined a number of other parents to voice their displeasure with the One Voice agenda and its backing of Common Core.
“It’s just not the whole truth, I should say, and there's probably a place for it somewhere, but not in Owasso,” Picolet said.
