“I believe that it’s just as important if not MORE important to support the things that you want to see happen in the world than it is to have protests against things you don’t want to see in the world. That’s why we will not be having a traditional “protest” in front of the Palace Theater this Wednesday, but rather, a show of support for this amazing comedian with the courage to speak out on things that matter to him.
We believe in allowing parents more discretion in decision making when it comes to their own children, and ending the corporate takeover of education.
We want more local control of education, less standardized testing, and ending the treatment of students as data collection subjects.”
Some of the direct shots that Louis C.K. has taken against Common Core include:
My kids used to love math. Now it makes them cry. Thanks standardized testing and common core!

Teachers are underpaid. They teach for the love of it. Let them find the good in cc without the testing guns to their and our kids heads.— Louis C.K. (@louisck) May 1, 2014
I trust a teacher over Pearson or bill hates any day of the week. Don’t all be so defensive and don’t be such bullies. — Louis C.K. (@louisck) May 1, 2014
Anyone wanting to join Assembly Candidate Calhoun and company in thanking Louis C.K. can show up at the Palace at 7 p.m. Wednesday, an hour before the show begins.
