Common Core English books will cost Fairfield-Suisun schools $229,889

By From page A6 | June 11, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Textbooks costing a total of $253,473 – with most of that amount paying for $229,889 worth of Common Core State Standards-edition English language arts books – are the subject of a public hearing Thursday before Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees.

The remaining $25,584 will go to books for American history, biology and other subjects.

Funding comes from the state lottery and money for instructional materials. The Common Core language arts books are for ninth, 10 and 11th grades.

New instructional materials are submitted to the trustees for adoption after initial review by staff and the public, a report to the school board states. A public viewing of materials recommended for adoption takes place in the Instructional Media Center of Fairfield-Suisun School District from May 22 through Thursday, the report adds.

Trustees meet at 6 p.m. in the central office board room at 2490 Hilborn Road in Fairfield.

    More wasteful spending, now from the lottery. Our government crams another program down our throats and we like sheep say "Can we have some more"!

    We do not need Common Core Indoctrination. We need Good Teachers who are interested in Teaching Children, not what they can get from taxpayers via their union. We need Good Parents who demand their children pay attention, respect their teachers and do their best.
