“The Hillsdale set, referred to as the “Barney Charter School Initiative’s Scope and Sequence,” would replace all Arizona academic standards. No other state appears to adhere to the Hillsdale standards. The Barney Charter School Initiative is a project out of Hillsdale that advances the founding of charter schools. “

For our students to be successful they need nationally recognized public school standards based on reason and fact. We need leaders who are committed to championing our children’s future not a political agenda.
