Hello CWA friends!

CWA of North Dakota commends the Thomas More Law Center for joining in filing a lawsuit against North Dakota’s governor, state superintendent and other state officials. “The lawsuit claims that North Dakota’s participation in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and its implementation of Common Core is unconstitutional and violates several federal laws that prohibit federal control of our public schools and their curriculum.”

“The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, teamed-up with attorney D. John Sauer of the St Louis, Missouri firm, Clark & Sauer, to file the lawsuit. This lawsuit follows Sauer’s success in stopping Missouri’s membership in SBAC on similar grounds. Bismarck, North Dakota, Attorney, Arnold Fleck, has agreed to assist in the lawsuit as local counsel.”

Please join us as we pray for the success of this lawsuit in stopping the affront to states’ rights as guaranteed in the 10th Amendment! Pray for all the parties involved in filing this lawsuit. May the Lord give them wisdom and guidance as they proceed.
