Disclosure Policy

I know there are questions about how transparent one should be with affiliate links and the fact that we receive income from purchases made through those links. Just so we can clear all this up, here is what we do:

  • We will endeavor to link to products NOT aligned with Common Core.
  • Most of the links you will find to company product pages are affiliate links.
  • If you would like to know if it is, hover over the link and chances are there’s an ID number in there that tags any purchase you make.
  • We have affiliate links throughout the website.
  • IF we collect your email address, it will only be with your consent and it will NEVER be sold. Ever.

Affiliates and other advertising revenue are what makes the internet go round, and subscriptions pay for the quarterly magazine. If those of us providing a service did everything for free – we wouldn’t be around very long. We’ve got to keep the lights on and pay the hosting provider to keep providing that service to you.

Here is the full disclosure policy:
