Who Owns the Common Core Standards?

The two non-government entities that own the CCSS are the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The first paragraph at this link spells that out. (the CCSSI official website)

The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers (collectively, NGA Center/CCSSO), as the owners of the Common Core State Standards (College- and Career-Readiness Standards and K-12 Standards in English Language Arts and Math), grant this license to the Licensee identified below, subject to the terms set forth herein. The Common Core State Standards are protected by copyright and/or other applicable law, and any use of the Common Core State Standards other than as authorized under this License is prohibited.

As a parent, where will you go if you feel a change should be made to the ELA or math content to be taught to the students in your neighborhood and community schools?  To the school?  the local school board?  to the state education dept or the state school board?  to the federal government?  Sorry, it is out their hands.  They no longer have control over the content for ELA and math that is to be taught to the students in the states that have adopted the CCSS.
