The teachers from the Sikeston area who came forward to express their concerns about common core will be on KWKZ 106.1 radio, Cape Girardeau this morning at 11:00 with host Bob Anderson (Cousin Carl). Susan Kimball, Tonya Pobst and Heather Drury  will be giving an update on what is happening in their school district and sharing stories from around the state of parents who have been trying to opt their children out of testing this month, only to get the heavy handed push back from the school, from threats of legal action for trespassing to suspension for the kids for “insubordination.” All this for a test that does absolutely nothing to educate the child and isn’t even aligned to the school’s curriculum any more. Are the schools really in this for the kids, or are they just worried about protecting the system and their control of it?

Listen in and you decide.

Anne has been writing on MEW since 2012 and has been a citizen lobbyist on Common Core since 2013. Some day she would like to see a national Hippocratic oath for educators “I will remember that there is an art to teaching as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy and understanding are sometimes more important than policy or what the data say. My first priority is to do no harm to the children entrusted to my temporary care.”
