Letter to the Editor:
Last week I offered comments about Common Core education standards to the Northland Pines School Board, Sen. Tom Tiffany and Rep. Rob Swearingen, and Wednesday I attended the public hearing in Wausau, a lobby day for teachers, principals, administrators and professors who all came out in favor of Common Core.
However, parents, students and taxpayers were under-represented at the hearing. One mom testified that her kindergarten daughter cries that school is too much work. Parents complained that school is too much work for the little ones. A 16-year-old teen testified she’s been home-schooled all her life
