Open Letter to the elected representatives known as the Worcester County School Board:

Who among you is planning to attend the MD Legislature hearing on repealing Common Core in the MD school system? I am sure you are aware it is being held next Wednesday, February 5, in Annapolis.

Your thoroughly cohesive body has rejected all our local efforts to educate you and the Department you supposedly oversee on the dangers of relinquishing your responsibilities to the Federal Government. I am sure you cannot wait to extol the RIGOR of Common Core by joining your fellow proponents in Annapolis to prove (to those of us neanderthals who have objected to this one-size-fits-all system of indoctrination, data collection and ever increasing expense) how you STAKEHOLDERS know better.

Let’s carpool. Your gas and mileage expenses would probably be paid for by the taxpayers and we did pay for that.

The reason school boards want Common Core is 1)They are liberal and 2)the won't get Federal funding if they don't switch to Common Core.

You people are idiots for not speaking out against this indoctrination.

yes, focusing on critical thinking skills along with written and spoken communication instead of regurgitating facts from a book qualifies as "indoctrination"

Common Core has been piloted nowhere.
