Could Be The Biggest Common Core Stories Yet?

A school in Sacramento, California, has suspended a mom over her stance against Common Core.

You read that correctly, the Mark Twain School in Sacramento has told the mother of a 12-year-old student that she has been suspended for two weeks. Police in Sacramento served the 14-day suspension to Katherine Duran in her home following a disagreement with the school over the soon-to-be enacted Common Core standards.

Duran’s son, Christopher, was not pleased when he learned of his mom’s suspension, telling the local KXTV, “I was outraged.”

Mark Twain would want his name ripped off that school.

Some boards of ed. ignore parent questions and then give partial or misleading answers if forced to respond. I know one school system that would suspend parents in a second if it had the power. Power is very big with those folks.
