This email was sent to me today and I asked if I could post it anonymously.

Dear Victoria:

“I am a teacher who has researched the horrific Common Core Curriculum and its founders. Our superintendent recently sent an email which, in essence, was a veiled threat against our jobs if we make any statements to the fact that we are against Common Core.

Not only that, he spread untrue statements (propaganda). I don’t know if he is ignorant (not having done his research) or just power and prestige hungry–and he claims to be a praying Christian. Offensive! I am going to retire at the end of next year because of my beliefs that conflict with Common Core. Please, please, please tell me how I can help! I am so upset because I feel powerless. I care so much about the future of our children. I don’t want to just take a Prozac and “mind my own business.” I am ready to fight but don’t know how to begin to make enough of a difference.”
