St. Tammany Federation of Teachers President Elsie Burkhalter, and St. Tammany Schools Superintendent, Trey Folse, of the St. Tammany Parish Public school system in Louisiana, have taken a public stand against Common Core. The resolution to stop Common Core involvement hit teachers’ mailboxes this week.
This was reported by the Greater New Orleans Times-Picayune as well as by teacher Mercedes Schneider, who added that “In response to St Tammany’s drafting the [anti-Common Core] resolution, the Louisiana Board … pushed Common Core in a tour of St. Tammany Schools in late October. The tour did not go well, with State Superintendent John White being met with lawn signs protesting his intent to push Common Core State Standards.”
Love those yard signs.
Thank you, Louisiana.
