Deborah had never received any reprimand before. Since her criticism of Common Core, she has received three additional written reprimands, and school administrators are now constantly visiting her class and she has been shifted to a job category that will be eliminated at the end of the school year, which means Deborah’s employment will be terminated. Deborah is also ordered to refrain from expressing any opinion about public education on social media.
The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm filed a lawsuit on her behalf against the school district and the school principal. We don’t yet know how this will all turn out, but it certainly demonstrates that the imposition of Common Core on public school children is highly controversial, and it’s no wonder that moms and many teachers are up in arms all over the country in an effort to remove it from the classroom.
