A Colorado English Teacher Slams Common Core…

April 15, 2014

…as well she should.

Pauline Hawkins came into the field of teaching just as NCLB got underway. Her recent blog post was also her resignation letter; it has gone viral. Whether you started your teaching career alongside Ms Hawkins, or even before NCLB, as I did, you know too well the harm that has come to our next generation….and continues to come, as long as this insanity keeps up. 

I would like to help spread Ms Hawkins’ eloquent and on-point letter…I hope you do, too.

    This letter spells out how teachers feel about this broken system. Pauline Hawkins echoes what I stated the other day–you just want to cry at this stupid, thoughtless system.
