Common Core: Principal Tells Parent “You Can’t Talk About Common Core”

A parent in a public school in Raleigh, NC (part of the Wake County Public School System) said that the principal of her child’s school told her not to communicate with other parents about the Common Core.  She asked for her name to be withheld.

When I began seeing the ill affects of Common Core in my second grader’s classroom, I reached out to other parents and asked if it was just me.  Other parents echoed how they did not like the Common Core Math and what it was doing to their children.  We asked for a meeting with the teacher and the principal.  The principal denied us access to meet with her as a group, and outright told me to stop communicating with other parents about the Common Core because I was generating “unrest.”
