Wisconsin Eye video taped the public hearing on Common Core in Wausau 10/30/2013
Because there were seven hours of video, it was divided into two segments
PUBLIC TEACHERS AND ADMINSTRATORS LOBBY IN FAVOR OF COMMON CORE:
The public hearing in Wausau was apparently a lobby day for teachers, principals, administrators and professors who all came out in favor of Common Core as the best thing since sliced Wisconsin cheese. (What did teachers teach prior to Common Core?)
TWO MOMS AND ONE TEEN TESTIFY AGAINST COMMON CORE:
Parents and students were under-represented at the Wausau hearing.

One mom – her daughter cries – kindergarten is too much work. Minutes 1-13
Another mom gives riding lessons – students are tired. Their parents explained their children are burned out. (Hour 1:44)
A 16-year old teen testified she’s been homeschooled all her life and is concerned about common core. Will her parents be required to switch to the common core curriculum?
