Continuation of previous post on Dr. Gary Thompson’s testimony to the Wisconsin Legislature

When faced with expert testimony about the new Common Core testing being unethical and harmful to children, Senator John Lehman and Representative Sondy Pope try to undermine Dr. Thompson by claiming ties to an “extremist fringe group”. Dr. Thompson was questioned at the hearing and made it very clear that he was not paid for his time, only travel expenses and accomodations amounting to little more than $1000. He even shows them the check. This is just more evidence of what we, as parents and citizens, are up against. Politics and businesses want Common Core, not the people.

Here is Dr. Thompson’s response to the letter.

So, again, I say thank you to Dr. Thompson for adding your expert testimony to the fight. We are ever grateful.
