NY Teachers Union Chief: Common Core is Child Abuse (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


To the applause of those in the room, a New York teachers union president slammed the state’s Common Core policy as “child abuse.”

Beth Dimino, President of the Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association, appeared to speak at a Common Core forum held on November12 at the Ward Melville High School in East Setauket, New York. Dimino is also a science teacher in the Comsewogue School District.

The 16-year-teacher blasted Common Core and said that even “psychologists” are now maintaining that the new, fashionable educational policy is harming children.

Transcripts

I’m a teacher in the state of New York, and as such I am a mandated reporter. And I’m here to report that we are abusing children in the state of New York. (Applause).

There is now a common core syndrome. Do you understand what that means? We have children that are being diagnosed by psychologists with a syndrome directly related to work they do in the classroom. If that’s not child abuse, I don’t know what is.

I’m very happy Miss Tisch that you’re here, because I have fifty letters with me and I’ve mailed you three hundred others asking for Mr. King’s resignation and firing.

I have no problem being judged by anyone. I was judged as ‘highly effective’ last year as Dr. Joe Relick can attest to. Obviously Mr. King, you’re ineffective – 70% of the children in this state failed your test.

I appreciate, Mr. Flanagan, that you’re listening. But I’m not sure you’re hearing. So what I’m going to tell you is, because you’ve awoken the mommies you’re in trouble. What’s going to happen is that hundreds of thousands of mommies are going to fill out this form and they are going to have their children refuse to take the test, because the mommies in New York don’t abuse their children. And they’re not going to let bullies do that either.

Rusty Weiss from MentalRecession spoke to the teacher after her appearance at the meeting and she reiterated her charge that psychologists are discovering that Common Core is hurting kids.

“They are seeing younger and younger children in their offices for high stress related problems because of the child’s exposure to the testing,” she said.

Here is another…

The lies that is Common Core as elucidated by a high school kid in Tennessee…

“We teach to free minds, we teach to inspire,” not to train for jobs.
