Kindergarten teacher Susan Kimball recently testified to the Missouri Senate Education Committee that she was intimidated and bullied by co-workers and her bosses for publicly opposing Common Core.
Common Core is a new standardized educational plan that is being used in 45 states, notes MSNBC.
“When I turned in a personal day request to come support the rally for House Bill 1490, I was asked by my principal, ‘Do you really want that in your personnel file?’ And then I was bullied and ostracized by my administration, a few other teachers and the president of the school board and that continues today," claimed Kimball, reports The Missouri Torch, which shot the video (below).
Kimball also claimed that during some school meetings she and other teachers were told not to post anything negative online or talk in public about Common Core or it could affect their jobs.
"So, even though many teachers were hating the Common Core curriculum, they would not voice there opinion to anyone," said Kimball.
“It has been heart-wrenching to watch my students frustration when having to be taught these lessons, especially when I know better from all my years of teaching that this is not appropriate, but I am powerless to do anything,” added Kimball.
