WATCH Teachers Union Head To Opponents of Common Core: “You Sick People Need to Deal With Us!”

The dreaded Common Core, the program that seeks to set curriculum standards for grades K-12, has its share of opponents. Michael Mulgrew, president of the United Federation of Teachers, the trade union of teachers in New York City, has a message for them: “You sick people need to deal with us.”

“If someone takes something from me, I’m going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine! You do not take what is mine! … I’m going to punch you in the face and put you in the dirt!”

 “You sick people need to deal with us and the children we teach!”

Really? This is how a presumably educated person talks to his opponents? Punch these “sick” people in the face and put them “in the dirt” because they disagree with the way English, math and science are being taught by a controversial program which is opposed by a number of the nation’s governors, along with top university professors?  A fine example Mulgrew just set for our nations children.

To be sure, Common Core math is confusing, to say the least. That being said, can we not have an intelligent debate on the education of our children without this kind of angry, emotional rhetoric?
