New York Gets Cold Feet on Common Core. For this, I humbly take most of the credit.
Without a doubt, it was my peerless and hilarious heckling at the last Common Core meeting with the Commissioner of Education, the one that forced them to cancel remaining meetings, that obviously lead to this reconsideration of the most troublesome aspects of this program. I even got a laugh from a guy I heckled.
I will keep an open eye on developments just in case my unique skills are again required.
