The New York Post is reporting that the Reverend Al Sharpton is condemning the move by many to opt-out of the Common Core testing, the tests that start next week.
“I am for protecting teachers. I’m for protecting resources. But I’m not for something that’s not been thought out and talked out,” the civil-rights preacher said. “For them to arbitrarily say ‘opt out’ and not evaluate or deal with any of the consequences . . . that is something I could not support. We could lose federal funding,” the Post quoted Sharpton as saying.
