Tea party member to Scott Walker: Quit riding the fence on Common Core

  // Sunday, 27 July 2014 02:35 //

A local tea party organizer said “the fence riding” by Gov. Scott Walker over the Common Core education standards has to stop.

“We're not interested in playing games with our children's education,” said Sun Prairie’s Jeff Horn, who belongs to a group called Prairie Patriots. “A significant portion of the governor's base is only interested in an actual repeal of Common Core and Wisconsin pulling out of the oppressive Smarter Balanced Assessments.

The fence riding has got to stop.”

On July 17, Walker announced in a single-sentence press release that he was calling for lawmakers to convene in special session and repeal the standards in early January.

Many, including Horn, said politics was at play, given that a January session is after the November election and the start of the next school year.
