Furious New York Teacher Directs Her Outrage Toward Common Core
In a far left state you can still find people standing up for what’s right.: This teacher: protested: common core through art.
A New York teacher who is fed up with the Common Core curriculum says she is venting her outrage through art – specifically painting images that aim to show “how ridiculous and nonsensical” she says the standards are. Medina High School art teacher Jennifer Ohar Scott explained her unique form of protest to WGRZ-TV.
“As I’m painting, I’m furious,” she said. “I’m almost attacking the canvass with the brush because I’m so angry about what’s going on to these students.”
“I do what I do best,” she added. “I paint.”
One depicts a class full of children with a man staring in through a window.
“I wanted almost to paint it like a doll house and the kids were in the school room and the school room is very small and he’s peering through the window of the doll house, kind of enjoying himself seeing the anxiety and frustration the children are going through.”
Another shows a man, not facing the viewer, “To portray he’s not listening to people. He keep saying that Common Core and everyone likes it, but I don’t think that’s the general consensus. I think I was the most aggravated when I painted it,” she told WGRZ.
Ohar Scott told WGRZ that she thinks students are over tested as it is.
It’s great to hear that people from far: left places like New York still want to fight for this country’s freedom in education.
