A third-grade class of children in upstate New York were upset by the Common Core exams.

Their teacher and principal encouraged them to write to the Governor.

Many complained that they didn’t have enough time to finish.

One wrote, “”I know the governor wants us to be ‘college ready,’ but we are only in third grade for heaven sakes.”

Out of the mouths of babes, more wisdom than one hears from the New York State Education Department.

You can find their bureaucratic responses to the children at the end of the article.

We do want our third graders to be college and career ready, don’t we?
