Education Freedom Report 4-15-14: School News & Common Core Spotlight

Story 1: A 15-year-old teen in Pennsylvania was convicted of disorderly conduct for videotaping fellow students who were allegedly bullying him. The unidentified teen stated at his March 19th hearing that he made the recording because he felt like it wasn't me being heard. The boy was quoted as saying “I wanted some help.

Brett Interviewed On The Paul Duane Show
