Petrilli’s New PR Common Core Campaign. How’s That Working?

Missouri Education Watchdog

Michael Petrilli recently announced the Common Core advocates needed to change their marketing push for the privately owned/copyrighted standards for public schools and be more ‘emotional’. From Politico and Moms winning the Common Core war:

…backed with fresh funding from philanthropic supporters, including a $10.3 million grant awarded in May from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, supporters are gearing up for a major reboot of the Common Core campaign.

We’ve been fighting emotion with talking points, and it doesn’t work,” said Mike Petrilli, executive vice president of the Fordham Institute, a leading supporter of the standards. “There’s got to be a way to get more emotional with our arguments if we want to win this thing. That means we have a lot more work to do.”

Mercedes Schneider doesn’t take his ‘emotion’ seriously….


As usual, the elites have underestimated the intelligence of parents, grandparents and guardians.
