Near the end of July, WikiLeaks released 19,252 emails and 8,034 attachments from the Democratic National Committee (DNC). No topic seems to have escaped mention in these DNC emails and attachments, including Common Core.
In one email exposed by WikiLeaks, staffers listed education items and talking points.
The first item on the list was common Core. Staffers called it a “political third rail” and flatly said, “Get rid of it.”. In other words, Common Core was a toxic topic and should be removed from all DNC education talking points.
“Common Core is a political third rail..”#DNCleaks
