Letter from Peru superintendent goes viral

Posted by wlpo on August 28, 2014

First the Washington Post and now the Chicago Tribune has picked up a letter written by Peru Elementary Superintendent Mark Cross.

Cross wrote the letter directed at his district’s parents explaining how Common Core is threatening to destroy public education. In the first day of being up on the district’s Facebook page it reached over 9,000 people. The letter had over 50,000 views in under a week.

Cross thinks the message against Common Core struck a chord with people and that’s why its went viral. He says he didn’t do the letter to make a political statement.

You can see the letter on the Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO Facebook page.
