Been Asked to Attend Common Core Training?

My response to an email requesting me to register for a money-making “institute” offering training on the common core. Feel free to use.

Dear Marcia,

I will not be registering. I am a fan of neither “rigor,” which etymologically connotes severity and harshness, conceptions of learning that I have spent my life trying to avoid, or the common core, which, because of its to connections to high stakes testing, leads me to fear for the future of education.
