A frustrated, teed-off mom drew the attention of Fox News when she took her Common Core complaints to Twitter — enough that she scored a segment on Saturday’s “Fox & Friends.”

When this and Bocskay’s numerous other tweets describing her “crazy 6-year-old’s” Common Core math assignments attracted the attention of Twitchy, Fox & Friends co-hosts Tucker Carlson and Clayton Morris interviewed her pn their show. Here’s their exchange via Fox News.
The interview earned her lots of kudos in Twitter, including one unintended result of Common Core:

And the interview brought support:

And one enthusiastic prediction brought a reply from Bocskay
@goldilockspryor people dont get it. Never underestimate a fed up mom!
