Mikoda: I'm disappointed, but I'm not done

(WBNG Binghamton) A local woman is fighting against the Common Core and lost her campaign to join the Board of Regents on Tuesday.

Dr. Carol Mikoda, of Windsor, said she's disappointed with the results and she knew it was a long shot, but her fight is not over.

Mikoda said the powers in Albany want the incumbents to stay on the board.

She said Tuesday wasn't voting for the Board of Regents, but a battle between political parties.

"The issue of children and school was totally ignored today. It was all Democrats vs. Republicans," Mikoda said.

Mikoda said she will continue to make noise up through elections this November. She said her next goal is to help parents take their kids out of Common Core testing.

She adds that she may have interest in revisiting getting on the Board of Regents next March.
