Central Valley Strategic Forum - March 2015


We invite you to come and listen to an informed panel of four local citizens express their concerns about Common Core and equip you as parents and individuals to “train up your children in the way they should go…” (Proverbs 22:6).  Common Core is the new set of federal educational standards and assessments that are currently being implemented in California and many other states.  Dissent to Common Core continues to build across the nation. Our panel members will be:

  • Horace (Rog) Lucido – A retired teacher who taught Physics and Mathematics for over 38 years in public, private and charter schools.
  • Dean Lowe, PhD. – A retired businessman with experience in both public and private sectors.
  • Jon Waara – Retired from agribusiness, Jon has been involved for many years in shedding light on public schools beginning with his undergrad days at FSU.
  • Allison Martinez – An education major in college, Allison homeschooled her five children, the youngest who is attending a public high school. She is currently involved with ‘Parents Against Common Core’.

There will be time for questions after the panel presentation and instructions with materials on how to opt-out your children from assessments and data collection. This will be an excellent and very interesting discussion.  We hope to see you there.

Thank you for your interest in CVSF and we look forward to seeing you at our monthly meeting.  For more information, please visit our website.
