The Common Core State Standards have become a very contentious issue both in our state and across the nation. It even appears that this issue will be at the forefront of the 2016 Presidential Election.
We want our local parents and citizens educated on what Common Core is, what’s its strengths and weaknesses are and what we can do to insure that parental rights, local school board rights and teacher rights are not encroached upon by State or Federal mandates.
Speakers Sandy Torosian and Laura Reagan will explain what the Standards are, how they were developed, their strengths and weaknesses and what we can do to maintain local control over our education system. They will also inform us about the new Advanced Placement U.S. History course that was rolled out this August to over 500,000 of our best and brightest high school students.
Please join us for this informative evening. We encourage school board members, school officials, teachers and parents to attend. We will have a Q&A session at the end of the meeting.
