Unveiling Common Core - The Unanswered Questions

Oct 12, 2014 10:34AM, Published by Jennifer Neys, Categories: Education, Community



Previously Denise Pursche, Lisa Ackerman, Jeanne Wisniewski, and Sally Wood presented Common Core Debated last April 2014 in Pleasant Hill.  You can find the debate on YouTube: "Ten Little Fingers: Common Core Debated". This school year is California’s first “official” year of implementation of Common Core State Standards and they are presenting another Common Core panel "Unveiling Common Core - The Unanswered Questions" in Concord on November 7 from 7m-9pm at the Calvary Temple Church, 4725 Evora Rd. Please plan to attend an informative event with Dr. Sandra Stotsky (English Language Arts Professor) and Dr. James Milgram (Mathematics Professor), including Kevin Snider (Pacific Justice Institute).  Both of Dr. Stotsky and Dr. Milgram were included in the Common Core Validation Committees.  

Find out why both refused to sign off on the standards (there were 3 others who did the same). Kevin Snider, Chief Council for Pacific Justice Institute will discuss opting your kids out of the high stakes test.  Register online at Unveiling Common Core
