Common Core Seminar

The Common Core Seminar is free on the 18th of January, however, should we fail the lesson could be very, very expensive. A great effort was produced to release the facts regarding common core. We have arranged a great group of great well prepared speakers well versed in CCSS common core. The visitors invited include everyone, taxpayers, parents, administrators and politicians and town boards that will assist in making decisions about common core. We are the funders of this program and they are our children stop in and listen to the facts. We must do what is best to educate the youth in our country or pay a high price for failing.

This meeting is being presented as a seminar, an informational forum, a discussion, an exchange of ideas. However, there are only two featured speakers and they are both strong critics of Common Core. Something seems amiss.

Bob - Believe me we tried to get other speakers. Ruth Chou made an exhausting effort. I would be more than happy to get you a list of all the people we invited to speak on behalf of common core. No one would come. We began contacting people in early November. This will be a forum. Presenters will speak (we have 2 key speakers and a few others) and then people can ask questions. I expect the exchange to be lively. Personally I am looking forward to hearing the discussions.

I believe the 2 speakers are both critics of common core. Hardly an informative seminar. I agree with Bob. This meeting clearly has an agenda. I am not a fan of Common Core, but I always want to be educated not preached to.

JS - This is not designed to preach to anyone. It is a forum. We held forum for the Senate & town of Tewksbury candidates a while back. I believe it was well received. If you have common core opinions or questions please attend and ask away. I expect to learn something.
