By Ken Stanford
ATLANTA - The state Board of Education has scheduled hearings in Gainesville and Buford on the controversial Common Core Standards and other public education issues.
The Buford hearing will be held Tuesday at the Buford Fine Arts Center. The one in Gainesville is planned for September 9 at Gainesville High School. Each will begin at 7:00.
Each member of the state Board of Education has scheduled a public hearing in their congressional district, with the goal of hearing comments from interested citizens and educators regarding the performance and problems of public education.
This includes hearing comments about the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts as part of the State Board’s formal evaluation of these standards.
Persons wishing to speak should sign in upon arrival. For more information, contact Mrs. Debbie Caputo at 404-657-7410.
