Event Description

Nancy Doty writes:

"Please join us to learn and discuss the pros and cons of Common Core. Many people reject this new federal mandate because it requires all schools to teach to the PARCC (Partnership to Achieve Readiness for College and Career) testing, schools lack the technology needed for testing, and the data collection that will be required.  Proponents argue that higher standards for education will be implemented. 
Krista Kafer is a senior fellow with the Independence Institute, a Centennial Institute Fellow and is a columnist for the Denver Post.  Kafer has worked with the U.S. Dept. of Education, the Colorado Department of Education, WestEd, Colorado Christian University, plus others.  She has also served as the senior expert on education policy at the Washington D. C. based Heritage Foundation.  She has valuable insight on Common Core and we'll all learn much from her presentation."
