Common Core Forum Scheduled For Wednesday November 13


Common Core is the name given to a revised curriculum as mandated by the State and Federal governments through New Hampshire’s Department of Education.  Many states and local communities have accepted the new curriculum; however, many questions and concerns are now being raised about the curriculum.   Some of the areas in question are its components, its value, its impact on local control of education, and the cost to taxpayers.


In an effort to address these and other questions and concerns, a “Common Core Forum” is being held on Wednesday November 13 at 7:00 pm at the Beane Conference Center, 35 Blueberry Lane in Laconia.  The Forum is open to the general public, however, you are asked to RSVP by November 8 for this event as seating is limited.  


The intent of the Forum is to create greater awareness of what Common Core is, and what its proponents and opponents are saying about it.  The Forum will feature five panelists with a wide range of knowledge about Common Core.  The panelists include two experts who also served on the Common Core panel discussion held recently at the Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College which was attended by over 200 people.  They are Sandra Stotsky, Ed.D and Jamie Gass, Pioneer Institute.  Joining them on the panel are Ann Marie Banfield, a Common Core expert from Cornerstone Policy Research; Glenn Cordelli, a New Hampshire State Representative serving on the House Education Committee; and Doris Hohensee, representing New Hampshire Families for Education.


The Forum is being hosted by the Belknap County Republican Committee, but it is intended to provide information about Common Core to the general public since Common Core affects all families regardless of political affiliation.
