Ohio State Board of Education Accepting Public Testimony on Common Core - 6/11/13

There will be an important State Board of Education Meeting that will take place this Tuesday, June 11, 2013, that will accept public testimony on Common Core. Here are the details:

Date: June 11, 2013 
Time: Arrive beginning at 12:30 pm but no later than 1:00 pm 
Place: Ohio Dept. of Education
25 South Front Street
Basement Conference Room
Columbus, OH 43215

You can come to support those who testify, or you can choose to be one of the people testifying, which basically means writing down your concerns about Common Core on a one page document and then spending about three minutes sharing it with the members (You will have to have 19 copies of your write-up which they will distribute to each member.). You do not need to sound like an expert on the subject. You just need to express your concerns in broad terms, as citizens, parents, grandparents, whatever perspective you are coming from.

Having people at the hearings is just as important as testifying. The more people we have there, the more seriously the Board will take the testimony from our side.

I was told that there would be stickers handed out to supporters stating, “Stop Common Core”.

This would also be a good opportunity to make an appointment to speak to one of your representatives regarding this subject.
