UPDATED! Common Core Tomorrow Night! A Forum For All Marylanders

UPDATE NOVEMBER 5! Blair Ames here reports “Carroll commissioners common core forum draws a crowd.” Ames also reports “‘The bottom line is we offered a balanced forum,’ [Commissioner Richard] Rothschild said after Monday’s event.” Readers should consider Commissioner Doug Howard’s position against the forum and the tone of his follow-on comments.  Did he lose his way and stumble into the wrong Party? Not surprisingly, the Maryland Educational Establishment avoided a forum they could not dominate.

Under the auspices of the Carroll County Commissioners here, there will be a Common Core State Standards Forum, tomorrow, Monday, November 4, beginning at 6:30pm at Carroll Community College located at 1601 Washington Road, Westminster, MD 21157.

Declared Commissioner Richard Rothschild

“The majority of the public still has little insight into what Common Core is, and the long-term implications. I am concerned that most forums around the state have given the podium to state educational officials that support the core, but groups with different perspectives have been denied an opportunity to present.”

 Added Commissioner Robin Frazier

“If Common Core is good, we should embrace it, but if it is bad, we should do everything in our power to stop it. Either way, we need more information.”

Rothschild said “time will be reserved for questions or comments from the public. All Marylanders are welcome.”

What Is The Maryland Education Establishment Hiding?

State and county public education officials were invited but declined to attend, the Blue Ridge Forum learned.

We urge prospective attendees (and readers) to consider Stanley Kurtz’ National Review on Line post concerning the consequences to our freedom of imposing the Common Core curriculum here.
