Meeting Description:

The summit seeks to explore and accurately represent the realities of the Common Core, from its intended goals to its development and implementation across the United States. With a multiplicity of competing voices in the public discourse surrounding several states’ decisions to repeal or not adopt the Common Core, it can be difficult for community stakeholders at all levels to evaluate the realities of the standards. From the creation of the goals and policy development to the eventual implementation of the Common Core, what has emerged is a set of standards that has far more questions than answers. The goal of this summit is to work toward demystifying the Common Core State Standards and to come to a common understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of this initiative and how to move forward.
