Common Core Forums in West Kansas

kansas-flagThere are two Common Core forums happening in West Kansas THIS Saturday, November 16th hosted by Americans for Prosperity – Kansas.

Come hear from a panel of education experts and regular moms as they discuss real solutions in K-12 education from the bottom-up and the dangers of top-down, cookie-cutter standards that are affecting children all over America right now.

What do you know about College & Career Ready Standards? The problem is that these national standards create expectations for our teachers without equipping them to fulfill those expectations.

You know that there are issues in our public school system that are making it tougher for the next generation of Kansans to have more opportunity than ours.

I have the privilege of being the keynote speaker at both.

The first event will be 10:00a-12:00p (CST) at the United Methodist Church in Quinter, KS.  You can register for this event here.

The second event will include a complementary dinner at it is being held from 6:00p-7:30p (CST) at the Ramada Inn in Hays, KS.  You can register for that event here.

Also I’m going to be on “The Conscience of Kansas” Radio program with Dr. Paul Ibbetson Wednesday, November 13 at 5p (CST) on KRMR The Patriot 105.7 FM  (Hays, KS) to discuss Common Core and the forums that will be taking place in West Kansas this Saturday. Those of you who don’t get that station you can “tune-in” here.
