Informational meeting on Common Core Standards set for Oct. 19

An informational meeting on Common Core Standards has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, October 19, at the Mills-Anderson Justice Center Auditorium at Missouri Southern State University.

The meeting is being organized with the help of parents and community members who are concerned about the implementation of Common Core Standards, according to Jill Carter, Stark City, who organized a similar informational meeting and then an appearance before the East Newton R-6 Board of Education, which eventually resulted in East Newton becoming the first school district in Missouri to raise concerns about Common Core, through a resolution passed Thursday night.

More information about that resolution and meeting can be found at this link.
