Joint Ed Meeting on Common Core, July 22-23 - Thursday, July 25, 2013

The Joint Education Committee met on Monday, July 22 and Tuesday, July 23 to hear reports on the Common Core State Standards in Arkansas.  These were informational meetings held to inform the legislators about the Common Core, provide historical and background information about the CCSS in Arkansas, and allow them to hear from various stakeholders about the pros and cons of the standards.  As expected, many legislators have heard from their constituents about the Common Core.  There was no action taken during these hearings; the purpose was simply to provide information to the legislators about Common Core.
