The town hall will be held at the Indian Creek Community Church in Olathe on Thursday, February 27th, at 7 p.m. The doors will open at 6:30pm.

Speakers for the event include Paul Schwartz, a concerned parent and IT professional, and Mike Jones, a concerned father of seven kids. There will be a time for questions and answers at the end.

In addition to walking away with a better understanding of Common Core, you will learn a variety of ways that you can personally get involved and make a difference. Remember, Common Core is not a “left” or “right” issue; it is non-partisan and the effects will be felt across our nation now and into the future.

– The standards are of poor quality and put our children two years behind those of high performing nations.

– They substitute classic literature for drab informational text at a time when our children need to be reading more classic literature to prepare for college.

– The standards are age inappropriate in grade k-3 according to child psychologist across the nation.

– Data privacy issues with the Data being collected.
