Hollis Democrats March 20th Meeting

BillDuncanThe Common Core State Standards will be the topic of the Hollis Democrat’s March 20th meeting, and Bill Duncan will be the featured speaker.  The Common Core State Standards are the educational curriculum standards that are being implemented in school districts across New Hampshire, including Hollis and Brookline.  The Common Core standards have raised controversy in many districts, including ours.

Bill Duncan has followed the decision-making and controversies surrounding this important educational initiative from the beginning. He offers a knowledgeable perspective on its advocates and opponents, and can answer many questions surrounding the Common Core standards.  There is lots of great info on this topic on his website, anhpe.org.  Join us at 6 pm on Thursday March 20th at the Hollis Library for social time, with the meeting starting at  7 pm.
