Oracle – Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal will be speaking about Common Core Standards on Sat., July 13 from 9 a.m. to noon, in the La Mesa room of the La Hacienda building at Saddlebrooke Ranch West, located one mile north of Oracle Junction on Highway 77.

According to the Coalition for a College and Career Ready America, Common Core Standards “ .. is a first step toward ensuring that all of our nation’s young people receive the best possible education no matter where they live – and will have the skills and knowledge critical to meet the challenges of the 21st century workplace.”

Many persons, including some governors, see the program as a means for the federal government to initiate a takeover of state and local education systems. The Heritage Foundation has argued that Common Core Standards will do little good in fixing what are deeply ingrained problems within the education system.

45 states, four territories, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core Standards. This educational program will be introduced into all Arizona schools by the fall of 2014.

The meeting is free and open to the public. All educators, parents, grandparents and other interested persons are encouraged to attend to find out more about what this program will be teaching the children of America. There will be a time for questions and answers following Huppenthal’s presentation.
