Committee Hearing Tomorrow

Tomorrow Representative Kelly will hold the second of four hearings on Common Core.  Remember, Common Core is only paused.   The hearings this summer are being held to inform lawmakers.  A vote will be taken before October 1 to determine the future of Common Core in Michigan.

The first hearing featured two pro-Common Core speakers and none against it.  There second hearing will feature two against and two for the Common Core.   Consider contacting Representative Kelly and mentioning how the hearings have been lopsided.
