Meeting Description: 

The summit seeks to explore and accurately represent the realities of the
Common Core, from its intended goals to its development and implementation
across the United States. With a multiplicity of competing voices in the
public discourse surrounding several states’ decisions to repeal or not adopt
the Common Core, it can be difficult for community stakeholders at all levels
to evaluate the realities of the standards. From the creation of the goals and
policy development to the eventual implementation of the Common Core, what has
emerged is a set of standards that has far more questions than answers. The
goal of this summit is to work toward demystifying the Common Core State
Standards and to come to a common understanding of the strengths and
weaknesses of this initiative and how to move forward.
