Several local legislators met Friday with the Louisiana Association of Educators to discuss a public forum on Common Core State Standards that will be held next week. State Sens. Dan “Blade” Morrish and Ronnie Johns and state Rep. Brett Geymann met with LAE officials to prepare for the Our Community, Our Schools forum, which will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9, in Lake Charles-Boston High Academy of Learning.
According to Terry Holden, unified service director at LAE, the forum’s purpose is to give parents and teachers a voice regarding the CCSS.
“The CCSS have become of great concern to area parents, teachers and lawmakers,” Holden said. “The Louisiana Association of Educators is presenting this forum in hopes of allowing both sides of the subject to be heard and as part of the National Education Association and LAE’s Day of Action.”
