COMMON CORE: Representative Jay Chase Urges You to Request a Public Hearing

COMMON CORE: Representative Jay Chase Urges You to Request a Public Hearing
Posted by Paula Antolini


A message from State Representative Jay Case ( R )  (63rd General Assembly District) regarding Common Core:

Dear Neighbors,
 
Many of you have expressed concern over the implementation of Common Core, particularly as it relates to teacher evaluation.
 
On Monday, Feb. 10, the education committee raised 23 bills for public hearings and potential action by the legislature. Not one of these bills addressed the issue of Common Core or teaching evaluations.
 
This is exactly how we have ended up in the predicament that we are in right now. Common Core was adopted outside of the legislative process, which meant that too many voices were left out of the debate.
 
I urge you all to contact the co-chairs of the Education Committee and request a public hearing on Common Core. I do not believe that an issue as complex as Common Core should be adopted without input from those who it will affect most: teachers, administrators, parents, and students.
 
You can contact Co-Chair Senator Andrea Stillman by calling her office at 1-800-842-1420, or emailing her by going here: http://www.senatedems.ct.gov/Stillman-mailform.php

 
You can contact Co-Chair State Representative Andrew Fleischmann by calling his office at 1-860-240-0429 or emailing him at Andrew.Fleischmann@cga.ct.gov.
 
Please pass this along to as many teachers, administrators, and parents as you can. Use the social media #LetUsSpeak to help spread the word. We are.
 
Sincerely,
Jay Case
State Representative, 63rd District
