    Brewster, N.Y. – 12/11/2013 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson) is inviting parents, teachers and concerned residents to attend a Common Core Forum at the Carmel Town Hall on January 16th at 6:00 PM.

    Senator Greg Ball will be hosting the community forum to review the impact and effectiveness of the new Common Core Standards in New York State. The new standards were designed to provide a uniformed standard for students, preparing them for college and careers. However, many residents have raised concerns with the program and its implementation.

    “I am hosting this Common Core Community Forum to hear first hand from my constituents and those affected by these new standards. My office has been inundated with phone calls, emails, letters and faxes from parents, teachers, students and community members that are very concerned with this new program. We must be committed to provide our students with the best possible education available. However, education should not be one size fits all,” said Senator Greg Ball.

    The public and those in the education community are invited to attend. Attendees will be given a chance to speak, but will be asked to limit their remarks to three minutes.
