Please participate.  Ask your questions, they need to be heard.


Common Core Forum

The chairs of the Senate and House Education Committees, Senator John
Goedde and Representative Reed DeMordaunt, announced today their plans
to bring Idahoans together for a serious discussion on Common Core.

“In an effort to be transparent, we want to allow the public to share
questions and concerns regarding Idaho Common Core,” Senator Goedde

The Forum will take place on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Lincoln Auditorium in the Senate West Wing (WW02) of the State Capitol.

Participants must submit their questions in advance. Questions are to be
emailed or sent to the House Education Secretary. Email address: Physical address: EW49, Routing Code 38, State Capitol, Boise, ID 83720-0038

All questions must be submitted by Friday, January 17, 2014 at 5:00 p.m.

Chairman DeMordaunt said, “It is critical that questions regarding the
Idaho Common Core are submitted in advance so that they can be
thoroughly researched.”

A formal panel of educators, Department of Education personnel and
others, both proponents and opponents, will be a part of the panel and
the research process.  They, in turn, will then prepare answers
regarding the Idaho Common Core Standards.

The Forum will be structured so that the audience can see every question
presented on a screen and then those questions will be answered by the
panelists.  No questions will be taken from the audience on the day of
the Common Core Forum. However, the Forum proceedings will be available
via the IPTV website at   (click on Legislature Live) or directly at
