State education officials are scheduled to attend a public meeting Oct. 16 in Kenner to discuss the Common Core, a uniform academic standard system that Louisiana and 44 other states have adopted. The meeting, hosted by state Rep. Julie Stokes, R-Kenner/Metairie , begins at 6:30 p.m. in the City Park Pavilion at 3800 Loyola Drive.
Panelists will include state Education Superintendent John White, Board of Elementary and Secondary Education members Jim Garvey of Metairie and Kira Jones of New Orleans and Jefferson schools Superintendent James Meza.
**** This panel is ALL PRO Common Core. I suggest you come with clear and concise questions and that you direct them to one person on the panel and wait for an answer. Bring documentation of your points if you can.
