#STOPCOMMONCORE: Lawmakers say Common Core implementation creating ‘chaos’
“You really can’t have a fact-finding conversation when there’s only one side speaking,” stated Steve Monaghan, president of the Louisiana Federation of Teachers.
State Rep. Steve Carter (R-Baton Rouge) opened the hearing by indicating that everyone will have a chance to talk about their concerns will Common Core, but Monday would not be that time.
“However,” he said, “the public will have ample opportunity to provide testimony at future legislative meetings on this issue.”
“But any public meeting, according to the public meeting laws, is supposed to allow public comment,” countered Debbie Meaux, president of the Louisiana Association of Educators. “So I’m very disappointed that they are not following that law.”
