Parents, students, and educators gather in Newburgh for a forum on hotly debated common core curriculum. YNN's Michael Howard reports.
NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- Newburgh Free Academy is hosting a workshop Thursday night, on the new Common Core Curriculum. The new system sets standards for what children in each grade must learn.
The meeting focuses on changes to the ELA and Math curriculums and new standards based report cards for kindergarten through fifth grade students.
School leaders will also discuss how parents can help their children through these new course requirements.
The workshop was held Thursday night in the NFA auditorium.
State Education Commissioner, Dr. John King, is also hosting a new round of community forums on the common Core standards. The first of those new forums was held in Albany on Thursday night.
Several forums were canceled after the first one, held earlier this month in Poughkeepsie, became heated.
