NYSED Commissioner King And Regents Chancellor Tisch Show Their Cowardice

Via Ed Notes, we find that King and Tisch have just announced Common Core meetings, giving about a week's notice, give or take a day:

More from Leonie:

Just learned that the first NYC NYSED/Regents forums on Common Core, testing and privacy – of which 16 others have already been scheduled and most held elsewhere in the state – are going to be held in Bronx and Brooklyn on the same night, just one week away: Tuesday Dec. 10.
Bronx at Evander Childs HS with Tisch, Brooklyn with King venue as yet unknown (at least to me); both from 6-8PM. More soon.
The one in Manhattan is scheduled for the very next night, Dec 11th. Interesting, that is the evening Diane Ravitch is meeting with parents and teachers at Julie's school in Red Hook.

Anything to hold the attendance down.

Less than a week's notice.

All three meetings held within 24 hours of each other.



  1. Need parents any more proof that Common Core is deadening than the treating children like robots or trained animals video?
    And it's actually on the Engageny website:

    Go to your nearest King/Tisch tour site this week!
    Truly shameful that this is on pop notice, so thwart organizing. Probably the same reasoning is afoot at NYSED to withhold the details of the Queens and Staten Island forums.
