How cool is it to be able to write such a post title?
I have two events in March, both out-of-state (i.e., not in Louisiana).
First, I will be a panelist at the first Network for Public Education Conference in Austin, Texas, on Saturday, March 1 and Sunday, March 2.
I am scheduled to be on a couple panels. However, the most popular will likely be the Common Core panel scheduled for Sunday morning, March 2, from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
Diehard Common Core promoter and American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten and I are to be on this panel together.
I plan to be both pointed and civil.
The panel format is such that I will have seven minutes to speak in opening and three minutes at the close. Thirty minutes will be devoted to audience questions.
In planning my seven-minute opener, I was wishing I might have some other venue in which to continue what I can only begin to say in seven minutes regarding Common Core.
As of today, it just so happens that I will have such an opportunity– at the Stop Common Core in New York State rally in Long Island on Saturday, March 29, 2014, from 12 to 4 p.m.
The rally will be held at the Comsewogue High School football field, 565 Bicycle Path, Port Jefferson Station, NY, 11776.
