After a firestorm of charges from parents that questions from the attendees were screened and reworded at the Common Core meeting in Baltimore County on Sept. 19, the MSDE will repeat the same format at the Prince George’s County forum on Oct. 1.
Bill Reinhardt, Public Information Officer for MSDE, said, “We tried it with open mic the first time [in Talbot County] and we got about half the questions answered.”
The Prince George’s County meeting will be the final of four Common Core meetings in the state.
When questioned on how they would address the concerns of parents who said their questions were screened and reworded, he said, “Some of the cards went 4-5 paragraphs, so they were re-worded.”
So, instead of answering half the questions, the MSDE is opting for half-answering the questions.
Please call the office of MSDE Superintendent Lillian Lowery at 410-767-0462 and request that the format of the meeting be open mic instead of written questions.
The Common Core forum in Prince George’s County is on October 1 from 7-8:30pm at Charles Herbert Flowers High School in Springdale.
