Common Core Forums

State Education Commissioner John King Jr. has announced a series of 12 forums on the new Common Core learning standards and other reforms. He's faced criticism since an earlier decision to cancel a slate of PTA-arranged appearances after one in Poughkeepsie last week devolved into a shouting match.

King says future forums will include Board of Regents members and will be moderated by state legislators in school districts around the state. The first will be in Albany on Thursday.
