Last week in Franklin a panel of education experts met to deliver a presentations and answer questions about the state-adopted common core standards. I was not there but as the Williamson Herald reported it, " a growing buzz of dissension among a faction of the crowd
overshadowed panelists’ discussion, eventually resulting in outbursts
from the audience."
The panel consisted of Kevin Huffman, commissioner for the Tennessee State Department of Education; Williamson County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney; president and CEO of of the non-profit organization State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE), Jamie Woodson; a regional math coordinator, David Williams; and president of the Parent-Teacher Organization at Kenrose Elementary, Jane McGrath. The meeting took place at The People’s Church on Murfreesboro Road in Franklin.
