					Hearing Set for July 22-23 to Assess Common Core Implementation in Arkansas

Little Rock, AR, July 16, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The Arkansas House and Senate Education Committees are
scheduled to meet to discuss the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Arkansas. The
members of the committees will hear testimonies from both those who support Common Core and those
who oppose it. Arkansas Against Common Core presenters include Grace Lewis, parent; Jennifer Arnold,
parent; Betty Yerger, retired educator; and Patrick Richardson, student. The hearing will begin on
Monday, July 22nd at 1:00 p.m. and will continue on Tuesday, July 23rd at 9:00 a.m. The meetings will
be held in Room A of the MAC Building at 1 Capitol Mall in Little Rock. The meetings are open to the
public and all are encouraged to attend.

The Common Core State Standards Initiative has attracted national attention because of its controversial
methods. The standards have been quietly implemented through federal grants without public awareness.
Citizens in many states are now questioning whether the national standards violate their constitutional
rights and if the standards are even adequate.
