State Education Commissioner, John King
Town hall education forums, canceled due to disruptions, will be rescheduled.
After the first in a series of public meetings scheduled to discuss the controversial common core curriculum became unruly in Poughkeepsie last week, Education Commissioner John King called off the remaining forums in the state.
According to the state Education Department, new events will be scheduled around the state but in a different format. One will be a small, invitation-only session, but the spokesman confirmed there will be other regional meetings that are open to the public.
The spokesman says the commissioner hopes to iron out the details within the week.
