ALBANY - Parents and educators in the Capital Region will finally get their chance to tell Education Commissioner John King exactly what they think of the newly implemented and controversial Common Core curriculum.
There wasn't even supposed to be a meeting in Albany.
But after one in Poughkeepsie turned chaotic, one is scheduled here from 4 to 7 p.m. at Myers Middle School.
In order to accommodate dismissal for the students and teachers at Myers, people wanting to attend the Common Core forum won't be allowed to park until 3:15.
Parking will be tight so car-pooling, walking if possible and public transportation for this event are being strongly encouraged.
The meeting will be moderated by Assembly person Pat Fahy and the League of Women Voters.
The Myers Middle School auditorium holds 650 people.
Another 700 can listen via a live feed in the gym.
Earlier in the week NewsChannel 13 was told that comments would be limited to two minutes.
Because this is a regional event, people are expected from as near as Albany country but also Rensselaer, Schenectady and from as far as Saratoga County.
