Assemblyman Lopez to Host Two "Open Forums for Education" This Week

Written By Editor on 12/9/13 | 12/9/13


Assemblyman Peter Lopez's (R-Schoharie) office announced last week that he will be hosting two separate "Open Forums for Education" that will allow members of the community, parents, teachers and school administrators to address education-related concerns to the assemblyman directly.
 
The first will be held on Wednesday, December 11th, 7pm at Grand Gorge's ONC BOCES located in the Northern Catskill's Occupational Center and the other is scheduled for Thursday, December 12th at the same time inside of Cobleskill-Richmondville's high school auditorium. (Senator Seward will be attending both forums, although he will be joining the Cobleskill-Richmondville event in progress due to a prior commitment.)
 
Neither forum will focus exclusively on the controversial Common Core program, but will provide the community with an opportunity to discuss testing procedures, teacher evaluations, Race to the Top, and other education associated topics.
 
Saying that local schools continue to operate on "shifting sands - from state budget challenges, to the property-tax cap, to Regents and the impacts of Race to the Top," Assemblyman Lopez is "very distressed by the impact these rapid-fire changes will have and are having on our schools." Which is the reason why he is hosting the two upcoming forums.
