Common Core is the education buzz creating waves of controversy across the country, including Tennessee and Georgia. Critics call it an academic folly of standards that are unproven in real classrooms. Supporters however, insist the concerns are overblown and the ultimate sweeping changes will improve reading and math skills for students at every grade. One thing both sides agree on: When, or if, fully implemented, Common Core stands to reshape the vast majority of American classrooms.


WTVC NewsChannel 9 is hosting a Live Town Hall meeting to explore the Pro's and Con's for critics and supporters. It will be broadcast live on This TV July 24 from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. (EDT). You'll find ThisTV on these cable channels: Broadcast 9.2, EPB CH 169, Charter CH 174, Comcast CH 208, Dalton Utilities CH 157 and Bledsoe Telephone CH 41. It will also be streamed live right here.


Want to join the conversation? Submit any Common Core questions to Producers@NewsChannel9.com, or to our Facebook or Twitter pages. Use #YourVoiceYourFuture hashtag to make sure we see your questions and comments.
