The Senate Education Committee is holding a public hearing scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, April 8th at 8:30am on Senate Bill 101 (SB101) to repeal the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards. Here is a link to the bill.
There is a group of PTA members and other education representatives who are planning on traveling to Montgomery to speak in support of our current Math and English Alabama College and Career Ready Standards that day. We are looking for more parents and, if possible, students to speak out in support of our standards and against repeal. It would be very helpful to have speakers who are parents with a military background as well. Please consider speaking to the committee.
