December 4, 2013 Twin Tiers (WENY) - The Common Core school standards have been a hot button topic as of late. Tonight the Watkins Glen School Superintendent and others will host a conversation on the standards, presented by Citizens for Consititutional Preservation.
       Parents will be able to ask questions in a community forum style meeting after a short presentation about the Common Core -- designed to prepare students for college or a job by the time they graduate from high school. Critics say they were never tested in real classrooms.
     They're being implemented in 45 states and the District of Columbia. 
     The forum will begin and seven o'clock Wednesday night at the Odessa Community Hall.
