Join the conversation online.

Wednesday marks the second of three Common Core hearings Florida is holding in an effort to get feedback from parents and communities about the state’s new education standards.

Whether or not you can make it to Davie tonight, we want you to be part of the conversation.

StateImpact Florida is teaming up with our partners at WLRN-Miami Herald news and Florida International University’s journalism program to cover the event. A group of student journalists in our WLRN/FIU Radio Storytelling class will be live tweeting the hearings with updates, context and on-the-ground observations.

Got questions about who’s in the room? What the terms being used mean? How it’s being received? Let us know!

You can join the conversation in the live chat box below or reach us on Twitter with @WLRN and #CommonCore. The Florida Channel will be streaming the proceedings on web channel 7.

    You cannot comment on the thread in real time. Wow! My comments are in moderation? Fine. If you plan to moderate it should be in real time. You seem to be fighting those of us against Common Core. I only say that because my comments have been in “moderation” for an hour. Come on…Yes, CC is a violation of the 4th and 10th amendment and also the 5th amendment. If you are supporting CC and you don’t know why I made my statement about violations of our Constitution perhaps you should sit back, stop fighting for CC, and read the Constitution.
