NASHVILLE, Tenn. -– Senate Education Committee Chairman Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) has set meeting dates of September 19th and 20th for Committee members to review facts regarding the state’s Common Core Standards.  Gresham announced last month that the Committee will hear testimony from critics and proponents of the standards, as well as state education officials.

The meeting, which had tentatively been planned for an earlier date, was moved to the September date due to scheduling conflicts.

The hearings will be held at 1:00 pm on Thursday, September 19, 2013 in Room 12 of the Legislative Plaza in Nashville. The hearings will continue on September 20 at 9:00 am at the same location.
