We have received the itinerary for Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan’s visit to Louisville on Thursday April 23.
He has four stops listed, but we feel the best place for us to gather and let him know how we feel would be at the Courier Journal on 525 W. Broadway in Louisville.
He is scheduled to speak there at 12:30. Duncan is expected to speak on Kentucky’s ESEA waiver and on the reauthorization of this key piece of education legislation in a chat with the Courier-Journal’s editorial board. It would be best if we start to arrive around 11:15. We have a professional banner and info to distribute, but if you want to make your own sign to let Mr. Duncan know how you feel about Common Core and all the useless testing, feel free to do so.
We have enclosed the link to his itinerary in case you want to show up at one of the other stops. Tell all your friends and neighbors about this. If groups want to co-ordinate carpooling, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know so we can get the message out.
We understand that parking is available near the CJ building.
We need a large crowd to show that KY may have been first to take on Common Core, but we won’t be the last state to remove it!
