Tonight 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 StateImpact Florida analysis of jobs in Florida public schools shows that while full-time staffing is almost back to pre-recession levels, one group of employees hasn’t come back: the support staff.
