Our next meeting will be December 14th at the Knights of Columbus Hall in West Monroe at 10AM. Kathryn Goppelt will give us a presentation on Common Core. Kathryn Goppelt resides in Gonzales, Louisiana with her husband of twenty-nine years, Lou, and their five children who were all educated at home. Kathryn has a B.S in Secondary Education from Iowa State University. She has been active in Ascension Parish government for almost twenty years and is presently the chairwoman for the Ascension Republican Party. She is also working with teachers and mothers who are concerned about Common Core and the educational policy it embraces to inform the public with facts. One of the results of their work is the presentation that she with the help of her son created entitled “A Roadmap to Understanding Common Core.” Their vision is that others will understand and share what they have learned, networking with others across the state of Louisiana to bring the control of education back to parents, classroom teachers and local school districts. Look forward to seeing you there!
