Among topics to be discussed will be state testing

            Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (R-Guilford) announced that he will be hosting a roundtable Education Summit on Thursday, June 27 at the Chenango Valley High School. The roundtable will feature a discussion with Chenango Valley School District Interim Superintendent David Gill, New York State Regent James Tallon, Southern Tier teachers and parents in the community on the issues facing New York’s classrooms and our children’s education. Crouch said that topics to cover will include, but are not limited to, Annual Professional Performance Reviews (APPR), Common Core, state testing, and how unfunded mandates take the focus off of educating our youth.

            “The education of our children has always been an important issue for me,” said Crouch. “My office is always in regular contact with school administration officials, school boards, teachers and parents, but we do not always have an opportunity to have an open discussion from those who are directly impacting the education of our children, which is our teachers. I hope this Education Summit will accomplish bringing parents, teachers and administrators together from across the 122nd Assembly District to have an open discussion about how decisions that are being made in Albany affect the education of children classrooms. I think this will be a great forum, where our parents get to hear from teachers, education officials and vice versa. It is also a good way to raise questions and offer suggestions on how Albany can better represent and serve our schools and their teachers.”
