Urbandale Schools to Offer Parent University on Iowa Core

High_School_EntranceI just wrote today about a school district offering a class to teach parents how to do Common Core math.  Urbandale Community Education, we have learned, wants to teach parents about the Iowa Core on Monday, October 20th at 7:00p at the Urbandale High School Performing Arts Center.

From an email they sent a few days ago:

Urbandale Community Education invites you to join us for a FREE informational session regarding the District’s implementation of the Iowa Core.

The Iowa Core represents our statewide academic standards, which describe what students should know and be able to do in math, science, English language arts and social studies.

The Iowa Core also addresses 21st century skills in areas such as financial and technology literacy.  These state standards provide Iowa students, parents, teachers, and other stakeholders with a clear, common understanding of what students are expected to learn at every grade level, regardless of where they live.

Learn more about how the Iowa Core is being implemented in Urbandale at a FREE information session for parents.

We expect that they will address “misconceptions” about the Iowa Core so I’m pretty confident it will be nothing more than a propaganda session.  Has your school district offered such a class for parents?
