Letter to the editor: Common Core meetings important

After thoroughly researching the Common Core education initiative, I believe it is decimating our educational process and leading our children to learn to adopt a socialistic mentality.

New Mexico Secretary of Education-Designate Hanna Skandera is expected to speak in support of Common Core 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Bella Vista  Arts Academy.

Education blogger Kris Nielsen will present his opposition to Common Core 5:30 p.m. May 8 at the Clovis-Carver Public Library.

I believe it is important for parents, grandparents, and concerned citizens to attend these meetings because our students’ education is already being affected.
