Maryanne Troy shared concerns about Common Core.

Superintendent Dr. Phyllis Harrington said there is no way to opt out of the common core program, no method of refusal. “We do not have any options as a public agency,” she said. “We have to obey state law. We can advocate for change, but we are obligated to obey State Education Department rules. I would not disagree with the people who have spoken here tonight, but in every classroom we are implementing Common Core to the best of our ability and in the best interests of our students. We are advocating, but we can’t do any more.”
