    StateImpact hosted a panel discussion about the Common Core State Standards in Indianapolis on Friday, April 5, 2013.

    If you weren’t able to attend our Common Core panel discussion in Indianapolis on Friday, you can now watch our conversation online.

    We spoke with Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz, Indiana Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Education and Workforce Development Derek Redelman and Purposeful Curriculum Planning teacher trainer Lisa Froderman about the new academic standards adopted in whole or part by 46 states and the District of Columbia.

    Special thanks to WFYI for hosting, our panelists for participating and our audience for attending.

    We had far more questions about the Common Core than we could take during the hourlong discussion, so we’re adding them to our file of Core Questions.

    If you have questions about how the new standards will impact Indiana schools, let the education reporters find an answer. Send us an email, reach out to us on Twitter or connect with us on Facebook and let us know what questions you have about the Common Core.

    We use these questions to structure our reporting about the new standards, like the story on math instruction you saw last week.
