St. Francis College in Brooklyn will host a debate between NAS President Peter Wood and Sol Stern of the Manhattan Institute on Monday, October 20, at 12:30 in the College’s Maroney Forum for Arts, Culture and Education.

Can the Common Core offer opportunities to restore academic content to the nation's schools, or will it lower standards while pretending to raise them? In light of the recent release of the broadside, Common Core: Yea or Nay?, Wood and Stern will offer insight on whether the Common Core advances or undermines academic achievement.
