It was another chance to ask the State Education Commissioner about the new Common Core standards.

Tuesday night, Commissioner John King, and two members of the Board of Regents participated in a forum hosted by WXXI.

Parents and teachers asked the questions. One of the questions was about teaching the material to children who may not be quite ready for it yet.

Common Core is a set of standards that officials say is designed to better prepare students for college or a career, and teach them to be more critical thinkers.

Parents have told us they are concerned with the implementation of the standards.
