State ed commissioner to visit RBA

New York State Education Commissioner John King will visit the Rochester Business Alliance on Thursday to talk with RBA members about the widespread adoption of Common Core State Standards in K-12 education.

He will also address the opportunities and challenges the initiative presents and what business leaders can do to support Common Core, ultimately helping to improve the economic competitiveness of the region, state, and nation.

King oversees more than 7,000 public and independent elementary and secondary schools serving 3.1 million students, and hundreds of other educational institutions across New York state including higher education, libraries and museums. A former high school teacher and middle school principal, King has earned a national reputation for his vision and commitment to education reform.
