On Nov. 19, the League of Women Voters invites the entire community to hear Dr. Gene Schmidt, superintendent of Los Alamos Schools and Gerry Washburn, assistant superintendent at their monthly Lunch with a Leader.
The topic will be the Common Core Curriculum that LAPS is implementing. The talk is upstairs at Mesa Library from 11:40 a.m.-1 p.m.
Schmidt and Washburn will be talking about the Common Core Curriculum that New Mexico and 44 other states recently adopted as part of the waiver procedure from No Child Left Behind. As with any new program there is controversy surrounding the implementation.
They will be discussing the various aspects of the Common Core, what it means for N.M, students, how it differs from current practices, and the advantages and disadvantages of adopting it to educate NM students. As always there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
Schmidt has been superintendent in Los Alamos for four years. Prior to being selected as superintendent for Los Alamos, he was superintendent in Washington. Washburn has been a teacher, vice principal, and principal in Los Alamos schools prior to being Human Resources director last year and assistant superintendent this year.
