A community meeting is happening tonight at the University of North Florida with an important purpose.

It’s an invitation for people to better understand the new Common Core State Standards for education in Florida.

Common Core, as it’s called, has become controversial in the state as of late, with some questioning Florida’s move to join most other states in adopting the standards.

Trey Csar, executive director of the Jacksonville Public Education Fund, joined Melissa on First Coast Connect to discuss tonight’s meeting on the Common Core State Standards.
