The “Common Ground on Common Core” conversations represent an effort to provide a forum for people to host productive dialogue on education. During this series of seven 2-hour conversations (where participants attend one conversation, each with 10-15 different people), individuals with diverse views will be able to discuss their views and values in a confidential and informal environment.
The goal is not to build consensus on these contentious issues. Rather, the conversations will engage people who are eager both to hear and be heard in facilitated dialogue that uncovers values and opinions where consensus may already exist underneath the public vitriol.
