    In Forest's letter he requests that the Department of Public Instruction answer his questions by the August 2013 State Board of Education meeting.

    "With the start of the traditional school year only weeks away, State Board of Education meetings just don’t allow enough time to answer all of our questions in depth. Given these time constraints, we have outlined our questions in letter form to allow for a systematic approach to this dialogue. Hopefully this will expedite the process, and focus the discussion of Common Core at future board meetings,” said Forest.
