Tom Brennan(Hour 3b, c) Tom Brennan called in for another tremendous discussion on education.  How would Tom approach improving the standards?  He’d go back to the future, Circa 1930, and implement the more “narrow and focused” standards from that period.  Standards that included developing grammar skills to improve expression and communication skills.  Rich and Tom also delved in to the Common Core debate.  What does the former superinendent of Manchester schools think and what advice does he have for current Superintendent Dr. Debra Livingston about transparency in the process moving forward?
