Founded on Truth hosts Common Core presentation

Wednesday, July 3, 2013 by JOSEPH BROWN Special to The Press in Local News

The near-capacity audience at Hope Community Church, Weisenberg Township, rose to its feet, clapping in appreciation at the conclusion of Dr. Peg Luksik's presentation about Common Core standards and how they will affect Pennsylvania.

After a little more than 90 minutes of pouring out information to the crowd, Luksik was barely given a moment to catch her breath before being flooded with questions for the evening's final 30 minutes.

There were so many follow-up queries it was obvious Luksik's message was well-received by those in attendance.
