I wasn't there, but apparently he talked for an hour and a half, took 5 questions, took lots of criticism and heat, and simply left...and then canceled the rest of the common core town hall meetings. One parent was arrested. This is an authoritarian rule of our education system IMO, spread the word in your local communities to put pressure on state ed to keep these meetings. Here is a link from our local paper to 3 articles.
