SCHOOL DISTRICT OFFERS “COMMON CORE” MEETING TOMORROW

SCHOOL DISTRICT OFFERS “COMMON CORE” MEETING TOMORROW

No Child Left Behind, Race to the Top, and now the Common Core Standards are all approaches to improving educational outcomes in this country. If you’re confused about what the latest of these, the Common Core, adds to the mix (and you should be), reporter Dan Stork tells you about an opportunity to sort things out…

The Morongo Unified School District will hold the second of two informational meetings on the Common Core Standards Thursday, February 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the La Contenta Middle School library. The Common Core is a states-based, non-Federal movement to define what K-12 students should learn in mathematics and English language arts. One site characterizes the approach as being focused on “real understanding,” through going deeper into fewer topics. What are those topics? Who is choosing them? What is this going to mean for students? For testing regimens? For teachers?  This is an issue that will affect all students; come out and learn about it, and ask the hard questions.
