Head Of IEA Defends Common Core Standards


The head of the largest Illinois teachers union says the new Common Core standards will be a good thing for students… if teachers are given the time and professional development to implement it properly. 

 

The standards have been adopted by 45 states, including Illinois, and are intended to set more rigorous standards for students, to better prepare them for college and careers.  Illinois Education Association President Cinda Klickna says it may take some time to adapt to the new standards, but believes students will be better off for it in the long run. 

 

Klickna will take part in a panel discussion to explain the Common Core standards tonight (Tuesday) at 6:30 at Chatham Glenwood High School.
