Common Core Standards May Take Time to Get Used To


The head of the largest teachers union in the state says Common Core will be a good thing for students… but it may take some time for parents to get used to it.

 

The new, more rigorous standards for reading and math are being phased in around the state… and are already prompting some complaints that they may be too challenging, especially for younger students.

And she says it will be important to make sure that teachers have adequate time for planning and professional development built into their workday.
