Common Core Controversy Continues

LAStateSealA lot of controversy is surrounding the Common Core Curriculum.  It started with a group of governors seeking a better way to provide education to their states, but it has become a lightning rod for some conservatives.

Today, we asked the Rapides Parish Superintendent his opinion of the curriculum.

For now, Louisiana is among the many states which has adopted the Common Core.

Meanwhile, today in Baton Rouge, the members of the State Board of Education made some changes to the Common Core in Louisiana.  They’re giving school districts some more flexibility.

More information is available about the Common Core on the BESE web site.
