I’ve just gotten back from the Common Core call to action event, We Will Not Conform and my inbox has exploded.

The Scotland County Board of Education is confused on Common Core. They seem to think it’s a great idea and that the repeal of it is a bad idea. The following excerpts come from The Laurinburg Exchange’s article, School board decries state’s decision to repeal Common Core.
Scotland County’s Board seem more worried about the monkeying they are doing with test scores than with the fact Common Core is a fundamentally flawed experiment being performed on our kids. Here’s Board member Jamie Southerland expressing his test angst: Continue reading
