Unanswered Questions On Those “10,000 Comments”

Those who attended the North Carolina Common Core legislative research committee meetings might remember remarks made by Dr. Atkinson about “10,000” comments or pieces of feedback apparently given on the standards prior to their implementation.

I’ve asked for those comments back in July and have yet to receive them.  Perhaps publishing this question will help the data get to me.

Hello Ms. Jeter,
I would like to request an electronic copy of the “10,000 comments” Dr. Atkinson has referred to as being collected as feedback to the Common Core in the state of North Carolina.

I’d also like copies of the methodology, including distribution method and any other associated documentation.

Thank you!

I did get a response, which I reported on at the end of August including details about NC New Schools ties to Common Core, but it bears repeating:

I am working on this request. The individual who spearheaded the Accountability and Curriculum Reform Effort which started in 2008 and resulted in the 2010 adoption of the current Standard Course of Study is no longer with NCDPI and now works at New Schools, so I am having to go back into archival information. But your request is on my list and will be fulfilled.
