Local media reported that testimony given by former Common Core Validation committee members before the NC Common Core Academic Standards Review Commission indicated that a ‘total rewrite’ was necessary.
As I noted earlier this week, that’s not quite what was said — you can’t simply ‘re-write’ the Common Core. To reinforce what was actually said, I’ve put together a clip from video taken at the meeting.
Major Dave (who took video of the session) has given me permission to make clips from his footage. The audio level was a little low, so turn up your speakers.
Please watch it all the way to the end and pay attention to the follow-up question from Commission member Watts.
She asks if Massachusetts is using the standards Stotsky has made free to the public. The answer she gets from Dr. Stotsky sends the room into cheers and applause.
