1-16-15 NC Common Core Commission Meeting

Yesterday, the NC Common Core Commission, known as the Academic Standards Review Commission (ASRC), met. The meeting location was changed. The meeting was held in the State Board of Education board room at the Department of Public Instruction so the meeting could finally be live streamed.
