GUEST POST: What I Saw At The #NCGA Senate Ed Cmte Mtg

This is a guest post (below the break)from a reader who attended yesterday’s Senate Education committee meeting, where SB 812 was discussed and passed. SB 815 was also discussed and passed, which is important as it serves to protect our student’s privacy and data.

@NCAE’s Mark Jewell: You said you had a study that said teachers love #CommonCore. Share it with the public – including the metholdology.
