In a previous post several folks asked about the Common Core initiative in Tennessee Schools. I found the following links, which have more links to try to explain the major points, but it would be good if we could get someone who is knowledgeable to respond here.
This particular link might be close to a Q&A page that could help http://expectmoretn.org/fact-fiction.pdf
Here are the other links:
I have to admit that since our daughter is several years past her University degree, we have not paid much attention to local education issues, so I am starting from 0. Has it been discussed in open forums?
Even if it has, and we have these website links, can we discuss the issue here so concerned parents, grandparents and just those curious could get some of their questions answered?
Those interested need to get others involved so that there is some momentum here. That might get "someone in the know" to respond and fill us in.
Keep in mind folks that just in case we do get someone to explain, we do not want to shoot the messenger, just in case you do not like what you hear. :-)
