I have two boys going into public high school next year and I am concerned. When I first heard about the Common Core educational standards I was hopeful that they would establish an appropriate bar for both educating our children and, in part, evaluating their teachers. Since then I have heard, read, and seen far more opposition to the Common Core than support for it. I think it is time for me to understand the Common Core for high school. And for this I need to read and understand it. Doing so alone and without guidance and/or interpretation is mostly likely impractical. In the past I have benefited from using a study group to understand our state's budget. I think I need the same here.
If you are interested in creating a Common Core study group please contact me either via Facebook, email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone 401-441-2062.
