The compromise on Common Core

  // Wednesday, 02 July 2014 07:28 //

N.C. lawmakers seem determined to unwisely repeal and replace the state’s Common Core education standards. But at least a House and Senate conference committee this week agreed that a panel being created to rework education requirements could consider keeping some Common Core standards – reformulated and under a different name.

That would align with the Senate version of the repeal-and-replace moves.

It’s not as good as keeping Common Core in place and fixing its implementation problems. But it’s better than the alternative of completely tossing standards that most N.C. educators say are good and worthwhile – and wasting upwards of $100 million in state and federal dollars that have been spent on teacher training, materials and other needs associated with Common Core.

Said Sen. Jerry Tillman, a bill sponsor, of the final version the two bodies agreed on: “The standards commission can consider anything rigorous and North Carolina-owned – anything.
