Common Core divides incumbents and challengers

But then, some pre-teenagers she knows are behind in school and don't know about slavery or who Abraham Lincoln was.

What's the answer? Is Common Core going to destroy public education, or are such standards the key to fixing it?

Guillory, the director of the local homeless advocacy group Trinity Without Borders, posed the question Thursday during a debate featuring Sarasota County School Board candidates.

The answers depended mostly on whether she heard from an incumbent or a challenger.

Common Core, the controversial national education standards being implemented in many states across the country, have been altered slightly and renamed the Florida Standards here.

They have become a leading issue in the School Board campaign leading to the Aug. 26 election. Incumbents Jane Goodwin and Shirley Brown — along with District 1 challengers Ken Marsh and Paul Schafer — have supported the standards while the other candidates have not.
