Everything our department of education does should have the very clear goal of academic success of our children and should open doors to success. Let us hope that the recent adoption of ‘common core’ standards leads Missouri’s children closer to that goal. Let us remember that each child is unique and learns differently than others and hope that these standards allow each child to access quality education. Following is an excerpt and a link to the full article.
Jefferson City, Mo – infoZine – Commissioner of Education Chris L. Nicastro said that she will recommend that the State Board of Education take action in August to formally adopt a new set of “common core” academic standards which were released nationally.
The Common Core State Standards were officially released this morning by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The standards establish clear and consistent goals for learning that will prepare America’s children for success in college and work.
