Board of Ed Meets with Common Core Sponsor

Although supporters of the Common Core Standards say they’re raising the bar for education, controversy still remains here in Utah, as state leaders fight the perception that the initiative is a product of the federal government. Adopted by the Beehive State and 45 others, the standards focus on math and language arts. Today, the State Board of Education met with a sponsor of the Common Core to discuss some of the challenges and benefits educators are experiencing. KCPW’s Charlotte Duren has the details.
