Opportunities and Risks: Practical Issues with the Common Core Rollout
The political debate about Common Core is ongoing, but other issues are coming to the fore. What are the checks and balances amid the frenzy of products purportedly aligned to the standards? How are states and districts engaging parents? Are colleges going to accept that high school graduates educated to the standards are college-ready? Panelists address these and other issues. Speakers: Gov.
John Engler, president of the Business Roundtable; Maryland State Superintendent of Schools Lillian Lowery and Michael McShane of the American Enterprise Institute; Randi Weingarten, American Federation of Teachers.
