Common Core Ignites Math War in North Carolina
A state group established by the legislature called the Academic Standards Review Commission has before it a recommendation – written by one of its work groups – to dump Common Core math. The commission is set to vote on its final report in December.
The proposal would have the state replace Common Core math in the lower grades with the math standards used in Minnesota. John Scheick, a former university math professor who led the commission’s math review, criticized the teaching methods being used with Common Core math.
