Otter Task Force ♥s Common Core

Item: ‘Common Core’ gets near-unanimous OK: Idaho education panel makes recommendation/John Miller, AP

More Info: All 31 panelists except one – Madison School District Superintendent Geoff Thomas – voted to support Idaho’s push to advance with so-called “Common Core” requirements in 2014 that are part of a 45-state effort to align educational standards across America from the more-fragmented existing system. Common Core has become mired in divisive debate across the country, as groups such as the National Republican Party have labeled it an “inappropriate overreach.” In Idaho, lawmakers including former House Speaker Lawerence Denney, R-Midvale, have suggested plans to scuttle Common Core when the Legislature meets in January.
