Idaho Colleges Back Common Core

The presidents of Idaho’s three public universities and Lewis Clark State College are backing Idaho’s Core Standards, which demands a rigorous education rooted in problem solving and critical thinking. In the letter, the presidents said the standard provide students with “advanced mathematics that are required for college majors in science, technology, engineering and mathematics and the ever-growing demand for skilled workers in the modern economy.” Idaho Core Standards are part of Common Core State Standards, a movement among 45 states to develop a set of goals for what students should know by the time they graduate from high school. Idaho’s public schools will implement those standards beginning with the 2013-2014 school year/Bill Roberts, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Will the Coeur d'Alene School Board support Common Core when the new trustees take office?
