House, Senate education committees set joint session on Common Core

The House and Senate education committees have scheduled a joint session for Jan. 22 to hear from a panel of experts on Common Core standards, and the committee chairs say they’ll accept written questions in advance from anyone to be submitted to the panel, Idaho Education News reporter Clark Corbin reports. “One of the challenges of Common Core is there is a lot of misinformation out there about what Common Core is and what it isn’t,” said House Education Chairman Reed DeMordaunt, R-Eagle. He called the joint session “an effort to be as transparent as possible.” You can read Corbin’s full report here at
