Governor McCrory’s press release today is concerning.
The governor also told the audience attending the North Carolina Chamber of Commerce’s Conference on Education in Chapel Hill that students should be held to the reading and mathematics standards laid out in the Common Core curriculum. However, he noted improvement is needed in their implementation.
No, Governor, North Carolina students need to be held to a higher standard than Common Core. Content standards controlled by the people of this state and not owned by Washington trade organizations.
Citizens who are interested in this subject should contact the Governor’s Office today.
