A top school administrator in Oklahoma is unhappy about the state’s abandonment of Common Core.
Check this out:
While other states are mandating revisions to Common Core be phased in over time, Oklahoma went a step further. Under a bill signed by Gov. Mary Fallin in June, Oklahoma’s schools must immediately abandon Common Core and return to pre-2010 state standards in math and English, while they wait for the state to craft new standards in the subjects that are required to have no similarity with Common Core.
Dr. Keith Ballard, superintendent for the Tulsa School District, the state’s second largest, says the abrupt change of course the state is mandating demands more than is possible.
