NC panel continues to review changes to Common Core

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A panel that has been working on reviewing North Carolina’s academic standards for more than a year is one step closer to giving their recommendation.

The 11-member committee met Friday afternoon to get more data from recently released state test scores.  They’re hoping this information can add to their decision as they review Common Core.

The committee was formed by the General Assembly, which is reviewing curriculum in math and English and will make recommendations for changes to the State Board of Education.

“We’re finding math to be probably be the most problematic in terms of the standards themselves. But we do have to dig a little deeper into those scores and try and determine where the issues exist.,” said Tammy Covil, Co-Chair of the Academic Standards Review Commission.

The first draft of the panel’s recommendation will be presented next month.
