A candidate for Springfield school board says Common Core is good for students… but it may problematic for parents.
Nicole Evans is seeking the seat being vacated by Scott McFarland… who is running for the Springfield City Council. She says the controversial Common Core standards are reason-based and will help kids be competitive in the global economy. But she says it represents a big change in the teaching strategies their parents grew up with.
She vows if elected to look for ways to help parents be more engaged and better-equipped to assist their students with homework.
