NC Common Core
Commission 05/18/15
The following are my live tweets from the NC Academic Standards Review

Commission (ASRC) meeting held on May 18, 2015. The ASRC is tasked with

reviewing and replacing Common Core in the state of North Carolina.

Highlights included:

Charlotte-Mecklenburg's Ann Clark actually showed up. This is the first time she's been to an ASRC meeting in person

since 2014.

Dr. Sheick calling out the Common Core as being inflexible with regard to latitude teachers have to adapt methods to

their students.

Co-Chair Peek calling for the Chamber of Commerce to come in and present to the commission in June. Co-Chair

Coval responded to this invitation of Peek's by saying 'let them come in. I have questions for them. Peek then responded

with 'uh oh...". See the tweet.

NOTE: I would remind everyone that the Chamber of Commerce formed 'HireStandardsNC' expressly to push the

Common Core and has had the effect of drowning out citizen voices. Only one meeting of the ASRC has involved critics

of the Common Core in over 9 meetings to date.

Parents and citizens may finally get a chance to speak, for 3 minutes each, in the upcoming June meeting.

Ann Clark recommended NC Principals & Assistant Principals Assoc. be brought in for July. NCPAPA supports Common

Core. Read their position statement as given to the NC General Assembly.

Dr. McCollum - Our committee is looking at California ELA
#ASRC #StopCommonCore
Why are they looking at CA? Mass. is far superior.

CA is using Common Core, is this committee looking at OLDER
CA standards? #ASRC #StopCommonCore

Dr Oxendine seems impressed with CA standards. Clarifies they
are looking at old CA standards, not CC. #ASRC

Co-Chair Peek: I like this framekwork. How do our current
standards fit in this framework? #ASRC #StopCommonCore
12:24 PM - May 18, 2015

@APDillon_

McCollum clarifies - a lot of what teachers need is already
embedded. #ASRC #StopCommonCore
Does that mean the CA standards have CONTENT?

@APDillon_

Covil: Is each standard laid out in this format? #ASRC

Peek: There is an absence of the framework CA old standards
has in our CC standards in NC. #ASRC #StopCommonCore

Peek directs Jo Ferrara to reach out to someone who has used
the CA standards. #ASRC #StopCommonCore

Oxendine: Our nc CC standards would 'not be so bad' if they
had a framework like CA's old standards. #ASRC

Common Core today? #ASRC #StopCommonCore

@APDillon_

Again, I ask why the cmte is looking at CA for ELA when Mass.
is so superior? #ASRC #StopCommonCore
