NWCS puts up periscope on Common Core

In an attempt to avoid ignoring either the state or federal governments, the Northern Wells Community Schools board members were told to placate both Tuesday evening during the board’s meeting.

During that meeting, Abby Nagel, Title 1 director for NWCS, presented updated information on the Common Core curriculum, a nationwide attempt to unite states' learning standards behind one common initiative.

The curriculum, though, has met resistance among legislators and residents.

To learn more about Northern Wells' administrators' thoughts, read the Wednesday, June 19, News-Banner.

Also, the Indiana Department of Education has provided online resources that explain the history of the curriculum and resources for teachers to implement it (scroll down to find the resources).
