Delayed curriculums and heavy workloads for Baltimore County teachers are the result of a switch to tougher teaching standards called “the Common Core.” Now the school board has a grievance on its hands backed by every teacher in the district.
Parents continue to express their outrage toward the Common Core curriculum now being used across the state of Maryland. Despite the Department of Education’s claims this type of education elevates a child’s education, parents say it dumbs it down.
Prosecutors have decided to drop all charges against a Baltimore County father arrested after repeatedly questioning school administrators at a town hall meeting. The confrontation was all caught on camera.
The Maryland State Department of Education plans to host four regional forums over the next month to help explain the Common Core State Standards for schools.
