Louisiana Public Square on LPB: FORUM- "01/14 - Decoding Common Core

(click on the title above to go to the LPB program page)

From LPB's website:

"Louisiana is one of forty-five states that have adopted the Common Core State Standards for Math and Language Arts, the first-ever national academic standards. Supporters of the Common Core standards say they will increase rigor and help every student learn what they need to succeed. Critics say the standards are untested, being poorly implemented and lower expectations for students.
So, what do Louisiana educators, parents and students think about Common Core? Do the new guidelines encourage students to think and be more persuasive, or do they stifle educational innovation by removing local control? Louisiana Public Square explores the controversial academic standards on “Decoding Common Core” Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at 7pm on LPB HD."
