Thank-you Mitchell Superintendent, Joe Graves, for standing with the families of Mitchell and local control.
During the meeting’s public commentary segment, Mitchell resident Steve Sibson expressed concern about the pending statewide adoption of common core curriculum standards.
“It’s my belief that common core is not about the quality of education, but the control of our kids,” Sibson said.
“Common core is not the way to go,” agreed Graves, who said the district is being forced into preparing curricula to meet the new standards. Graves said after the meeting the move to common core standards in math, English and other subjects in the future is a move toward a federal curriculum.
