October 5, 2013 – Sioux Falls, South Dakota

My School Says It’s Just Standards.
Isn’t That True?
Common Core Standards are a set of Math and English Language Arts Standards that have currently been adopted by 46 states and the District of Columbia.


  • Is South Dakota able to change the content of the standards?
  • Who will have control over the standards in the future to revise them if they aren’t working in the classroom?
  • How do the standards affect curriculum?
  • What is meant by “rigorous” and “college and career ready?”
  • What is “NEW MATH” and is it good?
  • What are the concerns associated with the testing aspect of the Common Core?
  • What is a Common Core ASSESSMENT AND WHAT DOES IT TEST?
  • Do you know what is in your CHILD’S 400-POINT DATA FILE?
  • Is the federal government involved in the Common Core Standards?
  • What is the COST to the TAXPAYERS OF SOUTH DAKOTA?
  • Are there concerns about the DEVELOPMENTAL APPROPRIATENESS of the curriculum?
  • Where is all this taking us?
