New Missouri Learning Standards Approved
The Missouri Board of Education has given its approval to new learning standards in math, English, social studies and science for public school students. The new education benchmarks will replace Common Core standards. Missouri lawmakers passed a bill forcing the state board to come up with the new standards two years ago. Schools will have to start using the guidelines this fall, with testing based on them beginning in spring 2018.
About time. Common Core is making idiots of our children. Go back to the protocol we were taught in the 1960’s. Way to go, Missouri!
