Over the last several months, there has been much discussion and concern over Common Core State Standards. Media, political groups, parent groups and others have expressed varying degrees of concern or support for such standards. In a recent conversation I had with a concerned parent, I expressed to him my surprise to him that with all the attention given these standards, not a single parent or group had approached me to ask how Weber High implements or is effected by these standards. His reply to me was, “What effort have you made to inform parents of the way Weber High implements or is effected by them?” His point was valid and my efforts to inform about these standards and their effect on Weber High needed improvement. So, what exactly are the Common Core State Standards and how have they effected Weber High?
