When the Academic Standards Review Commission meets Friday afternoon members will review how North Carolina students fared on the 2015 NAEP tests. The so-called Nation’s Report Card measures the proficiency of 4th and 8th graders in reading and math.
The discussion about students’ ability to perform at or above a proficient level comes as commission members decide whether to scrap the Common Core State Standards.
Steve Parrott, president at Wake Ed Partnership, is among those advocating to keep Common Core.
Parrott appeared last week on NC Policy Watch’s News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon. Click below to hear an excerpt from that interview:
